Waterstones Says

Now available in a stunning 50th anniversary hardback edition with an introduction by Margaret Atwood, King's seminal horror classic about the eponymous telekinetic teen has lost none of its power to enthral.

A beautiful hardback classic edition of King's first published novel, Carrie, produced for the fiftieth Anniversary, with a new introduction by Margaret Atwood.

Carrie White is no ordinary girl.

Carrie White has the gift of telekinesis.

To be invited to Prom Night by Tommy Ross is a dream come true for Carrie - the first step towards social acceptance by her high school colleagues.

But events will take a decidedly macabre turn on that horrifying and endless night as she is forced to exercise her terrible gift on the town that mocks and loathes her . . .

“Where It All Started.”

For any Stephen King fan, Carrie is a fabulous book to see where the work started. It truly is a great piece of work leaving you in no doubt as to why he is the household name that he now is.

“Puberty blues”

Though many of the themes explored in King's first novel - the onset of puberty, teen angst, peer pressure and marginalisation - are developed further in novels such as Christine, Carrie remains one of his... More

“Half decent”

It's the epistolary style which ruins this otherwise good novel. The letters/newspaper clippings don't really add to the plot or give further insight into the characters. However, the title character is... More
