Description

Now a major motion picture starring Ewan McGregor!

From master storyteller Stephen King, his unforgettable and terrifying sequel to The Shining—an instant #1 New York Times bestseller that is “[a] vivid frightscape” (The New York Times).

Years ago, the haunting of the Overlook Hotel nearly broke young Dan Torrance’s sanity, as his paranormal gift known as “the shining” opened a door straight into hell. And even though Dan is all grown up, the ghosts of the Overlook—and his father’s legacy of alcoholism and violence—kept him drifting aimlessly for most of his life. Now, Dan has finally found some order in the chaos by working in a local hospice, earning the nickname “Doctor Sleep” by secretly using his special abilities to comfort the dying and prepare them for the afterlife. But when he unexpectedly meets twelve-year-old Abra Stone—who possesses an even more powerful manifestation of the shining—the two find their lives in sudden jeopardy at the hands of the ageless and murderous nomadic tribe known as the True Knot, reigniting Dan’s own demons and summoning him to battle for this young girl’s soul and survival...

    I enjoyed knowing what happened to Dan Torrence. I didn’t enjoy the plot twists and how predictable the book was. The first half was decent. The second half was boring and made me wish the book was over already. Childish and not scary.
  • Better than expected like usual!!!

    I read the Shinning and then Doctor Sleep as a way to get back into reading since academia ruined the love for me. At some points I liked Doc Sleep more than the Shinning due to character developments. Some parts of Doc Sleep angered me, such as a plot twist near the end of the book that really did nothing for the story or solving the “who is the steamhead” in one sentence. Overall, i loved this book and I am really sad to say goodbye to Danny.

    Very good and interesting book if you were a “The Shining” fan and I certainly was!! It wasn’t my favorite but just like Stephen King books, I couldn’t put it down and just wanted to read and read and read so I will absolutely give it a 4 out of 5 stars 😀
  • Great Sequel

    I never expected a sequel to The Shining and was thrilled when I learned about the release of a sequel. Definitely peaked my interest to pick it up. I enjoyed getting to understand more about what it means to Shine and what exactly can be done with the ability.

    I’ve been attached to Danny Torrance since I first read The Shining at 12-years-old. I don’t want to say goodbye to the man he has become.

    It here are very few books of S kings that I don’t love. Even if I don’t love them I sure do like them a lot. This is one that I’ll read again....and again.
