I have to say that Steven King‘s novel, Misery, was the best Steven King novel I have ever read, In Misery, Paul Sheldon, a wellknown author, had a very reasonable and passionate fear of Annie Wilkes, his schizophrenic ‘number one fan‘ whose house he was being held prisoner in, Compared to the physical damage she caused him, the psychological damage was far worse, and more captivating for the reader. The mood of seclusion was felt due to the fact that.
for most of the story, there were only two characters. Out there in the Wilderness. anyone could get away With murder, and no one would ever know. Although Paul feared for his life, he also burned with a greater passron to resurrect his romance novel heroine, Misery Chastain. At first he did not want to write the novel because he had finally gotten rid of the burden of writing the annoying soap operas, but once he started writing he got into it and thought it would turn out to be his best work ever.
Sure, Annie cutoff Paul’s foot and thumb, but she also reanimated Paul’s desire to write. In fact, the need to complete this novel was the only thing keeping him from making an actual attempt at escaping, These conflicts of interest, life, and freedom versus once again having creative genius, make the book intriguing and hard to put down: as Paul would say. “the gotta”(the need to know what happens next). The final conlrontation between Paul and Annie would have to be my favorite part in the book.
Its action and suspense surpassed all the gore and violence that had happened prevrously in the novel. It was so realistic because King had been leading up to it throughout the book.
He did this by havrng Paul use the typewriter as a weight to increase strength in his arms and by showmg Paul‘s thoughts and brainstorms of ways he could Annie wrthout her suspecting it. I also liked how vivid the details were; I could picture the scenes in my mind Without any problem. Another I liked about the novel is how much information was given about Annie, especially when her scrapbook was brought out The amount of people and ways she had killed them really showed how smart she was. Stephen King took me into a world of torture and pain! I definitely recommend this novel because the constant fear of a psychopathic exrnurse who likes to use an axe, an electric knife, and a riding mower to get her way demanded my full attention. I also liked the hallucinated ending Paul makes up for himself. The more I read, the more realistic the book seemed, and I could not put the book down. I had become so involved in the lives of these fictional people that I could feel Annie in my room too. Once again, Steven King’s Misery is an amazrngly good book that hooks the reader and never lets go until the end.
