Product description


King's own supplies of creative steam show little sign of being depleted. (The Sunday Times)

A powerful sequel to The Shining


King finds a mode of the supernatural that has a melancholic beauty (Guardian, Book of the Week)

All the virtues of his best work (Margaret Atwood, New York Times)

A gripping, powerful novel, all the more so for being patently heartfelt (Financial Times)

King is a very remarkable and singular writer. He can catch dialogue, throw away an observation or mint a simile, sometimes, brilliantly . . . Storytelling is everything - and by golly does he know how to carry the reader. (Observer)

DOCTOR SLEEP is King expertly returning to the milieu of his most beloved novels, combining not just elements from the original THE SHINING but themes and imagery familiar from King's books, including CARRIE, SALEM'S LOT, FIRESTARTER and IT. It also has a structure King has often utilised before, with a group of essentially good people having to band against a gang of baddies but within this structure King works masterful variations, showing just with a brilliant storyteller he is. When King is on form, as he is in DOCTOR SLEEP, he has no rivals for sheer page-turning suspense. It is as addictive as anything he has written: a triumph from the world's finest horror novelist. (Sunday Express)

It's a gripping, powerful novel, all the more so for being patently heartfelt. (Financial Times)

DOCTOR SLEEP is a warm, entertaining novel by a man who is no longer the prisoner of his demons, but knows where to find them when he needs to call on them. (Daily Telegraph)

Thirty-six years on from his horror classic, THE SHINING, Stephen King's sequel shows he still has plenty of creative steam. (The Sunday Times)

Book Description
