Carrie - Stephen King 3.5/5
I saw the original 1976 film adaptation of Carrie years ago, so long ago in fact that I really only remembered bits and pieces of the prom scene. As many times as I've watched a film or tv adaptation of a book and been disappointed I for some reason still thought "well....I saw the movie, the book being short couldn't possibly add that much to the story..."
But seeing as how I'm trying to read every novel Stephen King has written I had to read this.
I'm super glad I did because I was 100% wrong. It's easy to see why Stephen King found success with Carrie. It's a great book, with amazing characters. Her mother gives me the creeps and was super scary and poor Carrie, you couldn't help but feel heartache for her. It's powerful and well written.
