|Appears In||A Tale of Two Cities|
Carrie was Stephen King's first published novel. 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 U.S. schools and the film version was banned in Finland. Fans often see it as more of an emotionally touching story due to its portrayal of high school bullying and it has, at times, been a favorite amongst the Goth subculture. Much of the book is written in epistolary structure in the form of newspaper clippings, letters, excerpts from books, etc. Brian De Palma created a film version in 1976. This is one of the few adaptations of a Stephen King novel that the author himself appreciated.
