I have not read anything that is as brilliant as this!! Well atleast in this genre..
This was gross but at the same time kept you on your toes. There isn't much of a suspense but still one gets scared about how it all ends.
I don't have words to explain how i am feeling. I just finished the book and sat for 15 mins straight staring at nothing.
It wouldn't be on my recomendation list because it contains a hell lot of unappetizing stuffs.
But it sure will be on the list of books that pulled me deep inside them and made me believe i was right there when all that happened. ( )

I listened to this on Audible

---

This is the story about a writer, Paul Sheldon, who after a car crash is rescued by his biggest fan, Annie Wilkes. Only it turns out he hadn’t been rescued at all. Not at all. He had been captured and was now a prisoner. What follows is, well… chilling. There’s really no other way to put it. This story was the most wicked work of fiction I’ve experienced in quite some time, maybe even ever.

Imagine a psychotic nut kidnapping you, and then imagine that that psychotic nut just happens to be your biggest fan. She has all your books and just loves you. Oh, and on top of that, imagine that she’s completely freaking pissed that you killed off her favorite character. Not good, dude. Not good at all.

Every second spent in this world was nerve-wracking and heart-pounding. It was brilliant and shocking. In one scene **SPOILER ALERT** **SPOILER ALERT** **SPOILER ALERT** Paul has his foot cut off with an ax, and later he has his thumb cut off with an electric knife. This churned my stomach big time.

Stephen King delivers an alarmingly real story that just doesn’t let up. Not even for a second. You would think that being locked in a room and forced to write back to life a character you killed off, with a psycho looming over you, would be bad enough. But King likes to take things to the limit and with this one he truly does. What helps this book a lot is the fact that everything that happens, could actually happen. Even with scenes taken to their utmost limit, nothing within this story is unrealistic. Not a single line of it.

If you read this story, or listen to it, you will not finish it without sweaty palms and your ass perched on the edge of your seat.

Now about that ending…

I won’t spoil anything for you, but… damn, just… damn. What an ending. I honestly had an ending in my head, one that I thought the story had set up perfectly, but I was surprised and pleasantly so. I loved it. It was action-packed. Also it was emotional. As it should be after experiencing Paul’s story.

Does Paul survive? Does Annie add another kill to her belt?

I don’t know… well, I do, but you’ll just have to find out for yourself. ( )

Zipped right through the audiobook. Just as mesmerizing as the first time I read it. King remains my problematic fave, as usual. ( )

Re-read in Sept/Oct 2020.

It lost its "favorite status" for me and dropped to 4*. The story within the story was a waste of time and though I think info dumps via photo albums / scrapbooks are pretty genius this one was a bit excessive.

I really enjoy the first chapter where the MC is becoming aware of his surroundings and how the metaphor of the pilings and the tide is used. I may save my copy to have access to that bit of writing but I doubt I'd ever read the full book again.



And of course I'll always have Annie's "cockadoodie"

Audiobook narrator is a great Annie: Lindsay Crouse
---------------

The movie does an almost perfect recreation of the book. They strayed with the ending iirc. I'll re-watch soonish.

SK says this but I don't really get it: "Misery is a book about cocaine. Annie Wilkes is cocaine. She was my number-one fan."

When you look into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you.

-- Friedrich Nietzsche
Writing does not cause misery, it is born of misery.

-- Montaigne
It's no good. I've been trying to sleep for the last half-hour, and I can't. Writing here is a sort of drug. It's the only thing I look forward to. This afternoon I read what I wrote. . . . And it seemed vivid. I know it seems vivid because my imagination fills in all the bits another person wouldn't understand. I mean, it's vanity. But it seems a sort of magic. . . . And I just can't live in this resent. I would go mad if I did.

-- John Fowles

The Collector
"You will be visited by a tall, dark stranger," the gipsy woman told Misery, and Misery, startled, realized two things at once: this was no gipsy, and the two of them were no longer alone in the tent. She could smell Gwendolyn Chastain's perfume in the moment before the madwoman's hands closed around her throat.

"In fact," the gipsy who was not a gipsy observed, "I think she is here now."

Misery tried to scream, but she could no longer even breathe.


-- Misery's Child
"It always look data way, Boss Ian," Hezekia said, "No matter how you look at her, she seem like she be lookin' at you. I doan know if it be true, but the Bourkas, dey say even when you get behin' her, the godess, she seem to be lookin' at you."

"But she is, after all, only a piece of stone, Ian remonstrated.

"Yes, Boss Ian," Hezekia agreed. "Dat what give her powah.
