Stephen King's legendary debut, 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 a 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.

5.0 Where it all began!
This novel showed true brilliance. At 13 years old I could not put this book down. It kept me up late at night. I would actually read with one eye open till I passed out. This book started a life long obsession with books. I definitely recommend it to everyone.

4.0 Carrie by Stephen King
This is definitely not one of my favorite Stephen King books. I still really enjoyed it, but I wish I had read this before I saw any of the adaptations of it. I knew what was going to happen and I feel like that took some of the fun out of it. I absolutely love the character of Carrie. She is so...

Generally speaking, I really enjoy King's writing. So far, I have read a collection of short stories, Cujo and The cell (which I didn't finish as it was too bloody for my taste back then) So..Carrie.I haven't seen any of the films based on this one and I wasn't familiar with the story before stumb...

5.0 Carrie
I always recommend this book to any one who has never read any Stephen King. Its a good starter novel into King's work. Not too long. The book doesn't weight 20 lbs. Not a lot of freaky supernatural. And well, it's a little gory but just at the end. It's a great read.
