The first book I ever read of Kings, and it got me hooked.
Carrie is the underdog, a girl terrorized by an insanely religious mother, victimized and persecuted by her peers, and alienated from the world around her. Many of us daydream about the revenge we will exact from those kids who made fun of us all those years ago, and Carrie shows us that revenge is not all it is cracked up to be. Carrie's "triumph" costs many innocent people their lives.
An Absolute masterpiece
