Gerald's Game
Gerald's Game | Stephen King
When a game of seduction between a husband and wife ends in death, the nightmare has only just begun in this sinister twist on a bedtime storya #1 national bestseller and one of Stephen Kings best (USA TODAY).Gerald and Jessie Burlingame have gone to their summer home on a warm weekday in October for a romantic getaway. After being handcuffed to her bedposts, Jessie tires of her husband's games, but when Gerald refuses to stop, the evening ends with deadly consequences. Still handcuffed, Jessie is trapped and alone. Over the next twenty-eight hours, in the lakeside house that has become a prison, Jessie will come face-to-face with all the things she has ever feared. Her only company is a hungry, stray dog and the various voices that fill her mind. As night comes, she is unsure whether it is her imagination or if she has another companion: someone watching her from the corner of her dark bedroom. A master of his craft, Stephen Kings novels haunt in many different ways. Geralds Game kept us up half the night, we couldnt put it down (Newsweek).

It‘s been years since I‘ve read this one, and I‘ve been mentally preparing myself for the degloving scene... but I forgot that before that, Jessie wants to cut herself to lubricate herself out of the handcuffs.

I‘m not sure I can read that. Any description or enactment of self-harm in this vein (no pun intended) causes a visceral reaction in me. I‘m talking grayed vision, flushed skin, could faint if I continue.

dariazeoli I should just put this book in the freezer a la Joey Tribbiani. (edited) 8mo
MySharonaK @dariazeoli yes this book belongs in the freezer ! For quite a few bits that keep coming back to me even though it‘s been years. I also really related as I‘m also feeling awful when reading stuff like that, feeling weak and queasy and like I can‘t stand or I‘ll faint 8mo
dariazeoli @MySharonaK I‘m glad and sorry that you can relate 😆 I considered DNFing, but I quickly skimmed the queasy scene and I‘m now closing in on the finish line. But I think it‘ll be awhile before another reread of this one! 8mo
MySharonaK @dariazeoli completely understood! Also - stirring clear of the film of course ! 8mo

Trying to get one Stephen King in a month. Not sure I can pull it off all year though. What are his best books?

RvnclawWhovian I feel like a broken record lol but if you haven‘t read 11/22/63, you must ASAP. It‘s a bit of a chunker but I ended up wishing it would never end 3y
C.Perone I agree with @RvnclawWhovian 11/22/63 was really good. I also loved Tommyknockers, The Outsider, The Dark Tower series, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams to name a few 3y
amberdfoy Ok thanks! I‘ve read The Outsider and the Bill Hodges trilogy. I recently got The Shining just because I want to read the one about the son. I haven‘t read Stephen King in 10+ years so I‘ve only read the really popular, not so long ones when I was a teenager. 3y

I wanted to read this because it is loosely tied to Dolores Claiborne. Jessie and her husband head to a secluded cabin for adult fun. Things don‘t go as planned and Jessie ends up handcuffed to the bed and alone. Her time is spent between flashbacks and conversations with the voices in her head. Her determination and will are remarkable. Her situation is terrifying. This one has plenty of triggers.

Prairiegirl_reading I remember this book from when it first came out. I couldn‘t put it down. I kept thinking how is a story about a woman handcuffed to a bed so compelling!!?? 3y
Victoriahoperose I watched this movie without knowing anything about it and it still gives me nightmares 3y

The last quarter of the book may seem a bit thin and shaky, but it's effectively buoyed by this survival story's simple and isolating suspense, intimate point of view, and love for its central star character.

arubabookwoman The Thief of Always does not appeal to me. The other three sound good to me—maybe a slight edge to Rabbit Cake. Of course I will read whichever you choose. Looking forward to this adventure. 3y

Decided to listen on Audible today as I worked on projects. Thought I picked a no-brainer. Hooked right away but ... is it bad to say the beloved Stephen King could have MAYBE made this a bit shorter? Over 5 hours in & over 8 more to go. Not much of a build up so far for me but with all of the #metoo & post #50shades I expected something >unique. I know. I am evil & certainly no Mr. King. Will press on but I must really be jaded.

Should've listened Gerald...
A buried childhood trauma resurfaces when Jessie finds herself cuffed, and she fights back, repulsed.
The quote is from Mike Flanagan's terrific adaptation, but it encompasses pages of backstory in a single line.
Carla Gugino's performance was absolutely stellar.

rohit-sawant @batsy @Cinfhen It gets both real & unreal very quickly! It's perhaps SK's most feminist novel. He's paced it so brilliantly, switching between the present & flashbacks, which basically function as enforced-survival-oriented therapy & further the story. Hope you check it out! It's thoughtful, suspenseful, & of course, scary, in more than one way, but ultimately optimistic. Sorry, I can't help but put on my salesman hat whenever I talk about it 😆 4y

A lot of #nasty in this novel. I also marked it down for another prompt for #FierceFeb. A nasty game leads to a nasty end for Gerald, leaving Jessie in a nasty situation... and in company of a nasty visitor. But she works her way through the trauma and badasses her way through it all. One of my favorite female characters in not just SK's works but overall.

When your main & really only character is handcuffed to the bed for most of the novel, with only a mangy stray dog, the voices in her head, & the ominous Space Cowboy lurking in the corner as her only companions, strong characterization is needed. Jessie was a great character, with a fully fleshed out backstory, & I was captivated by her struggle to survive.The audiobook had creepy music that I was not expecting but added to the atmosphere.

This was one of those horror stories that was like a train wreck you just can‘t pry your eyes away from, and I mean that in a good way. First off early on A LOT is happening that leaves you wondering with so much left in the book how much more can realistically happen, but that‘s where the magic (at least for me) truly begins in this book. I admit to finding the final twist/conclusion a tad bit unnecessary albeit a nice hat tip to Ed Gein 👍🏼
