La esperada continuación de “El resplandor”. Esta vez nos ponemos en la piel de Danny Torrance, aquel niño que tuvo que vivir los horrores que encerraba aquél hotel abandonado, y vio cómo su padre acabó completamente desquiciado. Pero ahora ese chico que correteaba por los pasillos del Overlook tiene 40 años y hace frente a los mismos problemas con el alcohol que sufría su padre, Jack. Pero Danny lo hará de una manera diferente ya que intenta rehabilitarse acudiendo a sesiones de alcohólicos anónimos y trabaja cuidando ancianos en una residencia. La novela entraña misterio, sesiones hipnóticas y fenómenos paranormales de todo tipo, de entre los cuales se destaca una niña de 12 años con poderes psíquicos a la que Danny deberá salvar.
An epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted readers of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon. King says he wanted to know what happened to Danny Torrance, the boy at the heart of The Shining, after his terrible experience in the Overlook Hotel. The instantly riveting DOCTOR SLEEP picks up the story of the now middle-aged Dan, working at a hospice in rural New Hampshire, and the very special twelve-year old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. On 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 tween Abra Stone learns, The True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the 'steam' that children with the 'shining' produce when they are slowly tortured to death. Haunted 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' power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes 'Doctor Sleep.' Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan's own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra's soul and survival...
