    Lol wow this book is wild. Annie is straight up evil!

    I was practically cheering when Paul Sheldon got her back at the end of the story

    I cheer a lot when reading sK books.

    Annie is a hoot. Her imagination is willing to suspend disbelief but only if she thinks she's getting a fair shake. I think she was unappreciative of Yeats. Or maybe it was Coleridge, ancient mariner, that Laughing Place hanging around her neck.

    She really deserved the Oscar - oops - we are talking about the book, not the movie!
    Oh well, here is a picture anyway
    The book was simply excellent!

    She is like an abusive husband who beats up his wife and then blames her :facepalm:

    Ive picked Misery off my bookshelf at least a dozen times but I think I'm finally going to get around to reading it this time. Ive just finished 'salems Lot and was wondering where I should go next. A crazy number 1 fan's house seems about right eh?

    It is a great book - give it a try (have you seen the movie?) - the movie is pretty good, too!

    Yeah I watched the movie years ago and remember Kathy Bates being pretty scary!

    Great book, great movie.

    One of my favorite King stuffs.

    Annie Wilkes is, according to me, the scariest of Kings fully human bad boys. Or gals.

    What makes her so scary is she could be a real person. And how calm she pretends to be one moment and then lets loose her wild craziness.
    I loved when Paul killed this dirty birdy.

    One of my favorites and the audiobook is amazing. Lindsay Crouse is a great narrator and a better Annie than Kathy Bates... IMO

    Fantastic book. Was in grade ten when I read it - skipped several classes and hid out in the library to read it. Good learning!!

    This was perhaps the best SK novel ever, my alltime favorite book. I've read it so many times I know it like the back of my hand
