Doctor Sleep

In Doctor Sleep, Stephen King revisits some of his most famous and beloved characters from his classic of suspense and horror, The Shining, and introduces compelling new heroes as well as terrifying new evils. Part of the thrill in reading this is in finding out what became of little Danny Torrance and his mother after surviving the quintessential haunted hotel, but it’s not a dry recitation of history we’re subjected to. King paints a devastating portrait of a man perpetually running from personal demons and haunted by the horrors of his youth. No matter how supernatural or fantastic the author gets, his novels are always rooted in interesting and authentic characters, and this keeps the reader fully invested no matter how crazy it gets. Doctor Sleep is filled with more than enough twists, turns, thrills, and chills to remind any naysayer that above all else Stephen King is a master storyteller.
