Book Review: Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
The long awaited sequel to ‘The Shining’. Dan Torrance has spent 35 years trying to escape his father’s legacy of alcoholism and violence. Abra Stone is a child whose shining far exceeds Dan’s own. It is a gift that makes her a target for the True Knot. The True Knot travel across American wearing polyester, driving RV’s and looking ordinary. But they are monsters who eat children with the shining and they have targeted Abra. This is a good creepy successor to the classic. Dan comes to certain realisations about his father and himself, Abra is a brat and her parents are annoying.

Best Lines:
“Thanks to TV, a fit middle-aged man in sunglasses always looked like a hit man to a certain part of the population.”

“It will kill him dead as Amy Winehouse.”

“To utter a phrase not generally used by adults around young girls from New Hampshire.”

“An evil place would call evil creatures.”

“They will never stop.”
