Abstract:

Paul Sheldon can hardly remember the fierce blizzard that sent his car skidding off the road into an almost fatal car crash, or being nursed from unconsciousness. All he can remember is waking up - to the worst nightmare of his life. That's when Paul Sheldon, acclaimed author of the "Misery Chastain" novels met Annie Wilkes, his self-confessed number one fan. Paul suspects a dark side to his good Samaritan, because of her obsession with Misery, but when she asks to read his latest novel, he invites her criticism. It's an invitation he'll live to regret. Misery has been killed off and obsessed Annie becomes enraged. With mounting terror, Paul realizes that he's to be kept a prisoner by his deranged captor until he revives Misery in a new novel. Now, until he is discovered or can somehow escape the enduring love of his greatest fan, author Paul Sheldon must write as if his life depended on it ... because it does!
