    "This is an ok book, because I have read better. I didn't really like the 1850s setting and felt it hindered the story, a story set in the far furture I think would peak my interest really well."

    "As with most of Stephen King's novels that have be redone on the silver screen, the book is better. He unveils the strange, sad, and terrifying mind of Carrie and it doesn't disappoint. The ending is actually more sensational in the book than what you get in the movie. Awesome, awesome book."
