Dr. Sleep is on My Bookshelf!

Very excited about reading Stephen King’s latest book, “Dr. Sleep”. I just picked it up today, and hopefully will have time in the next couple of days to begin reading it. I have never read “The Shining” and would like to read that as well! I have seen the movie more than enough times that it still scares me like crazy, but I also know books are always better than movies.

I tend to run hot-and-cold for Stephen Kings books. I either love them or don’t really care for them. But as he has written so many books, I have found plenty of his stories that are just terrific. I read under the dome, but found it to be less than exciting for me. I think his favorite book I have read to date would be “From a Buick 8”. Has anyone else read this story? I have read it about 5 times.

Have you begun reading Dr. Sleep? Is it what you expected? Spoilers ore OK! Just a warning ahead of time for others who don’t want to know anything ahead of time.

    I just started Doctor Sleep. For a little while I was unsure how I would like it, but then one of those classic creepy King moments happened and I said “Ah, there we go.” I’m eager to keep reading, and as usual with me and King books, I wish I had enough time to just lock the world out and finish it all in one go.

    If you only know The Shining from the movie you should be warned that the book is different in a lot of ways, some of which affect this story. You may find yourself confused when you open Doctor Sleep to see that Dick Hallorann is alive but the Overlook is not. 🙂

      I find myself confused already because I do not even remember who Dick Hallorann is LOL. Obviously I haven’t seen the movie in quite some time. I think this means I am just going to have to go back to the bookstore, buy “The Shining”, and read that first. Darn it, another boring trip to the bookstore, NOT! They can see me coming from a mile away -)
