About the book

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Ewan McGregor!

An epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted readers of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

Following a childhood haunted by terrifying events at the Overlook Hotel, Danny Torrance has been drifting for decades.

Finally, he settles into a job at a nursing home where he draws on his remnant 'shining' power to help people pass on.

Then he meets Abra Stone, a young girl with the brightest 'shining' ever seen. But her gift is attracting a tribe of paranormals. They may look harmless, old and devoted to their Recreational Vehicles, but The True Knot live off the 'steam' that children like Abra produce.

Now Dan must confront his old demons as he battles for Abra's soul and survival...


Read Review   Want to write a review?
This is the master on top form, drawing his readers in with his amazing storytelling power - first with the tension, then with the richness and details of the scene-setting and characterisation.
This brilliant sequel....King [is] a genius at transforming the ordinary into the utterly horrific...
For the truth is, there are few writers who have such a way with character (and that character delivered through authorial peeks into thought and feeling, is so important in his books)...Once his stories get their hooks into you, they're impossible to put down....The denouement of the novel takes place in autumn, and that's no coincidence. You can practically smell the leaf piles burning, their fragrant smoke mixed with that of funeral pyres.
...the novel's deepest shiverings depend on no made-up devils.
King still remains the daddy of them all.
It still grips, just differently than the original.
Suspenseful, thrilling and packed with twists....an incredibly sincere piece of writing.
Both an excellent sequel to The Shining and a strong novel in its own right, this is one of King's best books in the last decade.
King is too skilled a storyteller for Doctor Sleep to be anything other than unputdownable.
Doctor Sleep has a tightness, an economy, after some of the lengthier novels of recent years, but also a lightness of touch. It reads less like a horror novel than a thriller and ends on a scene of intimate and intense human contact, a gift of consolation at the moment of death.
the book remains hopeful and hugely humane.
highly anticipated sequel to his bestselling 1977 novel The Shining.
A magnificent sequel to one of the finest horror yarns written....Brilliant.
Terrifying and, as always, brilliantly-crafted tale, you won't be left wanting. But you may be left scared.
Stephen King's frightscapes are among the most incredible in literature, yet one believes in them unquestioningly.
King has written a sequel, the tale of what happened to little Danny when he grew up. Need one say more? It cannot fail...the best thing to emerge from King's glittering, warped imagination is of mundane, small-town America corrupted by hidden forces...you cannot but respect his ruthless expertise as a storyteller...even those of us who would never freely pick up a Stephen King must genuflect to a master.
Thirty-six years on from his horror classic, THE SHINING, Stephen King's sequel shows he still has plenty of creative steam.
Doctor Sleep is a warm, entertaining novel by a man who is no longer the prisoner of his demons, but knows where to find them when he needs to call on them.
King finds a mode of the supernatural that has a melancholic beauty while avoiding spiritualist blather
It's a gripping, powerful novel, all the more so for being patently heartfelt.
Doctor Sleep is King expertly returning to the milieu of his most beloved novels, combining not just elements from the original Shining but themes and imagery familiar from King's books, including Carrie, Salem's Lot, Firestarter and It. It also has a structure King has often utilised before, with a group of essentially good people having to band against a gang of baddies but within this structure King works masterful variations, showing just with a brilliant storyteller he is. When King is on form, as he is in Doctor Sleep, he has no rivals for sheer page-turning suspense. It is as addictive as anything he has written: a triumph from the world's finest horror novelist.
King is a very remarkable and singular writer. He can catch dialogue, throw away an observation or mint a simile, sometimes, brilliantly...Storytelling is everything - and by golly does he know how to carry the reader.
A gripping, powerful novel, all the more so for being patently heartfelt
All the virtues of his best work
King finds a mode of the supernatural that has a melancholic beauty

A powerful sequel to The Shining

King's own supplies of creative steam show little sign of being depleted.
