Carrie is written not in traditional form, it is written in the way of police documents, which is what caught my eye (well, besides the fact it was by my all time favorite author: Stephen King). If you haven't seen the movie, then I suggest you first read the book, though the movie was well written as well, it left out most of the book, imagination, and originality based on its writing. Carrie is the type of girl that I would be if I had her powers, I'm made fun of, bullied, and harrased. He took the every day living of a girl tormented at both home and school, and twisted it into something I couldn't even have thought of to happen. Fire, electricity, and stones all come together to give her classmates and mother what they deserved from the begining. A religious freak mother would lock her in the closet for hours at a time; and in gym class when Carrie first had her period, the girls in the showers threw tampoons at her yelling "Plug it up!". Can anyone imagine that kind of horror? Then she goes home to be yelled at by her mother, what a life!!!
