Doctor Sleep : a novel by Stephen King
Doctor Sleep is not a re-telling of Jack Torrence and the creepy Overlook Motel. The book works as a stand-alone novel, a bit of a sequel, but truly a new story with recurring characters from The Shining.
Starting with a summary of Danny and his mother's life over the past thirty five years, Doctor Sleep moves into the present where we find Danny coming to terms with his past; recovering from an abusive alcoholic father and fighting his own battle with sobriety. Doctor Sleep is a humane story with a twist, characters can read minds, see the future, and communicate telepathically. However humane, King's ability to scare the heck out of you is still powerfully strong!
