Mini-Review: Carrie by Stephen King

Carrie Carrie by Stephen King


What Stephen King's first published novel lacks in literary merit, it makes up for in charm and originality. Carrie is not a long novel, and it's not a particularly moving or emotional novel (though, the emotion of the menstruation metaphor may be lost on my male sensibilities). But it is an interesting novel, one that clearly shows the potential that King cashes in with his long, illustrious career.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
