Ggest fan Her name is Annie Wilkes and she is than a rabid reader she is Paul's nurse tending his shatter To celebrate completing a novel writer Paul Sheldon goes on a champagne fueled drive in the Rocky mountains He winds up in a near fatal car crash but never fear He's rescued by Annie Wilkes his #1 fanI watched the film version of Misery in those antediluvian days before Goodreads hell before the Internet and decided to finally read the novel when it showed up on my BookGorilla email one day It was 299 very well spentMisery is a tale of obsession addiction and obsession I wrote obsession twice but it's a such a big theme I thought it was justified Annie Wilkes is obsessed with her favorite series of books starring Misery Chastain written by that dirty birdie Paul Sheldon Paul is obsessed with finishing the book Annie has demanded of him and probably addicted to writing Also to codeineI've said it before but I'll say it again If Stephen King wasn't addicted to scaring the bodily fluids out of people he'd be a literary writer of some renown The guy can flat out write Just because he cranks out a best seller often than most of us go to the dentist doesn't mean he's the real dealThe scariest horror stories are the ones that could actually happen and Misery is one of those Who among us hasn't had visions of being held captive when driving through a remote locale? Annie is so much than the scene chewing maniac she could have been She has dimension and believes she's in the right which is the mark of a great villain Her background is very fleshed out and my heart sank as I learned her past along with Paul How the hell was he going to escape that monster?Paul's journey is painful both to him and to the reader thanks to King's skill I had to make sure my foot was still attached a couple times Annie puts him through hell and he finally gives her a taste of her own medicine but the ending is far from happily ever afterAs is usually the case the book was a notch better than the movie I've been easy with the 5's this year but I'll give this one a cockadoodie 5 out of 5 stars just the same
