The writing will just kind of end, no punctuation or completion, and pick up in the next segment or section with a continuation from a different perspective or in memory or in a different time.

Historia Lisey – Wikipedia, wolna encyklopedia

It shifts between past tense and present tense and 3rd person limited and 3rd person omniscient, and all storylines and times and perspectives meld together. So you have to keep up to know where and historia lisey you are in the story In the text, as I'm not usually a header reader, my eye just naturally skips the breaks and continues on.


It's not the same kind of unbroken narrative as say, Cujo, which would have definitely benefited from some segmentation, but it almost feels as though it is at times.

It has a kind of pseudo-stream of consciousness mixed with magical realism feel that works for the story, without feeling annoyingly tedious as I usually find both SOC and MR to be. So, good job there, King.

But another thing that I noticed is that there are a lot of connections and links to his previous work, meaning his stories, characters, and themes, and to his own life.

This is both good and bad. Someone who is very familiar with King's work might feel that it is either self-derivative or chock full of fun easter eggs and connections, depending on how charitable they are feeling at the time. historia lisey

I can see it both ways, but I tend to lean more toward the charitable side and I can enjoy the influences his previous work had on this story. That he was cognizant of his abuse and had, in his mind or in reality, a reason for it, makes him a more understandable and relateable character for me, but I couldn't help making that connection because of the very similar feels of the characters when they were in their hectoring rages, and especially given the love that their sons both held for the men who hurt them and their family members.

Lisey, though VERY different from her, had a bit of Dolores Claiborne in her nature, if only the stubbornness and backbone to wade through fire to help the people she loves.

Lisey and Dolores don't have much else in common, but that stalwart quality makes up for a lot. We talked about Lisey a bit at my bookclub meeting last night, and it was pointed out that Lisey is one of the few women that King has written who doesn't really DO anything.

She doesn't really have her own thing - she's purely there to be a support system for her sister, and then historia lisey her husband. And even after he's gone, she still does nothing but exist until she starts to clean out his office, and then the floodgates open and things start happening that makes her act accordingly.

But, she's not a philanthropist, she doesn't volunteer, she's not on committees or boards or even have any hobbies that I can tell.

Historia Lisey

She's really just something of a shim - the piece that holds something else stable and in place. Scott Landon had a bit of Jack Sawyer and Mike Noonan and King himself, and even though we never get to see Scott while he's alive outside of flashbacks and memorieshe is one of my favorite characters.

His history and his story, and his methods of coping and adapting and his refusal to historia lisey on the cycle of this madness, is commendable. I found myself often wishing that I could just give him a hug and comfort him, because he lived through so much hurt and pain.

It made me feel a bit better that he found happiness and support and understanding in Lisey, even IF she had nothing outside of that role. That sentence probably sets the woman's lib and feminism movements back about a historia lisey years, but I'm not sorry about it, and I'm not taking it back.

He is such historia lisey tragic character that I'm happy he got to be happy for a while. Anyway, I'm rambling on now. What I'm getting at is that while I can see how he borrowed bits from his previous characters, I liked it more than not.


I really liked how the story was actually plotted around Amanda even though it's not MUCH of a plot, if I'm honest while it's the history of Historia lisey life and Scott and Lisey's marriage that actually helps her recover.

I loved the interactions of the sisters and how real and fucked up they were.

As Lisey is stalked, terrorized, and then mutilated by an insane fan of her husband's, Lisey begins recalling her husband's past—how he came from a family with a history of horrible mental illness that manifested as either an uncontrollable homicidal mania or as a deep catatonia, how he had a special gift, an ability to transport himself to another world, which he called "Boo'ya Moon", how Scott Landon's brother was killed by his father when his brother manifested an incurable insanity, and finally how Scott Landon had to kill his own father to save him from the madness that had finally taken him over.

Potential adaptation[ edit ] In AugustKing expressed an interest in seeing the historia lisey adapted as a television series, "Lisey's Story is my favorite of the books and I would love to see that done, especially now that there's a kind of openness on the streaming services on TV and even the cable networks.

There's more freedom to do stuff now and when you do a movie from a book, there's this thing that I call the sitting on a suitcase syndrome.
