I have been a Stephen King fan since I was first introduced to his books over 25 years ago. This book was never one of my favorites because it lacks the in-your-face horror and strangeness of most of his other books. I also found the movie adaptation of the book somewhat boring. All that changed when I heard Frances Sternhagen's oral version of the book. She reads with gusto and nails Dolores' down east accent and idioms. I now fully appreciate King's development of his character. King is a skilled writer and Sternhagen brings Dolores Claiborne to life! The audio version is absolutely fantastic! Thus, having learned the error of my previous judgement, I also give the print version 5 stars. It is a work of literature - not pulp fiction.
