Synopsis:

Unaware that she possesses a terrifying power, Carrie White creates much destruction in a small, quiet New England town.


Review:

"Maybe, strictly speaking, it is not a mystery book. But it does have action, suspense and, at the end, a holocaust. And it is exceedingly well-written. So don't miss 'Carrie' by Stephen King, a first novel and one guaranteed to give you a chill....King does more than tell a story. He is a schoolteacher himself, and he gets into Carrie's mind as well as into the minds of her classmates. He also knows a thing or two about symbolism--blood symbolism especially. That this is a first novel is amazing. King writes with the kind of surety normally associated only with veteran writers. This mixture of science-fiction, the occult, secondary-school sociology, kids good and bad and genetics turns out to be an extraordinary mixture."

Newgate Callendar, New York Times Book Review, 5/26/74
