Ayer terminé de leer Doctor Sueño, de Stephen King, uno de mis autores favoritos. Y antes de decir que es demasiado comercial o que escribe best-sellers, os invito a conocer su obra más detenidamente.

Doctor Sueño es la segunda parte de El Resplandor, una de sus mejores obras (no, no es como la peli de Kubrick, ni siquiera acaba igual).

Se puede leer este libro sin haber leído antes el Resplandor? Sí, pero por qué hacerlo? La gracia de este libro es saber qué ha sido del pequeño Dan Torrance, ya no tan pequeño y convertido en alcohólico, como su padre. También nos introduce un personaje nuevo, una niña que también tiene el Resplandor. En fin, mejor que hacer un resumen del libro, os invito a leerlo, siempre empezando por El Resplandor, evidentemente.

Me ha costado bastante acabar este libro, porque leo varios a la vez y porque tengo otras cosas que hacer, pero la historia engancha y está todo muy bien hilado. —
En definitiva, me ha gustado recuperar una historia de Stephen King sobre niños especiales, aunque sin duda los tiene mejores.

Just finished - Doctor Sleep by Stephen King ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
.
Synopsis : Returning to the characters first introduced in The Shining, Doctor Sleep follows the story of Dan Torrance, now in his 30s and struggling with alcoholism as his father had before him. In an attempt to get better Dan moves to a small New Hampshire town, joins AA, and works at a local nursing home where he uses what’s left of his shine to give comfort to the homes elderly residents. There Dan meets Abra Stone, an effervescent and brilliant young girl with the strongest shine Dan has ever encountered. However, Dan is not the only one who can feel Abra’s strong shine. A travelling community called The True Knot, ancient beings who live off the shine power of children, have felt Abra’s presence and are determined to find her and steal her shine and her soul.
.
Review : The Shining is phenomenal so it was always going to be a hard act to follow. Masterfully, King has written this in such a way that you don’t have to have read The Shining to follow the events in Doctor Sleep. Although I’m sure all King purists will have anyway! While not as scary as The Shining, The True Knot are one of the scariest King creations of all time and contrastingly Abra is one of the purest. I thought all the characters were fantastically written and the plot is intricately planned and well executed. I particularly enjoyed the story of Dan’s struggles with sobriety as I’m sure King based a lot of that on personal experience and it provides a fascinating insight into his life. I thought the pacing was a bit slow at first but it did pick up eventually and I flew through the second half of the book. Also props to Will Patton who expertly narrated the audiobook version I listened to!

Recently read: Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
⭐⭐⭐⭐☄ 4.5
An enjoyable read, best enjoyed after reading The Shining. It is the sequel after all. This is more of a pseudo-paranormal adventure than horror like The Shining. Not scary at all but still thrilling. I found the author's note at the end funny, with a side-swipe at Kubrick's The Shining film.

Guten Morgen 🌞
Heute wird von mir nichts kommen, denn wir sind auf dem Weg nach Hamburg!
Zur Hochzeit haben wir nämlich Karten für Aladdin geschenkt bekommen 😍
Auf die Reise begleitet mich aber Stephen King mit Doctor Sleep 📚📖 Durch die Zugfahrten habe ich endlich mal wieder Zeit zum Lesen 😍
Leider habe ich meinen Gutschein von Thalia Zuhause vergessen, sonst hätte ich dort gerne gestöbert 😅
Drückt uns bitte die Daumen, dass die Züge fahren, wie sie sollen 🙈
