Audio Book Summary

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

Now 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...

    I absolutely loved it. It was a beautiful sequel to the shining. It also gave a heart wrenching and yet serene view of our last moments on this earth. It is rare to see such a work that can simultaneously have you smile, cry, laugh, and worry. It was almost comforting to see Doc grow up.

    As a fan of The Shining I was looking forward to this sequel. Be warned, if you are looking to feel the same thing The Shining made you feel, this is not the book for you. It feels like a completely different story that shares the same characters. It is a decent book to listen to, however and I do recommend it.

    Great sequel to The Shining! Not nearly so horrific, but very compelling and spooky. It's good to finally know what happened to little Danny.

    I really enjoyed this book. I was a fan of The Shining, so getting to find out what happened when Danny was all grown up was a lot of fun. I loved all the twists and turns and new characters this book had to offer, yet it still incorporated aspects of the original book. Full circle. Great book if you like the suspense and horror genre.

    I loved this book! I finished it in 3 days. I bought the audio book for something to listen to at night before bed, to help me fall asleep. I picked the wrong book for that. It was narrated so beautifully that I stayed awake for hours just to find out what happened next. Great book. I'm so glad I bought it. I will have to read it a second time. I did have some trouble finding a connection with some of the characters but this book kept me attentive to want to find out more. Awesome story!
