What I thought

I loved this book a lot. I was a bit hesitant to read a Stephen King novel due to him being a massive bestseller horror writer and I was a bit meh in case I didn't see why everyone loved him. However I can see why he is so loved. His books hook you in and transport you to a world of horror and thrillers.

Carrie was set out in an amazing way such as reports from people, book extracts from survivors, police tapes and such. I love the different ways that the story was told and gave it a real sense of originality. The plot of the book was great and from the very first word it was packed with things happening. There did not seem to be one bit of the book which dragged.

The ending was weird for me, personally I didn't get it but I sort of did. I'm guessing if someone explained it then I would understand but apart from that I loved this book. I loved the character of Carrie and felt so sorry for her when she was getting picked on and I also got a soft spot for sue nearer the end.

I gave this book

5 out of 5
