For Christmas I gave Cal the Stephen King book "Carrie." He likes King's writing and I did not see it on his shelf upstairs. Unfortunately, I did not realize that he already had the story. It was in a collection of books written by King that Cal took to IU. He decided that he would exchange it for Misery - definitely another good read.
Thus, I picked up a new copy of Misery at Barnes & Noble after the holidays, but instead of taking Carrie back I decided that I would read it. I hadn't read a Stephen King novel in quite some time and I thought the movie Carrie was good, so last weekend I picked it up and found it to be very interesting. The book tells the story as a commission on telekinesis. The events of the end of the movie are already known at the beginning of the book. I actually like that better. It is not quite as scary that way. It is also a quick read which I appreciate as well. Glad I decided to give it a try. It gives me something to look forward at the end of the school day.
