Mark West has been running a very interesting project called King For A Year, which you can read about here. This week it’s my turn to offer a view on one of King’s works, namely Gerald’s Game which is one of my favourites. I get a bit heavy with the analysis rather than offering a straight forward review, but if that sounds like your cup of tea you can read it here.
I blogged about another of King’s novels a while back, back when I intended to do one for each season, so if you’re interested in what I have to say about The Shining, click here.
Both pieces were adapted from my undergraduate dissertation which was titled (rather pretentiously!) The House[hold] of Horror: Locating the Monstrous in the Works of Stephen King. It focussed on three novels, and so hopefully some day soon I’ll adapt the third for this blog (it’ll be Cujo).
