    'Misery' is a gruesome story of torture with blood, guts, and a psychopath. It's a well told tale, the characters are well developed and the fact that there are only two of them never gets boring. It's a real page turner, in fact I finished it tonight after getting off the subway on th...

    To celebrate completing a novel, writer Paul Sheldon goes on a champagne-fueled drive in the Rocky mountains. He winds up in a near fatal car crash, but never fear. He's rescued by Annie Wilkes, his #1 fan... I watched the film version of Misery in those antediluvian days before Goo...

    My whole life people have had a hard time handling my obsessive passionate personality. I don?t ever just like things- I?m either completely enamored with it or not all that interested. It?s just how I was made. My obsession with Harry Potter is seen as ?excessive? and I?...

    Two Sundays ago our family experienced a rather harrowing emergency situation. I'm thrilled to report that tragedy was averted; I'm less excited to share that my arm was broken in the process. A broken arm is a perfectly acceptable price to pay for a whole family, but it is also a p...

    Misery was my first ever Stephen King novel. There I was, an impressionable 14-year-old girl drunk on romances with none-fade-into-black sex scenes. Then my favorite English teacher recommended I read Misery. "Your life will never be the same," he said. He was right. Miser...

    The reason authors almost always put a dedication on a book, Annie, is because their selfishness even horrifies themselves in the end. Goodbye sleep and hello Annie! I'm certain that my favorite book by King will always be Pet Sematary, but this book came pretty close to changi...

    'Misery' is a gruesome story of torture with blood, guts, and a psychopath. It's a well told tale, the characters are well developed and the fact that there are only two of them never gets boring. It's a real page turner, in fact I finished it tonight after getting off the subway on th...

    To celebrate completing a novel, writer Paul Sheldon goes on a champagne-fueled drive in the Rocky mountains. He winds up in a near fatal car crash, but never fear. He's rescued by Annie Wilkes, his #1 fan... I watched the film version of Misery in those antediluvian days before Goo...

    This is King at his best. He takes a totally innocuous subject - an ardent fan, a typewriter, a bedroom door, anything at all - and infuses it with horrifying elements ordinarily reserved for more supernatural spectres. The reader is then thrust down a rabbit hole full of ill-ease, sec...

    You know those times in which you love a book, love it so so much you also start loving the author, and then you promise yourself you?re going to read more of his/her works until you finally declare yourself to be one of their fans? I do, and I bet Annie Wilkes did too. There...

    Another Stephen King classic! A friend had warned me that the book Misery was more graphic than the movie version, and he was right. Usually I try to avoid violent books, but I'm glad I read this one because I appreciated the character of Paul Sheldon, a writer who gets held hostag...

    Misery was the second Stephen King book I ever read. This was very shortly after Dolores Claiborne. I came across Misery much the same way I did Dolores Claiborne - through my mother's subscription to the Stephen King Book Club. The big difference here was, my mother knew about me read...

    'Misery' is a gruesome story of torture with blood, guts, and a psychopath. It's a well told tale, the characters are well developed and the fact that there are only two of them never gets boring. It's a real page turner, in fact I finished it tonight after getting off the subway on th...

    To celebrate completing a novel, writer Paul Sheldon goes on a champagne-fueled drive in the Rocky mountains. He winds up in a near fatal car crash, but never fear. He's rescued by Annie Wilkes, his #1 fan... I watched the film version of Misery in those antediluvian days before Goo...

    Misery was the second Stephen King book I ever read. This was very shortly after Dolores Claiborne. I came across Misery much the same way I did Dolores Claiborne - through my mother's subscription to the Stephen King Book Club. The big difference here was, my mother knew about me read...

    This book took me a full month to read. It's not very long, however the story within is so horrifying I could only read the words in bites. A nibble here, a nibble there. Not only is this book a 5 star read, it has so much about writing in it, you could actually learn a thing or two ab...

    This is King at his best. He takes a totally innocuous subject - an ardent fan, a typewriter, a bedroom door, anything at all - and infuses it with horrifying elements ordinarily reserved for more supernatural spectres. The reader is then thrust down a rabbit hole full of ill-ease, sec...

    You know those times in which you love a book, love it so so much you also start loving the author, and then you promise yourself you?re going to read more of his/her works until you finally declare yourself to be one of their fans? I do, and I bet Annie Wilkes did too. There...

    This book was selected for my bookclub's January group read... Well, we were originally talking about reading Dolores Claiborne, but I suggested something with a more wintry theme, since it is winter and all. (I love reading according to the weather. It's more immersive to me to read b...

    Another Stephen King classic! A friend had warned me that the book Misery was more graphic than the movie version, and he was right. Usually I try to avoid violent books, but I'm glad I read this one because I appreciated the character of Paul Sheldon, a writer who gets held hostag...

    Misery was the second Stephen King book I ever read. This was very shortly after Dolores Claiborne. I came across Misery much the same way I did Dolores Claiborne - through my mother's subscription to the Stephen King Book Club. The big difference here was, my mother knew about me read...

    'Misery' is a gruesome story of torture with blood, guts, and a psychopath. It's a well told tale, the characters are well developed and the fact that there are only two of them never gets boring. It's a real page turner, in fact I finished it tonight after getting off the subway on th...
