So what did you think of the book? I still want to rent the movie, to see the differences.
I think that I saw this book differently as a teacher than I would have otherwise. There was just so much that was wrong with the way that Carrie's classmates treated her, and honestly, if I had been her teacher, I would have called SRS on her mother long before that girl made it to high school.
As with most of Stephen King's books, this one was slightly unbelievable (I find that his earlier books REALLY are hard to swallow at times), but I really enjoyed the ride that he took me on.
I don't remember all of the killing of the town at the end of the movie - but I certainly remember it from the end of the book, as he described it in vivid detail. I thought it was too much detail at times - there are just some things that I don't need described to me.
