This was a unique read, nothing like I thought it would be. I had seen the movie (the original with Sissy) and I assumed it would be, well, like the movie. And to an extent it was, but really not at all.

The book does an impeccable job of getting inside the character's heads and telling the story via newspaper clippings, personal accounts, science books, police reports, and more. It is not a cut and dried story with three parts (beginning, middle, and end) it only centers around one main event, Carrie White's prom. And the whole time you basically know what is going to happen, but the suspense keeps building and you keep willing the outcome to change.

Fantastic, creepy, read that really gets in your head. A great introduction to horror or Stephen King books for the non-reader.
