Ok gang I looked at most of the books of Carrie and would it be considered a novella? The bookis all looked very short and I don't know which one to get that would have the complete story in it. Does it matter? What year of publication should I get?
Thanks

...Books of Carrie????...there is only one, and it is a complete novel...page count is about 253 depending on format...a novella is somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 to 100 pages....

I read this way back when, when it first came out. Now that I am oh so much older, I ordered the special slip-case edition from Cemetery Dance books. (If you have a few extra bucks maybe you could look into it?)

Even when I am out looking for old Stephen King books, I have never seen a copy of this one for sale. It was his first popular book and if it hadn't been successful for him I guess we would not all be here today, enjoying this message board.
