BOOK REVIEW: Misery by Stephen King

In Books

Misery was truly terrifying. Often, I found myself taking my eyes off the page just to breathe heavily, almost reorienting myself to reality.

Annie Wilkes may represent the most terrifying and realistic portrayal of an antagonist I could ever imagine.

I loved that the protagonist was a writer. Added to King’s “On Writing,” we get an interesting glimpse into the mind of a writer through Sheldon’s character. For me, that element of the story was fantastic.

Finally, I loved the absence of paranormality. Typically, King delivers a strong paranormal factor in his novels. While he does this to great effect, and with incredible skill, I appreciated the emphasis on plausibility in this storyline.

Publisher’s Description:

Paul Sheldon. He’s a bestselling novelist who has finally met his biggest fan. Her name is Annie Wilkes and she is more than a rabid reader – she is Paul’s nurse, tending his shattered body after an automobile accident. But she is also his captor, keeping him prisoner in her isolated house.
