I really like talking/thinking about the book Carrie. It’s so good. I saw the movie first, then read the book, then listened to the audio book (I made Sam listen to it on our way to St.Augustine, at first he was very much against the idea but by the end he was like HELL YEAH FUCK THAT TOWN) and then saw the movie again. The movie really sucks in comparison to the book. It leaves out all the badass scenes of her burning the whole fucked up town to the ground. Doesn’t present the information from a scientific point of view at all. I hate how the movie implied that the ability was out of her control (her mother says its the devil but that she doesn’t realize it, then later when she kills her mother she almost immediately shows regret over it as if it was out of her control) but in the book, it goes out of its way to tell and show us that she has complete control and even though she does show remorse for what has happened, what she wanted couldn’t be and she doesn’t act like she REGRETS it necessarily. More like, she made a hard choice and now she is sad. Anyway, they used to have this book on the shelf at the bookstore for some feminist literature class at uga and I was always wishing I could sit in on those lectures because I bet it’s fascinating and awesome.
