Irony

Discussion in 'Misery' started by Malachi Holden, Mar 1, 2015.

  1. I really liked the irony thrown into this book, by which I mean all the mentions of Paul Sheldon living in real life, and not a book. He keeps telling himself, 'Things aren't that convenient in real life, I need to come up with a real life solution to this, not just depend on the parachute under the chair'. It's ironic because he is in a book, but Stephen King manages to create a realistic turn of events. Everything that happens comes out is from decisions that characters make, not convenient coincidences.

    Oh . . . a lot of writers do that.

    Lawrence Block does it all the time: "If this were a story there would be a convenient butler . . . "
