Summary:

When a game of seduction between a husband and wife ends in death, the nightmare has only just begun in this sinister twist on a bedtime story-a #1 national bestseller and "one of Stephen King's best" ( USA TODAY ). Gerald and Jessie Burlingame have gone to their summer home on a warm weekday in October for a romantic getaway. After being handcuffed to her bedposts, Jessie tires of her husband's games, but when Gerald refuses to stop, the evening ends with deadly consequences. Still handcuffed, Jessie is trapped and alone. Over the next twenty-eight hours, in the lakeside house that has become a prison, Jessie will come face-to-face with all the things she has ever feared. Her only company is a hungry, stray dog and the various voices that fill her mind. As night comes, she is unsure whether it is her imagination or if she has another companion: someone watching her from the corner of her dark bedroom. A master of his craft, Stephen King's novels haunt in many different ways. Gerald's Game "kept us up half the night, we couldn't put it down" ( Newsweek ).

    One of my least favourite books just due to the content. But it is equally as thrilling

    First off it's really hard for me to dislike anything written by Stephen King and honestly the writing really isn't the issue. Yes, this book is very dark and delves into some very uncomfortable things. The narrator didn't do a bad job. Not that being said; I'm not sure who the hell did the audio edits, but GOOD LORD! There is this trippy music that plays in between chapters and it's very strange (not in a good way). It sounds like creepy, turn the page chimes. I hated it. Listen at your own risk.
