Lisey's Story
Lisey's Story: A Novel | Stephen King
Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a twenty-five-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, bestselling novelist and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and bools. Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went -- a place that both terrified and healed him, that could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live. Now it's Lisey's turn to face Scott's demons, Lisey's turn to go to Boo'ya Moon. What begins as a widow's effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited. Perhaps King's most personal and powerful novel, Lisey's Story is about the wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love.

One of my absolute favorites by King. It was written so well I got sucked right into the story and taken on an emotional rollercoaster ride.

In the past month I have read a total of 4 chapters. There's lots I want to read but I'm just not in much of a reading mood. Has it stopped me from buying? Not when my library has a Christmas in July sale and some titles I couldn't pass up!

5feet.of.fury I feel that. I‘ve been reading, but have only read one physical book all month. 🤨 I think I have bought 19 books (all used except one) this month AND was gifted 1 🤪 3w

Readergrrl Great review! I‘m another huge fan of Stephen King‘s. I started reading King in my very early teens (I‘m now 53) and feel like I‘ve grown up with him. My father ran into him at a bookstore when we lived in Bangor back in the 70s. My dad always said that Stephen King was the nicest guy you could meet. I follow him on social media and I‘m thrilled to learn that we share many attitudes toward many things. Probably because he “helped” raise me! 😝 4w
ErinSueMreads @Readergrrl ah I just saw this! Sorry for the late reply! I love it. That sounds like the worst (best) way to grow up 😂😂😂 2w

BarkingMadRun The first time I read this, I didn‘t finish, and I don‘t remember why! I loved it this time, I basically devoured it! 1mo
ErinSueMreads I liked it better the second time too! I think it was toooooo much for the brain the first time around. I think that one is one of his darkest ones honestly. 1mo
Addison_Reads I liked it the first time and loved it the second. It is different from most other King novels. I feel though for anyone who has gone through childhood trauma, or loved someone who has, there is so much in this book that rings true. Lisey and Scott have a love story that works for them and how deeply they cared for each other can certainly be felt. 1mo
BarkingMadRun @ErinSueMreads definitely very dark! 1mo
ErinSueMreads I totally agree @Addison_Reads there is so much more to unpack there for people with these experiences! 1mo
KathyWheeler The first time I read this, I didn‘t care for it that much — especially some of the violence Lisey experiences. The second time I liked it better. I really like the audio. I hate the way he ends the chapters in the book though, with incomplete sentences that force you into the next chapter. You‘re left with no natural stopping point. 1mo
Addison_Reads @BarkingMadRun @ErinSueMreads Lisey's relationship with her sisters was an interesting part for me. Most of the time male authors miss the boat on female relationships. I felt King did a great job explaining their connection and the love/hate dynamic they struggled with while at the same time never giving up on each other. 1mo
ErinSueMreads @Addison_Reads that's a really good point! I'm watching my mother in law struggle with her sisters right now and it's so messy. I don't have sisters but it's such a complicated relationship to watch. 1mo
BarkingMadRun @KathyWheeler yes! I was reading 20ish pages a day and stopping at chapter ends, but it always left me hanging! It was frustrating 🤣 1mo
Addison_Reads @KathyWheeler The ending of the chapters puzzled me at first but then I guess I got used to it. It made me constantly question if we were in a dream or if it was really happening. 1mo
BarkingMadRun @Addison_Reads yes! He definitely has the family dynamic down! The sisters were great characters! 1mo
Addison_Reads @ErinSueMreads Messy relationships is the perfect description for most of this book! I have a sister, and she struggles with addiction, so perhaps that's why that part hit home for me. 1mo
Bklover I read that he wrote this after having pneumonia in 2003 and imagining what his wife Tabitha‘s life would be like. @Addison_Reads @ErinSueMreads @BarkingMadRun 1mo

So many dislike this book, but now even after finishing my second read I still found myself enjoying it.

It's not like typical King, but I feel there is a lot here that was extremely touching in regards to child abuse and the trauma that never leaves a person who goes through that. And the co-dependent relationship between Lisey and Scott felt real to me because I've seen so many friends and family experience similar relationships.

#LosersClub

Reggie Omg, I think about Scott‘s father all the time because I have a close family member with bipolar disorder who can turn on you at anytime. And I love when couples have their own muthasmucking language. I really liked this one, too. 1mo
Addison_Reads @Reggie so many seem annoyed by the couple language, but I thought it worked really well for their relationship. So glad I'm not the only one who enjoys this unappreciated King novel. 1mo

This was my second read of this book, and I really enjoyed it. It has the King element of being transported into another (paranormal) world in a way that just works, but it also deals with the grief of loss of a loved one, of having to go on without someone you thought you couldn‘t live without.

One thing I could have lived without was the “Scott talk.” The “smucking” thing got old REALLY fast! 🙄 Other than that, an excellent read!

Well, this wasn't as bad as it seemed at first it would be. For a book called "Lisey's Story", there isn't much to the title character besides her husband. Her vocabulary is Scott's vocabulary, everything she does revolves around him, and even after his death, she takes instructions from him. He's this damaged, magical man and there really isn't anything left that's "Lisey." But, maybe that's how that generation of men sees "successful" marriage.

Cathythoughts I think I‘ll watch the Julianne Moore version … although I‘m not sure what they will do with this book 🤔 5mo
ImperfectCJ @Cathythoughts I tend not to like a lot of King adaptations, and this one gets pretty bad reviews. And I don't have Apple TV+ or whatever it is, so it's unlikely I'll catch this one on the screen. 5mo
Clare-Dragonfly Stephen King writes horror, right? Your description sounds like horror to me! 5mo

First King in I don't know how many years. I'm not sure if I'm liking this one (and I hear that torture is on the way, which I don't think is going to make me like it more), but it occupied me while I cleaned the stovetop in preparation for the plumbers arriving this afternoon to fix the kitchen sink (🤞) because for some reason, I like to give people I hire to do repairs the impression that I'm meticulous in my housekeeping.

I listened to Lisey's Story by Stephen King. I knew it was going to be dark, but it was much weirder than I'd expected. It was a long fantasy with other worlds. Not my style, but it might be yours. ⭐⭐

Willing this stuffy summer heat away with some chill by the King.

Would recognize his style in a heartbeat. Despite the crassness and the gore, his characters are always so deep, so real. A master storyteller if there is one.

Two separate evenings I dove in and tried. I simply can‘t wade in enough to lose myself to King magic. It could be there, but I only felt a strain. It didn‘t grab the gentle reader by the hand and pull them in. I still long for his earlier writing that was inescapably compelling and terrifying. Kind of like there was an early period of Bob Dylan that set the stage for future disappointments. Love me some good old King.

FINALLY finished this door stopper! Definitely not my favorite Stephen King. I felt it was waaaayyyy longer than it needed to be and the strange baby-like talk through out got pretty annoying. That being sad the parts dealing with Scott‘s childhood and all the scenes in Boo Ya Moon were terrifying and brilliant (people under sheets staring off into water is just….😳🥺🙈). I also loved the ending which was actually pretty sweet. 🌟🌟🌟

I read this years ago when first published (translation: I‘ve forgotten all of it!) and am listening to the audio for a reread. I‘m a big SK fan, but I‘m only 20% in and already so over the “Scott talk!” The whole “smucking” thing might have been cute if mentioned a couple of times, but on its 47th usage—not so much!! Enough already! 🤦‍♀️ The cover is cool, though. I do have this edition.

Stephen King‘s version of a love story. But being SK, it definitely doesn‘t belong in the romance section. I‘ll be thinking of Lisey and Scott for a while after finishing this. One thing, though, I felt that their special word “smuck/smucking” was overused in this novel 😂.

After 20-yo son reads this, we plan to watch the series…if there‘s time before he goes back to school.

DivineDiana So nice to share a read with your son! Never heard of TV series. 🤔 14mo
ValerieAndBooks @DivineDiana it‘s currently on Apple+ TV, releasing a new episode weekly. Not sure how many episodes total. By the time son‘s done reading, I‘m sure they‘ll all be there! 14mo

Stephen King‘s version of a love story? Yes please! I really enjoyed this one. I acquired an older copy last year and decided to tackle it in case I decide to watch the Apple TV adaptation. I stayed up a little past the pupper‘s bedtime to finish it up.

BookingitwithSandra I went off SK for decades because i scared myself as a little kid reading Cujo and PET Semetary! Lisey‘s Story is the first book i went to to get back into the SK reads. I‘m glad I did. It was so different and yet, so Stephen King. Glad you like it too! 14mo
Cortg @Lifeisasnap I honestly haven‘t read many SK books. My first was 11/22/63 and since then I‘ve read The Shining, 1/2 of the Dark Towers series, Gwendy‘s Button Box and The Institute. There are quite a few more I‘d like to read and some that I‘ll pass on because, quite frankly, I‘m afraid. 14mo
BookingitwithSandra @Cortg i loved 11/22/63! Did you see the Tv series of it starring James Franco? Yeah, a lot of his books are scary!! 14mo

Because of the new series based on this book, son (he‘s 20) & I decided to buddy read this! (Last summer we buddy-read The Stand).

Any of you doing the same? We want to finish before we start watching.

although son has several SKs, he didn‘t have this one, so I ordered from ThriftBooks because he prefers HC editions. When the order went through, it said “large print edition “. I was like, oh no! But it ended up actually being regular print.

vivastory I've heard great things about this book. I'll be curious to hear your opinion 1y

A so so start for me but built and built to a powerhouse ending.... So much heart in this 💖💖

Cathythoughts I liked this one too. Very compelling ... & there was that dreamlike place Boo y moon. Loved this one. Even though parts were more than awful & ugly. 4y
Balibee146 @Cathythoughts totally and I loved the ideas and life philosophy that underpins the writing...... I suspect Friends who get to spend nights chatting with the Kings are very lucky.... I imagine they would be great company for long and winding conversations 👍 4y
Reggie This was so mothersmucking good. 4y

Atypical love story/horror/fantasy/thriller. This was a bit different but I enjoyed it very much in the end, despite feeling unusually annoyed at King‘s writing in spots. I love the post-script (above). ❤️

The library stole my book back too soon!! 😱😱😱 how does the time go so quick on digital holds though??? In a stroke of luck though I got my Libro.fm to work finally and #bookbar is on there! Found Lisey‘s story and kept on moving. This book is creeping into my head. Huzzah!

Seekingtardis I have no idea what this is!! Would you mind explaining? I‘m always looking for audiobook formats. 4y
ErinSueMreads Absolutely! It‘s like audible but better! It costs the same as audible each month (15) for one credit. You get to pick an audiobook to “buy” with your credit. This is where it gets good though. A portion of the money goes to the bookstore you designate rather than amazon. More goes back to the authors as well. There are loads of perks. Here is a referral code if you want to try it! http://libro.fm/referral?rf_code=lfm85681 @Seekingtardis 4y
ErinSueMreads Plus you get to keep all the books you get with credits even if you cancel and the rest of the books are steeply discounted. The first month is free! @Seekingtardis 4y

ErinSueMreads Yes reread with me you monster 😘 duma key next @WhiskeyMistress 4y
WhiskeyMistress I‘ll check it out, the library has it in large print... LOL since mine got stolen 4y
RadicalReader @ErinSueG absolutely love when books grip you until the end especially when they‘re books that you need the strength of an alligator to remove yourself from Crikey they have a death grip! (edited) 4y
ladyneverwhere Lisey's story is such a good book! I read it a few years ago and still recommend it to people all the time. 4y

Maggy.reads I love Salem's Lot and Misery too 4y
ptkpepe98 💗💗💗 4y
ErinSueMreads @Maggy.reads oh I am going to try to get @WhiskeyMistress to make misery the next assigned king reading we do! 4y
AsYouWish @ErinSueG I am currently reading 4y
Karkar The Stand is my favorite. This one had one word that was repeated too many times for me. 4y
ErinSueMreads @Karkar I already agree with that and I know exactly which word 😂 4y
Slajaunie the Stand 4y
JessClark78 I think I would say It was my favorite, since it was my first Stephen King book. There are so many good ones. I loved Lisey‘s Story. 4y
SqueakyChu I loved Duma Key. I felt that the main character was Stephen King himself. 4y
thereadingowlvina @ErinSueG I'm about to start Chapter 4 😮 4y
WhiskeyMistress Like I can pick a favorite... 🙄😂😂😂 4y
ErinSueMreads @WhiskeyMistress it‘s true. I forgot we were doing duma key. Then after that we must do misery 4y
Victoriahoperose I love Carrie. But, more recently I loved 11/22/63 also! 4y
ErinSueMreads @Victoriahoperose oh I loveeeeee 11/22/63!!! Excellent choice! 4y
dragondrool It. Bag of Bones, Pet Sematary, and Misery are right up there as well. I also have a soft spot for Cujo. 4y
ErinSueMreads @dragondrool I think Cujo is probably the one I will never read. Hellhounds. Blech 4y
KathyWheeler The Stand, Salem‘s Lot, Doctor Sleep, 11/22/63, Duma Key, The Dead Zone, the Mr. Mercedes trilogy, and The Dark Tower series are my favorites. 4y
amb It's always been The Stand but I read so many of them in my pre-teens/early teens that I feel like I have to go back with new eyes 👀 4y
CSeydel Lisey‘s Story was so weird and good. I haven‘t read a ton of his, but I read It this year and loved it. 4y
CSeydel Misery is one of my favorites too 4y

Interesting for sure, but not my favorite King novel.

I‘m slowly working my way through Lisey‘s Story, but I‘m already thinking about what I‘ll read next. I‘m trying to work my way through my TBR, but I also want to reread Crooked Kingdom (for the third time). So, between Crooked Kingdom, You, and Jellicoe Road, what should I read next?

I took a trip to England and Scotland and went into a bookstore at every stop I made. I miss living in London, and this trip only confirmed my desire to attend an MFA program in Scotland.
