Show Notes:

King's first novel, Carrie, was a bestseller, the first of dozens for the prolific horror author. Now Arnie reads and reviews the novel as preparation for the new Carrie film coming to theaters October, 2013.

Carrie is the tale of a telekinetic teenage outcast, was phenomenal success for any book, let alone the first-published work of a new author.  It's film rights were pursued by Brian De Palma and the paperback sold a million copies.  But such is the legacy of Stephen King, a man who's words spark imagination and bring even non-readers into bookstores.  

As a new film based on Carrie is released in theaters Arnie begins this Books & Nachos podcast retrospective looking back on all King's published works.  In this episode he reviews Carrie in light of King's later works, examining the themes, character types, and plot devices King would return to again and again.

The new movie's ads say "You Will Know Her Name" but will you know the whole story?  Listen to this episode of Books & Nachos to find out!
