Carrie
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

Being a huge stephen king fan, it was so fun reading his first published novel. It was definitely a good read. Will read it again in a heartbeat

Last month's book club pick was a pretty entertaining read. Ever since I watched the movie in middle school (I'll never forget it 😳) the image of Carrie covered in blood was burned into my memory. But I kind of forgot how fucked up her mom was 😱 Poor Carrie just didn‘t quite know how to ask someone to #rescueme

I have never read this book before and I have never seen this movie 😆 And I‘m not a fan of Stephen King books. However, I thoroughly enjoyed this classic horror story! Pig‘s blood, knives, fire, revenge, and teenage angst all came together in a page turning thriller! Thanks @Meredith3 for choosing this for our #darguschfamilybookclub!

Nikki15 This is a great book! I must read it again some time. 3w

This movie breaks my heart. It‘s so sad & hard to watch. I‘m a sensitive person & this breaks my heart. My sister has never seen it, so I watched it with her (only for #scarathlon points). #TeamSlaughter #Carrie

MidnightBookGirl The book is sooooo good too! So glad King's wife fished it out of the trash! 4w

“I don't like to be tricked,” she said softly, and lowered her head. She hesitated for just a second and then passed him by. She stopped and turned and he suddenly saw #dignity in her, something so natural that he doubted if she was even aware of it. “Do You People think you can just go on tricking me forever? I know who you go around with.” #QuotsyOct19 #AllHallowsRead #GiveAScaryBook

Genre-horror this book is about a girl named carrie who has telekinesis and uses it to exact revenge on the teenagers who made fun of her and her over religious mother. She goes around the town and destroys the whole town as well as killing her mother only to get stabbed in the shoulder and then dying from her wounds.

Watching Carrie this fine Sunday afternoon for #scarathlon #teamslaughter 2pts @Clwojick

aquariusnat Awesome ! Not only did the book launch King's career , but the movie launched Spacek's career too ! Not many book to movie situations can claim that ! 1mo
madamereadsalot1 @aquariusnat it is cool! I really liked the book and this is my first time watching the movie as an adult. I was like 7 or 8 when I saw it originally, which is admittedly young. My parents were... lax, to put it simply. Not that it made a lot of sense back then. I'm enjoying it now. 1mo
aquariusnat Saw the movie first on cable back in the 80s then read the book . Still enjoy both over 35 years later ! 1mo

I got sucked into the wee hours of the morning reworking an original story. Since I'm just typing solely bad imitations of Stephen King-esque prose right now I need to throw in the towel and sleep

I haven‘t read much Stephen King. This was pretty good. I felt like I knew the story just from culturally absorbing it over the years.. so nothing was shocking, but it was well done. I did find it to be a bit dated. Some pretty icky sexist/racist bits.

Genre: Horror Fiction
Date started: September 12th 2019
Date completed:
I chose this book because I found the musical quite interesting. The novel is about a girl named Carrie who is bullied by her classmates because of her mothers extremely strict religious teachings, however what no one knows is that Carrie has some type of power.

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! 😊 6mo

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.
