Stephen Kings Doctor Sleep

A magnificent sequel to one of the finest horror yarns written. . . Brilliant. (Daily Express)

Highly anticipated sequel to his bestselling 1977 novel The Shining. (Daily Express Saturday Mag)

Stephen Kings Doctor Sleep is an epic tale of good versus evil. Nothing new   for a Stephen King book there then, but what has been grabbing the     attention of King fans, even more than usual, is that Doctor Sleep is a return   to the world of Danny Torrance; a sequel to The Shining.

King said that he wanted to know what happened to Danny, the kid on the tricycle, after his terrifying ordeal at the Overlook Hotel and Doctor Sleep provides the answer by picking up with Danny’s story, now that he is middle  aged and working in a hospice in New Hampshire.

Now known as Dan and still haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel, the now middle aged man has been drifting for decades through the legacy of his father’s alcoholism and violence until he eventually settles in New Hampshire. Dan cleans himself up with, with help from an Alcoholics Anonymous community and gets a job at a local hospice where, what’s left of his ‘shining’ powers help him to give comfort to the dying.
