Related to R3 I'm Bette Midler's assertion she was a fool to turn Misery down as the role "won an Oscar"

Have any of you read the book? i did when it was first published. It scared me, repeatedly. Annie chopping off Paul's ankle, Annie, sawing off Paul's thumb with an electric knife, Paul's paranoid fantasy at the end that Annie is waiting for him in his NYC apartment. the novel is really very, very good.

by Anonymousreply 49March 25, 2023 12:05 AM

R49 Yes, the novel is excellent. The film is a solid adaptation, but a lot of Paul’s inner monologue and the fascinating writing details simply couldn’t be carried over.
