Carrie, Stephen King


The story begins with the incident happens in the locker room of a high school when blood is running down Carrie's leg. She experiences her first period but she has no idea what it is although she is sixteen at that time. Most of her schoolmates humiliating her by throwing tampons and sanitary napkins on her. Fortunately, Miss Desjardin arrives to the locker room just in time to save her from the further torment.

Carrie possesses telekinetic power which she knew she should not use and none of her schoolmates aware of the power. Although Carrie keeps the humiliation to herself but Miss Desjardin decides to punish those who involved in humiliating Carrie and this causes anger to certain students especially Chris Hargensen. Chris and her boyfriend comes up a plan to take revenge on the Prom Night. However, they have no idea that the revenge will cause a disaster to Chamberlain which kills hundreds of people in one night.

This is the first novel that I've read which is written by Stephen King. Supernatural seems was a popular theme during 70s or 80s and I really like the “classic” feel. This novel was interesting to read and not difficult to understand. I really couldn't put down the book when I was reading it. I can't wait to compile the list of his novels according to the published year and start reading it.
