Carrie | Stephen King
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

My bookstagram post for today. This is the last day of vacation and I‘m feeling a little under the weather. I picked this up off my shelf and I‘m almost done. I read Pet Sematary earlier this week. Who needs to wait for fall to read horror? Not me! 😁💀

I liked this so much more than I expected to! Iconic story of prom gone wrong. King‘s storytelling keeps you turning page after page, even when you know what‘s coming. Also, really interesting way of writing about women, their relationships with each other and with their bodies/blood. https://cannonballread.com/2019/08/carrie-elcicco/

It's taken me a few years to finish a classic Stephen King novel, and I'm so glad I did. Reading Carrie, which is King's first novel, has helped me to understand the author and where he's coming from. It becomes clear that King isn't some 'sicko' who takes pleasure in imagining such awful things, but is full of compassion for those who experience awful things, and like a good therapist, is not afraid to look directly at the worst things in life.

DaveGreen7777 I love your insight into King seeing things like a therapist would! Beautifully said, Sophie! 😊 3mo

Stephen King‘s first novel propelled him into the spotlight in part due to its raw, grisly nature; an average town with its stock cast of characters suddenly plunged into an unimaginable nightmare. But let‘s not pretend the 1976 film adaptation, a masterpiece in horror cinema, didn‘t aid this tale in becoming an icon. Carrie is violent, heartbreaking, and fierce, hindered by an unfocused and amateur writing style. 3/5.

“High school isn't a very important place. When you're going you think it's a big deal, but when it's over nobody really thinks it was great unless they're beered up.”

I first read this about 25 years ago but came across the audiobook narrated by Sissy Spacek so decided it was time for a reread. A classic King for sure.

gentlepet @ClairesReads honestly i stopped reading much for a couple years cos of migraines. Audiobooks have totally changed my life and allowed me to read voraciously again. There are some treasures out there. This is one. Sadie is another. I also massively stan Thandie Newton‘s narration of Jane Eyre. 7mo
ClairesReads @gentlepet that is the best. So important that you can get your reads in any way. It‘s essential for the soul. ❤️ Thandie Newton also! 7mo
danx I can‘t do audiobooks, I think just due to my audio time being taken up completely by music and I need ear rest time, but I just picked up Pet Sematary and will keep an out out for some others to try his work again. 7mo

It‘s all thanks to Tabitha King that we have this masterpiece. It has inspired so many movies and is referenced all the time in other works. I love the style in which it‘s written. It‘s a great book. I‘ve read it twice.

4/5 ⭐ - full review on my blog in bio.

I am probably one of the last people reading a Stephen King for the first time. Carrie was a lovely introduction to his world!

A story about Carrie, her crazy religious mother, her bullies and one prom night where everything goes horribly wrong.

This is a story that silently stands up to bullying, and by doing that raises such a strong voice in every corner of the world.

#horror #stephenking #carrie

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Great review! 9mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘m reading The Stand right now, only my 3rd King, and really my first of his “horror” stories. So you‘re not alone on this journey. 9mo
innah96 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Thank you Melissa. I am looking forward to reading more of his books :) 9mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @innah96 Me too, it took me a long time to decide to try one of his “horror” books, and I still went in at the shallow end of the pool. I started with 11/22/63 which was excellent and more time travel, and now have progressed to The Stand which is more human caused plague and good verses evil...sounds like Carrie was the same way, more bullying and great understory than straight up horror. 9mo
BridgetteM You are not alone! I haven‘t read a Stephen King novel... yet. Great review! 9mo

Not sure if there are any metal🤘🏻 fans here... I‘m not one myself, BUT, this is super cool and I‘ll give it a listen.

Band called ‘Ice Nine Kills‘ does songs based on horror movies, and various books! Their 2015 album is called Every Trick in the Book, and pictured above is what my coworker worked out to be the books each song is about.

So if it‘s your thing, check it out and enjoy!

Not his best novel, but it is quite impressivr if you remember it was King's debut. The way he dove into the psychology of the fate event was quite interesting.

Yesterday I was dragged to a Longhorn football game (I stuck it out til halftime and then I found a bar and read the tagged book on my phone), I made mulled wine, and I packed up my #witchpleaseswap!

I've read a total of five books this year. It's taken me a month reading Carrie, which usually takes me a few hours. I just can't concentrate on books anymore which makes me sad. To make it worse, most of my book collection is back home on the other side of the world.
