NEWLY ADAPTED FOR THE BIG SCREEN, STARRING CHLOE GRACE MORETZ AND JULIANNE MOORE. COMING TO MOVIE THEATERS EVERYWHERE OCTOBER 2013.
Stephen King's legendary debut novel about a teenage outcast and the revenge she enacts on her classmates.
Carrie White may have been unfashionable and unpopular, but she had a gift. Carrie could make things move by concentrating on them. A candle would fall. A door would lock. This was her power and her sin. Then, an act of kindness, as spontaneous as the vicious taunts of her classmates, offered Carrie a chance to be normal and go to her senior prom. But another act--of ferocious cruelty--turned her gift into a weapon of horror and destruction that her classmates would never forget

The book itself moves in a rush...it was a surprise to re-read the book and see how fuel-efficient it actually is.Read Full Review of Carrie
I liked how King used “documents” and “reports” to write the story. I kind of felt like it was one of those 20/20 specials (which was probably the intent). Overall, it’s a good, classic read to get you into the Halloween spirit.Read Full Review of Carrie
