Misery - Stephen King
By far one of the best Stephen King novels. A true literary masterpiece. How he keeps the tension going with just 2 characters is simply astonishing. This book is far more horrific than most of King's as it is not supernatural, more a psychotic thiller. The brutal scenes of torture are hard to read sometimes and again we have the writer now being hated by a woman as a homicidal maniac. A role reversal of The Shining. A must read before you die.
