    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 but leaving the slaughter in it Blood out of piles of corpses good sexual related blood bad style I guess everyone knows the story that it nearly wouldn´t have come to King´s career if his wife wouldn´t have found the manuscript but there is something else about the development of this book I keep asking myself Did he get this inspiration while working as a teacher was a young lady who asked to go to the toilet or home because she had cramps the reason why one of the best authors of all time had his breakthrough? Is human reproduction to thank for that we got all these amazing works? The harshness and directness of this very young writing King is amazing I remember so many details although there is close to no real action or plot until everyone gets a surprising finale event fun horror bloodbath Religion and its potential negative side effects on the wellbeing extraversion and self confidence not too speak of sex education play a key role here too because all of this couldn´t have been possible without a mixture of hardliner extremism and madness resulting in poor Carrie having anger management problems that are not really reduced by the sociodynamics of hormone high high schoolers with horrible attitudes highlighted through the hilariousness of human culture and tradition I don´t know why I h ed so much sorry maybe possession especially strange because I am a bit too old for that and have the wrong gender possibly and hopefully it´s a succubus after long hard years of trying to invoke one or why not as many as possible It could have happened so much earlier if there wouldn´t have been this lack of virginity and already inherent madness problems that made me look less attractive to possess than an innocent naive virgin I have to keep an aesthetic erotic sadomasochistic love hate sick roleplay memory picture for the next resurgence to wait and save myself up for the perfect monster girl and discipline my weak flesh to not faint in the face of other cheap worthless earthy fading seduction But finally the self flagellation animal sacrifices and sexy female devil worship have made sense and I bravely sacrifice myself to help expanding their powerBut whatever demon it might really be if it´s true beware many enemies mine Everything is possible for a true believer in the dark forces Mwahahaha Fun fact It speaks for itself that the movie adaption of a tale about a victimized girl exaggerating self defense had the German title „Carrie Des Satans jüngste Tochter“ Carrie the youngest daughter of Satan I find it extremely inappropriate that she has been discriminated and falsely accused of satanism when her only real crime was killing a few hundred people Shame on my native tongueTropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres uniue

    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 traumaticAny suggestions?Um BTW this book is AMAZING I should give it than 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 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 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 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 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

    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 Billy 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 pleasure of Sissy Spacek reading it to me as I ran around for the last two days

    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 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 Conseuence 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 simpleI 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 allVote 85«Notizia di cronaca riportata dal settimanale Enterprise di Westover Maine il 19 agosto 1966PIOGGIA DI PIETRECi viene riferito che una pioggia di pietre è caduta da un cielo perfettamente sereno su Carlin Street nella città 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 è una ragazzina che insegue una vita normale senza mai raggiungerla E uesto non perché dotata di poteri telecinetici ma perché 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 è un'emarginata viene costantemente bullizzata E purtroppo Carrie sta per raggiungere il limite di sopportazioneTorna uno dei temi secondo me più cari all'autore presente spesso in molte sue pagine il bullismo Oggetto delle prevaricazioni altrui è ogni volta un personaggio che agli occhi di molti appare strano diverso Il bellissimo paradosso di uesto romanzo è che per gli altri ragazzi la stranezza di Carrie non sta nella telecinesi uesto talento è sempre riuscita a tenerlo nascosto L'emarginazione di Carrie deriva più semplicemente dal fondamentalismo della madre la sua vera nemesi Più che horror uesto è un dramma bello e buonoMi aspettavo un'opera un po' acerba che testimoniasse insomma di essere il primo romanzo ad essere pubblicato da uno degli autori più prolifici che io conosca nonché uno dei miei preferiti E invece no Carrie è un'opera bella non perché dotata di uella bellezza grezza delle opere prime che lasciano intravedere un talento che sta per esplodere No uesto romanzo è bello e bastaVoto 85

    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 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 you 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 to 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 Carrie could serve as a cautionary tale if you don’t just look at it as a creepy horror novelKing started here so should you? 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 you have given a few of his other books a try But you can try it first too probably doesn’t matter – it is just my gut feeling that you should wait

    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 if you already know the main highlightsThere 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 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 you 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 Stephen King's debut published novel? No sweat you can read almost 40 years later the novel knowing ahead the story and still you get engaged into the book due the great management of the author on the presentation of the story UNUSUAL BUT BRILLIANT NARRATIVE STYLE Maybe nowadays it could be a pretty standard way to tell the story but 40 years ago?Visionary styleThe narrative plays with current events in the story with excerpts of supposed books and documents written in the future of the story Even you have to take in account that the very novel is kinda an alternate history story due that it's set in 1979 but the publication was on 1974 and there are many references on the supposed investigative books there with dates even in the future Other powerful element on Carrie is that its main topic is still as relevant now than in 1974 since that topic is BULLLYING The bullying is main trigger in the story and you can't deny that it's a topic that sadly is the same as important now if not than in 1974 Because of that Carrie didn't age and it didn't lose its appealing to new readers I think that main storyline and plot are well set and developed GETTING INTO THEIR SKINS My only complains would be in the character developing area andor the justification of some actionsI say this that while the evil characters like Chris Hargensen and Billy Nolan are satisfying developed and with really interesting reactions of bothIn the case of Miss Dejardin and Sue Snell I think that they could use a better setting of their motivations to help Carrie White and not a sudden impulse of being good samaritans More interaction between Carrie White and her mother could be appreciated Changing to other subjects I think that it's a general misconception that Carrie White went insane crazy etcOh no no my friendsShe wasn't crazy A crazy person don't think in a clear way and it's obvious that Carry once she unleashed her rage she took steps to protect her work that a crazy person wouldn't do Of course I am not saying that Carrie was a sane personDefinitely she was a psychopathic person that it's waaaaay different than a crazy personEven some events in her confrontation with her mother and later her encounter with Sue Snell leave clear evidence that Carrie White was thinking in a certain level of rational logic maybe irrational for you but when you try to think what could mean to be Carrie Whiteyou can realize why some odd events have all the logic in the odd world of Carrie Changing the subject again Please indulge me I promise that's the last timeThe novel even leave a certain open frame for a potential seuel Forty years later you could think that that would never happens BUT seeing a recently published seuel for The Shiningso anything can happens

    “People don't get better they just get smarter When you get smarter you don't stop pulling the wings off flies you 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 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 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 you have no friends or people to stand by you or a mother who’s supportive and can guide 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 forgivenessIf you’ve seen the movie – or better yet the movies – then you’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 you wanting and of that horror and terrorIt’s a small enough novel it’ll take you no time at all to read it So if you’ve seen the movies then don’t be hesitant about it Just do it You won’t regret it

    “Jesus watches from the wallBut his face is cold as stoneAnd if he loves meAs she tells meWhy do I feel so all alone?” I remember watching the movie when I was very little I was pretty much petrified by it The image of a poor girl covered in pig blood going on a killing spree haunted me and here I am today reading it for the first time awfully distraught and yet incredibly mesmerized by King's writing No wonder he is where he is today A true genius
