Episode 19

Misery by Stephen King (1987)

Please note this is a HORROR novel and though we don't go into graphic detail it's likely not one to listen to with anyone of a sensitive disposition.

Misery is probably best known for the hobbling scene, gifs have been made of it - but just how accurate is that movie scene? Today I am joined by Lorraine, a friend and fellow podcaster (Once Upon a Nightmare and American Murder Stories) to talk about the 1987 book that spawned a film about stalkers and obsessed fans. What did we think? How did I convince Lorraine to join me to talk about a book? All of this is answered today.
