Just finished the book,it was really good. i liked how SK had Dolores telling the story from her point of view and thoughts and feelings,what made it cool was that it was linked to the Geralds game story i thought that was kind of neat. So i give it a two thumbs up.

Delores Claiborne is one of my favorite SK books and one I think is very underrated. It's usually not on alot of folks top ten lists. I love the movie, too. Kathy Bates gives a magnificent turn as Delores. She should have at least been nominated for another Oscar!

I thought Kathy and the guy who played Joe were just brilliant. And the rich old lady actress was very good in her role too. Joe -- well Joe. He was scary and made my skin crawl.

That was the first time I remember seeing the guy that played Joe and I despised him. He showed up a little later in The River Wild with Meryl Streep and I still couldn't get over my loathing of him. Guess that's a sign of a good actor? He was nominated for an Oscar for playing some radio or television man from the '50's a few years later.

Exactly. If someone can really get into your skin like that, then he's done a brilliant job.

IMHO Kathy Bates gave another Oscar-worthy performance as Delores.
