Finally got around to reading this when I saw there was an upcoming film adaptation. It was gripping. Maybe not King‘s “scariest,” but it adds a ton of lore to the psychic concepts introduced in The Shining and was genuinely unnerving at times. It also had a nostalgic quality as we are reintroduced to Dan Torrance all these years later.

Oh my, I don't even know where to begin with this one! I didn't expect it to end the way it did and I didn't expect to love this book as much as I did. It had me on the edge of my feet the entire time! Being a huge Stephen King fan, I went into thinking it wasn't going to be that great because of how great The Shining was. But boy was I wrong! This book is easily in my top 5 favorite books.

Mehso-so

We peer into the life of Danny and the effects “the shining “ has had on him. He struggles with alcoholism and with past memories . The villains are interesting, but they are not justified in the end. That‘s one of the reasons I didn‘t like the ending. It has a lot of build up ,but it was not satisfying for me. I would recommend it if you liked The Shining, and want to see what happens next.

LittleHummingbird Would you recommend it for someone who's never read Stephen King novels? 4mo
TrishB @LittleHummingbird this is a follow up to The Shining and you really need to read that to get the background to this one. Do you like fantasy, horror or thrillers? As King writes all of these and may be easier to recommend one. 4mo
LittleHummingbird @TrishB I see! I do like fantasy and horror. I'm not too familiar with his work. What would you recommend? 4mo
TrishB For horror I would recommend ‘Salem‘s Lot, It, Pet Sematary and Needful Things. For more fantasy based, The Stand, The Dark Tower series (maybe save until you‘ve decided whether you like his writing!) and the Green Mile. Misery and the Mr Mercedes trilogy are more like traditional thrillers. Every King fan has their favs, these are all generally mine. 4mo
TrishB @LittleHummingbird forgot to tag above! 4mo
LittleHummingbird @TrishB thank you for your recommendations! I'll check them out😁 4mo

I thought this was a a great read, it's got A lot going on throughout the book. I wasn't so sure about the True Knot part of the book at first , but I think it worked later on in the book. I was curious what happened to Danny after i read the shining, and I this this book was really good way to show what Danny's been doing in his adult life with the shine. I really liked the ending, it shows how things come around full circle.

Doctor Sleep was actually my first Stephen King novel. I picked up Doctor Sleep on a whim one day while browsing a bookstore. I had no idea this was a sequel to The Shining, so you can imagine I was a bit lost reading it. I absolutely loved this book and couldn‘t put it down I was extremely happy with my spontaneous purchase. Doctor Sleep is definitely on my re-read shelf it‘s been years since I read it!

I absolutely loved the book! I loved learning about where Doc‘s life ended up! I enjoyed all the twists and little surprises! I cried, I laughed and got angry at this book! I had such a hatred for the True Knot and actually cheered whenever one of them died! I was so invested in the story that I thought about the book when I wasn‘t reading it and dreamed of it at night. I loved the character archetypes found in this book!

I loved this book - actually more than The Shining (I went there 😁)
I like The Shining but think it got totally over shadowed by the film, which I don‘t like. I don‘t think Jack Nicholson‘s portrayal of Jack portrays the character as in the book.
Anyway - love the return of Danny in Dr Sleep 🖤

KathyWheeler I also liked Doctor Sleep better than The Shining. I usually list it as one of my favorite SK books. 11mo

King did a great job with this sequel to The Shining. It is definitely different from the first in many ways. But it is amazing all the same. Dan is a man now but his past still follows him everywhere. I'm glad I was able to pick this up and not put it down!
