Staff Reviews


Do you ever wonder what happened to little Danny Torrance from The Shining? I know I did, & luckily for us, so did Stephen King. After years spent dampening his shining with booze, Danny is now sober and using his abilities to help others. Life is pretty good until a twelve-year old girl named Abra, with shining stronger than his ever was, needs his help. He must face foes far stronger and ominous than any at the Overlook Hotel all those years ago, and it’s up to Danny and Abra to try and stop them. This is Stephen King at his best. I could not put this book down starting at page 1. You will not be disappointed. One of the best books of 2013.

Description


Winner of the 2014 Audie Award for Fiction and Finalist for Solo Narration—Male

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...
