The #1 New York Times bestseller about a famous novelist held hostage in a remote location by his "number one fan." One of "Stephen King's best...genuinely scary" (USA TODAY).Bestselling novelist Paul Sheldon thinks he's finally free of Misery Chastain.

After a near-fatal car accident in rural Colorado leaves his body broken, Paul finds himself at the mercy of the terrifying rescuer who's nursing him back to health—his self-proclaimed number one fan, Annie Wilkes. Annie is very upset over what Paul did to Misery, and demands that he find a way to bring her back by writing a new novel—his best yet, and one that's all for her. After all, Paul has all the time in the world to do so as a prisoner in her isolated house...and Annie has some very persuasive and violent methods to get what she wants... "Kind at his best...a winner!" —The New York Times "Unadulteratedly terrifying...frightening." —Publishers Weekly "Classic King...full of twists and turns and mounting suspense." —The Boston Globe
