    "Makes a good audible book"

    The narration by Sissy Spacek is a plus.
    I actually enjoyed the audible version better than the book...it's an early work by King and some areas are rough, but it is much less noticeable when you are listening to the audible version.

    "Love it."

    Carrie was my introduction to Stephen King. After this I devoured all his early novels as soon as they were published. How did a man get into the souls of teenage girls?

    "Stephen King never disappoints!"
    Where does Carrie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The fact that this book is narrated by Sissy Spacek is just about everything!! Brings you back to each movie scene.


    What other book might you compare Carrie to and why?

    I don't have a specific title to compare to, but I can say I never became bored listening to this one and couldn't wait to download the next Stephen King book.


    What about Sissy Spacek’s performance did you like?

    It was AMAZING!!! She put so much emotion and acting into it. She played out every scene perfectly.


    Who was the most memorable character of Carrie and why?

    I would say Carrie and Miss DesJardin stood out the most for me

    "I'm not at all happy with this book"

    I know it was kings first but I'm not at all happy with how it was written I loved the movie and it was well written and he did that. it was great that Sissy Spacek read it especially since she was Carrie in the original movie but other than that I found i through I spent most of the time making notes when the book marked go making my own comments. I really am unhappy with the book.

    "Classic King"

    Classic story about a bullied girl who has the power for revenge. I'm glad I listened to the audio book, the ending was quite different from the movie! Sissy spacek narrates wonderfully, not that much of a surprise since she was the original Carrie. #EssentialKing

    Story
    "Sissy Spacek does it again!"
    If you could sum up Carrie in three words, what would they be?

    Horror, dark, gory.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the character of Carrie. She's been bullied all of her life by her classmates, teachers, and even her own mother. Now, I was really shocked by all of the things that people did to her, and I was glad when she got her payback at prom.


    What does Sissy Spacek bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Sissy made the story come alive, her soft voice, and creepy deminer of the story really helps. I also think it helps that she played Carrie in the 1976 film, so she's experienced the story already.


    If you could take any character from Carrie out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I don't think I could. All of the characters are important to the story, and effect Carrie in some way.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved it!! I would totally recommend it to any fan of either Stephen King's, or Sissy Spacek's works.

    "Loved Sissy Spacek Narrating"

    I had seen the movie before I had read the book, but as always the book was far better than any of the movies made. With everything Carrie had been through, you find yourself rooting for her to get retaliation. This is a classic story of abuse and revenge. It's a great read.

    It was especially fun that Sissy Spacek narrated the book since she played the original Carrie.

    "Wonderful story"

    I loved it because Sissy read it.
    The audio was ok, sometimes it sounded like it was recorded on an old tape cassette.
