I consider this to be King's best literary work. I also consider it to be one of the best pieces of literature in the 20th C. It has nearly all literary motifs, and heavy in symbolism. A good read, and a good study in lit!
Absolutely heartbreaking, although whilst being a huge movie geek this book is one that a film simply cannot convey. The emotions, the dialogue in Carries thoughts is something that film sometimes, sadly, can simply not convey.
