I was at my little brother's soccer game when I read that part. On our way home he kept asking my why I looked so pale. All that stuff about the squeal of the bone being shattered... I've got a tough stomach, though. I love **reading** about that kind of stuff, it brings excitement into my life. :D

203 I'm a few hundred pages into reading IT now. :) Thus far, it is my second favorite SK book after Misery. Amazing characterizations of all of them!

203 Yes, Kathy Bates was incredible!! I really liked the movie, mostly because of the cast. I did think there were several things wrong with it. It did not include Paul's addiction to Novril, which I thought added a lot to the relationship between the two; he depended on her for the drugs. I also think the ending was terrible! So un-Stephen King! There's no way he would get out of that ordeal as sane as he was in the end of the movie.

My favorite part in the book is where he finally snaps when the police find him and starts babbling nonsense; yet another part that should have been included in the movie.

All in all, as far as movies go, I thought Misery was great, but you can't make a movie that portrays Paul's declining mental state as well as the book did.

203 Yeah, Gage was creepy in the end.

I just watched the Misery movie (still NEED to read the book!! Can't wait to go to the library!!) and I think Annie is the scariest by far.

203 I've only read a few of his books, but so far The Shining is by far my favorite.
