Carrie is an epistolary repulsiveness novel by American creator Stephen King. It was his first novel, delivered on April 5, 1974, with a first print-run of 30,000 duplicates.

King has commented that he finds the work to be “raw” and “with a surprising power to hurt and horrify.” It is one of the most frequently banned books in United States schools, because of Carrie’s violence, cursing, underage sex and negative view of religion.

Much of the book is written in a style like news articles, doctor notes, etc.

Set basically in the then-future year of 1979, it rotates around the eponymous Carrie White, a disagreeable forlorn rebel and harassed secondary school young lady from an oppressive strict family who utilizes her newfound supernatural forces to get payback on the individuals who torture her.
