Doctor Sleep is not just the simple new King’s book it’s also the sequel of one of his most popular novel: The Shining. The novel became not only a literary hit but also cinema classic with Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation featuring the incredible performance from Jack Nicholson.
Planned to go on sale September 24, the novel will follow Dan Torrance who is now a middle-aged man still haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel. Years after the events of The Shining, he is settled in a New Hampshire Town where he works in a nursing home using his remnant shining power to provide the final comfort to the dying. Over there, he becomes for the patient the “Doctor Sleep”.
Later, he meets Abra Stone, a special twelve-year-old girl, and a special gift: the brightest shining he has ever seen that brings back Dan’s demons and summons him to protect and save the girl from a tribe of murderous paranormals called: The True Knot. This tribe travel across America in search of sustenance. They’re quasi-immortal and are living off the “steam” of children with the “shining” produced when they’re slowly tortured to death.
Stephen King is one of the most prolific and successful writers. His latest novel Joyland, a tribute to Pulp Fiction, was published on June 4 and is already on the bestsellers lists.
