reading it for the first time awfully distraught and et incredibly mesmerized by King s writing No wonder he is where it for the first time awfully distraught and et incredibly mesmerized by King s writing No wonder he is where is today A true genius Carrie Stephen KingCarrie is a novel by American author Stephen King It was his first published novel released on April 5 1974 It revolves around the eponymous Carrie White an unpopular friendless misfit and bullied high school girl who uses her newly discovered telekinetic powers to exact revenge on those who torment her While in this process she causes one of the worst local disasters the town has ever had King has commented that he finds the work to be raw and with a surprising power to hurt and horrify It is one of the most freuently banned books in United States schools Much of the book uses newspaper clippings magazine articles letters and excerpts from books to tell how Carrie destroyed the fictional town of Chamberlain Maine while exacting revenge on her sadistic classmates and her own mother Margaret 2014 1390 280 9789642435821 20 3 1976 98 33 18 2013 99 30 84790678 People don t get better they just get smarter When ou get smarter Tomorrow Will Be a Good Day: My Autobiography you don t stop pulling the wings off fliesou just think of better reasons for doing it This is pizza the freaky flavorI 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 Representation Cultural Representations and Signifying Practices Culture Media and Identities Series 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 17ears she self harms herself to stop her daughter from disobeying her like a nice little sheepCarrie is the kind of girl who gets period and thinks she s bleeding to death Yes that s what happens when Five fags a day you have no friends or people to stand byou or a mother who s supportive and can guide Wicked Affairs p 2 you through stuff like this Every time Carrie commits a sin she s forced by Margaret to get locked inside a closet until she s repented for her sins by asking for forgivenessIfou ve seen the movie or better Jane of Gowlands yet the movies thenou re all too familiar with the plot and what happens What s worth the mention though it s the fact that while I too was familiar with the plot I felt like reading something new something I d never heard or seen before and that s the magic of Mr King s writing The way he combines the past with the present and horror seems all too real It s mouth watering and it leaves The Piper in the Wind you wanting and of that horror and terrorIt s a small enough novel it ll takeou no time at all to read it So if The Proposal you ve seen the movies then don t be hesitant about it Just do it You won t regret it I m taking this off the currently reading shelf at the moment because I really can t get into this book 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 happenHowever the way as Stephen King wrote this book was in such great way that the novel is still engaging not matter ifou already know the main highlightsThere are some books that if Prey you knew what will happenkaput All the fun was spoiled andou won t get interested on reading the book BUT in here Stephen King gave Addicted to Womanhood Book One you the highlights right away You haven t advanced even few pages andou already know that Carrie Whit. Carrie knew she should not use the terrifying power she possessed But one night at her. E 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 reality the fourth that he wrote He wasn t able to know then that the book will became a success and a staple book in the horror genre however thinking that that will happen it is clever not waiting long in the narrative to give the main highlightsSince if before ou still have to get spoiled of key events in storiesnowadays with internet social networks online news chatting forums etc it s really REALLY HARD to avoid getting spoiled when something that became so successfulBut with 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 reread I may not do I am starting the very beginning with Carrie which I originally read on Kindle in 2014You 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 that1 Carrie is referenced a lot in pop culture Growing up in the 80s and 90s ou really didn t need to read Carrie to know the story2 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 procrastinationWell I have now read it twice and it really is uite an amazing book Lots of suspense and terrifying scenes crammed into a small package In the intro King said that he was working on this as a short story when it expanded into a novel and I can see that He was mainly a short story guy at the time but a bit started pouring out and
he just couldn t stop it s amazing just couldn t stop It s amazing think the same guy that started with short stories and short novels ended up writing books like The Stand and ItOne thing that I think people who do not read King but who only know him as the master of horror through movies and hearsay are missing a lot He is not just horror Certainly there are many horrific scenarios in Carrie but there is so much in there about humanity how we treat each other and how our actions toward others may have a wider effect than expected In a world where we are #starting to treat other people poorly than ever #to treat other people poorly than ever could serve as a cautionary tale if Once is Never Enough you don t just look at it as a creepy horror novelKing started here so shouldou Carrie is not usually a book I recommend to people wanting to try King for the first time I am not sure why this is but I usually recommend The Dead Zone or Pet Sematary After my second time through I stand by this I think that Carrie is something to try out after Successful Employee Communications you have given a few of his other books a try Butou can try it first too probably doesn t matter it is just my gut feeling that ou should wait English Carrie Italiano News item from the Westover Me Weekly Enterprise August 19 1966RAIN 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 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 dailyHer 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 waysIt s brilliantevery time I read itThis time I had the pleasur. Senior prom Carrie was scorned and humiliated just one time too many and in a fit of un. .
E of Sissy Spacek read I want to start a shelf of books that traumatized me as a child with
of girls 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 traumaticAny suggestionsUm BTW this book is AMAZING I should give #It Than Three Stars There #than three stars There Four This is one of those books where ou re just like DUDE how did ou even come UP with these THOUGHTS I mean I thinkstories of girls
we take it all for granted now but honestly this booktake it all for granted now but honestly this book 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 ears but I remember many scenes in it so vividly and not just because of the movie which is of course also greatI 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 Un amor fora ciutat 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 be disgusting 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 Soeah 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 wasBut 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 uality 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 CarrieIs 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 When people talk about bathroom scenes there is always this psychobabble but I prefer to remember this ode on teenage dirtbag cruelty with psiI assume everyone knows the story so there are unmarked spoilers in the spookhouse club King loves outsiders losers and outlaws so what could be better than to start one s career with a meanwhile legendary pop cultural reference to serious puberty issues and female problems So that the unwilling antagonist unleashed but sadly not controlled and cultivated dark elemental forces to become for instance instead a classy dark fantasy black witch and thematized premenstrual syndrome Sorry I couldn t withstand the bad pun please don t high voltage energize and burn me There is definitively symbolism I should have had focus on when reading it the first time but even without that the idea of using menstruation as a plot device is something predestined for the master of horror Probably there are cultures censoring this part Controllable fury she turned her clandestine game into a weapon of horror and destructi.
