This caught you in its web from the first sentence to the last. the books story unfolded easily but still full of surprises.
The Narrator was FANTASTIC ! I COULDNT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN.
PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET IT. You wont be sorry.
A mature King writes of a mature Day Torrence while paying subtle homage to his own son's work.. This will be a classic
I didn't put it down. I'm going to get the original shining audiobook, listen to that one, and then listen to this one again.
Don't miss this one! Will Patton is the BEST! Definitely a little weird at first, but hey - it IS Stephen King. But it all comes together and then you can't stop listening.
I am really surprised at the high ratings everyone is giving this book. I am an avid King reader and this just does not stack up. Is it well written? Yes, because King is a masterful craftsman. Sadly, it's the story that disappoints. The heroine is too powerful and the bad guy too weak so it just ain't interesting. The best part of the story is the exploration of alcoholism. That is VERY well done. The rest, compared to what we know King can produce, is bland.
What an amazing follow up to The Shining!!! Of course if you never read The Shining you should most definitely start with that first, no watching the movie doesn't count it isn't the same story. Stephen King is and will always be one of my favorite authors!!
To get the full experience you must read or listen to The Shining before tackling Doctor Sleep. The Shining movie doesn't dovetail into this book. The book blows the movie away.. Not a dig at the movie. Book just provided more time for character development.
