    I watched movie 15-16 years ago for first time and fell in love, so I had to own and read book. I liked it just as much as film. I relate to Carrie White because a lot of us have been bullied. The face that SK based her off 2 real people he knew makes it even more heartbreaking and tragic. An all time favorite novel, and too, a treasure of mine.

    My first SK book which I could also relate to. It got his fright train on track. And to think the manuscript was rescued from the trash bin.

    I know! I am forever grateful to Tabitha for rescuing it!! It is interesting the differences between prom scene from book and movie. Book it was well executed, but I like how she stood on stage in films. I'm glad you relate to Carrie as well.
