Dolores Claiborne by Stephen King

Dolores stephen king

I wanted her to kill him so badly, I couldn't wait to find out how she did it. Because it was that brilliantly written. What is the book about? There's zero filler, and that's unheard of where King's concerned. I loved the little tidbits of info doled out in his Oh my. It tied things together for me, as it bonded these two women over so many years. You may have heard of me.

I was interested in her relatationship with Vera Donovan for before the latter turned into demented harpy she was, well, a harpy but a very smart and her mind was razor-sharp but her life wasn't a barrel of laughs either. When expat fugitive Jack Cleland watches his girlfriend die, gunned down in a pursuit involving officer Cristina Sanchez Pradell, he promises to exact his revenge by destroying the policewoman. I've had a few people on instagram say they prefer that as it actually helped them speed through the book. . Still, that Dolores should blurt everything out now does not make sense.

And she perfectly demonstrates the strength of a mother's love, even though it may raise many questions about morality and how far we should go to protect those who we love. I thought it was awesome. This is cleverly portrayed with present reality shot in cool blue tones blending seamlessly into flashbacks shot in vivid color. That's not to say that I disliked it. She's 65 years old, her kids are adults and successful and independent, and town society won't let her keep herself to herself. Dolores has spent her life on Little Tall Island. It's the novel of King's that I remember liking the most and it is about a woman who kills her husband because he sexually pursues his own daughter.

Dolores Claiborne (character)

Dolores stephen king

With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms. Dolores reports Joe missing, and his body is found after several days of searching. King found work in the kitchens of Pineland, a nearby residential facility for the mentally challenged. I felt that would be horrible. Vera lived in the same kind of delusional bubble, right? I mean, that would explain why there are no other voices in the narrative. Adults is excruciating, a gut punch of hilarity and an audiobook laden with truth that you will listen to again and again. One of the most important and impressive film scores of Danny Elfman's career, Dolores Claiborne is an often overlooked and grossly under-appreciated score from the maestro.

She has such a strong, believable voice. True enough Kathy Bates played the lead role of Dolores, and Jennifer Jason Leigh played her daughter, and I remember there had been some fanfare around the release of the movie in the mid-90s released in 1995 and both actresses were very familiar to me, but no, I hadn't seen the movie somehow. I can appreciate that King was doing something different and unique here with the narration. We've all met an Umbridge and, more likely than not, they completely got away with their evil and are probably still operating and living a karma-free existence. I managed to reread Dolores Claiborne in under 24 hours. Dolores went to the bank to withdraw her money so she and Selena could flee Joe's abuse. As an elderly woman she suffers a series of strokes and spends the last years of her life in an increasingly addled state, and Dolores' position shifts from housekeeper to caretaker.

To me, that would have made more sense than two stand-alone books with such a tenuous connection. But now, on the eve of victory, the Emperor leaves the front lines, entrusting the great crusade to his favourite son, Horus. I found figure of Dolores well written, neither too exaggerated nor inept poor thing. As Dolores tells her story to the local authorities, the details of a life of drudgery and marital unhappiness emerge, along with the ironic truth behind the deaths. Dolores finally comes to the circumstances of Vera's death, which have led her to tell her story.

Never mind that brat and take my word for this being among the best in the King's amazing catalog. I didn't really find the story to be all that captivating. None of their dialogue is included in the novel, which is presented as a transcript of Dolores' statement, but Dolores frequently addresses them. Dolores Claiborne is an outspoken and strongly opinionated widow of sixty-five working as a housekeeper for Vera Donovan, a wealthy resident of a small island community in Maine. With a star cast including Kenneth Cranham, Eleanor Bron, Brian Cox, Ian MacDiarmid, Anna Chancellor, Hugh Bonneville and Lindsay Duncan, these enthralling dramatisations perfectly capture the atmosphere of le Carré's taut, thrilling spy novels. For him, she will carry a machete strapped to her leg. It is one long continuous story.
