Rolling Stone: If you had to pick your best book, what would it be>
SK: Lisey's Story. That one felt like an important book to me because it was about marriage, and I'd never written about that. I wanted to talk about two things. One is the secret world that people build inside a marriage, and the other was that even in the intimate world, there's still things that we don't know about each other.

Many view this work of Stephen King's as a "different" kind of horror story, and while I found that to be true, it didn't hook me the way other King stories have. There was a great deal of terminology repetition that should have kept me questioning what it all meant, but really didn't (constant reference to blood-bools, smucking, smuckup, strapping it on, SOWISA, to name a few...).
Widow Lisey Landon has a stalker who is after her dead husband's papers. As a well known and prize winning author, his unpublished manuscripts could be worth a fortune. We don't know how Scott died, but we do know he survived an assassination attempt and Lisey has other memories too terrible to recall. Her horrible thoughts are repeatedly cut off in mid-sentence, a tactic designed to keep the reader in suspense, but ultimately ended up annoying this particular reader. In the winter of 1996 something happened; something that was too terrible to conjure completely. Lisey stops herself from thinking through her memory.
It is true that damaged people seek out other damaged people to form a warped kind of kinship. It is only natural that Scott, a product of unspeakable abuse and horror, should gravitate towards Lisey whose own sister practices self-mutilation (and ultimately falls into a catatonic state). Lisey sees all the warning signs before marrying Scott but decides to ignore them. The good moments far outweigh the bad. Isn't that always the way in abusive relationships?
King is an expert at hinting at danger to come. There is always something ominous lurking around the corner, just out of sight. Hints, whispers, winking in the dark like strands of smoke from an arson's fire... ( )

When I read this book years ago I remember loving it and even crying while reading. Now I see the flaws in this book all over the place. It doesn't help that at the time I had not read most of King's works so I didn't see how he heavily "borrowed" from his other stories. If you are a Castle Rock fan this book is full of Easter eggs for you.



Heck, if you are a King fan you can seriously see parts of this book that reference previous books and even future books too. I am definitely glad that I re-read it, but am disappointed by the shallow character development of Lisey and Scott. The secondary characters were not much better and even the man named Dooley was lame as well. And even though this was Lisey's story, it wasn't. It was the story of Scott and she was the only one who ended up really knowing what happened to his father and brother.

Lisey's story follows Lisey Landon. She has been widowed for two years and seems to finally be waking up a bit. She is very well off due to the fact that her husband was an award winning author who left her his entire fortune. She still misses Scott and is still being hounded by those who want whatever lost manuscripts she thinks she is hoarding. When a man calls and threatens to hurt her if she doesn't give up any writing that Scott left, it leads Lisey to follow a path that Scott left behind for her to follow.

I honestly can't remember if I have found King to write women very well beyond some key characters such as Susannah (the Dark Tower series) Rose Daniels (Rose Madder) and Dolores Claiborne (Dolores Claiborne). He really did not write Lisey very well. She just seemed to only exist for Scott and had even picked up the way he talked. We find out that she didn't really do anything besides support her husband and get him through his "episodes." Most of this book is Lisey hiding from herself things that Scott told her and she even experienced while married to him. King tries to call this out as secrets that marriages have that they don't speak of, but I went, or when two dysfunctional people find each other. We also know that Lisey has three other sisters and she feels love and frustration in equal parts for them. She feels like a prototype to me of Holly that ends up being central in the Bill Hodges trilogy and in "The Outsider." I really wish I had gotten any idea what Lisey liked besides Kool-Aid, cigarettes, and eating Hamburger Helper meals when she wants some comfort.

Scott had no depth to me at all. It was so weird that this was a story of a marriage of two people who supposedly were deep in love with each other. All he and Lisey apparently did were have sex and discuss and then hide away from his childhood. What drew them together? I didn't get that vibe of falling in love and needing each other like Roland and Susan (Wizard and the Glass) or Susannah and Eddie (The Drawing of the Three). King can write love stories, I just didn't get that here. Scott was too dependent on Lisey for his mental health and just overall happiness, one wonders what would have happened if she had passed away first. We also get no sense of him as a writer. We just hear that he's super talented and someone became a millionaire. I am guessing that Scott is a bit of a stand-in for King and his other characters he has written that were writers like Tad Beaumont (The Dark Half) and Mike Noonan (Bag of Bones).

The other characters in this book are Lisey's sisters and I can't even keep them straight besides the sister who ends up going catatonic with Lisey trying to do her best to "holler her home." The character of Dooley made me roll my eyes. It's just a similar character that King had from "Secret Window, Secret Garden" even down to where he lived. It made zero sense except for King to just get a way for Lisey to go back to Boo'ya Moon.

So the writing was just okay. I got sick of reading Lisey saying smucking every freaking day. That apparently was a Scott thing she picked up and it's aggravating. I get that King was trying to show how linked Lisey was to Scott that she even talked like him, but good grief. I saw some audiobook reviews and though people loved Mare Winningham, they got really tired of Lisey's "voice." And I realize that I did too though probably at a slower rate since I started skipping over anytime I saw the word "smucking" about to make an appearance. I also got sick of hearing and reading about the following words after a while: SOWESA which somehow means strap it on, mandy bunny for her sister named Amanda, BOOL THE END (seriously what the hell does bool even mean?) BOOL (UGH), prize or a drink, RC Cola or Coke. If you strip all of those words out of this book, it just drops down by a least 100 pages.

The flow was not good. King tries to juggle too many plots in this one. We have Lisey trying to find the "bool" that Scott left her. Also Lisey is trying to avoid a man that wants to hurt her as well as do something about her catatonic sister. Oh and Lisey is supposed to unravel the mystery of Boo’ya Moon too. It ends up being too much. After a while things read as very repetitive and you wonder at how smart Lisey is since she keeps doing some really dumb things.

The setting of this book has Lisey nearby to Castle Rock. We even have references to Derry and Dark Score Lake. At one point I wondered if everything was about 5 minutes apart from each other. I wish that King had included a map of where Castle Rock, Dark Score Lake, and Derry all were. I just like visual things like that. We also of course have Boo'ya Moon which is similar to another place that Constant Readers will recall from "Rose Madder."

The ending was a letdown to me honestly. Once again it just echoed "Rose Madder." And I didn't get the whole thing with Lisey being left a story. I was letdown about what that story was in the end.

That said this book references other King works such as: "Bag of Bones," "Rose Madder," "IT," "Needful Things," "The Dark Tower series," "Secret Window, Secret Garden," "The Dark Half," and "Misery." ( )

i should have liked this so much more than i did. it was quintessential stephen king (in its methodology and style, it has elements of mental health issues, surviving abuse, and writing. basically it's a blueprint for a book of his that should really work well for me. but i didn't like it at all until more than 200 pages in, and even then it was another 200 pages for it to actually grow on me. there was something wrong with this for me, in spite of it being almost tailor made for my taste. i so greatly disliked the language and the main character's love, who was really the driver of - if not the story - then the way it was told. (truly, he was the main character, even though we were supposed to think that she was. everything that mattered about her came back to him.) i felt, for one of the only times ever, that he contradicted himself, that he didn't handle it well (the regression into talking like a child was overdone and fell flat), that the reason for it all was contrived (there was no reason at all for her to want to kill her stalker rather than have the police take him away; especially considering that it was because of his mental illness that he was obsessing with her in the first place, and both her beloved big sister and her husband suffered from mental illness - i think she would have been more sympathetic.) there was so much that didn't work for me. i liked it better by the end, and i always love his little afterwords that make me feel like he's talking to me, but i still can't rate it higher than this. other than his books with real writing and editing issues (i'm looking at you pet semetary, this is one of my least favorites. which is especially too bad considering how much i could have liked it.

I bought this novel in hardback when it first came out. For some reason, I didn’t connect with this novel as well as I should have, and didn’t like it very much after reading it. Maybe I needed more from this novel than it could give me at the time, I’m not sure. But it’s been years since the first reading, and I thought I’d give this novel another chance. I’ve grown some (I’d like to think), my marriage is in a much sturdier place now than it was back then, and I’ve experienced a deep loss (or two) much like the main character of this novel. And somehow, within these changes to me and my psyche, I’ve connected better to this novel.
For this reread, I decided on the audiobook narrated by Mare Winningham. If you dig audiobooks, I highly recommend you do the same. Her accents are superb, her voice characterizations are fantastic, and I enjoyed every last bit of this novel. She especially excels at performing Young Scott.
Also there is a pretty piece of music at the end of the audiobook (that you unfortunately don’t get to hear in its entirety), that’s called “When the stars go blue”, by Ryan Adams. I recommend listening to it.
I enjoyed this novel so much more than the first time, that I no longer dislike it. I doubt it was entirely the amazing acting abilities of Ms. Winningham, as id like to put some of the praise (or blame, ha) on King. But a large part of this could now be because I can *see* what King was trying to convey about marriage, and sisters. I know, now. I understand completely. And thank you, Mr. King.

So the rating of this novel changes upwards for me, from 2.5 stars (2006) to 4 stars. And I now recommend this novel to anyone who loves marriage, love, being sisters (or just siblings), and has suffered a loss and understands. ( )

Where do you go when you're lonely?

Where do you go when you're blue?

Where do you go when you're lonely?

I'll follow you

When the stars go blue.

-- Ryan Adams
"If I were the moon, I know here I would fall down."

-- D. H. Lawrence, The Rainbow
"She turned, and saw a great white moon looking at her over the hill. And her breast opened to it, she was cleaved like a transparent jewel to its light. She stood filled with the full moon, offering herself. Her two breasts opened to make way for it, her body opened wide like a quivering anemone, a soft, dilated invitation touched by the moon."

-- D. H. Lawrence, The Rainbow
"You are the call and I am the answer,

You are the wish, and I the fulfillment,

You are the night, and I the day.

What else? It is perfect enough.

It is perfectly complete,

You and I,

What more -- ?

Strange, how we suffer in spite of this!"

-- D. H. Lawrence, "Bei Hennef"
