Dolores, I would like you to meet Gerald and Gerald, this is Dolores

  • Jan 15, 2000
Pros: good read

Cons: none noticeable

Oh what a tangled web we weave .... King you are a friggin master. If you don't know what I am referring to then you haven't read both these books. In fact, probably for some time this sly fox has been playing this game with us but it is most noticeable in the Dolores Claiborne/Gerald's Game set up.

Dolores, a brow beaten, no self esteem, why am I alive, lady is married to the snake of the world. But Dolores has just a tad of backbone hiding deep inside. Dolores also has strange flashes that she doesn't understand.

Gerald is a fatboy naysayer of the lowest form that enjoys little games with his darling wife. Unfortunately the best game became the last game and wifey dear is in a bad way and she has strange flashes she doesn't understand.

It doesn't matter which way you read these books, they tie into each other in Kingly fashion. Oh he is a sly fellow.

Dolores in the end redeems her small dignity and even if no one in the town (Maine must be pleased as punch with all their portrayals) ever believes her, she feels vindicated. I hate to tell you what happens if you haven't read the book because that of course is the idea of reading a book. Just trust me in saying ... you won't fully understand ALL of Dolores Claiborne unless you also read Gerald's Game and visa versa.

And what was that kids name in Insomnia? Tsk, tsk Mr. King! I am on to you.
