An outcast girl with telekinesis wreaks havoc at her prom.
I’m ending the year by clearing some easy reads off my nightstand, and gearing up for some big reads in the first part of 2007: Wilkie Collins’s The Moonstone, Fyodr Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov, Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, and Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities. I’m not sure if I’ve got the best translations of the Tolstoy & Dostoyevsky–any advice?
I’ve read Carrie a zillion times and it never ceases to thrill me. I was fortunate enough to read it before I saw the movie (a favorite of mine), but now the two intermingle in my mind to form one seamless text.
