Now a Netflix movie directed by Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Hush) and starring Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood.
A game. A husband and wife game. Gerald's Game.
But this time Jesse didn't want to play. Lying there, spreadeagled and handcuffed to the bedstead while he'd loomed and drooled over her, she felt angry and humiliated.
So she'd kicked out hard. Aimed to hit him where it hurt.
He wasn't meant to die, leaving Jesse alone and helpless in a lakeside holiday cabin. Miles from anywhere. No-one to hear her screams.
Alone. Except for the voices in her head that had begun to chatter and argue and sneer . . .
Love king love this
Very good story as expected amazing detail. Couldn't put the book down! Only downside for me personally was the ending, very abrupt on a happy note, was hoping for something a bit darker. Just my opinion though. Worth a read
I've read most King novels but missed Gerald's Game - maybe it always sounded a bit dull to a teenage fan.
Finally read it and wow - very likely the scariest book he's ever written. And some of his best writing. It's a bizarre blend of the 'locked door' mystery, psychological horror, survival story, abuse narrative and probably one of the few times King has written a perfectly formed grown female character. And when it suddenly starts to add in the supernatural horror it's genuinely chilling in a way that even something like IT never was.
It's also strangely uplifting. Like a grown up version of the girl who loved Tom Gordon.
