This book is to say the least.. terrifying! How freakier can a book get? Stephen King never fails to write a mind blowing scary story. I would recommend this book to anyone who craves to be thrilled while reading. This is defiantly a classic Stephen King book and nothing compares!

Miki If you thought this book gave you chills, you should read Pet Cemetery...
Miles When I first read the book, many years ago, I found it scary, but not so scary as It or Misery. I've just read it again and the book deeply impressed me, but not for being spooky. It's full of sorrow, full of compassion. The horror is in Carrie's life and in the world around her: it's in her integral loneliness, in the way she is abused by almost everybody. As far as I can see, the supernatural horror is in this and a reflection of this. "Now i wish I could write you a melody so plain That could hold you dear lady from going insane That could ease you and cool you and cease the pain..."
Nathaniel Winston I didn't think it was scary.

It self spoils with its news articles.

I'd just reccomend the first movie.
Jeremy I finally read this book and loved it. I kept wanting to read more. King really knows how to paint the picture but it was never scary to me.
Rumsha I have only read some thirty pages and this book is really annoying. I am just reading to know why people are praising it soo much.
Tim The answer to "How freakier can a book get?" can be found in Misery, also by Stephen King.
Florence The book is a lot better than the film.The amazing book not much horror aspects but very gory and (as with me ) if over the top religious things scare you.The idea itself is very scary though!
Henry If you think this is scary read Pet Sematary.
Elyse Not scary at all in my opinion. Try reading his other books. His short stories are scarier/freakier than Carrie.
Jason I saw the movie it was good so I think carrie the book is way better p.s I didn't read it yet
Raven If you liked this book, you should read Cujo!!!!
Caroline Yes, a scary book for sure- movie too!
I need to see that you actually read this, because I did not see you read it in class.....
