*The following review contains some spoilers*
Carrie. A true underdog story…
That is if you consider a teenage girl, who kills all her classmates and destroys her town in the process, an underdog.
Which by the way… I think I do.
It surprised me how well King managed to get inside the mind of a teenage girl. The horror element of the novel
At first I considered this novel to be for adults, mostly because of the horror and violence, and of course because I regard King as a writer for adults.
Carrie endures undeserved bullying at school,
I already knew what this novel was about before reading it. It is hard to avoid reference to it in most teenage films and TV shows!
I would give this book an 8/10, it is difficult to give Stephen King anything lower! How he manages to write so many well written, gripping books is beyond me! Even if you already know the story or have seen the films I would still advise you to read the book, it may surprise you. It definitely surprised me!
