This is only the second to my knowledge of King's books that uses a mostly single narrative, sort of stream of consciousness style, meaning that there are no segments or chapters, no breaks in the narrative at all.
Dolores is telling her story, and she means to do it straight through. Which is fine, and in this type of format it works, because the whole story is told from her perspective, in her way.
There is a sort of add-on epilogue chapter that's outside of her narrative, but, honestly I think it would be just fine without it.
The other book of King's to use this style is Cujo, and there it DOESN'T work in my opinion , because Cujo is a story that jumps around and changes perspective and focus quite frequently, so it would actually benefit from being segmented.
In both cases, though, it does feel like he's experimenting, trying something new with the narrative that he hasn't done before. Cujo is told in 3rd person omniscient style, as if an outsider is just following all of the relevant pieces to show the reader and give the full story, but doesn't ever take coffee breaks, so you I hope you peed before you started because we ain't stopping this ride.
Dolores tells her story in first person, so we are literally only seeing that which she decides to show us, and once she starts talking, she doesn't stop until the story is told Lemme 'splain.
Dolores is basically giving a deposition, and the story she tells is being recorded by a stenographer as her testimony regarding the suspicious death of her employer.
Where it seems a little off is that we literally ONLY hear Dolores' voice. When the police or investigators interrupt, or ask questions, or when ANYONE else speaks, there's nothing to indicate them at all, except Dolores's reply.
Which is weird. It's sort of using that dialogue-as-narrative trick that I hate, but in a different way. My point is that I'm not sure whether we're supposed to feel like we're reading her deposition transcript, or if we're in the room with her as she's giving it, or if we're in her head.
If it's either of the first two options, then I would expect for all of the conversation to be represented Though, actually, typing that out has made me think of this story in a different way We'll come back to this.
Anyway, so narrative structure aside for the moment , let's move on. So, Dolores is being questioned because everyone in town thinks that she killed her employer, because everyone in town is pretty sure that she killed her husband thirty years ago and got away with it.
Knowing that she's in a pretty tight spot, she decides to 'fess up, and tells the story of how, and why, she did in fact kill her husband, and how her bosslady came to be dead, but that it wasn't murder.
Dolores says that every story has layers. There's the story that's on top, for all the world to see, or see what they want or expect to see, and then somewhere buried underneath is the truth.
Her story, and this book, is like that. We can take Dolores at face value, and trust that what she's saying is the truth.
At this point, what other option does she have but to come clean? She's 65 years old, her kids are adults and successful and independent, and town society won't let her keep herself to herself It's easy to want to take her at her word.
She shows us how she's lived a hard life, with an abusive, semi-alcoholic husband, three kids, a plethora of hard, manual labor jobs, the primary of which is for a woman who fires other maids when the wind blows.
She shows us that she's skimped and saved and sacrificed to try to give her kids a better life than she ended up with. She shows us that she doesn't shy away from hard work or hard decisions She shows us that she's willing to put up with a lot She found her line in the sand.
Now, in that situation, I maybe might've jumped straight to Googling "how to clean human blood out of a woodchipper" But, no, Dolores is a better woman than I.
She went a different way and just tried to stop the situation first by confronting him, with an escape route Plan B But life has a way of fucking you over, and Dolores is no fool.
Her daughter would never be safe with him, and that's Dolores's primary goal. It's easy to understand that kind of motivation. And my summary doesn't do it justice Her version is comprehensive and compelling.
Mine is like a stick figure drawing next to her Mona Lisa. It's easy to believe and agree with her story, and that he needed to die, and that she did, really, the only thing that she could've in that situation, in that time, in that community, that would guarantee her daughter never had to worry about waking up in the middle of the night with daddy standing next to her bed with his hands where they should not be.
You don't confess to a 30 year old murder, even the kind that was ostensibly necessary to protect your family, lightly. She did so to show that she has nothing to hide, and to lend credence to her claim that she didn't kill her boss.
But of course, that's assuming that Dolores is telling the truth. We only get her perspective. There's no interviewing anyone else, like her daughter, to ask if any of the claims Dolores made were true, there's no investigation, nothing.
The story, from start to finish except the epilogue is whatever she wants us to believe. It all sounds plausible, and believable.
It all sounds justifiable. But we really don't know. She could have killed him for any number of reasons. He called her ugly one too many times, or she was tired of cleaning the skidmarks out of his underwear, or she just was tired of looking at his stupid face.
It could be anything. And since she got away with it for 30 years, there's been plenty of time for the truth's edges to wear down and become whatever she wants them to be.
Of course, the 3rd option is that none of this is real and she's as nutty as squirrel poop and making up all of it, the murders, the deposition, all of it.
I mean, that would explain why there are no other voices in the narrative She's talking to herself, and we get to be privy to only the one side of the conversation.
This option makes complete sense when you think about it. Vera lived in the same kind of delusional bubble, right? She was "estranged" from her kids, and made up all sorts of reasons why they never came to see her, to the point where she believed them herself.
It's not so far-fetched for Dolores to have done the same, only with her reasons for killing her husband, and then her boss I don't really believe that option 3 is realistic, though.
For one, there's not really anything that's a plausible enough candidate for her to have snapped and lost touch with reality, the way that Vera did.
Secondly, we know that at least part of the tale is true, because the epilogue features a snippet of news about part of Vera's will endowment.
So I guess it can't really all be in her head, but wouldn't it have been fun? Serious, stoic, plodding, and resolute Dolores being all bats in the belfry.
But no. But still, who's to say she's not completely sane and rational and playing all of us for fools? She makes a compelling argument, but we don't HAVE to believe her just on the basis of her word Who am I kidding, I believe her.
The story sucks otherwise, because it's meaningless if it's all just a bunch of lies, rather than the love of a mother doing what she had to do.
OK, moving on! This book was released in but most of it takes place in , and it definitely FEELS like it.
There was just a general sexism that hung over the whole narrative - from the role that Dolores felt was hers to take on as mother, wife, cook, cleaning lady, etc, on top of working hour days as well, because it was expected, to the attitudes of men, specifically the bank manager, acting like women are incapable of practicality or sense at all, and therefore aren't worthy of thought or consideration regarding decisions.
Though, I guess there are men who still think that. The scene in the bank was so frustrating to me, because poor Dolores was optionless and stuck, and it was just so maddeningly ingrained sexist bureaucratic bullshit.
But Dolores being Dolores, she took it in stride and started to make her Plan C. It's just so shitty that women were considered so trivial that she didn't even warrant a single phone call to inform her of the change to the account that she was co-owner of.
Not a single thought that maybe she might be interested in what's happening with the thousands of dollars in her kids' savings accounts.
Maddening to have so little control over your own life and money and freedom. Also, this is the reason that I don't have joint bank accounts with ANYONE.
Speaking of the kids, it was much easier for me to see and understand the relationships or lack thereof between Dolores and her kids. Everything that she did was for them.
She broke her back day in and day out for them, to try to give them a better life and better opportunity, and at every turn something was there to trip her up, and most of the times that thing was named Joe.
Selena in particular, being the oldest and the only girl, was especially easy for me to identify with this read through.
Having been the oldest, and only girl, and the benefit of having lived through my teen years and now being eye to eye with Dolores age wise it's so much easier to see their relationship and all of the ways that it was dysfunctional.
Selena needs a mother, but what she has is a housekeeper doing rounds in her house as well as a dozen others. So it's easy to see how Joe could take advantage of Selena's confusion and fear regarding her mother, and twist that into something he can use to his own selfish, depraved advantage.
Dolores says paraphrasing : "All I wanted to do is make him stop, and I risked my life to do it, but she didn't see none of that.
Everything she saw was stacked up on his side of the ledger. And Selena, having seen her mom standing over Joe with a hatchet in hand believed it.
I can't even imagine what that would be like, and it makes me appreciate the scene on the ferry so much more, because poor Selena was like a cornered cat, terrified and lashing out, but Dolores took it all, as she takes everything, and her persistence and patience and calmness won out and Selena was able to unburden herself.
What a relief it must have been for her. This book and Gerald's Game were both released the same year, and are tied together by the father molestation storyline, as well as the solar eclipse.
In a way, these two books can kind of be seen as alternate versions of the molestation. One, where the abuse is found out and stopped, and one where the girl has nobody to protect her.
Dolores is somehow able to see Jessie being molested by her father during the eclipse maybe the eclipse opened a thinny or perhaps formed a link between her and Jessie?
The only problem with that is that old wells don't make good murder weapons. I'm glad that I re-read this book as an adult, because I got so much more out of it this time around.
I don't know if this is my favorite portrayal of a female main character from King, honestly that might have to be Lisey Landon She's a trooper.

I was new to Stephen King back then Dolores Claiborne is basically a confession of a woman named by the title, to the police after being accused of killing her employer Vera Donavan.
Although she didn't kill Vera, she did confess the things she's been through past 30 years of being with her that was buried deep under herself all this time.
This novel is full of fast paced suspense with a This novel was under the further reading section of Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn which lured me to buy it.
This novel is full of fast paced suspense with an enthralling premise. There are no chapters, and it's more or less written as a huge monologue.
Dolores is one of the strongest character I have come across. It's was so depressing at the same time infuriating to think of the things she's been through and the way she dealt with it was completely remarkable.
As she say it, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. The way King voices woman characters is commendable, be it a teenage girl or a savage old woman, King is the best when it comes to writing powerful and complex characters.
Highly recommended to those who love suspense and thrillers with spine chilling background! Shelves: movie , concierge , maine , audio , strong-women , library , favorite.
Her employer of 40 years has died in a tragic accident … or did Dolores kill her? King is a master plotter and he moves the story along at a fair clip.
Slowing down at just the right places to let the reader catch his breath. Scaring you the next minute with the horrors of human meanness.
Making you laugh at the ridiculous things people do. Dolores has spent her life on Little Tall Island. But you need to get the whole story straight from Dolores.
I first read this in And the audio book, narrated by Frances Sternhagen, is nothing short of wonderful! Dolores will stay with you for a long time.
King has managed to write a character who is not very likable, but whom I just fell in love with. View all 3 comments. Dec 25, Erin rated it really liked it Shelves: movie , king-me , december Dolores Claiborne is weird little book.
I don't quite know how to explain it. First it has no chapters or page breaks. It's more of extra long monologue, than a novel.
Dolores Claiborne has had a hard life. She married a drunk who couldn't keep a job, when she was 18 years old because she was pregnant. She's spent the last almost 40 years working as a housekeeper for a very wealthy and mean old lady.
She's estranged from her kids. She's just not a very happy person. The novel consists of Dolores Dolores Claiborne is weird little book.
The novel consists of Dolores Claiborne sitting in a police station telling the police her life story. Why is she telling the police her life story?
Because they think she murdered the mean old lady she worked for. Why do they think that? Because the whole town thinks she murdered her husband 30 years earlier.
This book isn't a horror novel but the subject matter is horrifying. Its Stephen King so ALL THE TRIGGER WARNINGS! This book is DARK! Its a hard book to read at times.
Stephen King creates such an alive and vivid world solely through Dolores' words. Despite the fact that Dolores is simply talking us through her life, I could see and feel every experience she described.
This book really surprised me. I enjoyed much more than expected. I only read Dolores Claiborne because I heard it was a kind of companion book to Gerald's Game and I wanted to know how they were connected.
I'm glad I read this book and I look forward to watching the movie View 2 comments. I read this in almost one day. If you're an audiobook type of person, I highly recommend the audiobook version for this one.
The book has a lot of dialect that the narrator absolutely nailed. This story all takes place as Dolores Claiborne is being questioned for the death of her wealthy boss, but instead confesses to killing her husband during an eclipse several years earlier.
There is some great production where you can hear coffee being poured and small things like that. It made the experienc I read this in almost one day.
It made the experience very immersive. This was a great, quick read and Dolores is quite a character. This one has it's obvious connections to Gerald's Game, and it's quite different from a usual King book.
Middle of the pack King book, for me. I can appreciate that King was doing something different and unique here with the narration.
He was definitely taking himself out of his own comfort zone. And in King fashion, he pulled it off surprise surprise.
I think this narrative style could have been a complete disaster if it wasn't a pro doing the work Middle of the pack King book, for me.
I think this narrative style could have been a complete disaster if it wasn't a pro doing the work. I did, however, find it a bit difficult to read at times, if only briefly.
That's probably just a result of not being used to reading something where the first-person narration is Claiborne-esque. I don't know any other way of describing the voice other than "Claiborne-esque.
But I'll chalk that up to Claiborne's voice itself and not King. Unfortunately, Jennifer Jason Leigh, a genuinely gifted actor, is saddled with a part that forces her to play within the confines of a tortured soul, making her performance come off as forced and unconvincing, meanwhile Kathy Bates once again fills the screen with her powerful presence, delivering what has to be one of her best performances.
The story takes place in cold Maine weather that is so effective that it almost makes you want to put a jacket on, and in a house that is so gray and lifeless and empty that after watching the movie I had to go to the supermarket and buy a steak.
That may not make sense, but here's something that does, the characters in this movie are so well rounded that it almost seems like a documentary.
Definitely worth checking out, even if you're living so far in the past that you still rent from Hollywood Video and pay their late fees.

Selena hat schon lange den Verdacht, dass ihre Mutter ihren Vater getötet hat, und will nun endlich die Wahrheit hören.
