I want to love this book, but I cant. I like it... At times it fell short with far fetching conclusions of ideas. Its almost like King had a flash of brilliance and them couldnt figure out how it exactly ties into the overall story or if it should almost be a different book... Still a fan Mr. King!
Loved it. As a fan of the shining it was great to get to know Dan and his "shine" once more.
It was a little slow at times but Will Pattons performance was excellent and held me glued to my earphones during my workdays.
Minus the super hero finally, I liked it a lot. I was happy to hear about Doc and his life after The Overlook Hotel.
As a sequel to one of King's best novels, this book had some serious factors working against it. The Shining is a legendary book, and Doctor Sleep needed to not only be good, but also needed to make sure it did not diminish the greatness of its predecessor. My expectations for this book were not only met, but exceeded. Doctor Sleep provides closure for its characters and is a cathartic experience for the listener.
Will Patton seems to understand that many of the characters are people who have lived difficult lives, and that comes through exceptionally well in his reading.
I was (pleasantly) surprised at how quickly Doctor Sleep moves. The Shining is a slower-paced story that involves a considerable amount of inner-monologue from Jack Torrance, and I expected Doctor Sleep to be similarly paced, but it is a story that moves like a full-steam locomotive.
I loved this book it explains alot and it has an awesome ending it's a newer classic I love Dan he's such a good flawed hero in the book just like everyone with our flaws love it awesome book
Loved this book. Will Patton telling a Stephen King story is the BEST! And loved finding out the rest of The Shining story!!
I was a little skeptical about a sequel being worth the read because they seldom are. I was mistaken with Doctor Sleep and so excited that I was! I loved every avenue that Stephen King took Dan Torrance!! How about sterility featuring Abra!?!?!
