To be perfectly honest, I thought this was a great book.
[Yes, I understand that the physical abuse Annie does to Paul is horrific and disgusting, but as a writer, I thought it was great stuff.:]
Stephen King was amazingly descriptive and had a great plot. I could really tell how much work must have been involved. When I decided I wanted to be a writer, my English teacher told me to explore anything and everything I hadn't already read.
So when I picked up Misery, I wasn't expecting this:
Paul Sheldon is an author of a very dramatic series titles Misery. When he gets in a car crash one night and shatters his legs, and breaks his pelvis, he is rescued by his number-one-fan, Annie Wilkes.
But Annie Wilkes didn't like the ending to the last Misery book, so she makes Paul write a whole different book. One just for her, one she would kill Paul after she read.
But as Annie goes insane, and Paul slowly does too, things change for both of them, and the only Paul can do is survive.
