Read from June 14 to 26, 2011 — I own a copy , read count: 1

Gosh, I thought looking at the copy of this book, this sounds like the last Stephen King book I read, Gerald's Game! Abusive man, abused woman, eclipse. And it was! Kind of! Taking place at the same time as an event in Gerald's Game, with a bit of supernatural-type crossover for a sentence or three.

The book started out interesting and a bit funny with Dolores Claiborne's folksy garsh-shucks narration. Then it set in. The whole book was like this. Non-stop. With no chapters!

All-in-all, typically well-written Stephen King novel. A bit of humor at the beginning before the bad stuff starts happening.

The aforementioned Gerald's Game "crossover" was the best bits for me, but only totaled a few sentences throughout the book. That and the idea of the story happening at the same time as parts of Gerald's Game.

Interesting to read a book with non-stop narrative, and now that I've done it I don't feel the need to try it again.
