A novel review of the girl who loved tom gordon by stephen king

Background[ edit ] One of Stephen King's inspirations for Misery was the reaction his fans had to his novel The Eyes of the Dragon.

She listens to her Walkman to keep her mood up, either to learn of news of the search for her, or to listen to the baseball game featuring her favorite player, and "heartthrob," Tom Gordon. So the music is echoing down the hall, and, I mean, it was like God had put me there to hear that and see those things.

A hunter who has come upon the confrontation between girl and beast frightens the beast away and takes Trisha to safety, but Trisha knows that she earned her rescue.

Racked with pneumonia and near death, she comes upon a road, but just as she discovers signs of civilization, she is confronted by a bear, which she interprets as the God of the Lost in disguise.

It is a much more believable storyline than that of Pet Semetery or The Shining, for example. Annie is an avid reader of Paul's Misery series, proclaiming herself Paul's "number one fan". Annie grows increasingly depressive, and reveals that she knows about Paul leaving his room.

That's one of the reasons why you make up the story.

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon

The rescuers search in the area around the path, but not as far away as Trisha has gone. The problem that I had though, is that, lets be real, nothing really happens. The girl decides to follow a creek because of what she read in Little House on the Prairie though it soon turns into a swamp-like riverrationalizing that all bodies of water lead eventually to civilization.

She imagines several people from her life, as well as her hero, Tom Gordon, appearing to her. King just shows it with as little censorship as humanely possible duh.

She is left with a bottle of water, two Twinkiesa boiled egga tuna sandwicha bottle of Surgea ponchoa Game Boyand a Walkman. The idea was prompted by the occasional person asking, "What ever happened to Danny?

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King - review

Racked with pneumonia and near death, she comes upon a road, but just as she discovers signs of civilization, she is confronted by a bear, which she interprets as the God of the Lost in disguise.

She finds her divorced parents and older brother waiting near her bedside. Even though he on occasion could down a few beers too many, he still lived in the house that they knew as home, and they would be allowed to stay in the same schools. As she starts to take steps to survive by conserving what little food she has with her and consuming edible flora, her mother and brother return to their car without her and call the police and start a search.

Apparitions take solid form and the garden's topiary animals come to life. She is left with a bottle of water, two Twinkiesa boiled egga tuna sandwicha bottle of Surgea ponchoa Game Boyand a Walkman.

I also found myself really liking Trisha, the main character.

Different Seasons

Perhaps for someone who does not have as large of an imagination as I have or who is not a fan of baseball, this book would be scary. New Horror meets old school terror--very clever, almost poetic in its implications of suburban infiltrators that are not the boogeymen--they are the residents themselves.

But hear me out. I woke up with a tremendous jerk, sweating all over, within an inch of falling out of bed. Facing down her fear, she realizes it is the bottom of the ninth, and she must close the game.

Eventually, after a random encounter with a child with a skunk, Paul gains inspiration to write a new story, weeping both in misery for his shattered life and in joy that he is finally able to write again. However, as I said, the settings, scenes and storyline were all very realistic and believable, and it was these things that scared me the most.

Psychological thrillers have been known to give me the creeps, and I still can not watch a scary movie past three in the afternoon in case it plants an idea in my head that would give me With my holidays finally coming to a close after a busy month, I was in need of a quick, fast paced read.

He becomes a monster under the control of the hotel, succumbing to his dark side. Film adaptation[ edit ] Although George A. Yeah, these tales are familiar: Annie was my drug problem, and she was my number-one fan. Upon awakening, he sees headlights and two state police officers through the windows, and throws one of Annie's figurines through the glass to gain their attention.

He warns them that Annie is possibly still alive and in the guest bedroom, and passes out when they tell him the room was empty. Fighting off a last attempt by the hotel to possess him, Hallorann guides Danny and Wendy to safety. I viewed this story as a coming of age tale of a girl who is a product of divorce and finds herself lost in the woods, using baseball as her anchor.
