'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 the platform before I walked home But this book is than just a thriller just like King is than just a pulp writerI read an article by the ever optimistic and cheerful Harold Bloom in college about how dismayed he was that young people like Stephen King so much All the literature crtics I've read hate King and it seems like it's just because people actually enjoy reading his work Yeah Bloom I said 'work' just like I would about Tolstoy's 'work' because Stephen King as damned hard worker Think of all the books he's churned out over the last few decades I'd like to see Harold Bloom show enough imagination to write fiction instead of just criticizing it all the timeI'm actually new to Stephen King's fiction I've read a few of the essays and articles he's written and a really great graduation speech he gave at UMaine awhile ago in which he extolled the virtues of our mutual home state but this is only my 3rd novel by him I like this guy and I know why too It's not just because he makes me scream and I have a hard time putting his books down it's because King loves writing He has a real and self aware relationship with what it means to be a writer He knows he's not Tolstoy or Faulkner he doesn't try to write that way He knows how to tell a good god damned story and he has a passion for it I appreciate his self awareness as a writer and the fact that he ackowledges how difficult the whole process is while not making us feel like he's somehow superior because he's figured out how to do itIn 'Misery' it's almost like we get to watch King write this story He doesn't just set us up for a crazy story and watch us discover things about his characters it feels like he actually comes with us and makes the discoveries at the same time we do That's what makes a good storyteller And I don't give a damn if Bloom likes him or not

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 enad 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’m constantly made fun of for my fondness of it I get asked “aren’t you a little old for that” almost regularly and I have given up trying to respond because I really don’t feel it necessary to explain myself to anyone I am also ridiculed for my obsession with Stephen King I find his writing to be nothing short of amazing and people who aren't fans of his just think he writes “that horror and gore crap” Surely a serious reader can’t be a King fan According to a lot of people I know it works the same way when flipped around a King fan cannot be a serious reader Well I will tell you I am both I am a King fan and and a serious reader But I’m not always a serious reviewer For you all I have compiled a list This list is my defense Reasons Why I’m NOT the Real Life Annie Wilkes 1 I would never harm Stephen King in any way shape or form Not intentionally anyway I may accidentally harm him by tripping over my own feet in a rush to get to him and crash into him causing him to fall through a window Or I might tackle him from behind in an attempt to hug him fiercely I might even bite him just to see if he’s real BUT I would not hurt him2 I have never killed anyone I think legally I am reuired to say that3I don’t have an unlimited supply of any type of narcotic I have a cousin who’s a doctor but he’s of the Straight and Narrow variety 4 I don’t have lapses in my thoughts5 I understand the severity of an addiction and understand fully that King has struggled with it in his past therefore I wouldn't get him hooked on a painkiller to make him completely dependent on me6 I wouldn’t want to have Stephen King in my home Don’t get me wrong I have a beautiful home but his house is way fucking cooler I mean gargoyles on a wrought iron gate that looks like a spiderweb HOW fucking awesome 7 Being that I want to be in his house so bad I would just like to sneak in a back window and hide in a cupboard and live in his house without him knowing for as long as possible I’d sneak a shower in his shower smell his clothes lie on his side of the bed lick his typewriteryou know those kinds of things 8 I want to be friends with Stephen King not make him fear for his life I think if he were to meet me he’d be completely charmed by my glowing personality and welcome me as one of his own by saying “Welcome to the family kid” or something along those lines9 I’d order take out instead of making him eat all that soup in the event that he was in my home We could eat Chinese food while watching old horror flicks together BFFFL10 My final point my name is Stepheny not Annie so I can’t be herAll around this was a great read you should totally check it outAnd for the record Stephen King you have nothing to be afraid of SignedYour Number 1 Fan

I am in trouble here This woman is not rightPaul Sheldon the best selling writer of the Misery novels finds himself rescued from a car accident by his number one fan Annie Wilkes As the former nurse takes care of him in her home she finds out he killed off Misery in his latest novel and decides to keep Paul as her prisoner as he writes Misery back to lifeI read a number of Stephen King books pre bookstagram and pre goodreads therefore I have never written a proper review for these books Revisiting these books through readalongs and listening to audiobooks while running or at the gym gives me the opportunity to do so Unfortunately when I revisited Misery it was in the form of the audiobook and I was not a fan and most certainly NOT its number 1 fan The narrator did such a brilliant job of conveying the truly insane character that is Annie Wilkes but otherwise it was very monotonous and boring at times BUT I know that's not really the case for the book itselfSimilar to Gerald's Game the events of this book primarily take place in one location Ordinarily that would bore the life out of me but King has this ability to grab your attention and keep you hooked anyway That being said there are still some boring parts in this book but they are very few and far between It is literally uite impossible to look away during the interactions between Annie and poor Paul Sheldon Anytime Annie is on the scene she steals the show it's those parts where it's just Paul's meandering thoughts that I would tune out of sometimes This is much better portrayed in the movie for meSomething else that the movie benefits from is cutting out the parts where Paul is writing his new Misery book I honestly have never cared less about anything in my entire life I just DO NOT care This is fair enough when you're reading the book and can just uickly skim over these parts however this is much difficult when listening to the audiobook I uite honestly feel like this is one of those rare scenarios in which the movie is much superior to the book It takes the GREAT story that King tells and trims it down to a really effective movieAnnie Wilkes is one of King's most iconic characters and the story is one of his most terrifying because there are no scary monsters or supernatural creatures Annie is all human and 100% crazy She also brings a lot of humour to the story for me anyway I can't help but crack up when she goes on rants about different things And the scene with the axe one of the most nail biting stressful and cringeworthy events I've ever read in a bookI really like Misery but I don't seem to regard it as highly as lot of other Constant Readers I can't pinpoint what is exactly I just know it wouldn't make my top 20 list I guess I never really connected with it on a personal level and so many other King books DO make me FEEL so many emotions so it just slides down the list a bit I do think it would be a great starting point for new King fans as it isn't particularly scary it's of a psychological thriller A nice way to introduce yourself to Mr King's works35 stars
