Carrie A Modern Classic, Carrie Introduced A Distinctive New Voice In American Fiction Stephen King The Story Of Misunderstood High School Girl Carrie White, Her Extraordinary Telekinetic Powers, And Her Violent Rampage Of Revenge, Remains One Of The Most Barrier Breaking And Shocking Novels Of All TimeMake A Date With Terror And Live The Nightmare That IsCarrie Back Cover Outcast Carrie White has

and has been part of our cultural landscape since it was made into a movie in the late 1970s Somehow, I ve escaped reading it or seeing the movie until now I knew or thought I knew most of the

accepts, completely unaware of the horrors lurking on the horizonCarrie is Stephen King s first novel and has been part of our cultural landscape since it was made into a movie in the late 1970s Somehow, I ve escaped reading it or seeing the movie until now I knew or thought I knew most of the wrinkles of the plot going in, due to sai King s On Writing A Memoir of the Craft and numerous cultural references over the years.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 story of rejection, acceptance, betrayal, and bloody, horrible vengeance It very much feels like a first novel, over written in places, but there s still a certain Kingliness to it.While I wouldn t say I disliked the story, I wasn t in love with it It feels like a novellette that was padded to bring up to novel length to me Maybe it s because I already knew where the story was headed, both because of the structure and because it s been part of our pop culture for so long, I just wasn t hooked by it The ending was muchhorrific than I thought it would be, though The rampage was by far the best part of the book.Possible connection with another Stephen King story Teddy DuChamp, owner of Teddy s Amoco, is mentioned as having died in 1968 but his son still locks up the gas pumps The age doesn t seem right for Teddy DuChamp of The Body, though.I m glad Stephen King broke into the business with Carrie but it just wasn t my bucket of pigs blood Two out of five stars I want to start a shelf of books that traumatized me as a child with stories of girls who just could not stop gushing blood Down There, but I can t think of any others besides this and Bell Jar I know in Are You There God, It s Me Margaret they just couldn t stop TALKING about it, but I think that was different,just perplexing and annoying than actually traumatic.Any suggestions Um, BTW, this book is AMAZING I should give itthan three stars There Done Four This is one of thos I want to start a shelf of books that traumatized me as a child with stories of girls who just could not stop gushing blood Down There, but I can t think of any others besides this and Bell Jar I know in Are You There God, It s Me Margaret they just couldn t stop TALKING about it, but I think that was different,just perplexing and annoying than actually traumatic.Any suggestions Um, BTW, this book is AMAZING I should give itthan three stars There Done Four This is one of those books where you re just like, DUDE, how did you even come UP with these THOUGHTS I mean, I think we take it all for granted now but honestly, this book is amazing I mean, there s just so MUCH, from the scary religious fanatic mom to the pig s blood to the downed telephone wires to the I haven t read this in a hundred years, but I remember many scenes in it so vividly, and not just because of the movie which is, of course, also great.I really think this took a lot of guts to write I mean, the girls locker room scene, come ON, I mean, who did he think he WAS when he WROTE that I think he was still drinking then He must have been How much guts would that take, to be like, I m this guy and I m going to write this completely balls out preposterous scene of what I imagine it could be like inside a high school girls locker room, even though I obviously have NO IDEA Oh, yeah, and this unpopular naked teenage girl s going to be in there getting her period for the first time, and it s going to be INSANE Insanely bloody, that s what it s gonna be Yeah, that s right, blood EVERYWHERE It s a horror novel I m gonna start out with gore What could possibly bedisgusting and disturbing than bleeding out of one s most private orifice Well, I m sure I have no idea what that s like, really can t imagine it, the whole idea sounds totally crazy to me, that such a gross thing would happen to anyone but being inside a girls locker room, wow, well that really sounds intense too Though come to think of it, I have no idea what THAT would realistically be like either So yeah, but I m gonna write this scene anyway, gushing blood and mean naked high school girls and it s going to be COMPETELY %ing CRAZY And he did And it was.But it WORKED This novel was insane and fearless and obviously written by someone who had this story in him that needed to gush out like Carrie s menstrual blood and crazy telekinetic angst This is one of the books I think of when I get depressed about the idea of workshopped writing and the internal observing critic and all the rest of that limiting quality control type stuff Sometimes people need to tell the nasally fact checkers in their fevered brains to sit down and shut up, and drown out the voices of reason and temperance so they can let the wild stuff come out, and when they do, that s when they write Carrie.Is this the Classic of Western Literature No, not by most people s standards, and definitely not by mine But it is a damn good story, and I m glad he told it 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 seemsa product of horrible parenting and peer pressure I don t know, maybe I am going to Poor Carrie, all she wants is to be normal Instead, she has telekinesis,

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 farto do with her mother, a person that we will define religious zealot, to say the least Consequence Carrie is definitely fringe at school, she is constantly bullied And unfortunately Carrie is about to reach her breaking pointA history of bullying, a topic that the author describes so well also in many other pages, in my opinion Object of the abuse each time is a character who, in the eyes of many, seems weird The beautiful paradox of this novel is that, to other kids, Carrie s weird thing is not telekinesis She always managed to bury this talent Carrie s marginalisation simply results from her mum s fundamentalism, her real nemesis It s not an horror novel it s a drama, plain and simple.I was expecting a bit green work, something testifying this is the first published novel of one of the most prolific author I know and one of my favorites But no Carrie is a beautiful piece of art not because filled with that rough beauty typical of early works, revealing a blooming talent No This novel is a beautiful piece of art, that s all.Vote 8,5 Notizia di cronaca riportata dal settimanale Enterprise di Westover Maine il 19 agosto 1966 PIOGGIA DI PIETRE.Ci viene riferito che una pioggia di pietre caduta da un cielo perfettamente sereno su Carlin Street, nella citt di Chamberlain, il 17 agosto Diverse persone sarebbero state testimoni Le pietre sono cadute sulla casa della signora Margaret White, rovinando gravemente il tetto e sfondando due grondaie e un tubo di scolo per un danno di circa 25 dollari La signora White, vedova, abita nella casa di Grin Street con la figlioletta di tre anni, Carrie Carrie una ragazzina che insegue una vita normale, senza mai raggiungerla E questo non perch dotata di poteri telecinetici, ma perch si ritrova per madre una persona che a volerla definire fanatica per il suo modo di interpretare la religione cattolica significa farle un complimento Conseguenza Carrie a scuola un emarginata, viene costantemente bullizzata E purtroppo, Carrie sta per raggiungere il limite di sopportazioneTorna uno dei temi secondo me pi cari all autore, presente spesso in molte sue pagine il bullismo Oggetto delle prevaricazioni altrui ogni volta un personaggio che agli occhi di molti appare strano, diverso Il bellissimo paradosso di questo romanzo che per gli altri ragazzi la stranezza di Carrie non sta nella telecinesi Questo talento sempre riuscita a tenerlo nascosto L emarginazione di Carrie deriva pi semplicemente dal fondamentalismo della madre, la sua vera nemesi Pi che horror, questo un dramma bello e buono.Mi aspettavo un opera un po acerba, che testimoniasse insomma di essere il primo romanzo ad essere pubblicato da uno degli autori pi prolifici che io conosca nonch uno dei miei preferiti E invece no Carrie un opera bella non perch dotata di quella bellezza grezza delle opere prime, che lasciano intravedere un talento che sta per esplodere No Questo romanzo bello e basta.Voto 8.5
