About the book

image4.2/5.0

The #1 New York Times bestseller about a famous novelist held hostage in a remote location by his “number one fan.” One of “Stephen King’s best…genuinely scary” (USA TODAY). 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 a 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... “King at his best…a winner!” —The New York Times “Unadulteratedly terrifying…frightening.” —Publishers Weekly “Classic King…full of twists and turns and mounting suspense.” —The Boston Globe

Movie was good, but the book was so much better. King never fails to develop his characters in the creepiest of ways.

One of the best books I’ve ever read, the characterisation of Annie Wilkes is the main reason I’ve come back to this book many many times. I love how complex and disturbed she is

En thriller klassiker! Bogen er godt skruet sammen og den psykiske kamp er tydelig og kryber sig ind på en. Samtidig er bogen godt skrevet. Det er min første Stephen King, men bestemt ikke min sidste!
