Carrie by Stephen King

Anyone who loves Stephen King horror novels or movies will definitely love this book. I couldn’t put it down because of the entertainment it gave me. I personally love the way Stephen King writes and this book was a perfect example of that.

Carrie is the story of a timid, shy girl who is ridiculed and verbally abused or bullied everyday by her senior class. Little does she know she has a telekinetic power she is barely noticing. She ends up using this power to her advantage for revenge on her classmates for what they put her through on Prom night.

It’s a classic horror novel and a film as well. It’s creepy and serves as a thriller because the issue of bullying is so common today and the fact the tables are turned on her classmates is a great twist to a horror story. This is why this story will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire book.

I loved this book and will read it and watch the movie again and again because I’ve always loved the horror themes in films and in books. If you love stories about revenge, I definitely recommend this book because even though the book serves for entertainment to scare people, a lot of Stephen King’s novels have a hidden underlying moral theme to them. In the case of Carrie it teaches the audience the effects of bullying with a horror story that will make you remember Carrie forever.
