Meine Schulter schmerzt und ich kann "die elenden" von Victor Hugo im Bett kaum halten, also musste eine neue Bettlektüre her. Außerdem wurde es eh Mal wieder Zeit für einen King ?

I saw this movie years ago and always liked it. Decided to finally give it a read after finishing Gerald‘s Game, as the two are loosely connected. This is now my 2nd favorite SK book behind Doctor Sleep. Dolores is a badass, and I love the way this story is told. It‘s so good that I‘m considering buying the audiobook and starting it this week! 5⭐️ Highly recommended!!

4thhouseontheleft The movie has such an amazing cast!! I love Kathy Bates in horror movies. Have you seen her in AHS? Her character in the Coven season was crazy. 4w
JenlovesJT47 @4thhouseontheleft yes!! I just watched the movie yesterday and it is brilliant. And she is great on AHS! Her character is so disturbing in Coven but I love her in Freakshow the best ❤️ 4w

You can see King's writing talent in this one. The story is pretty compelling and I read this in 2 days. I didn't really like the character of Delores, but this story if full of unlikeable characters. I also didn't understand the visions about the girl from Gerald's Game. It seemed unnecessary for the story, but I guess it's away to show the interconnectedness of King world.

Well written and interesting, this is a "pick" for me.

BoleyBooks The eclipse. Yes, he does like to align the stories. I loved the IT reference in 11/22/63 too. I loved the dialogue in this one...stuck with me. 👍 7mo

Believe this is a re-read for me. My mom only collected Stephen King when I was young and my Gma read a lot of Danielle Steele. So, those were the two authors I read the most as a teen. I can‘t really remember if I read this back then but it triggered my interest so I picked it up. Can‘t ever go wrong with Stephen King, that‘s for sure!

“Sometimes being a high riding bitch is all a woman has to hold on to.”

This #audiobook was so fun to listen to. Dolores is a hoot, and you‘ll be cheering for her. The narration was great. I don‘t think I would have enjoyed it as much without the audio (King can tend to be long winded, and this is a long one, but with the audio, it just feels like listening to a friend share her life story - I hung on every word).

To label Stephen King as the “King of Horror” is inaccurate. The man writes great American literature, period.

It starts with this great American woman, Dolores Claiborne. She‘s a maid, a suffragette, and a tough mothertrucker. She works her hands to the bones, making an honest living, only to have her man fool her again and again. But Dolores‘ mother didn‘t raise no fool. She raised a hero. If being a bitch is what it takes, so be it. I ❤️ her.

Prairiegirl_reading I totally agree about pigeonholing him into the horror category. It may be true but he‘s more than that! 1y
EricQiao @Prairiegirl_reading Absolutely! The fact that they design the book cover to reflect some kind of spooky tale doesn‘t help the matter, either. 1y
Prairiegirl_reading @EricQiao true, probably designed to appeal to the faithful horror fans even though it‘s not horror at all. 1y

3 books in one day!! (granted I was already halfway through it but still).
I haven't read that many Stephen King books (I think 3 including this one) but I have really enjoyed the authors work. This one wasnt horror at least not in a traditional sense. More like a person facing horrors of life and dealing with it. And I loved the book. It isnt divided into chapters to make it read as a monologue, definitely something new (contd in comment)

kiks The book was addicting even when you were horrified and I loved every moment. Dolores Clairborne is a remarkable woman. She is the kind of well written female characters with spine that we deserve more of. Kudos to Stephen King for another amazing book. 1y

You gotta love Stephen King‘s feel for local dialect. This novel is one long chapter of a woman‘s account of her life under interrogation for murder. While I‘d like a few section breaks to keep a steady pace, I am enjoying the natural flow of the story from start to finish. King probably wrote it over a lunch break. #theking #murder #dialect

H is for Human Nature. Dolores Claiborne is one of my favorite King books. King has an amazing ability to show both the good and the evil of humans. Dolores will do anything in the end to keep her kids from being exposed to her husband's evil ways, even if it means exposing herself to that evil.

Another book in my favourites list! It's not really horror! No supernatural elements..No spooky stuff. It's more like a confession from a woman who killed her husband and is a suspect in her employer's death. It's written like a huge monologue! No chapters! The story is raw and powerful with so many emotions and the way King voices a female protagonist is mind blowing! No one could have done it better!❤ 4.5/5
