Description

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Ewan McGregor!

From master storyteller Stephen King, his unforgettable and terrifying sequel to The Shining—an instant #1 New York Times bestseller that is “[a] vivid frightscape” (The New York Times).

Years ago, the haunting of the Overlook Hotel nearly broke young Dan Torrance’s sanity, as his paranormal gift known as “the shining” opened a door straight into hell. And even though Dan is all grown up, the ghosts of the Overlook—and his father’s legacy of alcoholism and violence—kept him drifting aimlessly for most of his life. Now, Dan has finally found some order in the chaos by working in a local hospice, earning the nickname “Doctor Sleep” by secretly using his special abilities to comfort the dying and prepare them for the afterlife. But when he unexpectedly meets twelve-year-old Abra Stone—who possesses an even more powerful manifestation of the shining—the two find their lives in sudden jeopardy at the hands of the ageless and murderous nomadic tribe known as the True Knot, reigniting Dan’s own demons and summoning him to battle for this young girl’s soul and survival...

    A sequel that lives up to prequel. You’ll want to read this if you loved the shinning.

    Hands down one of the best books I’ve read! It’s not the sequel you would expect to the shining but it is COMPLETELY worth the read. It’ll have you at the edge of your seat from the first page until the last. I’m never going to be able to look at a RV the same again! Moral of this review, buy the book you seriously won’t regret it!
  • Perfect sequel to The Shining!!

    By my opinions and i
    I have always been wary of audiobooks because I'm very picky about the narrator. But let me say that Will Patton did this novel so much justice that I went out and bought the other Stephen King books narrated by him. The combination of Patton's voice and King's imagination led this novel to becoming one of my favorite. I very highly recommend this audiobook.
  • Stephen King is incredible.

    What happened to Stephen King? This book is so see through, boring, and rushed. I mean, who didn't see that ending coming!? Though I didn't expect it to be as anticlimactic as is was. Yawn... The characters are forgetful. I didn't really care who lived or died, I just wanted it to be over. And what's with all the Alchoholics Anonymous? It's throughout the entire book. He's a drunk, we get it. This book should've never happened...
