The #1 national bestseller about a famous novelist held hostage by his “number one fan” and suffering a frightening case of writer’s block—that could prove fatal. One of “Stephen King’s best…genuinely scary” (USA TODAY).

Paul Sheldon is a bestselling novelist who has finally met his number one 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 furious that the author has killed off her favorite character in his latest book. Annie becomes his captor, keeping him prisoner in her isolated house.

Annie wants Paul to write a book that brings Misery back to life—just for her. She has a lot of ways to spur him on. One is a needle. Another is an axe. And if they don’t work, she can get really nasty.

“Terrifying” (San Francisco Chronicle), “dazzlingly well-written” (The Indianapolis Star), and “truly gripping” (Publishers Weekly), Misery is “classic Stephen King...full of twists and turns and mounting suspense” (The Boston Globe). Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Robert O Mahony | 1/13/2014

    " My second Stephen King book, and it was even better than my first! Constant suspense, I was absolutely addicted! Annie was an insanely creepy character, I loved the way she switched from sickly sweet to absolutely crazy and back again at the drop of a hat. Her little phrases were hilarious ("You bet your rooty-patooties I did" in particular made me laugh uncontrollably.) The movie is fantastic as well! "
