You've already taken most of the skin off your right hand-do youthink a few more lacerations are going to make a difference? Gerald and Jessie Burlingame have gone to their summer home on a warm weekday in October for a romantic interlude.

Keeping it company in the basement is the much maligned Tommyknockers (incidentally another favorite of mine) and From a Buick 8 (also 3.26 but as this is my least favorite King novel I tend to agree with that number).3) finally, if you aren't already a raving fan of this book I'm not going to change your mind. Her right now seemed capable of very little except bleeding and howling with pain. Gerald still refused to stop after she makes this known to him. Suzanne wrote: "I have this! I just wasn’t a fan of this.

Jessie had no idea how much good such a makeshift tourniquet could do, but she didn't think it could do any harm. And still hungry. Except that wasn't exactly the right word. “Listening to it was like having a mud-slimed piece of silk drawn lightly back and forth across her face.” Everything seemed surreal now. Because that thing is going to come back. Two careful steps took her back to the bathroom doorway. Blind, rocking back and forth on her feet, she thought: Please,God, don't let me pass out. Please. She couldn't-simply could not. ― Stephen King, Gerald’s Game, “Some nightmares never completely ended.” Gravity would take care of the rest. Besides, it's easy enough tofind out, isn't it? Yes, except it wasn't the chair, and it wasn't the idea of the Rescue Services guys finding her in the same room as the naked, chewed corpse of her husband. Gerald and Jessie Burlingame have gone to their summer home on a warm weekday in October for a romantic getaway. The jack might just be bound up on the chair, but-. When Jessie thought things had gotten as bright as they were going to, she slowly crossed the room to the telephone table, holding her left arm a few inches out from her body to maintain her balance.

Of course it was. She pushed the cover of the adhesive tape and held the roll clumsily with her right hand while she used her left thumb to lift up the end of the tape. Your teview has given me food for thought ;))"Boy! Getmoving,bitch! She thought she felt a little give at first, and then nothing. She took it down with her left hand and used her teeth to pry off the white plastic top. —Traci, I've re-read Gerald's Game several times since its 1992 publication, and have just finished listening to it as an audiobook. Christ, that chair can'tweigh fifty pounds...I'm almost home and dry! If you made that worse-Goody began dolefully. It's like one of those brain teasers (you know the one about the melted icicle?)

She didn't think she would have been able to bear sliding her stripped right hand down a long sleeve. Now alone and incapacitated, her mind wanders. :-) Grabbed this b/c of the attention it’s been getting on Netflix. Stephen King is the author of more than sixty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. She tore the tape a second time, and as she dropped the much diminished roll back onto the counter, she saw a green bottle of Excedrin standing on the middle shelf of the medicine cabinet. If you continue to use this site we will assume that you are happy with it. ― Stephen King, Gerald’s Game, “Even if things go all wrong they’ll work out just fine.” In fact, you could remove that connection and neither novel would suffer from its absence. Sheer mastery of the craft I tell you. When a game of seduction between a husband and wife ends in death, the nightmare has only just begun in this sinister twist on a bedtime story--a #1 national bestseller and "one of Stephen King's best" (USA TODAY). In this case, you have one woman handcuffed to a bed. Each time her eyes caught sight of the handcuffs dangling from the posts at the head of the bed, one sprung open, the other a closed steel circle covered with blood-her blood-a little sound of loathing and distress escaped her. When her thighs were touching the bloodstained mattress, she carefully put her left knee up, grasped one of the footposts to ensure her balance, and then got onto the bed. (hide spoiler)] Like the time that this book was confiscated by a "concerned teacher" when I brought it to school with me.
Goody asked. Oh, and a shadow man she, in her delirium, starts calling the Space Cowboy, who might be as much in her head as the voices or who might actually be real. So she retaliates with unfortunate consequences, leaving Gerald dead. Download Gerald’s Game [PDF] from below or purchase a copy from Amazon. There was nothing she could do about it.

Jessie had a pretty good idea she would be preparing to leave in the Mercedes even if the phone were in perfect working order and she had already summoned the police, the ambulance, and the Deering High School Marching Band. The important thing is that I have to get the f*ck out of here rightaway, she thought, and suddenly she shuddered.

Stephen King, the world's bestselling novelist, was educated at the University of Maine at Orono. And if the plug was out, put it back in. For a lot of Constant Readers, Gerald's Game will always be linked to its sister novel -- Dolores Claiborne -- as both books were released the same year and King meant them to be companion novels to one another. Hers. Still handcuffed, she is trapped and alone. She could hear the fast light beat of her heart, could smell the mixed aromas of blood and well-water. If I die of blood-loss now, am I supposed to blameit on four aspirin after I damned near scalped my right hand in order toget off the bed in the first place? And pulling the chair out would only be the beginning. That's surreal! Compared to performingimpromptu surgery with a water-glass and pushing a double bed across the room while losing a pint of blood, it'll be a breeze. You bet you were, And do you know what my heart saysnow, Ruth? She had no way of knowing this... but her heart knew it just the same. No, she had nothing at all against Ms Right.

This is where King shines. The problem wasn't Gerald, or the chair, or what the Rescue Services guys might think when they got down here and saw the situation. After being handcuffed to her bedposts, Jessie tires of her husband's games, but when Gerald refuses to stop, the evening ends with deadly consequences.

Ruth cried. Please God, okay? You have lots of great Stephen King reads ahead of do I. I read Gerald's Game a couple years ago, and am frustrated bc any time I get a "like" on one of my older reviews and see I didn't mark it "own a copy" I mark it not to add to my update feed and it pops up anyway....oh well.....perhaps that is a good thing.
