An author by the name of Paul Sheldon ends up having a terrible car accident on the highway. He awakes to find himself in a bed that is not his own, nor a hospital bed. Instead, an ex-nurse named Annie Wilkes is standing over him, telling him she is his number one fan.
But he later finds out it isn't fortunate to have been found by her. Enraged that Paul killed his main character in his series "Misery", she insists that he write a book, just for her, of the character coming back alive.
But while struggling to write the book, he finds out more about Annie and why she is no longer a nurse as she physically keeps him from leaving the house in a torturing way.

Probably one of the greatest thrillers ever written, "Misery" captures the reader from the very beginning. I'm sure everyone has seen the movie, but the book brings you so much more. You get to read the book that Annie is forcing Paul to write, "Misery's Return" throughout. The book within a book concept is brilliant! Up until the explosive ending, you find yourself cheering for Paul and fearing Annie. If you haven't read this one yet, you need to.
