★★★★ 4 "I am your #1 fan" Stars ★★★★
♥ ♥ About the Book ♥ ♥
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 reader—she 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 work—just 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.
♥ ♥ Pretty Little Review ♥ ♥
While this is not my favorite Stephen King novel, I did find it utterly terrifying. Can you imagine your life falling into the wrong persons hand like Paul’s did? Ugh, it gives me the absolute CREEPS. I guess this story really teaches us a lesson… Don’t act like a fool by drinking and driving. You don’t know who might be on the other side of the road just waiting to help you. It could be a good Samaritan or a crazy fan who wants to do unimaginable things to you!
Overall this is a great Stephen King classic. It is creepy, imaginative, and utterly terrifying! My favorite thing about this book is how King is able to easily turn a woman into a full blown lunatic- one of the worst female villains of all time! Annie will haunt your dreams. She does some pretty crude things to Paul even though she claims to love him and his novels. She is critical, oh so critical. She is complex; she has a long history of hurt and abuse. And, she is the perfect female psychopath.
If you haven’t read many of Stephen King’s novels I highly suggest starting with this one. It isn’t as long as his other books so it is a fairly easy read. But let me be clear. Just because it is shorter doesn’t mean it isn’t as in depth and scary as his other novels. This one is seriously disturbing and should be read ONLY by those who don’t get easily offended.
