Synopsis: Return to the gripping, suspenseful classic #1 New York Times bestseller by master storyteller Stephen King!
Bestselling novelist Paul Sheldon thinks he?s finally free of Misery Chastain. In a controversial career move, he?s just killed off the popular protagonist of his beloved romance series in favor of expanding his creative horizons. But such change doesn?t come without consequences. After a near-fatal car accident in rural Colorado leaves his body broken, Paul finds himself at the mercy of the terrifying rescuer who?s nursing him back to health?his self-proclaimed number one fan, Annie Wilkes. Annie is very upset over what Paul did to Misery, and demands that he find a way to bring her back by writing a new novel?his best yet, and one that?s all for her. After all, Paul has all the time in the world to do so as a prisoner in her isolated house...and Annie has some very persuasive and violent methods to get exactly what she wants ....
Paul Sheldon. He?s a bestselling novelist who has finally met his biggest fan. Her name is Annie Wilkes and she is more than a rabid readeróshe is Paul?s nurse, tending his shattered body after an automobile accident. But she is also his captor, keeping him prisoner in her isolated house.
Now Annie wants Paul to write his greatest workójust for her. She has a lot of ways to spur him on. One is a needle. Another is an ax. And if they don?t work, she can get really nasty.
