"King at his best...a winner."--The New York Times
"Undiluted horror...wonderful...A primal storyteller writing about a primal scream."--Houston Chronicle
"Suspenseful, entertaining, genuinely scary."--USA Today
"Nerve-jangling...razor keen."--Kirkus Reviews
"Solid character delineation and terrifying insight. In addition to being able to scare the reader breathless, King says a tremendous amount about writing itself. We delight in his virtuosity."--The Washington Post
"Dazzlingly well-written."--The Indianapolis Star
"Terrifying...King is a terrific storyteller."--San Francisco Chronicle
"Classic King...full of twists and turns and mounting suspense."--Boston Globe
"Page-turningly effective, stringing out every scene to the screaming point."--Chicago Sun-Times
"Stephen King at his best...frighteningly good."--Philadelphia Inquirer
"Vintage King...a masterpiece of horror...creates a level of tension that makes it difficult to keep your eyes from jumping to the next page to escape sooner."--Cincinnati Post
"Deft psychological horror...easily one of King's best novels."--The Boston Herald
"Unadulteratedly terrifying."--Publishers Weekly
"As is his genius, King never relaxes the oh-my-god tension until the final paragraph."--San Diego Tribune
"Compelling...totally involving."--Library Journal
"Misery had me on edge for days after I'd finished it... the novel is something else -- an airless, claustrophobic portrait of an egotistic writer pushed to the edge of madness by pain, pills, incarceration, the expectations of his reading public and a deadline like he's never known before. In the book, our hero is as threatened by the demons within as he is by the madwoman beside his bed. Like him, you the reader can't wait to escape; yet you can no more walk away from Mr. King's tightly spun yarn than Paul can walk away from his captor."--The New York Times
