Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Shining stands as one of horror's masterpieces. Over 35 years later, we now get its sequel. Is it worth the wait? Well, to be fair I didn't quite wait 35 years, but I have waited a long time, and yes, it was definitely worth the wait!

In those 35 years both Stephen King and (most of) his audience have matured. This is not the tense, claustrophobic horror-thriller that The Shining was. In fact, I actually don't think it's as scary. But it's just as good. King's writing is just spot on. Danny, as a character, is really captivating. The rest of the support cast is spot on and the plot really is gripping. I can't say too much without giving away important plot elements, but I can say that it involves a few King staples: an alcoholic with special abilities, a child with even better abilities, and a story of redemption.

Is there horror in it? Yes. Some of the nasty elements are nasty, especially early on. Is there violence? Yes. Gore? Yes. But it's all presented in a masterful way so that it's not overwhelming. In fact, this book is almost an adventure story rather than a horror story. More Robert E Howard than HP Lovecraft. And this book, like Joyland, draws primarily on its characters. The setting is a combination of the usual NE US and the old Overlook hotel, but as always King paints each scene with such vivid words that it almost feels like you're walking beside the characters in the story.

So why five stars? Well first, I couldn't put the book down and had to read it in a day. That's always a very good sign.

One of the best sequels ever... My only regret is that Steve can't write as fast as I can read!

There was a period of time following his accident that lovers of Stephen King held our collective breaths. It seemed to be difficult for him to get back into his former ease of writing. Over the past few years, he's calmed these fears with amazing works like Duma Key, or Under the Dome. While I don't think that Doctor Sleep meets these titles in their originality and just plain uniqueness - but it's definitely a solid offering by an author who knows his audience, his voice, and what he wants to say. I won't go into any of the story itself, but if you're a King fan, you'll enjoy it. As an added bonus, the back cover is some of the best cover art I've seen in a while. Very creepy indeed!

By one of the best. Didn't disappoint but then how could he? Answers questions I had left from reading the Shining such a long time ago.

Very excellent. Makes you wish you had some of The Shining.... Maybe you do.
Embrace it all, while you can still get your arms around it.

I held a bit of trepidation with King writing a follow up after so many years - but I buried my trepidation by reaching page fifteen.
I can well imagine a TV movie is already in the works, like so many other King's novel.
Definitely a worthwhile read - guaranteed no disappointment!
