Doctor Sleep (The Shining, #2)Doctor Sleep by Stephen King

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a excellent sequel. I rarely say that!

I always wondered what happened to Danny Torrance and his mother after the Overlook Hotel burned to the ground and now I know.

This is Stephen King at some of his best and for the first time since reading (and re-reading) The Shinning when I was 14 I finally feel like it’s over and not really the way I expected.

If you enjoy a good paranormal ghost story this is the book for you. It is very different from the Shinning in many ways but ties up the story neatly, though there seems to be one or two possibilities for a good follow up because now I need to know what happens, in the long run, with Abra and what’s left of the True Knot. Revenge seems eminent, should any of the have survived.
