    Story
    What did you love best about Carrie?

    The depiction of a young girl under the mental duress of her peers. She carried both an innocence and growing evilness, brought on by what's sometimes regarded as the in-crowd in high school situations. Her character grew well throughout the story, until like a twig, it finally snapped and caught fire.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the way the reports of the incident were portrayed in the question and answer sessions, not to mention Carrie, the character herself. King's portrayal of an impoverished girl rising out of the ashes, taken to the high school dance, and then exacting vengeance at that moment when all the innocence, replaced by a need for revenge, snowballs (or in this case fireballs) into a final conclusion.


    What about Sissy Spacek’s performance did you like?

    As in the movie itself, Sissy Spacek's performance was striking. The only other thing that could have made it better, possibly, was King reading the work himself.


    Who was the most memorable character of Carrie and why?

    Carrie, of course, would be the towering character here, followed by her mother, obsessed with religion, to the point where things become dangerous and dark.


    Any additional comments?

    While always a fan of Stephen King, I hadn't read Carrie, but watched in the movies quite a few years ago. It was a solid read, and I loved the opening by Stephen King as to his thoughts of Carrie, and what sparked the novel into being.
