DOCTOR SLEEP BY STEPHEN KING

index

This highly anticipated sequel to the iconic THE SHINING could be a hit or a miss depending on your liking or expectations. Reading the shinning isn’t necessary to understand this book

STUFF ON THE BACKCOVER SAYS

Stephen King returns to the character and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals

PLOT IN SHORT

Danny Torrance is now Doctor Sleep. The story follows a now adult Dan a rootless alcoholic who  reaches a town called Fraizer and settles in a job that best enables him to use his gift. Then comes Abra Stone and her extremely powerful ‘shinning’ which attracts The True Knot which are Stephen King’s versions of vampires. The story of good vs evil ensues which will leave you with a satisfied end.

THE GOOD

Good to meet an old friend again

Well cut out characters

The villain  is also given enough “screen time”

THE BAD

If you came for another hotel horror story you will be disappointed

The villain isn’t scary enough

More of a super natural thriller than a out and out horror story

MY THOUGHTS

I personally liked the book but not as much as THE SHINING. A riveting book nonetheless.SK fans don’t miss this one.

My Ratings

4.5/5
