Listener Opinions

    " My absolute favorite King novel, and by far one of his most underrated. Brilliant and mad tale of a woman's survival from her monstrous husband, and marked the shift in King's conciousness from the splatter-genre horror to the more psycological terror. Amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathan Daniels | 2/4/2014

    " One of his best. Definitely his best female portrayal. Thanks to my friend Natalie ; I recently found out a movie is being made... awesome! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Che | 2/2/2014

    " Once in a while Stephen King gets so caught up in telling you how nice his characters are that by the time one of them is getting smashed in the face with a hammer, he forgets that you're trying to read about how the teeth shattered and just keeps on telling you how nice his/her smile was before hand (I mean hammer). On top of that, he's so into the feminist thing here (which he handled so well in the previouse twin novels Gareld's Game and Delores Clayborn) that he may have simply answered the reader's question 'why' with 'Y' in spelling the word womyn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Thompson | 1/13/2014

    " I've been reading SK for several years, catching up on all the work he's written that I was too young to read. At the conclusion of this book, I assumed this had to have been one of his earlier books, when he was still on drugs, but it published in 1995 which is after he got clean, I believe...anyway...parts of it seemed a little coke fueled. Sorry--they just did. But the title character I loved. He wrote her beautifully and realistically, doing justice to abused women everywhere. Good book. Probably not a re-read, but good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jailan El-Rafie | 1/8/2014

    " I pretty much loved this book; however, I disliked the complications at the last couple of papers. Not a big deal, anyway. I think King did a great job on this one. Spectacular as always. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynne | 1/7/2014

    " One of my all time Stephen king books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne Gilbert | 12/29/2013

    " I loved how he brought up characters from other books in this one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lewis Pritchard | 11/30/2013

    " good but the ending is too far-fetched so ruins it a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corrie | 11/19/2013

    " Another great read by Stephen King. This one starts pretty gruesome, but by far did this book was more suspenseful and less bloody than some of his others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Naomi | 11/3/2013

    " this was an awesome book! stephan king is the best! "

    " My favorite of all time "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amel Armeliana | 6/4/2013

    " Just as expected. Stephen King is a number 1 in mystery/horror book. Love this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria talarico | 5/28/2013

    " l loved it.....Definately a MUST READ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 AmbushPredator | 3/15/2013

    " King thinks this isn't one of his best, but on re-reading it after 10 years have passed, I have to disagree. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudette | 1/11/2013

    " OMG!So riveting and well-written, I was on edge throughout every page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Latoya | 1/5/2013

    " Stephen King is soooo amazing! I mean, it's so cool how he creates his characters and plot. Norman is a total psycho-sicko lol. The entire book was like enigmatic, and I loved it. The ending was beautiful, and...wow, I just really liked it, and it was one of the best reads I've had in a while. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David Logan | 10/10/2012

    " Excellent opening. The rest is rubbish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 10/1/2012

    " Not my favorite from Stephen King but interesting none the less. King's style is so good that you keep reading even if you don't really like it. I'm not sure how he does that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelly | 7/22/2012

    " I usually don't read Stephen King, he just gets too-weird for me. My sister said I would enjoy this book and I really did-until he went out in left field and lost me in about the middle of the book. Overall, it was a good story, I just don't like when he gets me lost by going all weird on me "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha Stephens | 7/1/2012

    " I love this book, talk about revenge. I am inspired by this lady. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy Ramsay | 6/7/2012

    " My favorite SK book. A MUST read if you have ever been the victim of domestic violence... I love Rose <3 "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Magic | 4/24/2012

    " Seems like a combinationed of Duma Key and Gerald's Game "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brent Watson | 12/8/2011

    " I expected something different. Maybe my fault that I didn't like it. :-( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Indigo.plume | 8/2/2011

    " This book was touching in a very odd way. I admire the main character for finally getting the gumption to leave her psycho husband. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bobby | 6/19/2011

    " I thought this was one of King's more unique tries at mixed genre horror; I think he pulls it off pretty well -- along with focusing on a protagonist that is a woman. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kitty | 5/25/2011

    " Not his best, but not time totally wasted. Nominally about domestic abuse and King doesn't flinch from descriptions. It was fairly predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla | 5/9/2011

    " mind of an abuser and an abused women with some weird goddess alter reality stuff too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 5/2/2011

    " I literally read this book in one day. It was impossible to put down. Strange ending... but it's King... what else is to be expected? :D "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steve | 4/16/2011

    " Readable until King starts in with a painting that has magical powers. I've got to stop reading crap like this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/11/2011

    " One of my favorite King books of all time. I'm not even sure why, but I just love it! Fantastic story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryan | 3/29/2011

    " I thought this was a very good Stephen King book. It was similar to Lisey's Story in some respects but I was captured right away by the characters. This is a really good story about an abused wife and her insane husband, with a twist of supernatural! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 3/19/2011

    " Thought is quite good. Couldn't work out the ending though. "
