    "This is one of my favorite books with a disturbing plot. The hobbling scene where Annie hobbles Paul has stayed with me ever since I read it over a decade ago. Disturbing, but fun!"

    "I absolutely love Stephen King so obviously purchasing this book was on my to-do list. It was definitely on the scary side but yet it was good enough to keep me intrigued. So if you are into horror like I am, I would definitely recommend this book."

    "One of the scariest book i have ever read. If you are familiar with Stephen Kings work you know exactly what you are buying and reading. If you collect his books or have to read all his titles then this is one that you cant pass up or miss. It will have you on the edge of your seats the entire time and throughout every chapter. "

    "This is a good book to read for anyone wanting to be scared. I read it and thought it was not only frightening in parts but also very thought provoking as well. It's a good buy and a good read for avid readers and fans of Stephen King."

    "I normally don't read the crime drama, but Misery had me from the start. The crazed fan Annie is upset that the author, Paul killed her favorite character and systematically tortures him. I could not put the book down and couldn't sleep after reading even though I don't have any crazed fans!"

    "Stephen King is the "King" no pun intended of mystery/horror for me. Misery is a book that you can't put down. My first book by King I read was "It" and I thought, wow...this book is huge, I will never get through it! I did, at the age of 15, he is the best kind of macabre, realistic, twisted reading you can find out there. You will enjoy this book, promise! The movie is pretty likable too if you want to see it."

    "This book was incredible to read. It was intense and dramatic and held up better than most crime books I have read before. I enjoyed buying it for a cheaper price and reading it on my kindle."

    "For my 30th birthday last year my mother got me this book that was written of the year I was born. I've always been a fan of Stephen King. I had seen the movie prior which was amazing but I had not read the book misery yet. I'm very glad I decided to read the book as it's another King Classic. Such a dark thrilling tale that King weaves so beautifully with words. "

    "Ohhh, the terror! Being trapped with a maniac and hobbled so you cannot escape. What a terrifying book. This is one of the best books ever! The suspense and gripping scenes keep you turning page after page."

    "Misery is one of my favorite books AND movies of all time. It is extremely suspenseful in a way that only Stephen King can deliver. In the movie, Kathy Bates will send shivers down your spine with her realistic, messed up ways."
    Nicolás Anaya
    Written on October 11, 2017
    "One of the worst Stephen King books I have ever read. Its not well written in my opinion and lacks the depth and character development that King usually has in his novels. "

    "I almost regret seeing the film Misery before reading this book, but both are stunning and impactful in their own ways. I was frequently frightened reading the book, which was a surprise to me since I knew the story. A great read and a true classic of the thriller genre."

    "Misery is one of my all-time favorite Stephen King books so when my search for the best books with mentally ill characters turned up with this as a suggestion I was pleased. I would happily read this page-turner again and the price points are great with several different purchase options. This is a great book and a creepy read with a look at the mentally ill woman featured in the book."

    "Oh Misery, you faithful classic. Even if you haven't read the book or seen the movie, you probably know what its about. You might have even fantasized about recreating that one scene. To your boss, perhaps? Or to your ex (ladies, I'm looking at you.) While I'm not sure I'd say the main character is a killer, this is a great book, and one you should read."
