Publisher's Summary

Misery Chastain was dead. Paul Sheldon had just killed her - with relief, with joy. Misery had made him rich; she was the heroine of a string of best sellers. And now he wanted to get on to some real writing.
That's when the car accident happened, and he woke up in pain in a strange bed. But it wasn't the hospital.
Annie Wilkes had pulled him from the wreck, brought him to her remote mountain home, splinted and set his mangled legs. The good news was that Annie was a nurse and had painkilling drugs. The bad news was that she was Paul's Number One Fan. And when she found out what Paul had done to Misery, she didn't like it. She didn't like it at all. And now he had to bring Misery back to life. Or else....

Creepy, atmospheric, chilling, awesome.

I've been listening to this audiobook on cassette for a VERY long time. It's my favourite. The writing is simply excellent. Lindsay Crouse is FANTASTIC as the narrator, really bringing to life Annie's psychosis, while giving Paul a meek yet determined voice. I cannot recommend this book enough, to classic King fans, book fans, horror fans, psychological drama fans etc. Finally having this digitally is a total blessing as my cassette is more than worn out after all these years.

Final though - GET IT.

favourite author with excellent narration

a great King story, (so much better than the film), with excellent gripping narration, i usually take a while to adjust to the narrators style but this was so natural and a perfect fit to the story that it took no adjustment at all- one of the best so far. Character voices were consistent, great sound quality, and there were no obvious breaks and no speech quirks to notice. sometimes, in other stories, i got the impression the narrator had been in a different mood on different days of recording, but here the reading was as though it had been done all in one. I usually prefer longer stories, so this ended sooner than i would have liked, but thats because I miss the characters when the book ends- the length suits the story perfectly. Highly recommended.
