Dolores Claiborne

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

DOLORES CLAIBORNE is a film starring Kathy Bates.

From Publishers Weekly

29 November 1993 – King's portrait of a Maine housekeeper accused of her employer's murder--a nine-week PW bestseller--shows him to be a magnificent storyteller.

Customer Reviews

An excellently subtle story.

Don't be fooled, this isn't what Stephen King is famed for with his usual horror style tales. As much as I also love his super natural thrillers etc this is the story of a normal lady living a normal life with the everyday horrors people live with across the world. It is an unusual read in that there are no chapters/paragraphs (in the paperback anyway), it is one continuous text which may put some readers off but as the premise is the main character recalling her life it seems very appropriate. I recommend it wholeheartedly and also recommend Gerald's Game as there is a small connection between the two.

Love it!!!!

Watched the film, read the book, bought the eBook! This is a great book which you will not want to put down. It's about an abused woman, something King hasn't done before which originally got me to read the book and I read it in a day!!!! Well worth adding to any library!!!!!
