    "Good story, but not so horrifying"

    I had quite high expectations for this book, that's probably why I was a little disappointed. The story is, without a doubt, original and a bit addictive, but it didn't give me the chills. I hoped for a good old horror story, but it was more a description of a tragedy with quotes from different books about telekinesis.
    But don't get me wrong, it was worth the listen! I love King, but it wasn't as horrifying as some of his other stories.

    "Much better than the film."
    Where does Carrie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top five out of all audiobook listened to so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Carrie herself. trapped in the body of an adolescent girl, tortured by her estranged mother and school friends who as we all know can be horrible in themselves.


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

    Excellent choice of narrator. Sissy brought out all the feeling behind the characters portrayed in the book. Obviously seeing Sissy as Carrie in the film helped however Sissy brought to the book a professionalism that was believable.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The point where Carrie prepares for the Prom attends the dance and naturally fits in until the events that brought forward the catastrophe.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely worth listening to this book. The story brings to the reader the tale of a young girl persecuted for the way she was brought up through no fault of her own and then takes matters into her own hands in a devastating manner.
