User Reviews

Lives up to the book.
4 June 2021 | by durham100See all my reviews

I bought Carrie when it came out and have been reading his works ever since. There have been many masterpieces and a small number not so good - but always there was something good in them which I enjoyed and to write as much as he has and never fall below top class is a tough, maybe impossible ask. I read Liseys story and hated it. It was slow, boring and turgid - I was disappointed and sad. It was the first King book I wanted to end quickly so I could just put it away and forget about it. It was like it wasn't written by him at all.

I thought I'd give the tv series a go in the hope that it may offer some redemption.

It doesn't. It's just like the book. It is self indulgent, over the top arty, confusing and ultimately unsatisfying. Julianne Moore is wonderful as she always is and does the best she can with what she is given to work with. Clive Owen is as wooden as often as she is amazing and makes no change for this role. Its early days of course but I am delaying watching the second one as two in a row would be far too much to endure. It's a totally different type of story of course but this is no better, indeed is much worse, than the recent version of The Stand which at least offered some decent set pieces and some humour. I hope it improves but after the books first few chapters, it certainly didn't so I don't hold out much hope. Sorry Mr. King, just telling it how I see it.

P. S I have a Samsung phone and loved Servant...
