[Stephen King] ✓ Carrie [appomattox-campaign PDF] Ebook Epub Download Ç English Carrie Italiano News item from the Westover Me Weekly Enterprise, August 19, 1966 RAIN OF STONES REPORTEDIt was reliably reported by several persons that a rain of stones fell from a clear blue sky on Carlin Street in the town of Chamberlin on 17th August The stones feel principally on the home of Mrs Margaret White, damaging the roof extensively and ruining two gutters and a downspout valued at 25 Mrs White, a widow, lives with her three year old daughter, Carrieta Carrie is a teenager chasing an ordinary life, never able to catch it This is not due to her telekinetic powers, the problem has far to do with her mother, a person that we will define religious zealot, to say the least Consequence Carrie is definitely fringe Everybody is invited to the Prom Dance THAT ENDING THAT YOU RE EXPECTING It s very interesting to read Carrie finally I have watched the Brian de Palma s adaptation, so I wasn t unfamiliar with what would happen.
However, the way as Stephen King wrote this book was in such great way that the novel is still engaging not matter if you already know the main highlights.
There are some books that if you knew what will happenkaput All the fun was spoiled and you won t get interested on reading the book BUT in here, Stephen King gave you the highlights right away You haven t advanced even few pages and you already know that Carrie White has Telekinetic powers and something really bad happened in the Prom Night THE BOOK WHICH STARTED STEPHEN KING S CAREER I think that it s the best testimony to Stephen King s genius in this, his very first novel the first to be published but in reali I have decided to go back and reread all the Stephen King books as audiobooks this time Ones I have read recently or that I have already reread I may not do I am starting at the very beginning with Carrie which I originally read on Kindle in 2014.
You might be saying, But, Matthew, that was his first book You didn t read it for the first time until 2014 There are a couple of reasons for that 1 Carrie is referenced a lot in pop culture Growing up in the 80s and 90s you really didn t need to read Carrie to know the story.
2 I did have a paperback copy once mid 90s or so It fell apart when I was part way through I didn t get back to it until 2014 I know, I know serious procrastination Well, I have now read it twice a Poor Carrie, all she wants is to be normal Instead, she has telekinesis, a balls on nuts mom, and a school full of bullies to deal with daily.
Her peers are hideous particularly Tommy, who I picture as a douchebag who wears sunglasses inside, refers to girls as bitties , and has his wallet attached to his pants by a chain he bought at Hot Topic We all know the type His girlfriend sucks too but she seems a product of horrible parenting and peer pressure I don t know, maybe I am going too easy on herCarrie doesn t Anyway, Carrie has had enough and flexes her new power in the Stephen Kingyest of ways.
It s brilliant.
every time I read it This time I had the pleasure of Sissy Spacek reading it to me as I ran around for the last two days.
I loved how intertwined with religion it was Not churches and stuff like that I mean hardcore stuff about the point where religion stops being religion and transforms into fanaticism and how a person can drive themselves crazy with it, especially if you already have the tendency towards the crazy And Margaret White definitely had the tendency towards craziness She s a prejudiced, maniacal, insane person who believes that women are constantly living in sin because of their gender Sex is poison, sexual pleasure is a sin When she got pregnant she tried to kill the baby Now, after 17 years she self harms herself to stop her daughter King King bulling .

Carrie is told using an interesting structure, alternating passages from Carrie s timeline as it unfolds and excepts from accounts of what happened at the prom in the far future The structure reminded me of Not Comin Home to You at times I think Block did it better The story itself is pretty good It s a Jesus watches from the wall,But his face is cold as stone,And if he loves meAs she tells meWhy do I feel so all alone1974 1974 Challenge Accepted 1984 13 1976 The Haunting of Hill House 28 2018 5 2018 Sleeping Beauties
