Carrie is a horror novel written by Stephen King in 1974. It is tells the story of Carrie White, a mousy misfit in her school, who is picked on mercilessly by classmates and ostracized for her eccentric background (her mother is a religious fanatic). Some of the students are punished, and one shows her sympathy, asking her boyfriend to take her to the prom instead, but some want revenge and hatch an evil plan to humiliate her. What none of the students realize is that Carrie has the power of telekinesis. When she gets mad, she transforms from an innocent girl into a rage-filled monster, making it a prom no one will forget.

The book in hands of an Other ("A Tale of Two Cities")

In Lost

  • Members of the Others' book club were sitting around discussing the novel when the plane crashed. ("A Tale of Two Cities")
    • Juliet states it as her "all-time favorite book."
    • Another member of the club, Adam, disagrees, saying that it was "by-the-numbers religious hokum-pokum" and that Ben didn't like it.
  • A different edition of the book (not the same cover) is seen in Juliet's flashback, on Rachel's nightstand. ("Not in Portland") See the image here.
  • Ben reads Carrie in his library for the forthcoming book club discussion, and complains that he finds it depressing. ("One of Us") This is again a different edition, the paperback edition.

Trivia
