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.
Good to meet an old friend again
Well cut out characters
The villain is also given enough “screen time”
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
I personally liked the book but not as much as THE SHINING. A riveting book nonetheless.SK fans don’t miss this one.
