Hey everyone, So the 2nd of Stphen King's novels to reach the reviews this month is "Carrie". Like many of Stephen King's novels, "Carrie" was turned into a movie (the older film is the best) starring
Sissy Spacek in the title role as the girl that discovers that she is telekinetic and uses this to full affect against those who bully and ridicule her.
I like this book for a couple of
reasons, 1) I kind of wished I had those powers against those who bullied and ridiculed me at school and 2) Its a Stephen King book, what is not to like?
This is one of those books that I
read as a teen and then went on to see the movie some years later - the ending made me jump!
For me, "Carrie" isn't just a horror story, it is the story of a girl, treated like an outsider,
bullied at school and the strength she shows in overcoming that, (even if it is using telekinesis).
A 3 book rating from me, I'd definitely add this to your reading list if you haven't already.
