Staff Reviews

The master of horror has once again brought to life a terrifyingly perfect tale. Paul Sheldon is an author of unrivaled fame, known mainly for his Misery Chastain novels that has spanned his entire career, and he has finally had enough of Misery. Enter Annie Wilkes who will stop at literally nothing to get Paul to bring her favorite character back to life. Perfectly written, and with just the right amount of creepy Misery is in my mind a perfect book. Never have I finished a book with such a smile on my face.

Return to the gripping, suspenseful classic #1 New York Times bestseller by master storyteller Stephen King

Bestselling novelist Paul Sheldon thinks he's finally free of Misery Chastain. In a controversial career move, he's just killed off the popular protagonist of his beloved romance series in favor of expanding his creative horizons. But such change doesn't come without consequences. After a near-fatal car accident in rural Colorado leaves his body broken, Paul finds himself at the mercy of the terrifying rescuer who's nursing him back to health--his self-proclaimed number one fan, Annie Wilkes. Annie is very upset over what Paul did to Misery, and demands that he find a way to bring her back by writing a new novel--his best yet, and one that's all for her. After all, Paul has all the time in the world to do so as a prisoner in her isolated house...and Annie has some very persuasive and violent methods to get exactly what she wants....
