Stephen King's legendary debut, about a teenage outcast and the revenge she enacts on her classmates. Carrie White may have been unfashionable and unpopular, but she had a gift. Carrie could make things move by concentrating on them. A candle would fall. A door would lock. This was her power and her sin. Then, an act of kindness, as spontaneous as the vicious taunts of her classmates, offered Carrie a chance to be a normal and go to her senior prom. But another act--of ferocious cruelty--turned her gift into a weapon of horror and destruction that her classmates would never forget."

Carrie. What a story. One of the first Stephen King ever wrote and, in my opinion, one of his best. It's a story for any one who has ever been bullied, picked on, ridiculed, pushed around, undermined...you get the picture. One thing that I really liked was how fluid the read was. This was actually the first Stephen King book I've ever read and the pages just melted away....page after page....until the book was done in a matter of days. Easy read and very entertaining.
