i don't know why i was compelled to reread this book, as it freaks my shit out, but reread it i did. just as disturbing as the first time i read it! good to know. ( )

ROSE MADDER doesn't rate near the top of all the Stephen King books I've read. Only one part near the 300-page mark was quite a page turner, but that tense feeling it elicited didn’t last long enough.

A 32-year-old woman named Rosie (not Rose Madder, a color) has been married for 14 years to an abuser, appropriately named Norman because he's also insane. And he is a police detective.

One day she finally leaves their home in an unnamed state and takes a bus to an unnamed Midwestern state. There she finds help and is beginning to get her new life together.

But crazy Norman uses his police training to look for her. Most of ROSE MADDER is about his search and find and Rosie's response.

Stephen King is normally such a great writer, this book, with its silly boring stretches, surprised me. There is nothing wrong with the premise, but he could have made it so much better!

The parts taken up with Norman's viewpoint (italicized) certainly emphasize his insanity, but they are overly long and repetitive. The rest of ROSE MADDER is better, but too much of it is spent inside a painting. While everyone knows that King can deal well with life inside a painting (or a drain or a hole in the ground, etc.), he doesn't in this case. It is too ridiculous.

ROSE MADDER was published in 1995, but I had never heard of it for more than 10 years. Now I know why. ( )

90% of Rose Madder is a departure for Stephen King in my opinion. There is only a small part in the middle of the book which is more his typical style, and of course the ending is what you would expect it to be. The cover of the book, which made me wonder how in the world a bull skull with flowers on its horns fits in with the story, but eventually it does get explained. It's just too bizarre for me to explain it in a few words so I won't even attempt to.
This is a story about Rose Daniels, the classic battered woman. The batterer in this case is her husband, police officer Norman Daniels. Norman is a psychotic, sadistic, controlling, sexist, racist piece of work. A spot of blood on the bedsheet is the catalyst for Rose to leave him after 14 years of hell. Rose Madder tells how Rose Daniels became Rosie McClendon, independent woman. Of course she meets a new man, falls in love, gets a good job and her own place, and of course Norman is going to follow her to teach her a lesson or, as he puts it "talk to her up close", all because she dared to steal his bank ATM card and take $350 (or so he tells himself). By the end of the novel he is a stark raving lunatic. A strange painting Rosie buys at a pawn shop figures prominently in the story, and this is where the King-ness comes into play.
When Rosie's fear turns to anger, you almost sit up and cheer because you want so badly for her to be free of Norman. When Norman finally gets his comeuppance, fittingly it is at the hands of women who are stronger than him.
Overall, this was a very good read. 4 stars out of 5 ( )

Das Bild ist ein Buch, das unter die Haut geht. Bei GoodReads gibt es einige Rezensenten, die sich an der Figur Norman Daniels stören. Er seine Karikatur. Er hätte keinerlei ‚redeeming features‘. Und ja, das stimmt. Es gibt an ihm nichts Gutes. Er ist ein narzisstischer Psychopath der schlimmsten Sorte. Die Kapitel aus seiner Sicht waren purer Horror. Soviel Hass. Null Empathie. Er war ein Monster. Und mehr würde er für mich auch niemals sein, egal, ob es an ihm ein Fünkchen gutes geben würde oder nicht.

Rose dabei ist eine faszinierende Figur. King hat die Persönlichkeit einer Überlebenden häuslicher Gewalt hervorragend eingefangen. Auch, als ihr die Flucht gelingt und Norman auf seiner Suche nach ihr anfängt andere Menschen zu töten, und sie sich die Schuld gibt dafür….es ist einfach nur aus der Realität gegriffen und jeder, der es nicht nachvollziehen kann, warum Frauen solange bei solchen Männern bleiben, sollte dieses Buch lesen. Nicht nur, um es nachvollziehen zu können, sondern auch um zu erkennen, welche Methoden gewalttätige Partner verwenden, um ihre PartnerInnen (ich möchte hier auch Männer einschließen, die Opfer häuslicher Gewalt sind) einzulullen.

Dieses Buch raubt den Lesenden den Atem. Es ist spannend bis zum Schluss. Auch die sich entwickelnde Beziehung zwischen Rose und Bill Steiner ist so realistisch eingefangen und strotzt nicht einfach nur vor Klischees.

Rose begegnet auf ihrem Weg vielen anderen Frauen. Starken Persönlichkeiten, die so viel Schlimmes im Leben durchmachen mussten und sich davon nicht haben unterkriegen lassen.

Es benötigt jedoch definitiv einen Content Hinweis auf extreme körperliche und sexuelle Gewalt und häuslichen Missbrauch.

Fazit:
Das Bild besticht durch eine beeindruckende Hauptfigur und viele genauso beeindruckende Nebenfiguren. Das übernatürliche Element in Form des Bildes finde ich persönlich bei dieser Geschichte eher überflüssig. Mir wäre es lieber gewesen, Norman Daniels wäre dem Rechtssystem zugeführt worden statt seinem grausamen Tod (auch wenn ich diesen zurecht verdient ansehe). Ohne dieses übernatürliche Element wäre das eine 5-Powerknöpfchen-Bewertung geworden. So sind es leider nur vier. ( )

between 3 and 3.5. i'm actually not entirely sure why i enjoyed this as much as i did, except that the writing is really good. he got the characterization of the main characters well, and i guess i wanted to make sure that norman would get what was coming to him, because i read this quickly and even when i wasn't reading it i was thinking about it. but in parts it was too gruesome for what i would think i'd like, there's a weird supernatural element that isn't usually my thing, and i'm not sure what the point of the book is at all. i don't even think he gets the main thing entirely right - this is about domestic violence and coming out the other side of it (which i guess is why i like it) but it doesn't feel like he paints the survivor community *quite* right, although it feels close. i guess i was also working in the field 10-15 years after this was written, and it could have changed in that time. and he does get some aspects of the work and the community so most of it definitely rang true to me. regardless, the writing brought me right into the story and i was constantly wanting to get back to it to see how it turned out. the premise is solid and it's well done. rose's voice is clear and believable and sucked me right in. i'd prefer that she finds her strength and saves herself without any supernatural aide, but i'm sure he's not making any kind of statement with that part of the story. just my preference that she could have, with the help of compassionate and understanding women, come to the place she did, and leave the supernatural out entirely. (but then leaving the supernatural out is always my preference.)

when he mixes the very real with a touch of supernatural, as he does here, it almost can be that the supernatural is just in the mind of the character (but it's not). it's almost what i love so much - the not knowing if a character is going crazy or if what they see is really happening. this is a similar kind of thing, but it's not as powerful to me. still, it worked well here. (with the exception of when norman disappears. it's not just that it was hard to believe that he'd come in her apartment, shoot out the shower, leave without harming her. it's also that he killed at least 4 people that day, 2 of them police officers, and there's no way that they would "just keep searching" for him in that situation. they'd assume mortal danger for her and bill and they should have been terrified. since they wouldn't be, that should be a huge flag.)

i'm not sure why he returns to the domestic violence theme, although he does write it well, and it brings me in every time. from the first paragraph i was more or less hooked: "She sits in the corner, trying to draw air out of a room which seemed to have plenty just a few minutes ago and now seems to have none. From what sounds like a great distance she can hear a thin whoop-whoopsound, and she knows this is air going down her throat and then sliding back out again in a series of feverish little gasps, but that doesn't change the feeling that she's drowning here in the corner of her living room, looking at the shredded remains of the paperback novel she was reading when her husband came home." (which, for a fun easter egg, was a paul sheldon novel. i love how he does that.) ( )
