About This Book
A mysterious and haunting spirit lurks within the walls of Rose Red, the setting
for Stephen King's upcoming ABC miniseries tie-in by the same name. Built on a
Native American burial ground in early 20th-century Seattle, the mansion which
is constantly under construction sets the scene for a multitude of inexplicable
disappearances and ghastly deaths. While moody oil tycoon John Rimbauer refuses
to acknowledge that the house has a mind of its own, his young wife, Ellen,
dramatizes these eerie events with great detail in her diary, often personifying
the house as if it were a living being. (Or, perhaps, a non-living being?) While
the evolution of Ellen's character from innocent and submissive to frighteningly
powerful is a slow process, the language and questioning nature of her entries
entice the reader as the mystery of Rose Red is brought into full bloom. Ellen
also reveals frustration and disappointment with her marriage namely her
husband's unfaithfulness and alarmingly frequent involvement in voyeuristic
activities as well as a growing confusion about her sexual identity and
attachment to her friend and African handmaid, Sukeena. In addition to extensive
dialogue that makes the diary seem a tad more like a novel than someone's
personal confessions, Ellen's entries are accompanied by a handful of
explanatory notes put in by the "editor" and supposed professor of paranormal
studies, Joyce Reardon. The people mentioned in the diary, as well as Reardon,
are all characters in Rose Red, which was created directly for television by the
bestselling author. As to who penned the actual text of the diary? That remains
as much of a mystery as Rose Red herself.
