Zipped right through the audiobook. Just as mesmerizing as the first time I read it. King remains my problematic fave, as usual. ( )

Re-read in Sept/Oct 2020.

It lost its "favorite status" for me and dropped to 4*. The story within the story was a waste of time and though I think info dumps via photo albums / scrapbooks are pretty genius this one was a bit excessive.

I really enjoy the first chapter where the MC is becoming aware of his surroundings and how the metaphor of the pilings and the tide is used. I may save my copy to have access to that bit of writing but I doubt I'd ever read the full book again.



And of course I'll always have Annie's "cockadoodie"

Audiobook narrator is a great Annie: Lindsay Crouse

The movie does an almost perfect recreation of the book. They strayed with the ending iirc. I'll re-watch soonish.

SK says this but I don't really get it: "Misery is a book about cocaine. Annie Wilkes is cocaine. She was my number-one fan."

first king book i've read and definitely worthwhile. the emphasis on drug addiction and the sort of "stream-of-consciousness" writing style was really cool. loved it. ( )

This is wonderfully claustrophobic, with most of the book spent confined to one room. ( )

This is a fantastic example of what Stephen King does best. It is terrifying, but not in a jump scare way, and I had no idea how it was going to end. There were some parts my eyes glossed over (like the excerpts of Paul's writing), and there's definitely some graphic scenes, but overall I was riveted. I've read a lot of Stephen King, and I have to say that MISERY is a new favorite. ( )

When you look into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you.

-- Friedrich Nietzsche
Writing does not cause misery, it is born of misery.

-- Montaigne
It's no good. I've been trying to sleep for the last half-hour, and I can't. Writing here is a sort of drug. It's the only thing I look forward to. This afternoon I read what I wrote. . . . And it seemed vivid. I know it seems vivid because my imagination fills in all the bits another person wouldn't understand. I mean, it's vanity. But it seems a sort of magic. . . . And I just can't live in this resent. I would go mad if I did.

-- John Fowles

The Collector
"You will be visited by a tall, dark stranger," the gipsy woman told Misery, and Misery, startled, realized two things at once: this was no gipsy, and the two of them were no longer alone in the tent. She could smell Gwendolyn Chastain's perfume in the moment before the madwoman's hands closed around her throat.

"In fact," the gipsy who was not a gipsy observed, "I think she is here now."

Misery tried to scream, but she could no longer even breathe.


-- Misery's Child
"It always look data way, Boss Ian," Hezekia said, "No matter how you look at her, she seem like she be lookin' at you. I doan know if it be true, but the Bourkas, dey say even when you get behin' her, the godess, she seem to be lookin' at you."

"But she is, after all, only a piece of stone, Ian remonstrated.

"Yes, Boss Ian," Hezekia agreed. "Dat what give her powah.
