    King likes to demonstrate that he is the pimp grandmaster of using one single setting to show us how it has to be done Including childhood trauma how far one might go to survive married life and how it can develop and switching between the terror of the seemingly hopeless situation and flashbacks to the mystery of what happened when the protagonist was a girl and how those events influenced the current happeningsThe situation of

    I'm revising my previous estimation of this book up one star I'm gonna be a little spoilery Why? The re read was actually rather satisfying Yes it's a novel about survival and all the kinds of crap that men make women do to satisfy themselves but it's also a rather moving novel about keeping or losing one's sanity in th

Gerald's Game

A different kind of bedtime story from Stephen King. I ve re read Gerald s Game several times since its 1992 publication and have just finished listening to it as an audiobook Here s what I know for sure 1 this story has lost none of its power over me despite the fact I know everything that s going to happen uite an impressive feat for a largely plot driven suspense piece 2 it is without uestion one of King s most underrated overlooked novels As of this writing its Goodreads rating is 326 Keeping it company in the basement is the much maligned Tommyknockers incidentally another favorite of mine and From a Buick 8 also 326 but as this is my least favorite King novel I tend to agree with that number3 finally if you aren t already a raving fan of this book I m not going to change your mind That s fair We can t all love the same thing especially when it comes to books What I hope I can do is capture just a smidge like lightning in a bottle the reasons why if you haven t yet you must give this book a chance For a lot of Constant Readers Gerald s Game will always be linked to its sister novel Dolores Claiborne as both books were released the same year and King meant them to be companion novels to one another Their narratives are cleverly linked by a solar eclipse As a literary device it is an interesting one but for me it isn t what makes these novels so special or spectacular In fact you could remove that connection and neither novel would suffer from its absence No what makes each novel memorable is the writing the characterization and most of all King s sheer balls to the wall commitment to the delivery of the story and its outcome As companion novels there are some notable similarities namely the exploration of female abuse at the hands of male aggressors There are painful descriptions of domestic battery and sexual molestation King bravely and uite successfully I would argue enters the terrain of victim humiliation degradation and the lingering psychological effects such acts guarantee In many ways these are King s most feminist novels and I don t think it a coincidence that Gerald s Game is dedicated to his wife Tabitha and her five sistersYet for me this isn t what defines Gerald s Game which I would argue has much in common with Misery King s Bachman novel The Long Walk and his short story Survivor Type I say this because in all of these what King is really doing is looking at the human body under brutalizing physical duress at the body in extremis and what humans are genetically hardwired to do to survive and go on living another day Excruciating physical peril undeniably comes with a psychological component and no one writes that better than King using his own heady and addictive brew of storytelling Jessie Burlingame our damsel in distress is facing certain death She is trapped chained in handcuffs to the bed she shares with her husband Gerald in their summer house on the lake But it s not summer It s fall and the lake is empty Everyone has gone home There is no one to hear her scream or beg for release One of the reasons I love Gerald s Game so much is the solve the puzzle locked room mystery of it It s like one of those brain teasers you know the one about the melted icicle In this case you have one woman handcuffed to a bed How do you get her out of them playing fair no tricks no deus ex machina How will she suffer What demands will be placed on her body on her mind This is where King shines view spoilerOne of my favorite scenes from the entire novel is Jessie s uest for the glass of water resting on the bed s headboard It is agonizing suspense I almost

review Gerald's Game

As a game of seduction between a husband and wife. 5I eually liked and eually disliked this book The story itself was not bad but the particular things didn t work for me This book showed troubled marriage and how the past can affect people I had this problem that I couldn t get attached to the characters and that brought out me of the story a lot It was a uick read but not very fascinating It is horror novel and it at times actually was scary but from my point of view the real horror is making the story feel realistic and things that happen towards the end of the book didn t feel realistic it felt stretched It was interesting read with some shocking twists and points but it wasn t exactly for me or my taste

Ends in death But the nightmare has only just begun. This book and I have a long history When I was 9 or so my mother gave me permission to read books from the adult section of the library She gave me a note to hand to the librarian and all So after summer rec I went into the library and decided I was ready to read some Stephen King My sister read his books and she said they were better than the RL Stine ones I had already gone through all the goosebumps and RL Stine teen books don t know if they are called anything special and was ready to move onto the good stuff Well I didn t know which King book to start out on so I grabbed the one I saw first It was a hard cover a nice thick book with a set of handcuffs on the cover I sauntered up to the counter and handed the librarian my card my book and my permission slip signed by my mother who worked across the street I got checked out and walked the steep hill back to my aunt s house ready to dig into this book on a hot summer afternoonI like to think that the librarian had no idea what the book was about and even with my permission slip would have stopped me HAD she known what it was about though I don t know for sureWhat a surprise I was in for I didn t get very far in before coming across a line mentioning someone s fist being inserted in places I didn t know a whole lot about I looked around the room making sure no one else read the line I just did closed the book and headed back down to the library where I turned the book in explaining to the librarian that I wasn t uite as ready for Stephen King as I thought I wasFast forward to now I decided I had better read this book before it gets completely destroyed in Hollywood I ve had it on my kindle for a while and finally made the decision to read it I was off to a slow start because of the release of Mr Mercedes and then later the release of Four If I had to describe this book in one word it would be brutal It was absolutely one of the most fear inducing books I have ever read It made my skin crawl my heart ache my stomach knot my hands shake I was scared in every way imaginable and my heart broke for Jessie and all that she had been through in her lifeThere were parts of this book that I struggled even to get through The seuence where you learn what happened to her on the day of the eclipse was the most disturbing thing to read The secret that she was so ashamed of the burden that was placed on her at such a young age just hurt my heart As if being handcuffed to a bedpost isn t bad enough Jessie has to see her dead husband and all that his corpse attracts The mind doesn t crack as uickly as we would think it would or in Jessie s case as uickly as she needs it to She wants the sweet escape that insanity would bring her Instead she is forced to recall the worst moments of her life hear voices in her head and see a walking nightmare of a man standing in the corner of the room while she lies there like a piece of meat on display in a case But wait is that a man Or a shadow Is she hallucinating Maybe she s delusional from the lack of food and wateris that a footprint What I can tell you is that this book had me scared beyond comprehension I didn t want to get out of bed in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom I almost envied Jessie s shackles I slept with a flashlight on the nightstand the whole time I read this No that s not a joke I was absolutely terrified Though it took me a long time to finish it and it seemed that I would never finish it I did love this book It s weird though I feel like reading this book was so similar to Jessie being handcuffed to the bed The time seemed to drag on forever and I felt like it would never end as she certainly felt I definitely recommend this book but beware it s a brutal read Might I suggest you read it in broad daylight in a wide open space with lots of people around you Just in case
