Say something about yourself!
This was one of King's better works. I have read several of his titles and this one is better than most, which is saying something. He didn't overload this one with disgusting or vile scenes and it's an edge-of-your-seat plot that keeps you wondering.
A true Georgia Peach! Love reading but it's hard to find the time so I am a huge fan of audiobooks.
Great. Gripping. Imaginative.
Learning about Danny Boy as an adult and how he learned to cope with the tragedies from his childhood. I liked the references to the Shining, the fact that Doc was in this book, and I really loved Abra and how everything comes full circle for Dan.
Will brought the characters to life and added intensity to the story.
this book keep me rooting for the good guys and so thrilled every time one of the bad ones got theirs ! I cant imagine anyone else on this planet doing a better job as narrator ! I will be looking for more books told by Will Patton !
yes! but I wanted to make it last ..
I love that Mr. Steven King puts such real life in all his characters and how Will Patton brought them to life ! I love my audio books !!
Stephen King has done it again. Great job! I couldn't stop listening.
Would love to see a movie of it.
masterful narration, clever
Dan Torrence is a flawed human being who is hitting the bottom and soar to the top.
Will Patton key to the success of this audiobook. He used so many distinct different voice personalities that I listened to it twice.
I remember Abra because I keep thinking that Stephen King may have to rekindle her for a follow up
I don't like spooky, unnatural vampire movies and books. Why did I like this so much?
If you've never read The Shining, read it a dozen or more years ago, or have only seen the movie, get a copy of The Shining and devour it before starting this one. You won't be sorry and this awesome and creepy story will have that much more dimension for you.
I didn't read it only listened to it...but i can imagine reading it was even close to listening
i was on the edge of my seat for the whole book
The Shining was one of only a few books I had not read by Stephen King. So, I bought the Kindle book and read it before I listened to Doctor Sleep. The stories compliment each other very well in ways that I cannot explain without spoiling the fun. Doctor Sleep is a much more exciting story. It's not as dark and brooding as The Shining. Stephen King is only getting better with age. Great characters, great story, and a perfect ending!
Kudos to Will Patton for a wonderful narration full of unique and character fitting voices.
The Shining was the first Stephen King novel I read. Years later I traveled to Colorado and saw a place like The Overlook in the mountains and read The Shining again on the trip home. Picking up this book was like visiting with an old friend after not seeing them for a very long time.
It's prequel The Shining. The Shining and some of his earlier books was Stephen King writing at his best. In the last ten years he has written Under the Dome, 11-22-63 and Doctor Sleep and it is like Sherman set the WayBack machine and we have younger Stephen King writing again. I love the characters in this book, specifically Danny now Dan Torrance.
Dan Torrance. Hands down. He was so real. Beautifully flawed and human. Abra Stone who was such a wonderful reminder of little Danny Torrance.
Mr. King's last three books have given me an even greater regard for him as an author. I will admit I stopped reading him around Rose Madder, but picked him up again with Under The Dome and it is like reuniting with an old friend. Not only have I enjoyed the three books mentioned earlier but also his wonderful Joyland.
