3x01-Juliet-Carrie
Juliet holding Stephen King's "Carrie". ("A Tale of Two Cities")

In "A Tale of Two Cities", Juliet hosted the meeting of the Book Club, which was discussing Stephen King's Carrie.

  • Adam criticized Juliet's reading selection, saying that Ben wouldn't even read it in the bathroom.
    • In contrast, Ben previously intimated to Locke in "Maternity Leave" that he liked Stephen King, specifically preferring his books to those of Dostoyevsky. This may have been a bit of ironic humor on Ben's part, since the Book Club had been reading a Stephen King novel immediately before witnessing the plane crash, and Ben was interrogated by the survivors 58 days later.
  • Juliet told Adam that it was her favorite book. Later, when the Others were drawn outside by the mid-air breakup of Oceanic Flight 815, she was still clutching the book.
  • Ben was a member, and thought Carrie was depressing. He was apparently kicked out of the club by Juliet after the altercation in his kitchen regarding Ben and Rachel's cancer. ("One of Us")


ObservationsEdit

  • It's notable that so many copies of the same book are available on the Island. The copies of the book are also various editions with different sleeve artwork.
  • If Ben was still in the club, there would be eight members.
