Misery - Stephen King Another one that wasn't at all what I was expecting! I don't think I've ever seen the whole movie, but I've seen enough that I was completely shocked at how much more gruesome and frightening the book was. I couldn't stop reading it. Excellently paced and not at all dull despite the lack of characters. Terrifyingly believable.This is exactly why I try to tone down my fan-girl self...I don't want anyone to think I'm an Annie Wilkes. Seriously.
