    Wink Timeless Carrie issues

    Just re read Carrie, facinated by how yet again SKs timeless magic applies .Carrie first captivated me because I related to being bullied at school,I also had a religious fanatic for a grandfather who lived with us from my age 10 to 15 .He would quote the scriptures at me much of the time in a very victorian way.Thankfully I didn't nail him to the wall with kitchen knive though I was often tempted,my love for him got in the way.

    Carrie was my 1st SK book. I was in the 7th grade! From then I read all I could get my hands on, and she is definitly a character I revisit at least once a year

    I too love Carrie cause I can also relate to her.

    When I first read it as a teenager I could totally identify with Carrie. I was picked on through out my childhood, many many times. (Although thankfully not to the extent Carrie was) I never had the best clothes, had a different home life, and I wanted to fit in desperatly. My grandma is pretty into her religion, but Margaret makes her look like a heathen...lol. I so wished to be friends with Carrie or to have her powers and the two of us could go around the world smitting bullies. LOL!

    Now when I read it, I still identify with Carrie, and want to help her so much. BUT I can also feel a LITTLE bit of compassion for Margaret. The woman is off her rocker, don't get me wrong, she has MAJOR issues, but I truely feel that she wants the best for Carrie, that she's trying to protect her in her own strange way. Maybe I'm off on that, but as a mom of a girl who is overweight and has Autism I just want to sheild her from everything, so I'm wondering if that's what Margaret was trying to do.

    I do think this is something every Freshman, or Middle Schooler should read, as a warning against bullying.

    I also identified with Carrie when I was a teenager. I was picked on and bullied when I was in junior high and high school.
    This book also influenced me by making me not want to shower in public school. When I read about then saw the infamous shower scene, I decided I would quit school if they made us take showers in gym class! (Thankfully, my school did not do this.)

    i think the guy probably has nuclear weapons back there if you dig far enough. if he doesn't have it, it isn't worth buying, that's what he says.
