I've re-read Gerald's Game several times since its 1992 publication, and have just finished listening to it as an audiobook. Here's what I know for sure:
1) this story has lost none of its power over me, despite the fact I know everything that's going to happen (quite an impressive feat for a lar...

”This wasn’t the smile, though. This was the grin--a version of it he seemed to save just for these sessions. She had an idea that to Gerald, who was on the inside of it, the grin felt wolfish. Piratical, maybe. From her angle, however, lying here with her arms raised above her head and nothing o...

Sometimes it takes heart to write about a thing, doesn't it? To let that thing out of the room way in the back of your mind and put it up there on the screen.
This was, without a doubt, the most fucked up book I've ever read. So of course I loved it.
For some reason, I went into this book thinking...

This book and I have a long history. When I was 9 or so, my mother gave me permission to read books from the “adult section” of the library. She gave me a note to hand to the librarian and all. So, after summer rec, I went into the library and decided I was ready to read some Stephen King. My sis...

This book commences with a solid, voyeuristic 4 star plot.
We move into the middle of the book li...

This book was so hard to finish. However if King had written this book with the whole "space cowboy"-corpse molester-freak angle it would have been sooooo much scarier. I honestly thought Jessie was imagining a man in her home as she was chained up and it turns out a real man was there! If this h...

YIKES! This is one scary, creepy and unsettling book! Also sometimes disturbing, this horror story has many angles and surprises all the way to the unexpected ending. Quite a page-turner.

Der absolute Wahnsinn. Psychologischer Horror vom aller aller feinsten. Anspruchsvoll, poetisch, spannend, grausam... King in Höchstform! 😍😍

If you are into handcuffs and sex you'll love and then immediately hate this book. I guarantee that after reading this book you will never willingly use real handcuffs again. Leave it to King to ruin another favorite pasttime.

Oh my gosh. So good! I bought this book for a quarter--and it was the best darn quarter I ever spent! What would be a pretty boring subject to work with in most writer's hands, is a true page turner in King's. It's full of psychological and physical tension the whole way through (with some majorl...
