Carrie has the gift of telekinesis, with which one day, during school ball, decides to take reveng persecutor.
My opinion: This is the first novel king published by a serious publisher. I thought that such a young author can't write so good book(early career). I was wrong. The book is written in an interesting and with idea. It is short, that some might think that it is not enough developed, but nothing of her was missing. It may be the best in my opinion of king's books not necessary (of course, one of those that I read), but certainly very good and commendable.

My opinion: On the basis of this book was created by the film. The film is pretty good. I confess that when I read this book, the story was partly known to me, because I was watching its adaptation. Maybe spoiled is the impression I was under after this book, however, despite this, I read it with interest, uncertainty, emotion. This novel evokes emotions and keeps in suspense.
