    Default Gerald's Game

    Just finished this book a few weeks ago. I bought it when it first came out in March of 92(?) and it just got shuffled. (sorry Mr. King). I thought this book was amazing. The psychological aspect was truely amazing. I could definitely feel the fear and desperation. What do you think?

    Hi,

    I must admit I was disappointed when I first read it (was it really 92?, sigh), but I've been meaning to re-read it soon.

    Long days and pleasant nights

    This was the first SK book I ever read. I read it somehwere around '94 (guessing). Well, apparently I liked it enough to keep on reading cause here I am!

    I enjoyed this book very much.

    The part where she's laying there and suddenly a man is looking at her
    . It REALLY scared me. I know a lot of people don't like it, but I thought it was great, and it really delivered.

    Was Gerald's Game a movie ? It should be. The book was great.

    It hasn't been adapted yet. Steve has had some proposals over the years but decided not to sell the rights after he heard what they wanted to do with it.

    I'd just finished The Stand, again, and ripped through this one. I really enjoyed it, and after The Stand it was kind of like "summer school"! Immediately following, I read Insomnia. Another one, that is IMO, grossly underrated!

    I agree, it is one of the most scarying scenes, I pictured everything and shuddered with fear! The details of the scenes are so deep, it makes you think with the character's mind.

    I loved this book, very bloody.

    I guess her husband got what he deserved, a dog eating him?
    Very SK.
