Stephen Kings novel Misery is involving exciting intense highly suspenseful and definitely gruesome Misery was full of unexpected and atypical imagery involving such items as axes saws land mowers crosses and other gardening utensils that were used to sear human flesh Although I have been desensitized to this kind of violence by spending my youth in front of Pay-Per-View television I still found the grizzly amputations and lacerations unnerving Although the novel can be a turnoff for those with weak stomachs for its portrayal of senseless violence I found the elements of surprise and excitement to be the most appealing aspects I especially enjoyed the ending of Misery which provided a thrilling climax when Paul and Annie had their final confrontation ending in the defeat of evil Not everything about Misery was to my liking For example I did not enjoy the novel within a novel facet of the book I found this distraction unnecessary and not overly useful in adding value and proved to not be constructive in furthering the main storyline Although the chance coincidence of a number-one fan finding her idol glues this story together it is not entirely believable Furthermore I believe that some aspects of provoking disgust were taken too far as is the case when Paul Sheldon is forced to drink his own urine My final complaint is the insufficient detail of Annies laughing place Descriptive aspects were omitted leaving more to be desired Many books I read are far less interesting than Misery allowing me to place this book in the top echelon of books Ive read that I consider being enjoyable I have seen several of Stephen Kings movies such as Pet cemetery The Shinning Shawshank Redemption and The Storm of the Century Most of his work is dark which comes through in Misery as well Stephen Kings themes typically deal with the supernatural and struggles between good and evil Misery is not Stephen Kings best work
