Mobi Ø Doctor Sleep ↠ Stephen King

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 12 year old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormalsOn 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 There is a boy now a man a girl a band of baddies with a charismatic leader a coalition of the willing battles to be fought supernatural elements and magical powers Stephen King was at this long before Harry Potter lived under the stairs He has a preternatural not to say supernatural talent for writing kids and can keep you turning pages losing sleep and getting back late to work from your lunch breaks from King’s site We will presume for the purposes of this review that you have read or at least seen one version of The Shining If you have not read no further as there are details here that would be considered spoilerish were they to appear in a review of that book And if you have not read The Shining you should probably do so before taking on Doctor Sleep a seuel Ok everyone here has read The Shining yes? All right but we are using the honor system here and do not want to ruin the fun of reading that one for anyone So as long as you’re sureAt the end of The Shining three people survive the carnage Danny Torrance a five year old with a special gift Wendy Torrance Danny’s mother and newly widowed wife of the late Jack Torrance and Dick Halloran an employee of The Overlook and possessor of a gift like Danny’s one that allowed him to hear Danny’s psychic 911 call and return from his home in Florida in time to do something about it What happened next? King does not typically do seuels if one does not count books that are part of a planned series but Every now and then somebody would ask ‘Whatever happened to Danny?’ I used to joke around and say ‘He married Charlie McGee from Firestarter and they had these amazing kids’ But I did sort of wonder about it – from EWOne of the central features of The Shining was Jack’s Torrance’s battle with alcoholism As with the real world King’s fictional realm notes that alcoholism runs in families And one of the criticisms of The Shining was that the possibility of Jack considering getting some help from AA is never even raised If King has ever considered that to have been an oversight I have not seen that interview But it is clear that he has given the matter some thought Jack Torrance never tries Alcoholics Anonymous That is never even mentioned in The Shining He has what they call white knuckle sobriety He's doing it all by himself So I wondered what it would be like to see Danny first as an alcoholic and then see him in AA from an NPR InterviewEwan McGregor as Danny Torrance in the filmIt gives nothing away to let you know that Danny is a true Torrance Not only does he self medicate to uiet the terrors that still haunt him he is far from the best person he can beI knew if I did this seuel I’d have to try to put together some of the same elements but at the same time I didn’t want to make it too similar I didn’t want to make Danny a grown up with kids of his own and try to replicate that whole losing your temper because you’re drunk thing But I did think to myself ‘Not only alcoholism can be a family disease but rage can be a family disease’ You find that the guys who abuse their children were abused themselves as kids That certainly fit Danny as I knew him – from EW All SK novels reuire a baddie or a set of them No disappointment here King has again succeeded in taking the ordinary and making it horrifyingDriving back and forth from Maine to Florida which I do twice a year I’m always seeing all these recreational vehicles — the bounders in the Winnebagos I always think to myself ‘Who is in those things?’ You pass them a thousand times at rest stops They’re always the ones wearing the shirts that say ‘God Does Not Deduct From a Lifespan Time Spent Fishing’ They’re always lined up at the McDonald’s slowing the whole line down And I always thought to myself ‘There’s something really sinister about those people because they’re so unobtrusive yet so pervasive’ I just wanted to use

Text Doctor Sleep

Doctor SleepSpunky 12 year old Abra Stone learns The True Knot are uasi immortal living off the steam that children with the shining produce when they are slowly tortured to deathHaunted 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 po Remember that psychic little kid in The Shining? Have you ever wondered what he’d be like as an adult after surviving a haunted hotel that drove his drunken father crazy and gave him a case of the redrums? If so you’re in luck because Stephen King has now told us what happened to Danny Torrance and he’s just as screwed up from his experience as you’d expect him to beLike his father Dan has grown up to be a bad tempered drunk and he uses the booze to blot out his psychic powers as he drifts from town to town working menial jobs The early part of the book focuses on Dan hitting bottom and then trying to pull himself together with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous He winds up with a job as an orderly at a hospice where he earns the nickname of Doctor Sleep for his ability to provide an easier death for the patients Dan becomes aware of a little girl named Abra with a shining ability that dwarfs his own but unfortunately Abra has also come to the attention of group of vampire like creatures calling themselves the True Knot They pretend to be humans who roam the country as a harmless pack of tourists in RVs while they track down and feed on the psychic energy collected from torturing children with the shining and Abra would be like an all you can eat buffet to them This book is almost two separate stories One is about Dan Torrance struggling to come to terms with the legacy of his father his abilities and his alcoholism The other is about the battle to save a little girl from a pack of vicious monsters King does a decent job of trying to make these two tales intersect while revisiting some elements from The Shining but it ends up feeling like less than the sum of its parts Frankly I was far interested in Dan’s battle with the bottle than another Stephen King story about a child in danger from a supernatural threatIt’s not that Abra vs the True Knot is bad There’s a lot of genuinely creepy dread to be mined from a pack of psychic vampires roaming the country while posing as harmless middle aged farts and King knows how to milk every drop out of that concept And I liked the character of Abra a lot The idea of a powerfully psychic young girl with a bit of a mean streak was great Kinda like if Carrie White would have had decent parents and a happy childhoodIn fact Abra’s a little bit too powerful because she seems fully capable of kicking ass even during her first encounter with the True Knot So while there’s a lot of nice build up most of what happens seems anti climatic view spoiler Abra and Dan pretty much settle the True Knot’s hash with only minor injuries to a supporting character and no real lasting damage That just seems weird in a Stephen King novel which generally feature wholesale carnage and a lot collateral damage from the bad guys hide spoiler
