Publisher's Summary

The number-one national best seller about a woman who escapes an abusive marriage is "one of Stephen King's most engrossing horror novels. Relentlessly paced and brilliantly orchestrated...fueled by an air of danger immediate and overwhelming" (Publishers Weekly).
Rosie Daniels leaves her husband, Norman, after 14 years in an abusive marriage. She is determined to lose herself in a place where he won't find her. She'll worry about all the rest later.
Alone in a strange city, she begins to make a new life, and good things finally start to happen. Meeting Bill is one, and getting an apartment is another. Still, it's hard for Rosie not to keep looking over her shoulder, and with good reason. Norman is a cop, with the instincts of a predator. He's very good at finding people, even if he is losing his mind.
Fixed on revenge, Norman Daniels becomes a force of relentless terror and savageness, a man almost mythic in his monstrosity. For Rosie to survive, she must enter her own myth and become a woman she never knew she could be: Rose Madder.
"Riveting, engrossing...packed with suspense" (People), Stephen King infuses this novel with an edge-of-your-seat, chilling atmosphere. Rose Madder is "an eerie, remarkably mature and moving novel" (The Washington Post).

Completely brought me in

From Page 1, he brought me into the story. Having experienced some of the things that the main character had, with domestic violence, the book was riveting and emotional for me. Sometimes it was difficult. I was ALL in. Fantastic!!!

Excellent!

If you like King you will probably find much to enjoy with this one. My only complaint is really just a quibble. This recording has bumper music to separate various sections of the book. The music is at times very creepy which is very cool. Occasionally the music is too loud as it plays over the narration. Any overall very enjoyable.
