Carrie | Stephen King | Review

“Did any of you stop to think that Carrie White has feelings? Did any of you ever stop to think? Sue? Fern? Helen? Jessica? Any of you? You think she’s ugly. Well, you’re all ugly. I saw it on Friday morning.”





Carrie has a terrifying power, one that she knows she should not use, but she can’t help it. Carrie has been scorned and humiliated one too many times, in a sudden fit of rage her power is unleashed with devastating consequences.


This is going to be a very short review. Not because it was a bad book but just because I haven’t got much to say about it. This was the third Stephen King book that I read. I was really surprised when I picked it up because it was so short compared to his others. But I did enjoy it, it intrigued me throughout and I liked the plot. I found that it was very predictable and I knew what was going to happen from the offset. I did feel connected to Carrie and various other characters, but whilst connected I didn’t find myself invested which is what I really look for in a 5 star book. It wasn’t as much of a thriller as I had hoped and it didn’t keep me as hooked as his other books have. It’s still a 4 star for me as I did like it but I just didn’t love it for the 5 star rating.
