"Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. On highways across America, a tribe of people called The True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless-- mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and spunky twelve-year-old Abra Stone learns, The True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the 'steam' that children with the 'shining' produce when they are slowly tortured to death. Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father's legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant 'shining' power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes 'Doctor Sleep.' Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan's own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra's soul and survival"--From publisher's web site.… (mais)

Doing a follow-up to The Shining was always going to be a tall order, but King still puts on a fine showing here - while the central plot/threat here struggles a little in comparison with the monolithic, implacable power of the Overlook from the original, the later days of Dan Torrance's life have a unique charm all their own. If there's such a thing as a cozy horror novel (in the same way there are cozy mysteries), this is it. ( )

4.5 stars
A really enjoyable thriller (not so much horror really). It was really interesting to find out what happened to little Danny Torrance.
I loved the character of Abra. A kid who like Danny did, 'shines' so bright that she scares her parents. The bad guys are provided by an ancient vampire-like group lead by Rose the Hat who prey on children who shine, normally the ones that only shine a little bit. They are truly evil and antagonists worthy of hatred and fear.
Unlike the first book in the series, I never found this very scary. This could be due to the fact that I am fairly used to dying people (I'm a nurse) or the fact that Mr King, is far more mature and less edgy than he used to be. A very good read nevertheless. ( )

It's impossible to live up to The Shining, but this is pretty good. It drags, the psychic vampire story is meh, and the resolution is kinda stupid. But Dan's story is engaging, and the parts that go into the hospice patients' lives and deaths are very moving. ( )

What a disappointment.

The first half is quite good. It's nice to catch up with "Danny" Torrance from "The Shining." But somewhere around the halfway point the whole thing just becomes dull. The final resolution includes no big twists or turns and ends exactly the way you'd expect. The scariest parts also occur right away as the book begins and they aren't even all that scary.

King had some interesting concepts he could've used to better advantage, including the whole idea of the old site of the Overlook Hotel becoming a campground. But nothing ever comes of it. Overall, a real wasted opportunity. ( )

Loving the narrator

too old style for me. reminded me of my koontz days.

I can't recall reading a book with so many product placements. He gets paid for that right?

An answer from a google search "I am reasonably sure that King receives no compensation for a product mention in his fiction (movies would be something else, as those discussions would be done by the producers but not the author.) King's assistant has told me that he has never received compensation for this (however, he has received unsolicited samples of some products).

King has always used the names of real-life products in his works. His argument has been that it adds an air of verisimilitude to the fiction; critics have pointed at the practice as evidence of his low-brow-attitude." ( )

What are those virtues? First, King is a well-trusted guide to the underworld. His readers will follow him through any door marked “Danger: Keep Out” (or, in more literary terms, “Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here”), because they know that not only will he give them a thorough tour of the inferno — no gore left unspilled, no shriek left unshrieked — he will also get them out alive. As the Sibyl of Cumae puts it to Aeneas, it’s easy to go to hell, but returning from it is the hard part. She can say that because she’s been there; and, in a manner of speaking — our intuition tells us — so has King.

Second, King is right at the center of an American literary taproot that goes all the way down: to the Puritans and their belief in witches, to Hawthorne, to Poe, to Melville, to the Henry James of “The Turn of the Screw,” and then to later exemplars like Ray Bradbury. In the future, I predict, theses will be written on such subjects as “American Puritan Neo-Surrealism in ‘The Scarlet Letter’ and ‘The Shining,’ ” and “Melville’s Pequod and King’s Overlook Hotel as Structures That Encapsulate American History.”

When I was playing my primitive band of rhythm guitar with a group called the Rock Bottom Remainders, Warren Zevon used to gig with us. Warren loved gray t-shirts and movies like Kingdom of the Spiders. He insisted I sing lead on his signature tune, "Werewolves of London", during the encore portion of our shows. I said I was not worthy. He insisted that I was. "Key of G", Warren told me, "and howl like you mean it. Most important of all, play like Keith."
I'll never be able to play like Keith Richards, but I always did my best, and with Warren beside me, matching me note for note and laughing his fool head off, I always had a blast.
Warren, this howl is for you, wherever you are. I miss you, buddy.

The one thing of which Dan was sure was that there were no coincidences.
Life was a wheel, its only job was to turn, and it always came back to where it had started.
