What the community says about Carrie
There are no comments yet!
- "I absolutely loved this book. Carrie's story starts off grim and it easy to place yourself in her shoes. Even if you haven't been a victim of bullying, you can certainly relate to those subjected to it on an emotional level. However, in this story, Carrie just so happens to have telekinetic powers at her disposal to exact her revenge on those who pushed her around. This is the best anti-heroine book I've read. Unfortunately, the movie wasn't very good in my opinion. "

in What are the best horror books"Vintage King. Character development is so complete it gives this reader the feeling he is part of the story. A helpless voyeur, unable to do anything else but observe (almost like the character in "Autopsy: Room Four" from his collection, "Nightmares & Dreamscapes). Carrie's story is not only engaging, it is compelling and powerful. A young woman, possessed with unimaginable power in one of the most vulnerable times of a woman's life, struggles with the things in her life that makes her different. Her fragile ego is constantly being stressed by the ridicule she must endure and all the hateful things done to her. The story could not have ended better, though, of course, bittersweet on an incredibly horrible scale. (Incidentally, the movie with Sissy Spaceck and John Travolta is really quite good, and does not harm, whatsoever, to the book.) Of course I'd recommend buying this if you are looking for best horror and thriller books.""I don't think that Carrie is even the best Stephen King book turned into a horror movie. "IT" was much better as was the "Shining"""This book was so very interesting the way it switched from the book, to the newspaper, and to the book written by one of the characters. Stephen King's depiction of telekinesis was brilliant. Another thing that he nailed at was the character development. I took a liking for people such as Sue Snell and Miss Desjardin, while I loathed people such as Chris and Billy. Carrie White was a bold but fragile character who I was able to relate to, while her mother was an evil, abusive fanatic. King made us understand the disgusting thoughts we think about people who bully us and what we wish would happen to them. The psychological aspect beats the horror aspect by a long shot. It was a great, original thriller. I RECOMMEND THIS DEFINITELY!""Recommending the classic Carrie as a horror book seems like too safe an option to me, personally. While it is famous for being American Author Stephen King's first published work, it is not as terrifying as many of his later stories. Therefore, I feel as if this solution is just mentioning one of King's best known books, not selecting one of the best horror books of all time. King has scarier work, and authors other than King have scarier novels as well. While there's nothing wrong with Carrie, I don't think it should be mentioned among the best horror books of all time. Instead, it was only written by one of the best horror novelists of all time. I do not believe this solution, therefore, is effective.""I found "Carrie" to be a compelling piece of fiction that captures the essence and struggles of youth and adolescence in a way that is both believable and cringingly relatable. Author Stephen King creates an air of validity by using detailed (but fictional) newspapers, court transcripts, and personal memoirs to make the story seem real, in addition to the complex character development that one can sympathize with. While reading this, I truly felt for Carrie, and often imagined myself at that age again in some of her situations. Her actions and the drama that follows is certainly understood and even more enjoyable to experience when you feel as if you are going through the motions with her! ""If you are looking for a thriller than Carrie is the book for you, because even when I think about the story still, I still get nightmares and I cannot go back to sleep! Carrie is by far one of the most timeless and classic stories about how bullying can make people go insane and do terrible things to one another. This is a story that profoundly shocked me and continues to shape my idea of how fiction should be written. Stephen King is a genius who has the story telling skills to match. He introduces his readers to an immersive and frightening world where supernatural powers are possible and where revenge is almost a given. If you are searching for a thriller than Carrie is a must read!""This book really hits home for a lot of people. There are a lot of us that have been teased for being different and have had to endure the embarrassment that comes with it. This book is for those that like to see revenge come to those that have pushed the wrong person too far. The suspense of this movie will have you on the edge of your seat till the very end. A classic Stephen King base movie where all things build slowly increasing your anticipation until you finally get the climax you had been waiting for at the end. Not a movie for the little ones, but adults will find a great deal of satisfaction and suspense in this movie. ""A modern classic of the supernatural, this slim, straight-ahead thriller has served as a template for countless inferior imitations. It's still the real deal, though: sharply observed, solidly constructed, and suspenseful despite the narrative's sense of inevitability. Author Stephen King employs (fictional) newspaper reports, court transcripts, and personal memoirs to lend a sense of realism to the outlandish proceedings, and that strategy, in addition to the author's ability to create credible, sympathetic characters, works splendidly. ""I'm a huge Stephen King fan and have had the privilege of reading a number of this books, Carrie included. I have also seen the movie, Carrie, and both are stories very well told. I don't think anyone will ever forget the infamous pig's blood scene where Carrie ultimately changes her demeanor and starts wreaking havoc on her high school cohorts. I loved this book because I couldn't put it down, I just had to know what was going to happen. It is now a classic horror book/movie in my opinion along with several other of Stephen King's writings.""Stephen King is the master of horror and for good reason. Carrie is a classic King horror novel, a psychological thriller with a rightfully-notorious ending. A must-read for any fan of horror or thriller fiction, if you're a fan like I am this one will definitely earn a place on the bookshelf - right alongside King's other classics! Like all Stephen King works, there are unusual and controversial themes that some may disapprove of, and King's love of the esoteric is on display here - some people dislike that, and many more love it."""Carrie" is a good horror novel, but NOT the best. It's rather short, and one of King's earliest works. I would certainly recommend King; he is one of the finest horror novelists to ever put pen to paper. But one should think about his other terrifying novels: "IT", "The Stand", "The Shining"...the list goes on. I would recommend "The Stand". It will keep you reading and leave you terrified. The novel follows several characters, and the horrors each must face after humanity is decimated due to a government-engineered superflu. ""If you want to read very good books and need access to both e- books or the original hard cover, then the place to look is Amazon books at the Amazon.com website. They have a great selection of books in the Horror genre, including the most prolific horror writer Stephen King. You can find his classic "Carrie" in either e-book form or hard cover. You will love the prices too! They have a variety of ways to ship to you or you can just download it and be able to read "Carrie" within minutes of visiting amazon.com . ""Carrie of course is a horror book by Stephen King released in 1974. It has been the subject of numerous movies and musical adaptations. It's subject is a teenage high school girl who is bullied by other students. She has a very restrictive religious mother. She discovers she has telekenetic powers and ultimately uses them for revenge on the those who have tormented her. It is one of the best horror books and stories and is so horrific it has been banned many times. For a single answer it is excellent ""However, 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 highlights. There are some books that if you knew what will happen...bam! 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.""I love horror novels, but to be honest, I've never been a fan of Stephen King's writing. I think he writes way too many books, like he just throws them out there every year hoping one of them will catch on rather than really try to polish them and make them great. I especially feel like Carrie has gotten way too much praise and it certainly didn't need two movies. It's full of plot holes and requires huge leaps of imagination. How did Carrie even get her powers? It's never explained. No thank you.""My book club met last week and we put a lot of different genres of books in a hat and drew one out. The genre horror books was drawn. The group searched Amazon for best horror books and a lot of the top picks were by Stephen King. I had read some of his books in the past and thought they were really good. We decided as a group, Carrie was one of his best and surprisingly I hadn't read that one. We decided on it and man, it was intense. Probably the best horror book ever. The group agreed.""This site was able to tell me a variety of reading formats (audiobook, ebook, hard cover, etc) at a variety of prices. It showed a great selection of other books by Stephen King for those who love to be scared. The synopsis grabs the attention without revealing too much. The only part of the site I did not like, was the section called "book awards". I thought that would tell me awards that this particular book received. Instead, it showed a random mixed of genres and books that won awards. ""I am a big fan of horror books and movies, and always have been. Carrie is a classic, and for a good reason. I think the best thing about it is that most of it is not that "out there". The horror doesn't come from some monster...it comes from an abused and mistreated girl. It comes from someone being treated so badly that their mind developed its own weapon to protect and avenge them. It is not only scary, but an important read. I think it's Stephen King's best work!""I think everyone has seen the movie, but not as many have read the book. In my opinion, neither the book nor the movie are any good. I'm not a horror fan, so I'm probably biased. I only read the book because a friend had it and didn't want it anymore. Being an avid reader, I thought I'd give it a try. The time spent reading it wasn't worth it for me. I'd just much rather read a book that has positivity or an inspiring and useful message in it. I wouldn't recommend.""Raw and energetic, but cartoonish characters resulting in unintentional hilarity. Heavy-handed symbolism and themes, but manage to strike some primordial horror nerves. The end is a disappointment compared to the movie: unnecessary distance created, and big pauses in the action during the climax. The book is padded with articles and letters that add nothing to the story--seemed added to make it a novel instead of the short story it probably should have been. ""I love to read horror books. I'm mostly a Steven King fan and I really enjoyed the Carrie movie, so I decided to read the book. Carrie is a really interesting, yet shocking story, about a girl who has a psychic power that can be hard to control and is frequently bullied by the kids at her school. It's definitely one of my favorite horror books and movies. It is a shocking thriller that is a must-read for any horror book and/or Steven King fan. 5/5!""It is always good to read the novel first and watch the movie. That way it very well depicts the imagination that we had when reading the book and a feel that our imagination is coming live in motion picture on the screen. Horror movies are both fun and thrill to watch and particularly in this novel when a girl has special powers and how she uses this special powers to bring in both positive and negative effects. Can't wait to read the full novel.""Carrie is one of the best books ever written, in my opinion. It shows us that any unkindness we may perpetuate onto others may come back and bite us. It shows us that we should respect the vulnerable. It does a very good job of getting you involved, and there were definitely some nail-biting parts! I loved this book. It could have been a little more scary though, if I was looking for straight horror, I probably wouldn't have tried this one.""If you love horror books, check out Carrie, a Steven King book. Even if you haven't seen the movie, you'll thoroughly enjoy the interesting story of a teenage outcast that has psychic powers. Seeing how she copes with the bullying she endures, as well as her overly-religious nut of a mother, and uses her psychic powers to get back at them is incredibly fascinating and scary. I highly recommend Carrie, one of the best horror books I've read.""I am always looking for a good horror books to read around Halloween. It has been a tradition of mine to read a handful of books in October to get myself in the mood for Halloween. Last year, a coworker recommended "Carrie" by Stephen King. I gave it a shot, and I was completely blown away. The story and the writing was so descriptive and detailed it gave me chills for days. It is definitely one of the best horror books I have ever read.""As his first major release Carrie is an intriguing tale in a style that only King seems capable of. His superb skills of character development make you feel very connected to the personas in the story and his unique brand of horror and skirting the thin line between sane and insane really help you get involved in the book. Carrie may feel a bit dated in this day in age but the heart of the story is still as unnerving today as always.""Not only did I read Carrie as a child, I have seen 2 differnt remakes of the movie and I loved them all. Many of my friends did not like the movie, and I never understood because none of us were nerds or gilrs who would be at risk of being "Carrie" But i am an adult, and I still watch the movie during Hallowwen season and whenever it come son television and I have read the book twice- once on paperback, and one on this Kindle version""Stephen King is the master of horror so yes, Carrie is as terrifying as you imagine it to me. I can say with no shame that this book scared the bejesus out of me right from the jump. I wanted to turn the page but at the same I was scared to turn the page. I think the book is one hundred times better than the movie though so if you must check out both, read this book first and then watch the movie. This is one scary book though!""As someone who has actually read this book I have to say I couldn't ask for much more from a response. The solution took me right to the amazon page where I was able to see a preview of the book. Along with the preview, I was provided with over 1000 reviews of the book and over 5 different options of formats to buy the book in. There are also a bunch of other horror books that I could look at from the suggested stroller. ""Fantastic story. I'm a big Stephen King fan, and if you want to read the book that started it all, look no further. This is the story of the quiet girl in the back of the class. She's a little weird so she gets picked on. Some kids decide to play a prank on her. Bad news, it doesn't work out so well. This is classic King, writing realistic, memorable characters in a way that will have you turning the pages until dawn.""when reading the book one can also expect to be taken in by the bullying that the character faces in the daily scheme of things. As a lot of the book focuses on the main characters' "gift", there are also external circumstances that help to fuel her anger towards the other classmates, as it is played out on one fateful night. the above does address this and is helpful to note that it is a problem as well as a gift. ""Calling all Stephen King fans! If you haven't read Carrie yet, then you haven't read the best horror books yet. I know, I know, the movie was pretty great, and the remake was...okay, well the remake wasn't as great, but none of the movies can hold a candle to the book. Way better to read it because you can really see in the minds of the characters and that makes all the difference with his stories! Read it! Right now!""Carrie is one the most well known horror books, but it's not the best. It's a story of how a girl with supernatural powers has been raised by an abusive mother and picked on by her highschool, until her bullying comes to a head and she murders them all. It's more a moral lesson of don't bully anyone than anything else, and it's certainly not that horrifying. Watch either movie if you want a more visceral experience.""OMG! I loved this book! If you've ever been into the supernatural or believe that some people are blessed with special abilities, this is your book. It kind of exemplifies the struggles of high school, the desperation teens feel to fit in, and the extent others will go to just to keep them out. However, Stephen King definitely ups the anti when he had Carrie unleash her powers on her opposition. Man, what a scene! ""Carrie is a true horror fiction classic. It's by Stephen King and tells the story of a high school girl with mental abilities to move things. She uses it to get revenge on all the mean kids at high school. You've probably seen the movie adaptation, but it's worth getting the book because it really fleshes out the story in a way that the movie can't because of time restrictions. It's great read and a great tale.""As one of the premier scary writers of my generation, I always am searching for another Stephen King novel to get me spooked. With Carrie, the destruction and horror she creates does not disappoint. Another fantastic novel that has you thinking, King really hit one out of the park with this one. An American horror classic, this is a highly recommended novel for any of those who are interested in the genre. ""Carrie is definitely my favorite horror novel, Stephen King never lets me down! I've always wanted to have superhuman abilities and this girl named Carrie in the novel is able to move things with just her mind. But it's a gift and a curse. I don't want to spoil it for anyone but this is definitely a must read from stephen king, everyone should read an amazing novel like this at least once in their lifetime.""Carrie, poor, poor, evil Carrie. This is one of my favorite horror books by my favorite horror author. It's just the best horror book. There's no arguing it. I can't say anything about this book without spoiling the whole thing. So, if you haven't read it, DO IT and if you have, you know exactly what I'm talking about. This is one of those books that will live with you for the rest of your life.""This truly is one great read! I have read it several times and it still entertains and chills. The true horror here is how people treat people that they deem different and to what lengths they will go to make their live's miserable. Oppressed by her religious mother and tortured by her classmates, you can see the power growing in Carrie until it all comes to a head. I highly recommend this book.""Carrie is a excellent choice for those having issues finding horror books that balance the supernatural and the everyday. The tension in the story is really remarkable. Just about anyone who had a difficult high school experience can find some of the interpersonal themes of repression and bullying to be relatable. I think this is one of the author's best works, which is quite an accomplishment.""The selection comes as no surprise. Who hasn't seen that classic Carrie movie (or the 2013 less stellar version) with that famous ending scene that appears in top 10 lists? They don't call Steven King the master of horror for nothing. I've always wanted to read the book and this just motivated me now. I get the feeling that the movie will be on par with the book since it got great reviews too.""Carrie is a book written by Stephen King that tells the story of Carrie, a girl that was bullied by her classmates, but that had a hidden gift. Her gift was the ability to move things with the strength of her mind, and she will use this gift in a cruel way when he fill rescue a man that had an accident. Beautiful book from where they made also a beautiful movie: suggested, both of them""I was looking for a good horror book to start reading. I found it!! This book will have you so interested that you will not want to put it down. Best of all, you can get it for your Kindle at a low price. I really enjoyed this book and I am sure you will too if you are a horror/thriller fan. Grab a blanket, get on the couch and start reading as you will not want to put this book down. ""Carrie is not a good solution. It is one horror book. While it is a classic horror story made into a movie and then a remake of a movie it is not really a listing of best horror books. It is one book . A gallery of a listing of best horror books of all time is better. Such as found at https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2016/10/the-21-best-horror-books-of-the-21st-century.html""Regarded by many as one of Stephen King's finest works, Carrie is a suspense filled thriller that will leave you excited and scared. The development of the characters across this book is great as you really feel a great deal of sympathy for the title character as she progresses throughout the pages. You will not want to put this book down until the very last page. Truly great read.""If you are a fan of horror fiction, you simply cannot ignore this classic, Stephen King's first novel about a gifted and isolated teen with fearful powers. I love how King wraps a supernatural tale of horror into a story of regular high school experience. This may not be King's finest novel (I'd give that prize to The Shining, or The Stand), but it's still very much a must-read.""Reading horror books has been a hobby of mine since I was high school. I just love to curl up with a good horror book after work and no one does horror better than Stephen King. After seeing the movie Carrie, I was interested to see if the book was better than the movie, which is usually and was the case in this instance. If you liked the movie definitely read this book. ""I love horror books, I mean I really love them. That is why I was so disappointed when I was looking for a new one to read and a friend recommended the classic "Carrie" by Stephen King. After spending several days reading it, I was extremely underwhelmed. The plot was not appealing and I wasn't scarred or horrified at all. I definitely would not recommend this to anyone. ""Carrie is right up there with a cult classic. Carrie is treated horribly from her entire class, especially at Prom, and they just should not have done that. Stephen King might have made a name for himself on this one book, alone. It is a page turner, and Carrie will not let you down with her mind control and getting revenge to those that should have been a little nicer. ""Carrie is instantly recognizable as one of Stephen King's classic horror novels so it fits the query well. Amazon ratings have the book at 4.5 stars which backs this pick up as being quality. The description here however fails to stress any strengths or gives reasons as to why the book would be considered "best" unless I count the mention of King's name as a strength.""You can't really go wrong with Amazon. I appreciated the option to purchase the book via Kindle or paperback. Having Prime is a plus because it ensures the book will arrive in two days time. I chose the Kindle edition because I couldn't wait two days to start reading Carrie. Having an account with Amazon makes it quite easy to buy it with one click and begin reading!""I was looking to read a great horror book and decided on Carrie by Stephen King. The story felt like a Stephen King novel and I was very happy with my choice. I was constantly in suspense and really liked the simplicity of the story at the beginning and then how it evolved through the book. I highly recommend this story for anyone looking for a good horror novel.""This movie has a scary message and that is be careful who you are mean to and bully. What goes around comes around. This is scary cause people know that they treat people wrong. So they know deep down Carrie is going to get them! Stephen King is an expert at making people scared, No one does it better. After reading this book I just hope to never meet a carrie!""Stephen King is a legend in the horror/thriller genre for a reason. His books are enthralling and terrifying without sacrificing style. He is a fantastic writer and knows how to craft a brilliant story. Carrie a classic for a reason. Everyone will find the school teasing/bullying somewhat relatable, making the story that much more impactful. Highly recommend""An excellent book from a well known author. This may not be what some people call 'the best' but it's got to be on everyone's list. In this specific event, there are multiple mediums to consume this entertainment. Additionally, after you've looked at it, there are recommendations for others, so you can see what other people consider to be decent choices.""There is a reason why so many Stephen King novels are made into films. Carrie is no exception. It features a mother/daughter relationship that is straight out of hell! This book will give you nightmares so don't stay up too late reading it like I did. You don't want to get as spooked as I did. For a good scare, check out one of the best horror books around.""Most Stephen King fans will be pleased to read the author's first published book; I know I was. While I, like everyone else, experienced the Brian De Palma spoiler, I was still happy to read the book and found that it relates to what is considered only a modern day topic "bullying". Even knowing the story I was still engaged because of King's presentation.""This book performed well in helping me solve issues with finding a horror book that I found compelling and interesting. It's a good mixture of interpersonal, high-school related drama and supernatural horror, but it doesn't come off as corny or forced like contemporary efforts and combining these kinds of situations. It's considered a classic for a reason.""This perfectly sated my need for a horror book! I'd heard of Carrie but I'd not read it so I believe that it is indeed considered one of the best horror books. Amazon also gives really affordable deals on it, as well as many different options for what edition of the book I want to buy, and has really fast shipping. This is a great and convenient solution!""Stephen King's first published novel is relevant today as it takes on the subject of bullying. Most people will have a serious spoiler alert to deal with having seen Brian De Palma's film of the same name; however, King fans should still read this book. The author gives us a lot to choose from so it took me awhile to get to this book but I am glad I did.""I occasionally like to read thriller and horror books and was looking for a good classic to read. My cousin recommended the Stephen King thriller "Carrie". I was skeptical at first, but decided to dive in and give the book a shot. I was utterly impressed. I know Stephen King is an amazing author but I thought he really set raised the bar with this one. ""At first I thought I would be buying the old book if they have one like the old movie. The solution took me to a place where I can buy the new book! this is amazing the new version of the book is cool. I am going to buy it for my awesome collection. The solution was better than expected as I was not aware they sold a new version of the same old story. ""This is an absolute great read. I have read it multiple times and it is still fresh and relevant. The true horror here is not Carrie's telekinesis, although that does make for some good horror, but how people treat each other, especially someone who is different. Man is the scariest monster you could ever imagine. Pick this one up. You won't be sorry.""If you need horror books,ask me and I will tell you what you are missing!Carrie is a very fascinating book that tells a story of a girl that was constantly piked by her classmates but she had this amazing gift of moving things with her mind which later turn out to be a weapon.Trust me,you don't want to miss out on this book that really captivated me!""I'm a really big fan of the horror genre. So, I started searching for the best horror books to read. I came across "Carrie" and gave it a shot because I've never read it before. I'm glad I did. This is one of the best horror books I've ever read. I've never found a book that has been able to capture the tone of a setting like this one. I loved it.""I still remember freaking myself out as a kid reading Carrie late at night when I wasn't supposed to be up, flashlight under the covers. The movie is a classic now too, but the book is where it all started, and what made Stephen King famous. You can't be horror fan and not read Stephen King, and you can't read Stephen King without reading Carrie. ""If you are a reader you can find either an e book or the paper version easily at Amazon bookseller. The collection of Horror books is exceptional. One of my favorites is Carrie by Stephen King. You can have the book sent to your Kindle in minutes or you can have it shipped quickly by post. Nothing could be easier than shopping with Amazon books. ""I was pleasantly surprised how comprehensive this site was. I liked the options of all versions available to read this book: audiobook, paperback, leatherbound, kindle versions. There were also options for purchasing new or used versions. I liked the options of other Stephen King books that were given to expand upon my Stephen King reading list.""When it comes to books in the horror genre, determining what is best and what is not all boils down to the reader. I have not read Carrie, so I cannot state where it falls as a solution to the topic. However, considering that it is one of Stephen King's first books, it is probably a fairly good "solution" to the topic. I'd give it a 'go ahead'.""First, let me say that I am not a whore a fan. I read the book many years ago and I've seen the movie a few times. For what it is, it was a pretty good book. Stephen King is one of the best at what he does and has a writing style that helps keep the reader engaged. So if you're a fan of horror this would be a good book for you to get and read.""The place to look for horror books is of course Amazon in the book department. There you can find all of the books by horror legend Stephen King. I wanted to read Carrie after seeing the movie and I found it within minutes and downloaded it to my kindle for an incredible price. I had the book within five minutes and payment was just as easy. ""I was obsessed with horror movies as a kid, and Carrie was one of my favorites. I borrowed the book from my local library and read it in a few days. Carrie introduced me to Stephen King, and for that I'm forever grateful. It's easy to empathize with the eponymous character, despite her being perceived as a weirdo and loser by her classmates. ""Carrie is the first book ever written by the legendary author Stephen King. It is terrifyingly intense and draws you in like your there. The whole book had me on the edge of my seat and nothing was slow or boring about it at all. My only complaint is the setting as I don't find school to be very exciting in general but this book makes it so.""This is a classic horror book from Stephen King. I have watched the movie, but had not read the book. I thought that the book was much better than the movie, as is the usual case. It had elements of horror, but also was a tale about the girl who just couldn't stand the abuse she has suffered her entire life. It was a page turner for me.""Carrie is one of Stephen King's most famous horror books of all time for good reason. Carrie is full of suspense and surprises with each turn of the page. I couldn't put it down, I finished it all in one rainy afternoon and that novel has stayed with me for a long time after. I recommend it for anyone looking for a gory well-told story.""Far better than the movie as cliched and that sounds, Carrie is better paced and fills in interesting details well enough to make it a worthwhile read. It's also worth reading, if for nothing else, just how impressive Steven King was back when he was first starting before he got lazy and just grinded books out like there's no tomorrow. ""I'm a big fan of horror, but I can't handle horror movies. Thus, I tend to gravitate towards books instead, so that I can picture the scenes without becoming too terrified. I checked out Stephen King's Carrie, since it's an absolute classic. It's a fantastic horror novel with some very relate-able aspects. I highly recommend this book!""A great book from the brilliant mind of Stephen King. More than just a great horror read, this is a social commentary on how we treat other's who are different. The book is just as relevant today as when it first published. That aside, the book still gives me the creeps to this day. Just a great read all around. I highly recommend it.""Carrie is a really good horror book. It takes you through the sad life of a young girl that just wants to fit in with others but is constantly being rejected. I was on the edge of my seat emotionally. One moment I was sad and the next minute I was scared of the power this young girl exhibited. I thought it was definitely a good read.""The other day I was looking at a list of the best horror books and I came across Carrie. I had never read it or seen any of the movies so I decided to check it out. It had been a while since I had read a good horror book and Carrie was exactly what I was looking for. It was dark and disturbing like many of Stephen King's other works.""Halloween is upon us and I wanted to read the best horror books to ramp up my Halloween spirit. I found out that Carrie is rated the best book for horror fans. I picked it up because I am a HUGE fan of the movie and thought the book would be good. I was blown away at how much detail the book has over the movie! I enjoyed reading it!""I have read this book several times and I always pick up something new. The fact that it creeps me out every time I read it is probably the reason. This is definitely a page turner that you will not want to put down. You can see aspects of yourself (good and bad) in each of the characters. Maybe that is why it creeps me out so much.""Carrie. What else can you possibly say about this book? It's one of King's best. If you're looking for the absolutely best horror books out there, you can't really go wrong with this title (or really any of his books). This is a good one to start your collection with, too, and it's, of course, a million times better than the movie!""Everyone knows the story of Stephen King's Carrie, though most know it through the iconic performance by Sissy Spacek in the Brian de Palma movie. To really experience the story, however, you have to read the book. King's debut novel, available here on Kindle and in every other format imaginable, is a must-read for fans of horror. ""This book is thrilling and exciting and many of us can identify with Carrie White who is bullied and often gets a raw deal. The book gets more and more intriguing and thrilling as the story unfolds. The ups and downs of Carrie's life makes it interesting to see how she deals with every episode and faces her challenges and bullies. ""Many people have probably seen one of the Carrie movies, but some may not realize that it is based on a book by Stephen King. While it may be hard to believe, the book is even better than the movie. It does a great job capturing the feelings of the characters and makes you feel like you're in the moment as most of King's books do.""This is your typical Stephen King novel. The story telling is world class, and the actual story itself is very scary! It is described in a way that you can picture the story coming to life right in front of you. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a 'horror' type of book. You will not be disappointed by this book!""A classic Stephen King novel (actually his first), Carrie offers thrills throughout the book and nothing to really detract from it. Keep in mind this obviously was written before the movie was made so some details are different about it as opposed to the film of the same name. If you like horror, this is definitely a must-read!""This movie seem's very promising. As it looks to be an good horror story, and not one of those fake one's where the victim seems to always fall on something and have the worse happen to them. This story actually has a backstory as to why Carrie has used her gift as a way of desturaction on her classmates. It's Absolutely Prefect!""Carrie is one of Stephen Kings best know horror stories. It is a classic about a girl who has the power of telekinesis. After being constantly bullied she gets even. If you like horror stories there is no way you can go wrong by picking up anything by Stephen King. Carrie would definitely fit the topic of best horror books.""Carrie is one of my all time favorite books. I Have to pull this off the book shelf every few years to read again. The movie they made based on this book is also very good. This is definitely a book to recommend for those teens who think they love "horror stories" but not quite ready to watch some of the Halloween movies, etc...""I know, I know, Stephen King is a master of Horror, but Carrie never really grabbed me. I guess it's because I had a rough childhood myself, but it felt like the novel was cheapening the actual experiences of bullied and abused kids. I much prefer the more thoughtful and cerebral horror King produced under his Bachman pseudonym.""One of the best horror/thriller novels of all time! I remember reading the novel when i was a tad to young to be doing so. It ruined my sleep schedule, and my parents, for weeks after finishing it. Most people remember the movies that have been made around it, but the novel is the only medium that really does this story justice.""I found out all about Carrie from the 1970's horror flick by the same name. This is the Stephen King written version of the movie with the same name and premise. This book is just plain old scary and spooky. If you like being spooked out and frightened by reading a good horror book, then this is going to be the thing for you.""If you're a Stephen King fan, and I am, and if you're a fan of horror (as I am), you simply have to read this book and have it in your collection. Forget the iconic Brian de Palma movie for a second, and read King's first published novel with fresh eyes. It's a terrifying tale, and holds up very well after all these years. ""I love all of Stephen King's work, including Carrie, but I don't know of I would classify it as one of the best horror books. While I do think it's a great read I didn't find it to be scary. If I sit down to read a horror book I want to be left feeling like I can't sleep with my lights off, and with Carrie I felt no fear.""Carrie is having a sort of a renaissance. It's being remade into a movie again. I feel like there's a lot more story to tell so I hope they don't limit themselves strictly to the book or the original movie. I highly recommend this wonderful book if you've never read it even if you've seen the movie. It's utterly original.""Carrie is one of Stephen King's classic horror novels. It was one of the first books of his that I've read and I find myself going back to read it once every several years. If you haven't read this one and you enjoy any of Stephen Kings books or just horror in general do yourself a favor and pick this one up immediately!""I love horror books and movies. The books are usually better than the movies. Carrie is no exception. I love the movie bit the book is way better in my opinion. The tale is a real classic but I do not know all that many people who have read or even know it is a book also. I live it and think people should check it out.""Carrie is one of the most famous books written by Steven King. It talks about Carrie, a woman with a difficult social life that hides a big secret: she's able to move things with the power of her mind! A beautiful thriller, that every lover of the genre should read BEFORE watching the movie that has been made after it!""In my humble opinion, Carrie is a classic. A great many horror stories have been written since it was first published but for me it stands out from all the rest. I still remember the first time that I read it. I could barely put the book down. Whenever I hear someone hasn’t read it, I always insist they give it a try.""I have always been a big fan of Stephen King and horror books, although I can not say that I feel Carrie is one of his best never mind be one of the best horror books. There are so many great horror books out there and I can't even say that Carrie is really a horror story. I think it is more suspenseful and revenge.""I am a fan of memoirs and non fiction books, so I've never loved Stephen King books. My mother insisted I read this after she passed it along to me, so I decided to give it a chance. Although I found it to be a bit on the ridiculous side, it was of course well written and would be a must-read for all fiction lovers. ""Carrie did a rather good job helping me solve problems with finding a really good horror book that was to my taste. It's a classic tale that mixes everyday high school drama with supernatural elements. I'd have to say it's among the author's top works, which is no easy feat, considering his long and storied career.""One of, if not the best works from King and certainly one of the most memorable. Always preferred the book to the movie. A horror book that puts the reader in a situation that they can identify with to a certain degree. Makes some of the terror more real. Can't go wrong reading this even after all these years.""Carrie is what I think of when someone is talking about horror whether it be movies or books. This book is written by the King of Horror and is truly the best horror book. I feel like everyone can relate to Carrie being picked on by classmates and so there are human aspects to the book mixed in with true horor. ""Carrie, by Stephen King, is one of the classic horror books that everyone should read at some point in their life. Most horror fans will have already read it but it's a must read for everyone else. Beware: Carrie will make you a Stephen King fan and you'll find yourself reading through his entire collection. ""I did a quick amazon search for horror books and sort by highest customer review. While I do agree Carrie is one of the best, it may or may not be the best per Amazon ratings. Choosing the one with a huge sample size, 1521 (higher than 1000 is decent), The Walking Dead Compendium Vol. 2 is the clear winner.""With Stephen King's It being turned into a movie, I wanted to check out some more horror books. I went to the classics by the same author to get a feel for his style. Carrie was the first one I checked out. It's definitely a classic and it's aged well, too! I recommend it to anyone who likes horror novels.""If you're into horror, try horror books and start with Stephen King's Carrie. Horror movies will scare you, and you'll lose a night or two of sleep. Horror books will haunt you for decades. King's Carrie was frightening twenty years ago when I first read it. Still haunts me today. King is the master. ""Carrie was an excellent solution for me when I wanted to read a top notch horror novel. Stephen King is my favorite author of horror novels and Carrie is undeniably one of his best. King created a character in Carrie who is both sympathetic and terrifying, which adds so much depth to this horror novel.""I usually have trouble staying up after midnight but after I finished reading this book, I couldn't fall asleep! It is definitely one of the best horror books I've read. Stephen King is such a great writer that this book outshines the film. Give this a read if you're looking for a scary story to read!""I love all things written by Stephen King, but there is no better book to read than Carrie. It is a story that intertwines the struggles of adolescence with the horror that only King can produce. I would definitely recommend this book if you like to read stories with a dark and twisted edge to them.""Carrie is more a psychological thriller than your usual horror bloody slasher movie. It plays with your mind and your fears in a realistic setting which only helps to heighten the scare factor. If looking for something slightly different from the usual in this genre then Carrie is a solid choice.""Carrie is a classic horror book by Stephen King. Before I began reading King's longer books, I started out with a few slimmer volumes, such as Carrie. The creepiness builds in the book and I felt immersed in the story. The end doesn't disappoint and left me a bit wary of classmates for a while. ""I love Carrie and the story of her ascension into terror after being bullied is great. The story is very original to me and is one of Stephen Kings best pieces of work in my opinion that it is focused on a character and not some off the wall item (that can get boring) like some of his other books.""Stephen King is one of the best storytellers and my favorite in the horror genre. Carrie is a very interesting book and definitely a very interesting read. It was not my favorite of King's books, but definitely worth a look if you like his other books or are just in the mood for a good scary book.""Ah Carrie, the best horror book to teach kids to not pick on the weird kid. After being bullied at school and oppressed at home the poor girl snaps and the power that explodes out is well worth the time spent reading. Such a good book, if you like horror and you haven't read Carrie, you should.""A instant classic, "Carrie" introduced a unique new voice in the fiction genre, Stephen King. The story of misconceived high school girl Carrie White, her amazing telekinetic powers, and her obsessive rampage of revenge, remains one of the most barrier-breaking and shocking novels of all time.""Stephen King has certainly earned his place as a master of the horror genre. I found this book hard to read at times and yet I couldn't put it down. I have tons of experience being terrified by movies, less so by books. Guess that means I have more Stephen King to buy! Definitely worth a read!""Carrie is one of Stephen King's more well known books. For people who have read the book, just hearing the name Carrie can send a shiver down your spine. Stephen King is the master of horror and this is one of my favorite books from him. Anyone interested in horror books needs to read Carrie. ""The horror-master's saga of teenage angst, betrayal, and another everyday girl who just happens to have super powers and a low popularity rating in school. A good read, and the evil doers get their just reward. Well, maybe a little overkill on the reward, but hey, it makes for a good story. ""When the urge to have a good old school scare comes, very few books fill it for me better than one of Steven King's early novel Carrie. It will keep you on the edge of terror until the very last page and is a book I would highly recommend to friends and family if they enjoy the horror genre. ""While Stephen King does some decent horror books, I have to disagree with this one. Carrie was okay, and I found the book better than the movie, I've never forgiven him for the ending to the dark tower series. Dean Koontz book "Corner of his Eye," for instance, was /much/ better than Carrie.""Carrie could be considered one of the pillars that has supported the writing of horror books for over 25 years now. There's a reason why people are still reading it today. This book is scary. Stephen King is the reigning under-lord of horror and this is one of the best examples of his work. ""They said horror book, but I thought that this was a captivating story. A young girl, heartbroken by rowdy teenagers seeks out to right the wrongs of the world. I fell in love with the tragic character Carrie. Not much of a horror story (hence the rating), but a good story nonetheless. ""I love a good horror book but have had no luck in the past year finding any good ones. A friend recommended Carrie by Stephen King and let me tell you, it is a scary! I read this book in two sittings, it was that good. I am not usually a Stephen King fan but he was on point with this one. ""Carrie is a great book about an awkward high schooler, the type of person we all seem to have known in school. She gets pushed around and finally pulls an ace from her sleeve as she is not actually at all like others. She has a gift and unleashes it in the form of horror and destruction. ""Carrie was a wonderful horror book full of murder suspense and action. It really is the epitome of teen angst combined with telekinesis. I loved the book and the movie but I would not really consider either of them the best. The book is probably in the top one hundred but not the best. ""It's pretty safe to say Carrie is one of the best horror books ever written. It is certainly one of the most famous given its by Stephen King and has a movie based on it. But this is one of the best books he's ever written, so if horror is your thing, definitely check out this classic.""If you like horror books, then I'm sure you know about one of the best greatest horror authors of all time, Stephen King. Carrie, by King, is a fantastic thriller with emotional twists and turns. Even if you have seen one of the movie remakes, the book is still more than worth a read.""Everyone has read a Stephen King book sometime in their life. Carrie was his 4th novel and first to be put on the silver screen. It's a great mix of teen angst, religious zealotry and good, old fashioned humor. If you want to see what put Stephen King on the map, check out "Carrie".""If horror is your genre then you can't go wrong with classic writers of this type of fiction and Stephen King is probably one of the best known authors in this tradition. Add to that, the story of "Carrie", immortalized in Film, and you truly have one of the best selections around.""If you're a horror fan and this novel isn't in your collection, what are you waiting for? This is a total classic. I won't ruin it for you, but the things this poor girl is forced to endure at the hands of all the cruel people in her life is terrible! She gets her revenge, though. ""This is classic! It's an early Stephen King book and just as scary today as when it was released years ago. I am not sure if this is my favorite Stephen King book, but just as any of his books, there is so much more details and character development in books than movie. I like it.""I love reading horror books. I am always looking for best horror books. Carrie is a classic. I saw the movie but never read the book. The book was pretty good and told a familiar story that ends awfully. I would give this a read whether you saw the movie or not. It is a classic. ""I love horror books and one of the best IMO is Carrie. It is a classic. Most everybody has seen the movies. I always tell people to read the book as well. It is one of the best horror books I have read in a while. If you like the movie you will like the book. I highly recommend. ""You can't have a list of top horror books without including multiple Stephen King titles. Carrie is a classic. Almost anyone can relate to feeling like an outcast and wanting to exact revenge on those who tormented us. Part of the appeal of Carrie is that we can all relate to her.""Carrie is a good idea for a horror book. After all, it is King's first. I haven't read it, but it does have very many good reviews. Goodreads has it at 3.9/5 with nearly 380,000 reviews. It's 4.5/5 on Amazon with a little over one thousand reviews. This is indeed a good solution.""Carrie is a book that has been around for a while but I had not read it until recently. This is one creepy book and I found it possibly more creepy today than I would have even ten years ago because of all the bullying we hear about amung teens. This story had me up all night. ""Carrie by Stephen King is a great horror book and one of the best. It's gritty, dark, and raw in all of the right ways. It leaves you walking away from the book knowing that the character had exacted her revenge in a scary and sadistic way, making it great for the horror genre.""I was in the proper mood for a horror novel so i checked out carrie. Too my surprise it was excellent. I could not stop reading through and through it. Page after page I was hanging on the edge of my seat. It is a tragic horror story yet so incredibly wonderful and horrifying.""While the site itself is a listing for a horror book, it isn't a source for the 'best' horror books because we are only presented with one of the better, widely known examples. That said, of all books to link to, one of Stephen King's best is definitely a good place to start.""My friend wanted to buddy read a horror book with me. I am not familiar with horror books so I went to Stephen King's Carrie because I knew it was a popular choice. This book was chilling. The characterization and atmospherics made for a truly compelling and frightening read. ""So I wanted a scary book. Not just any scary book, but the scariest book that ever did grace a page. What I got was a snooze fest. This novel (if you can call it that, more of a novella really) just isn't scary. If you're looking for a fright, just keep on moving right along.""If you're looking for a horror novel, you can't beat Stephen King. Carrie, one of his earliest novels became an instant horror classic and a couple of movies as well. A teen's special powers take a dark turn when her friend and her mother show their true sides. A great read.""Carrie is definitely one of Stephen King's best works and one of the greatest horror stories ever written. I won't say much because I don't want to ruin the book but if you're looking to take a dive into the horror book genre, Stephen King's Carrie is a great place to start.""I love Stephen King, but Carrie just didn't do it for me. It was so heavy-handed and just didn't have the depth of later King novels. Admittedly, I do prefer the work he did under his Bachmann pseudonym, but still, as one of his earlier novels, Carrie just does not hold up.""This is one of my all time favorite books. I happened to read this when I was still in middle school and was fascinated by the story of Carrie and the events of it were pretty bold. This is one of my favorite classics and it still is one of the best ones for teens to read. ""The story is a tragedy and very creepy in my opinion. It's very unique and it really makes you think about how cruel people can be during their teenage years. It does have a big impact and unfortunate things can happen. It definitely can be considered a great horror book. ""Carrie White is one of Stephen King's well known and terrifying characters. At first she may seem like your average high school student, but when she is pushed to the edge we see what she is really capable of. Carrie is a wild ride that shows that bullying doesn't pay off.""Please provide a list of the best horror books. When I ask a general question, I don't want one specific book as an answer. Taking me to Amazon.com and offering me one book feels like a scam. I'm beginning to think you have a deal with Amazon.com to sell specific titles...""An absolute classic of literature. If you're looking for a horror novel that doesn't pretend to hide it's intentions, or lead you astray, look no further! Carrie haunted my dreams when I first read it in high school, and it did the same reading it again not too long ago! ""I read Carrie right on the cusp of womanhood. It really freaked me out. I have to admit, it made me enter high school with a modicum of trepidation. Thank heavens none of my classmates showed any predisposition for telekinesis. One of my favorite horror novels, for sure.""I was looking for the physical copy of this book, and it led me to the Kindle version. I don't know how many people would be interested in the Kindle version instead of a physical copy of the book. I guess I'll have to do some more searching to find what I'm looking for.""I wanted to see the movie Carrie in theaters, but forgot about it and it never happened. While searching for horror books, I remembered this movie, and decided it would be a good read before watching. It was very well written and kept me flipping pages until it was over.""Carrie is a classic and one of Stephen King's best horror books. This is one of those ones that become part of your life as the story is engrossing and the writing stellar. Overall, it's an exceptional story and one of the most memorable horror books I have ever read!""An instant classic among horror books, and one that holds up well nearly 10 years later. I was amazed at the shocks and turns in this gripping Stephen King masterpiece. I had to fight back tears at the end though, but I don't want to give away any spoilers. 5 stars!""I am not a horror movie or even book kind of person. I believe that Stephen King has a weird sense of humor and mind. I tend to stray away from things as such as this and don't allow them in my home either. There is nothing good that comes from things such as this.""Carrie is a book that not only scares you but you can relate to Carrie. The story line is not too complicated but has enough twists and turns that make you wonder what is next. I was immersed in the book and felt really bad for Carrie. Carrie is a definite must read.""Carrie is a classic horror book, written by the king of scream Stephen King. It is a unique and unforgettable story, made into a few movies as well in time it has been written. Stephen King does his best work in Carrie, making a truly unique and defined horror story.""King's a master in his genre, and this shorter, earlier work of his is no exception. It's a great read for somebody just starting out with his books, but it is very female-centric and might feature content that some readers find unsettling, even for a horror book. ""Carrie is one of the scariest horror books that I've ever read--there's a reason it's a classic. I love the horror genre because it explores interesting themes in gruesome, thrilling ways--Carrie most of all made think really deeply about how we treat other people.""Carrie appears to be a popular horror book and the Amazon link offers a good description and user reviews. Stephen King is a well-known horror author, so I think his books fit well in any search return. I would definitely be interested in reading this horror book. ""Stephan Kings tale of a young girl who just doesn't fit in. The horror mastermind spins a web of sure terror. Carrie a young school girl has a secret that other kids don't know about and once unleashed her school will never be the same. The story is a must read.""Carrie is one of the earliest Stephen King around and it's probably the one that launched his career. It's been turned into a movie twice and it tackles everything from teen angst to religious zealotry. It's definitely an oldie but goodie in terms of horror novels.""In my opinion, Carrie is a good horror book. It is not one of the best. I consider it to be a nostalgic classic that anyone over thirty-five will identify as part of Gen-X's pop culture history. I find it a bit too sappy to contend with seriously horrific novels. ""Carrie is a pretty mediocre horror book for me. It's Stephen King, so you can't neccessarily call it bad, but when you hit a certain level of greatness, more is expected it out of you. I'm not sure this one lived completely up to the standards he set for himself.""Carrie was one of the best horror books I've ever read. There has never been a book to keep me invested into the story like this book. The storyline was incredible and the main character was very likable. I recommend to everybody that's a fan of the horror genre.""If you are a Stephen King fan you should probably read this book. Sure, you have probably seen the Brian De Palma movie but reading the debut book by one of the world's most prolific authors has a sense of history. I found the book to be a rewarding page turner.""With over 300 pages of madness this horror book, "Carrie" will keep you up all night. Don't read this at bedtime for the kiddies, or else they won't be able to go to sleep out of fear from the boogeywoman, the psychotic teenage killer infamously known as Carrie!""I have never been into horror anything. I got pranked by my brother on halloween and he bought me this book. Since it was a present, I decided to give it a try and I couldn't even finish a chapter. I t was just too much for me. I guess I'll never be into horror""Stephen King is the best modern horror author, and Carrie is probably his best stand alone novel. King's iconic character of the girl pushed to the edge is timeless and has inspired other storytellers for decades. Carrie is probably King's most important novel.""I love the horror genre so I started looking for the best horror books. I came across this book called, "Carrie". This is one of the best books I've read in the horror genre. It really captured the tone that was needed to make this book very scary. I loved it.""Horror is my favorite genre. Carrie by Stephen King is often celebrated but I found this to be quite a boring read. Horror is supposed to be thrilling and get your blood racing but all this book did was make me fall asleep in my easy chair. Hard pass from me. ""I've never been a Stephen King fan and it seems like popular culture is obsessed with him. I honestly think Carrie was a terrible book, but the movie that was made out of it was absolutely awesome. I would definitely recommend the movie over any of his books.""This book is a perfect example of one of the best horror books out there. The webpage on Amazon has a great description and pictures. I like the description on this page and think it would be a great starter book for someone looking to get into horror books. ""I've never read this book. I'm honestly not a huge Stephen King fan. Most of his books are way to gory for me. I've never been a big horror fan because I get nightmares. Anyone that I've known that's read this book as liked it tho. It's just not for me.""Stephen King is a very popular horror writer, and Carrie has high ratings so it makes sense to see this book in my results. I am looking for some great horror novels to read, and this one definitely fits the bill. I am excited to acquire a copy and read it.""Stephen King is one of the most iconic horror novelists of all time, so it follows that Carrie is one of the most terrifying books I've ever read. He's got a way of drawing the reader in and capturing them in a way which is hard to do in the written medium.""I am always on the lookout for the best horror books. Last week I decided to read Carrie as I had been planning to for a while. I wish I had read it sooner. The book was so creepy and suspenseful. It was one of best horror novels I had read in a long time.""While I'd argue it's not one of the King's most talented novels, it's still King and therefore worth a read. All of the characters in King's novel have clear motivations and the finale is so heart wrenching you'll be thinking about it for days afterwards.""The solution description does a great job of a description and leaves a cliffhanger at the end - an enticement for the reader to want more. The solution itself leads the user to a landing page where the user can purchase the book in a variety of formats.""Carrie is one of the best known horror books that was also turned into a movie. The book is consistently rated as very high and everyone with an interest for horror should read it. I would recommend not reading it alone because it can become very scary.""It begins! I'm a big King fan, and this is a great introduction. It's his first book if you want to read in order. It's good, different from the movies, Carrie is fat in the book, and it's told through newspaper articles and interviews. Good, fast read.""I was trying to find a good horror book and a friend told me about the novel Carrie. I had heard of it before so I decided to rent it from the library and then give it a read. I thought that there were some scary parts but overall it was not that scary.""Are you looking for a classic horror book? Carrie is the right book for you. It's not overly terrifying and you wont have nightmares, but Stephen King definitely delivers with his book. IT's kind of what I would envision if I too was treated as Carrie.""Carrie is a good read, and I'm not even a fan of horror. Stephen King does a great job with the pacing by including fictional news and scholarly articles, making it hard to put down. I've seen a film adaptation of the book, and this was a lot better.""This particular fiction book, (and the accompanying horror movie of the same title) represents an all time horror classic, and a great work. I would easily and heartily recommend this book as a top of line selection within the horror fiction genre.""This particular fiction book, ﴾and the accompanying horror film of the same title﴿ represents an all time horror classic, and a great work. I would easily and heartily recommend this book as a top of line selection within the horror fiction genre. ""This is one of my favorite books. While Stephen King is already a legendary horror book author and has a number of well-received works, Carrie is a standout as the story is so compelling. I was absorbed from beginning to end and will read it again!""This particular fiction book, ﴾and the accompanying horror movie of the same title﴿ represents an all time horror classic, and a great work. I would easily and heartily recommend this book as a top of line selection within the horror fiction genre.""This is a classic. Stephen King's Carrie is one of the best horror books I've read. If you like to be scared out of your wits I recommend this book. There is a reason it has been made into a movie multiple times, it's a classic that never gets old.""I have a huge love for horror books so I know good ones when it comes to that. I would recommend you check out Carrie. It is a movie which you've probably already seen but the book is a must read. Books give you so much more that movies can't show. ""I wanted the best horror book out there. Carrie by Stephen King was something I had heard about and wanted to read.
