    One thought on “Rose Madder”

    1. My book club read this book last month. This is how book club went basically: Joy: Colleen, what was your favorite part of this book?Me: Well, Joy, I'll get to that in a few, but would anyone like some chocolate? (Passes around a bowl of chocolate until they are all staring at me expectantly. Reluctantly continues.) You know, Joy, Stephen King never disappoints. Every time I turned the page, there were more words that formed sentences. The kind of sentences that make up all of Stephen King's boo [...]

    2. 3.5 StarsIf you can handle a story of horrific abuse, Hannibal Lector's idea of a tasty dinner, and haunted dreams from the beyond, you're going to love ROSE MADDER.Norman "Bates" Daniels is a lunatic cop with a foul mouth and a sick, evil mind, and for wife Rose, a life of fear and pain begins the night of her honeymoonr the reader, it's almost immediate and a real shocker.Unprepared, terrified and alone, after 14 long years of living in hell, Rose finally flees for her life knowing full well h [...]

    3. Probably my favorite King book, Rose Madder contains some of his creepiest imagery and the best characterization of a woman that he's managed thus far. It's hard not to get involved in Rosie's problems as she runs from a horrifically abusive marriage. The supernatural horror aspect of the story doesn't even enter into it until fairly late in the book; King gives you the chance to watch Rosie grow and change, and to set the stage for what will happen next.Definitely the one I would loan to someon [...]

    4. “The concept of dreaming is known to the waking mind but to the dreamer there is no waking, no real world, no sanity; there is only the screaming bedlam of sleep.”Stephen King can be downright weird with surprises he leaves for the reader. For the bulk of the book, it's an interesting story of an abused woman escaping her sadistic and tormenting husband. The main character is a sympathetic lead who doesn't indulge in melodrama or denial, but comes across realistically written when she escape [...]

    5. I just met crazy rivaling that of Annie Wilkes. Norman Daniels. He’s a special kind of nut.Turns out this book was better than I had anticipated. Maybe that’s due to low expectations, seeing that many put this one towards the bottom of their personal King ratings. Introducing a preternatural painting within a story about spousal abuse is “out there”, maybe more so than his other books. But isn’t that what King does so well? The painting did not necessarily overwhelm the narrative. It a [...]

    6. This is definately my least favorite of the King books I've read so far. I simultaniously loved and hated this book. There were no parts that I just likedriously I was either loving it or hating it. Clearly since I gave it 3 stars I loved more parts then I hated.First the good stuff. As usual Kings take on a crazy person is always amazing and terrifying. My first King book was Misery and I just love his crazy villians. I was actually getting a little bored with the book until Rosie found her pai [...]

    7. Now I remember why I didn't like this the first time I read it. It wears out its welcome a good 60 pages before the end. We get our denouement, and then we're made to wade through a goodly chunk of book before we can call it done. Still, Rose Madder is okay. I think what keeps this book pretty middle of the road for me is Norman Daniels, our cliched villain. King has three types of male antagonists: women beaters, child molesters, and racists. Norman Daniels suffers from the former and the latte [...]

    8. The 31st book in my long-term Stephen King reading project and the first one I had never read before. Considering common opinion (including King's own) and my friends views, I enjoyed more than I thought I would. However, it's far from without issues. For a long time I had a vague idea about men like Rose's husband. I imagined that somewhere along the way something went wrong and what causes the rest of us to behave like human beings was lost in them. The abundance of them made me refine my theo [...]

    9. I really believe that Rose Madder contains one of the most relentless, heart stopping pursuits in any novel anywhere, and - in Norman Daniels - the strongest villain in any of King’s work. King doesn’t just describe Norman Daniels’s actions in Rose Madder; he gets inside the monster’s head and in the process shows us the kind of thoughts that motivate a violent murderer. Rose McClendon married Norman right after high school, suffered a vicious bite from him on their wedding night, and fr [...]

    10. Stephen King once famously proclaimed himself the Big Mac and fries of literature — meaning his works are popular and enjoyable, albeit perhaps lacking in nourishment. I heartily disagree with that assessment, for the most part. Novels such as IT, Dolores Claiborne, and The Dead Zone are intricate, multi-layered masterstrokes; methinks King is too modest in regards to his own creations. However. . . the Maine author's observation does hold true in a few select cases. Christine is a barrel of f [...]

    11. Great suspense. Wife runs from her abusive husband who is now tracking herORY BRIEF:The first 10% is Rose living with Norman. They’ve been married fourteen years. He bites, stabs, and punches her. (Most of this harm is told rather than shown so it’s a little less painful for the reader.) The next 80% is Rose leaving Norman, surviving with help from an organization, meeting someone, and Norman’s search for her. The organization helps abused women on the run. The women in the organization ha [...]

    12. A blend of horrific reality and mythical fantasy, Rose Madder came out of the left field and surprised me in the best way! I've seen a lot of less-than-positive reviews of this particular King, but I loved it. I loved the Greek mythology references, I loved the main character Rosie McClendon, I loved the raw, brutal story, everything!The prologue really sets the tone for the rest of the novel, it's one of the hardest things I've ever had to read. It's not for the fainthearted and there's a lot o [...]

    13. Rose Madder is part of a group of King books I had yet not read. Well, I'm glad I did. Like his best efforts, it is character driven. And in Rose Daniels/McClendon King supplies one of the best characters in all the books I've read by him. On the dark side of things, her abusive husband is one of his darkest villains. What makes both so interesting is that they are also complex. Rose, whose innocence covers a core of rage; and Norman, who for all of his brutality, is ultimately pathetic. What Ki [...]

    14. This contains both the good and bad (well not really bad) of Stephen King. I really loved the part of the book where he descibes Rose's relationship with her abusive husband, how she breaks away finally from that and then runs away from him across the country. Norman, a police officer hunts Rose down and begins to eliminate those who try to interfere with his pursuit of his wife. Great characters who are described in depth.The bad part of the book begins with the painting Rose buys for her new a [...]

    15. This is without a doubt the worst Stephen King book I've read. Why he felt the need to add the fantasy element in I don't know, but I found it absolutely ridiculous.Norman Daniels (the psychopath husband) was almost a caricature more than a character. A purely evil, hateful man with no redeeming qualities whatsoever, yet we're expected to believe this psycopath functions perfectly well in the police force and is a highly decorated detective? Trying to imagine this man being sympathetic and kind [...]

    16. The best thing about the book was perhaps the beginning. Inspite of being an author of the horror genre King brought out the brutality of domestic abuse so terrifyingly well. I remember beads of sweat collecting on my forehead while reading the opening.

    17. La mente despierta conoce el concepto del sueño, pero para la persona que sueña no existe el mundo de la vigilia, el mundo real, la cordura; la confusión demencial del sueño. Rose McClendon Daniels durmió inmersa en la locura de su marido durante otros nueve años.Es un buen libro de King. No es de lo mejor, pero se deja leer. Es una novela que engancha desde el principio. Ya con ese prólogo es imposible no seguir leyendo. El autor nos escribe sobre Rose Daniels, una mujer que trata de esc [...]

    18. Ich habe es als Hörbuch gehört und muss sagen, dass die Stimme der Dame das Hörbuch sehr ansprechend gemacht hat. Wenn ich mich nicht arg täusche, war es die Synchronstimme unserer Anny Wilkes aus dem Roman 'Sie' oder auch 'Berta' aus der Serie 'Two and a half men'. Die Geschichte begann sofort spannend und auch, wenn es nach meinem Empfinden wieder sehr viele Längen gab, hat mir das Buch doch im Allgemeinen recht gut gefallen. Da das ganze Geschehen etwas ins Surreale rutscht, fand ich es [...]

    19. This is Stephen King so of course I did enjoy it, simply because I love his writing, but I don't think this is one of his best.The story of an abused woman finally leaving her husband and him going after her is a good premise. For me, I just aren't convinced that the "supernatural" aspect of the story added anything extra. It was entertaining enough for me without the "magic" painting and everything that came with that.I did enjoy the way in which the author portrayed Rose. She began as a weak w [...]

    20. This book was the most amazing Stephen King book I have read to date! It was absolutely amazing and would make the most awesome movie! Stephen King is very skilled in character building when it comes to villains- e.g. Annie Wilkes from Misery, The Mad Cop from Desperation or Pennywise from IT. Norman Daniels is main character Rose's abusively psychotic cop husband. After 14 years of abuse and mistreatment, Rose runs away which causes Norman to come after her. Norman scared me a bit as he was unp [...]

    21. While reading this book I kept forgetting that it was a Stephen King novel. It has it's twists and turns (as his usual work does) but this was so much more than good vs. evil. Rose Madder is an emotional account of an abused woman who is trying to break free from a tormenting life, and has what is portrayed as a psychological break through as she goes on a journey to be free. King also touches on the downfalls of the system that fails to protect women from situations like Rose is in. Unfortunate [...]

    22. Savrseno napeto i s gropom u zelucu citajuci i iscekivati tko ce ovdje izvuci deblji kraj. I onda paranormalni dio koji ljulja cijeli tijek i razbija ono odlicno u knjizi. Joj kako bih voljela da tog dijela nije bilo! :P

    23. It's a 3.7. Better than the last time I read it. Norman Daniels is really, really scary. I don't think the supernatural elements in this work nearly as well as they usually do for King. And the final third of the novel is the weakest for me. That's always a bummer.

    24. Not my usual kind of book. I loved the writing. I could have done without the fantasy part, but the entire book and title hinged upon it.

    25. The only reason I read this book was because it was mentioned as one that links to the Dark Tower series. It doesn’t really tie into the series but different aspects are mentioned in this book, which to me are always fun to find as I read. It turns out that I ended up really liking this book. I was a little worried at first whether I was going to actually finish this book.So the description says the story is about a Husband how is beating his wife and she leaves him, with constant fear he will [...]

    26. Audiobook – Narrated by Blair Brown – Just an ok narration.I don’t particularly care for female narrators so Blair Brown really wasn’t what I wanted to hear. I was at the “almost ready to give up” stage when who should drop by and join the cast? The author himself (he wasn't listed as narrator). What a great surprise and the only reason I finished listening to the audio.***Ebook: 4**** (Better than a 3 but not quite a 4)I hated the first part of this book. I was bored witless, and I [...]

    27. A fine example of books that start out brilliantly, lose the grip somewhere in between, and just go downhill from there. I cannot believe I finished it. My only motivation behind finishing it was to find out if the end is really what I was thinking of. And no, it was worse.An abused wife runs away from home; the descriptive scenes, the in-depth psychological insights about the male and female protagonists were just awesome. They hooked to me the book. And I had heard so much about Stephen King, [...]

    28. ¡Atrapante! aunque no entendí el final (Alguien explíqueme porfa Acaso el trauma causado por Norman fue el origen de su actitud final?). Me encantó el villano (me hizo acordar a la contraparte de Thad Beaumont), el efecto espejo (Lo real vs el mundo de la pintura), sus conexiones con La Torre Oscura que estoy seguro encontraré en la medida avance con la saga. A pesar de engancharme con la historia, no puedo decir que fue un mega wow, esto por el postnormancuadro que no me resultó tan claro [...]

    29. Started out really strong. Then it lost me once Rosie stepped into the painting. I think this book would have been much better without the paranormal aspect added to it. Plus once the bad guy is taken care of towards the end the story should have quickly wrapped up. Unfortunately it didn't. It continued for a good minute after that. After such a long audiobook I just wanted it to be over already.

    30. The whole world is waking up, she thought. It isn't just me. She stayed where she was for a moment longer, like an animal which has been kept in a cage so long it cannot believe in freedom even when it is offered. She reached behind her and touched the know of the door-the door that led into her cage."No more", she whispered. She tucked her purse under one arm and took her first dozen steps into the fogbank which was now her future.After surviving fourteen years in an abusive marriage, Rosie McC [...]
