Added DiffLines:

* ContrivedCoincidence: ''Gerald's Game'' is set in motion by the stars aligning in such a ludicrous fashion that you kind of have to laugh. But the protagonist's ensuing predicament is awful enough that you won't be laughing for long.

* TooDumbToLive: The couple break one of the most intrinsic rules of bondage in that the restrained person must ''always'' be able to escape or call for help if the restrainer is incapacitated for any reason. Likewise metal police handcuffs are not recommended for the same reasons.[[note]] Handcuffs sold for bondage enthusiasts ALWAYS have quick release catches to avert the possibility of the scenario in this novel occurring.[[/note]]

* VomitingCop: Sheriff Norris Ridgewick throws up, when he finds what is in the truck of Raymond Andrew Joubert, a [[spoiler: necrophiliac cannibal (for example, a sandwich with a human tongue)]]. A character says that "the State Police would have torn him a new asshole if he'd puked on the evidence. On the other hand, I'd have wanted him removed from his job for psychological reasons if he hadn't thrown up."

** Killing the only other person who even knows where you are is, to put it mildly, a highly unfortunate accident to have.
