This is a nice glimpse in to Stephen King's early work, I won't go in to any details about the plots of the books as most of you probably already know.
'Carrie' is his first book so it is quite short and disjointed compared to his later works but it is much quicker to the point and that works well with this book (doesn't mean his longer books are worse) and though this may not stand up to King's best works such as 'The Shining', 'It' or 'Pet Sematary' it is still worth 5 stars just about.
On the other hand 'The Tommyknockers' is one of those longer books and though this may work for some other of King's works, in my opinion it doesn't work as well here. The story takes a little to long to get in to the meat of it and when he writes about aliens it seems SK loses some of his 'edge-of-the-seat' touch (have a look at 'Dreamcatcher').
This is a good introduction to SK but overall falls short of 5 star material ... but only just.

My favourite Stephen King novel was delivered on time and it is in very good condition. Love the 70s cover - wish they still made them this way! Thanks very much.
