Her name is Annie Wilkes, and she is more than a rabid reader—she is Paul’s nurse, tending his shattered body after an automobile accident.

What could I possibly add to what has already been said about this astounding novel in the last thirty years? It is a bonafide King classic, an excellent entry in the man's oeuvre by virtually any standard of judgement. Kick-ass villain? Check. Tightly-wound plotting? Check. Believable situation? Ch...

I call myself a Stephen King fan (not his number one fan), but I had somehow never read Misery. Oops. I have seen the movie several times, though, if that counts.

I’ve been meaning to read Misery for years and just never seemed to get around to it. A couple weeks ago I randomly found a copy at the thrift store and I’m so glad I did. I’m a huge Stephen King fan and Misery was such a great read—I couldn’t put it down until I was done. It was gruesome and horrif...
