Summary

Dolores Claiborne has a story to tell. But it is not quite what the police had expected.

Dolores Claiborne has a confession to make.... She will take her time. Won't be hurried. Will do it her way, sparing neither details nor feelings. Hers or anyone else's.

This is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Truth that takes you to the edge of darkness. Dolores Claiborne has a story to tell, and you'd better pay attention - or else.

Stephen King might just be my favourite author.

How good is this book. (Rhetorical)
I was hooked from the start. Great reader too.

Absolutely a great read!

This is my favorite SK book. The story is amazing and the audiobook's actress brings Dolores to life! Not so much horror element as in so many Kings books, other than the horror some people show others in cruel and mean ways. I love it!

One of the best

Not sure how old this published book is but it should have been written for audio. An incredible challenge to write an entire book based on one woman's statement from start to finish. The narration needed to be good and it was perfect. Add to that a the typical king world and characters and it was faultless. I absolutely loved this book, so theyar brilliant

Loved it!

This is the perfect book to be an audio book. ..the narrator was excellent. ..as a Brit, I don't know if the regional accent is correct, but it sounded fab to me. Love the depth and richness of the characters. Dolores is my newest heroine

A gripping story of a small town/island mother

masterful tale of a hard working mother's love for her children and her life on a small island off the coast of North East America. King's insight of small town lifestyle is fantastic.
