Gerald's GameAs a game of seduction between a husband and wife. King likes to demonstrate that he is the pimp grandmaster of using one single setting to show us how it has to be done Including childhood trauma how far one might go to survive married life and how it can develop and switching between the terror of the seemingly hopeless situation and flashbacks to the mystery of what happened when the protagonist was a girl and how those events influenced the current happeningsThe situation of being just alone in a remote area or helpless or bound or next to the dead body of a loved one is frightening enough but all at once together where nobody hears you scream except of the definitively wrong people is truly a bad situation Hunger thirst nature evil forces all together united against one single brave woman A very similar setting to his novel misery except that there is no personified danger in the form of an axe crazy womanThe introspections omg how King slips inside the minds of his protagonists how the reader is shattered by each new little twist each deterioration of the already precarious situation how realistic and credible the characters think and feel how less actually happens and how suspenseful and intriguing the few plot twists seem in retrospection view spoiler The killer at the end is just described on a few pages but the intensity and concreteness are immense Also realizing that such a hardcore sick freak was standing there lurking and stalking around gives a giant finale goosebump hide spoiler

I'm revising my previous estimation of this book up one star I'm gonna be a little spoilery Why The re read was actually rather satisfying Yes it's a novel about survival and all the kinds of crap that men make women do to satisfy themselves but it's also a rather moving novel about keeping or losing one's sanity in the face of all those expectationsNever mind the sheer horror of being handcuffed to a bed without hope of being saved because your lover just keeled over or watching a dog eat your husband as you go thirsty It's a lot than just that It's memories and other humiliations and the struggle to find oneself through one hell of an ordealPlus I kinda like the fact that we're dealing with a very Poe ish or Aristotelian art ethic here It's very focused in time and place forcing us to go down deep into the subconscious I can't help but appreciate that now than when I was younger shrugEither way I also enjoyed the almost tacked on feel of the extended denouement It really gave a sense of reflection and of shoring up her defenses after having them all stripped away both literally and figuratively I felt the power of the positive reversalNow I should say that I'm revising this from my three stars to four based mainly on the fact that the novel is good on its own but when I chose to give it three from memory I did so based on my enjoyment in comparison with the rest of Stephen King's works It isn't his strongest novel by far but it was still uite enjoyableI think I'm going to really enjoy the movie in a few days

A different kind of bedtime story from Stephen King. ”This wasn’t the smile though This was the grin a version of it he seemed to save just for these sessions She had an idea that to Gerald who was on the inside of it the grin felt wolfish Piratical maybe From her angle however lying here with her arms raised above her head and nothing on but a pair of bikini panties it only looked stupid No retarded He was after all no devil may care adventurer like the ones in the mens’ magazines over which he had spent the furious ejaculations of his lonely overweight puberty; he was an attorney with a pink too large face spreading below a widow’s peak which was narrowing relentlessly toward total baldness Just an attorney with a hard on poking the front of his undershorts out of shape And only moderately out of shape at that” Poor Gerald unfortunately he is merely a plot device and his moments on center stage are destined to be fleeting He has recently discovered this new sexual kink that puts the fire back in the dragon It changes everything and soon it becomes apparent that he can’t raise the flag any unless he handcuffs his wife Jessie to a bed He wants and needs her to be absolutely submissive Jessie is complicit She feels okay with it; maybe even feels a little excited about that horny glint in Gerald’s eye and it adds to the excitement that they decided to run up to the summer house in the fall when no one is there Gerald didn’t skimp on the euipment oh no he bought the real McCoy not toys but police issue handcuffs It adds to his pleasure knowing she is completely helpless wellnottotally helplessNow maybe there is something extra stimulating for Gerald to lock his wife to a bed knowing that they are in the middle of nowhere knowing that no one can hear a thing He has a look in his eye that makes Jessie think that he is prepared to take the GAME too far She asks to be released He likes this new twist A rape fantasy is blooming before his eyes He isn’t going to release her Jessie kicks him Her aim is excellent and those legs belong to someone who used to be athletic She catches him in the gonads and in the stomach Gerald exits stage left but though his lines are finished his corpse still has a role to playJessie is in a pickle ”Those are real handcuffs you’re wearing not the cute little bondage numbers with the padding inside the wristlets and a hidden escape lever you can push if someone gets carried away and starts going a little too far You’re for real locked up and you don’t happen to be either fakir from the Mysterious East capable of twisting your body up like a pretzel or an escape artist like Harry Houdini or David Copperfield I’m just telling it the way I see it okay And the way I see it you’re toast”I don’t know if Jessie is technically schizophrenic because sometimes voices in our heads can be good guiding forces and not necessarily debilitating A traumatic event like being handcuffed to a bed in the middle of nowhere might bring out all kinds of voices in my head I would hope that Jimmy Stewart’s voice would show up Wouldn’t that be great hearing him say ‘now just calm down Jeff we are going to get through this’ Jessie’s voices old friends it seems are sometimes very encouraging and sometimes depressively pragmatic about the situation Jessie an old hand at sorting out the voices vacillates between thinking about how she can live and thinking about exactly how she will die as the voices wage a war in her head The keys yes the keys are way over there on the dresser She gets a cramp It was only a matter of time ”A fresh cramp sank long bitter teeth into her left armpit and she pulled her cracked lips back in a grimace It was like having your heart poked with the tines of a barbecue fork Then the muscles just below her breasts tightened and the bundle of nerves in her solar plexus seemed to ignite like a pile of dry sticks This pain was new and it was enormous far beyond anything she had experienced thus far It bent her backward like a greenwood stick her torso twisting from side to side knees snapping open and shut Her hair flew in clots and clumps She tried to scream and couldn’t For a moment she was sure this was it the end of the line One final convulsion as powerful as six sticks of dynamite planted in a granite ledge and out you go Jessie; cashier’s on your rightBut this one passed too”Does anyone truly understand fear better than Stephen King Let’s ratchet it up a bit Entered through the pet door stage right is the stray dog formerly known as Prince He is a demented version of the dog that was once loved and coddled by a girl He is beyond hungry on the verge of starvation Yeah it gets a bit gruesomeBeing tied up with death staring you in the face will probably lead most anyone to a few moments of reflection Jessie thinks about her father and the stain he left on her life Even as an adult looking back the situations that occurred are baffling The manipulations and the secrets are still wiggling in her subconscious never to be completely still or properly categorized like a mounted butterfly or a file marked DONE It is an ongoing evaluation She sees someonein the room Hallucination or real Something that genetically monstrous can’t be realcan it One of the things I like about Stephen King is he usually gives nods to other writers or artists or musicians reminding me that he is beyond just a pop culturewellKing If you want to go to heavenLet me tell you how to do itYou gotta grease your feetWith a little mutton suetYou just slide out of the devil’s handAnd ooze on over to the Promised Land;Take it easyGo greasy A bit of Woody Guthrieoh so appropriateas it turns out to the situation I was caught up in this book and blew through pages like Speedy Gonzales By the end I felt that King added too many elements which detracted from the overall believability of the situation for me True terror comes from me being totally sold on all the twists and turns Despite those misgivings I still really enjoyed the book and he convinced me most emphatically that I don’t need two pair of police issue handcuffs to spice up my love life Shudder
