I remember having some time before an appointment stopping by the bookstore; my life was very complicated at the time and I was very distracted. There in the very front of the store was a display of Dolores Claiborne! What a surprise for me, I had not heard of a new King book!! I grabbed it up and soon devoured the story. This book with its strong heroine, Dolores, proved those lousy critics that said that Mr. King did not know how to write women were wrong, wrong, wrong. The movie was one of my favorites too, not too much variation from Mr. King's words either.
