A husband and wife are playing a kinky game. Then he has a heart attack and dies- leaving her handcuffed to the bed in a remote cabin in the woods.
This very scary (and very gory) book is also an excellent character study.
This book is more character driven and very psychological, with some moments of nail-biting suspense but a lot of introspection. It is not action packed like many of his books, that's why some people don't like it. But it was horribly creepy and disturbing and he does an excellent job getting inside Jessie's head as she slowly unravels.
This was the Stephen King book that creeped me out the most because it is based on a situation that could happen. The psychological ramblings of a trapped woman is some of King's best works. To this day, just thinking about one of the scenes in that book gives me chills.
This book really chilled me, not because of crazy monsters or scary magic, but because of the reality of the situation! I mean, come on, who hasn't played those games with their honey, next time I will defintatly have the spare key under my pillow! :)
My favorite Stephen King book ever! It is amazing how well he messes with your mind and talks from the point of view of a female. I think, however, him speaking from the dog's vantage point was what really put it over the top for me. It was one sick, twisted mind game and it kept me hooked from the first chapter. Makes you think before you engage in a bit of kinky fun what could happen, even within the confines of marriage. It scared me, repulsed me and yet...I could not put it down! LOVED IT!
OMG!! Awesome!!! This ended kinda strange-but it's SK. I read this one in a day and a half-only because I had to sleep.
