Publisher's Summary

A game. A husband and wife game. Gerald's Game. But this time Jesse didn't want to play.

Lying there, spread-eagled and handcuffed to the bedstead while he'd loomed and drooled over her, she'd felt angry and humiliated. So she'd kicked out hard. Aimed to hit him where it hurt. He wasn't meant to die, leaving Jesse alone and helpless in a lakeside holiday cabin.

Miles from anywhere. No one to hear her screams. Alone. Except for the voices in her head that had begun to chatter and argue and sneer....

    "Wasn't sure why there was music playing at odd tim"

    I wasn't sure why there was music playing at odd intervals throughout... It made me snaps out of the story but it was a good performance and awesome story

    Story
    "C Tier King."

    While I adore King and his works it's difficult to say that all of his work is worth reading. That's probably true for about 95% of his work, and while I don't regret reading this one, I can't see myself ever reading it again. The narrator is good, but not brilliant as she was with Misery (not her fault at all) and the use of music in audiobooks is an art that is still far from being perfected and this is a glaring case. Is the music supposed to signal the change of chapters? Perspectives? I have no idea!

    With all that said the last hour and a half scared me enough to almost tears, and that is the saving grace for me. A novel which you would expect to play out similar to "127 Hours" falls flat of that expectation and is instead a very, I repeat VERY, uncomfortable story about child abuse and coming to terms with it. King is often criticised for THAT scene in It, but I'd argue a scene in this novel trumps it massively, and succeeded where most other books haven't in making me want to stop reading all together.

    Story
    "Very creepy"
    What made the experience of listening to Gerald's Game the most enjoyable?

    Typical Stephen King, deep and intense.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is long, so be prepared, but stick with it, it gets more awful in the best possible way.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The heroine getting out of the handcuffs was pretty desperate and there was a long and strong lead up.


    Any additional comments?

    Love Stephen King, but this one is long haul.

    "Wow! Powerful Storytelling"

    I am constantly impressed with Stephen King's masterful storytelling.

    This book is damn well written.

    King has the ability to paint vivid pictures in my imagination. There were moments of fear and terror throughout this story.

    Also some moments of stomach-churning disgust. Dammit, this author is so frikkin' good!

    Story
    "Not the best SK ever"

    So I'm a certified Stephen King junkie - I thought 11-22-63 was an awesome book, I enjoyed the weird but interesting books about the Man in Black, I loved the Stand, Green Mile, Pet Cemetary, Mercedes Killer etc. But this was a rather less fulfilling read with a very odd ending tacked on to an interesting idea. Well read; and it kept me going to the end: but make sure you read his great books first!
