Title: Lisey's Story: A Novel
Author: Stephen King
Year First Published: 2008
Page Count: 528
Synopsis: Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a twenty-five-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, bestselling novelist and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and bools. Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went -- a place that both terrified and healed him, that could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live. Now it's Lisey's turn to face Scott's demons, Lisey's turn to go to Boo'ya Moon. What begins as a widow's effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited. Perhaps King's most personal and powerful novel, Lisey's Story is about the wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love.

Profanity Violence Sexual Content
Typical. Nothing too over the top More romance, less violence. A scene or two. Nothing objectionable.
Characterization Plot Overall Rating
Great development of the characters. What a cool idea. I loved it. Not vintage King, but a very nice escape.
If you'd like to read a good romance involving the supernatural, this books for you. I loved it.
