But it's hard for Rosie not to keep looking over her shoulder. Rose-maddened and on the rampage, Norman is a corrupt cop with a dog's instinct for tracking people. And he's getting close. Rosie can feel just how close he's getting...

My book club read this book last month. This is how book club went basically: Joy: Colleen, what was your favorite part of this book? Me: Well, Joy, I'll get to that in a few, but would anyone like some chocolate? (Passes around a bowl of chocolate until they are all staring at me expectantly. Rel...

3.5 StarsIf you can handle a story of horrific abuse, Hannibal Lector's idea of a tasty dinner, and haunted dreams from the beyond, you're going to love ROSE MADDER.Norman "Bates" Daniels is a lunatic cop with a foul mouth and a sick, evil mind, and for wife Rose, a life of fear and pain begins t...

Probably my favorite King book, Rose Madder contains some of his creepiest imagery and the best characterization of a woman that he's managed thus far. It's hard not to get involved in Rosie's problems as she runs from a horrifically abusive marriage. The supernatural horror aspect of the story d...

“The concept of dreaming is known to the waking mind but to the dreamer there is no waking, no real world, no sanity; there is only the screaming bedlam of sleep.” Stephen King can be downright weird with surprises he leaves for the reader. For the bulk of the book, it's an interesting story of an...

I just met crazy rivaling that of Annie Wilkes. Norman Daniels. He’s a special kind of nut. Turns out this book was better than I had anticipated. Maybe that’s due to low expectations, seeing that many put this one towards the bottom of their personal King ratings. Introducing a preternatural pain...

This is definately my least favorite of the King books I've read so far. I simultaniously loved and hated this book. There were no parts that I just liked...seriously I was either loving it or hating it. Clearly since I gave it 3 stars I loved more parts then I hated. First the good stuff. As usua...

Now I remember why I didn't like this the first time I read it. It wears out its welcome a good 60 pages before the end. We get our denouement, and then we're made to wade through a goodly chunk of book before we can call it done. Still, Rose Madder is okay. I think what keeps this book pretty mi...

The 31st book in my long-term Stephen King reading project and the first one I had never read before. Considering common opinion (including King's own) and my friends views, I enjoyed more than I thought I would. However, it's far from without issues. For a long time I had a vague idea about men...

Stephen King once famously proclaimed himself the Big Mac and fries of literature — meaning his works are popular and enjoyable, albeit perhaps lacking in nourishment. I heartily disagree with that assessment, for the most part. Novels such as IT, Dolores Claiborne, and The Dead Zone are intricat...

Great suspense. Wife runs from her abusive husband who is now tracking her. STORY BRIEF: The first 10% is Rose living with Norman. They’ve been married fourteen years. He bites, stabs, and punches her. (Most of this harm is told rather than shown so it’s a little less painful for the reader.) The n...
