In one way or another, everybody abused Carrie. Her fanatical mother forbade this sixteen-year-old misfit everything that was young and fun. She was teased and taunted by her classmates, misunderstood by her teachers, and given up as hopeless by almost everyone. But Carrie had a secret: she posessed terrifying telekinetic powers that could make inanimate objects move, a lighted candle fall, or a door lock. Carrie could make all kinds of startling bizarre, and malevolent things happen. And so she did one night, when feeling scorned and humiliated, and growing angrier and angrier, she became the vengeful demon who let the whole town feel her power.… (mer)

I really enjoyed this book. This is my first Stephen King book and I really liked his writing style. I really haven't read any horror books and I know that this isn't King's most terrifying book out there, but I think it was a good book to get me introduced to that genre as well as an introduction to his writing. That being said, I know that this is the first King book and I don't know if his writing in later books changes in style or further develops but I definitely want to read more of his books and find out. Carrie was not a very long book, only 250 pages or so, but I think that was a good amount for this story. It took me a while to get used to the narrative of the story occasionally being interrupted to talk about the aftermath of the story, but once I did get used to it, I really enjoyed those bits. I think King did I really good job rooting this story in reality. I found myself really believing that this was a story that could have been true and could have happened in this world. I also thought King did an amazing job when it came to building tension. although I have never read this book before or seen either of the movie adaptions, this story is infamous enough that I did have some idea about what the outcome of this book was going to be, but even with having an idea about the ending of the book I was still on the edge of my seat while reading it. The last few pages of this book where a mom is writing a letter to someone about her daughter who clearly has Carrie's skills left me so intrigued and I wish I could know how she turned out. If she had a happy life or if she went a little crazy like Carrie did Overall I really enjoyed this read. I've really been wanting to get into the horror genre lately and I think this was a great introduction. I own four other Stephen King books and I know the I definitely want to pick those up and read them soon. I found Carrie to be very approachable as a story of King's and I would enchorage anyone who wants to read a book by him to check this one out. ( )

The absolute scariest thing about most Stephen King novels is that they are only slightly out of the realm of impossible. With a little twist of science and magic any of his stories could be reality. Take Carrie: could a girl with telekinesis powers; one who is bullied relentlessly at home and school, be pushed to the point of a colossal psychotic break; one which causes her to go more than a little berserk? Well, sure. Especially if this same said girl has an overly devout yet highly paranoid mother who loves her to the point of fanatic torture. Most definitely.
Carietta "Carrie" White was bullied and tortured all through grade, middle, and high school. For her schoolmates she was an easy target with her abundance of acne, weird ill-fitting clothes, severe lack of hygiene, and apparently absent communication skills. Her uncomprehending grunts and blank stares only fueled their taunts. Unfortunately, there is one classmate who wants to make it up to Carrie.
What makes Carrie so scary is how King intersperses the story with snippets from psychological papers regarding Carrie and her telekinesis. These interruptions give a sense of reality to the horror. ( )

I thought this book would scare me more than it did. Maybe because I already knew the story (except the ending) it didn't have the surprise elements that might have made more scared.
'Carrie' was nonetheless an entertaining read and I'll definitely read more of Stephen King's work. ( )

Well-written and suspenseful, but not my cup of tea. ( )

And so starts my deep dive back into Stephen King's back catalogue. For now, I've determined to read at least the first 20ish books again. I may just say to hell with it and barrel through them all. We shall see. In the meantime, on with the review.

I read this book about forty years ago, and have dipped back in here and there over the years, but never completed a second full read until today.

It's interesting that, at least to me, I get the impression that Stephen King tends to use a bit of an apologetic tone when he discusses Carrie and I've never really understood why. Some of it seems to come from the fact that he wrote a novella-length story, then "padded" it with reports and interviews and observations. Some of it seems to come from a perceived lack of quality that would infuse his later works.

But to me, this story is damn near perfect. The story is classic, often mistaken for the ultimate revenge story, but really not. The way King used blood as the recurring harbinger of evil, from Carrie's first period, through her mother's religious rants, through the gathering of the pig's blood and, of course, the ultimate degradation of Carrie at the end. But he also used that roadhouse as the "house of sin" for both Carrie's father and Billy.

And for me, those areas of padding simply add to the story, providing subtext and nuance to the proceedings.

My only thought was, I might have moved some of the giveaways around so they showed up after the incidents, but I can also see how King used them to tighten the screws of suspense as well.

And I have to say, have recently read some stories like [b:The Exorcist|179780|The Exorcist|William Peter Blatty|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1375168676s/179780.jpg|1945267] and [b:The Case Against Satan|24612020|The Case Against Satan|Ray Russell|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1439904470s/24612020.jpg|44223119] (as two examples), where the payoff happened at the end of the book, but only within a very few pages. In Carrie, King dove into the deep end and took at least a quarter of the book to show us the full and utter destruction of the town, through Carrie's eyes, and through many of the other characters, both major and minor. To me, this is what makes this book far more satisfying than most of King's contemporaries.

I fully expected to go into this novel and cringe at some awkwardness or section that falls flat, forty years on. Instead, I fell deeply in love with this book for the second time.

Of course, it didn't hurt that Carrie White was 16/17 at the time of the novel, which was set in 1979. It was a fact that I didn't clue in to in all this time. In 1979, I was also 16, just going on 17. It's a little thing, but it's kind of cool. ( )

Sometimes, like now, the ivy looked like a grotesque giant hand ridged with great veins which had sprung up out of the ground to grip the building. She approached it with dragging feet.
She wished forlornly and constantly that Ewan High had individual - and thus private - showers like the ones at Andover or Boxford. They stared. They always stared.
Jesus watches from the wall, but his face is cold as stone. And if he loves me - as she tells me - why do I feel so all alone?
Your pimples are the Lord's way of chastising you.
"Red," Momma murmured. "I might have known it would be red."
