I bought Doctor Sleep: A Novel by Stephen King from the friends of the library and saved it to read while traveling. For two days straight, I could not put the book down.

The story discusses what happened to Dan Torrance, the young boy from The Shinning. Haunted by his past, Dan is an alcoholic. Arriving in a small NH town, Dan makes friends, attends AA, and starts working at a nursing home where he uses his shinning to help the elderly go to eternal sleep. As a result he earns the nickname, Dr. Sleep.

Dan meets a young 9-year-old girl Abra Stone who has such a  powerful shine that paranormals are seeking her out to suck up her “steam.” Dan must try to save her from getting caught. But, can he?

Another good book for lovers of Stephen King.
