Dolores Claiborne is suspected of killing Vera Donovan, her wealthy employer, and when the police question her, she tells the story of her life, harkening back to her disintegrating marriage and the suspicious death of her violent husband 30 years earlier. Dolores also tells of Vera's physical and mental decline and how she became emotionally demanding in recent years.
Given a voice as compelling as any in contemporary fiction, the strange intimacy between Dolores and Vera - and the link that binds them - unfolds in Dolores' account. Dolores Claiborne is "a literary triumph. The finest of King novels...a plot of enormous energy.... Read this book." (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

This is a perfect audible. The story is compelling and nail biting at times. The performance by Francis Sternhagen is stunning. She is Dolores Claiborne. The Audio quality and small sound effects are great. You could hear a pin drop in the room.
You truly feel like one of the people in the room with her.
I highly recommend this book.

Would you listen to Dolores Claiborne again? Why?
Ok, I've seen Delores Claiborne the movie so many times I can't even count. It's one of my favorite movies. I finally decided to listen to the book and it was brilliant.
What did you like best about this story?
I love that it was different from the movie and I love that they took really great elements from the book to create the movie. I think they did a great job on the movie's interpretation of the book. The book's performance was just so riveting and fun and haunting.
Have you listened to any of Frances Sternhagen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Frances Sternhagen performance is the best, she really made the story come alive. I've never listened to her before (I don't think) but her performance really held your attention and she really does an amazing job.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I'm not the same as the book but I'm just as brilliant.
Any additional comments?
LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!
