    "Wonderful and yet..."

    I picked up this book after reading the back story of when Steven King wrote this Novel. I am not a horror fan, but this wasn't quite the needless butchering I usually hate. I am now a fan of Steven King writing. Amazing writing skill. The only grievance is the news reports. He would jump back and forth between the story and almost a panel of investigators. It made the final events anti climatic. I grunted every time the story would stop to hear a after article or police report in the middle of a scene. I didn't mind them in the beginning but they were like commercials: a few in the beginning but a ton at the end because they know you won't stop now. I would recommend it. Wonderful book. I felt a real connection to characters and events, truly a good read.

    "Brilliant"

    Listening to Sissy Spacek read Carrie is a real treat. She portrayed Carrie so brilliantly in the original film, and it's a joy to hear her read the full novel.

    "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
