Misery, the first fiction I read by King or Stevie as I like to call him, that is in fact the nickname he calls himself in one of the best books I ever read: On Writing.

Misery, the first fiction I read by King or Stevie as I like to call him, that is in fact the nickname he calls himself in one of the best books I ever read: On Writing. I could not put it down and if this says something about King's connection with his "constant reader" then I am hooked. The book can be confusing in that there's a novel within the novel as he re-writes Misery's Return for Annie Wilkes and for the most part, I was concerned only with the Paul Sheldon and Annie Wilkes novel. The story is intense, there's a lot of gory stuff, but I enjoyed it a whole lot more than I thought I would.

This was my first Stephen King novel. I must admit that it will not be my last. After seeing the film, I picked up the book and was startled to see how the story is even more detailed and gruesome and frightening than the film. The humor in the film was necessary for audience sales. The book is more true to life and detailed in human feeling and experience. King has an uncanny way of getting you into the heads of the characters and their emotions. I was terrified by Annie Wilkes and petrified for Paul Sheldon. It is not a light-hearted book and will have you trapped throughout. The imagery is visceral and the writing crisp. Be ready to be terrified and entertained.

Paul Sheldon, a talented author famous mostly for his Misery books (think bodice-ripper romance), has put the finishing touches on his Great American novel, Fast Cars, and, heavily intoxicated, drives down the Colorado Rockies in the midst of a snowstorm. As you would imagine, he wrecks his car and is rescued by his Number 1 Fan, Annie Wilkes. But something isn't quite right with Annie Wilkes...

These past few years, I've been struggling to find books I love, turning to recommendations, old favorites, long-time authors, all in the event of relearning why I love to read. I bought this book based on a recommendation; I saw the movie before reading, and based on that experience (Kathy Bates and James Caan are fantastic!), I decided to read this as a scary Halloween read - and my treadmill read.

And I really, truly enjoyed myself. The cast of characters is short - basically only Paul and Annie - but it's really clear why Stephen King is such a well-loved author. He really writes with craft, creating these characters so deftly. Annie and Paul are complex people, really fascinating to read about and people who, while you don't like them or want to be their friends, you definitely want to see what happens to them next.

I wish I could go on and on about this, as I do with my negative reviews, but as anyone who reviews books know, it's hard to say everything that's great about a book. A book, when well written and intriguing, makes you forget where you are and what time it is. Reading a bad book, you feel every agonizing page and are constantly looking back to see how far away the end is.

I know not all of King's works are great, but this one was a nice addition to my season of "Falling in Love with Reading", and because of that, I would definitely not mind reading more of his works in the future.

Misery, the first fiction I read by King or Stevie as I like to call him, that is in fact the nickname he calls himself in one of the best books I ever read: On Writing. Misery was intense. I could not put it down and if this says something about King's connection with his "constant reader" then I am hooked. It was also my first horror book and I have to say, for horror, I laughed a whole lot more than necessary perhaps at all the dark comedy and horror happening to Paul Sheldon, the lead character. The book can be confusing in that there's a novel within the novel as he re-writes Misery's Return for Annie Wilkes and for the most part, I was concerned only with the Paul Sheldon and Annie Wilkes novel. The story is intense, there's a lot of gory stuff, but I enjoyed it a whole lot more than I thought I would. I see so much of Steve King in Paul Sheldon, not only because I read his semi-bio/semi-writing book, but because he said so himself about Misery. At times, I was even consuming Paul Sheldon the fictional character with Steven King the actual character, since both are best-selling authors with a dark sense of humor and a crazy obsessive relationship with their craft. One thing is for sure: You will never ever forget Annie Wilkes. Or good old Paul Sheldon for that matter and what's better than reading stuff that will stick with you for a long while?

This is a book that will make you lose sleep and focus, give you laughs and giggles but the kind that you would have when someone else is going through a funny sort of hell, and of course, a good taste of Stephen King, the master of fiction himself. (Well, him and George R.R. Martin!)

I have recognized SK has a tendency of writing a lot of his fictionalized works from personal experience, Misery, seems to continue the trend. I've been a SK fan for awhile - more of his movies, but working on reading as many of his popular books - and ran across watching a biography about his life and being author on TV. It was mentioned that crazed fans of his had a tendency of breaking into his home and even while his beloved wife Tabitha was there alone. This lead him to building a fence around his Maine property so fans couldn't overstep their boundaries. I feel this is where he got his idea for this book.

It's crazy in the age of social media this book, even with its scary elements, holds up water. With Twitter and Facebook you can definitely see the faces of these people. And also know that if your on the opposing end of these fans you can be: harassed, insulted, threaten and/or violently hurt. Even fans can loose control on their favorite entertainers (E.g. the singer Selena loosing her life to her assistant/fan back in the mid-1990s). With this fans can turn into downright lunatics like Annie Wilkes. I usually don't feel sorry for celebrities when they do stupid things but when it comes to life and death matters, hell, they are human too. Paul Sheldon is a prime example of this. He recused by his number one fan after a bad car accident. Annie cares for him until she reads the final Misery novel by Paul in the series and you read Annie isn't mentality right and tortures Paul until he writes a bigger and better novel 'Misery Returns' and if he doesn't do it to her liking - he could die. I've watched the movie several times and while the movie is nicely done, some elements of the book are tweaked (E.g. - Hobbling scene and extremely creepy death scene of the sheriff). The scene are quite vivid and will leave you hanging off your sit in shrieking in terror. Again very good read and chilling story on being an obsessed fan. Don't turn away from reading this one.
