Sorry for the late review ,I was really busy due to the test was going on in my college.
Without wasting much time ,I come to the main point Book review hoooooooorrraayy.
Author: Stephen King
this book more fantasy than horror.
Not recommended especially for horror.
Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-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 spunky 12-year-old 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. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon .
Firstly the negative points of the book.
Cons: The books has really slow start .You always gets distracted like it’s never gonna happen.
Second i don’t know if it’s a con
People buy stephen king’s work basically for the horror and chills .
As the tag line of this books says[The Shining book 2 ]people gets distracted or I say cheated as shining we all know it’s really a spooky book or I say creepy .
The book is more magical mystery than horror.
In this book the shining is used with it’s limits.
There’s only 2 cons in this .
After all its written by Stephen king.
Pros: As I mentioned in the start , the book is really slow but the book is so interesting that you never get bored of it.
If the book has interesting middle part than book is GOOD.
This book has very high gripping power.
There are some scenes at where the spookiness comes into action but you know what’s gonna happen and they are not that powerfull at all.
At last the book is good sequel and it is recommended for autumn reads.
The book has really vivid charecter display really .If you also learn from reading I must say you should give this book a try.I recommend all s.k books for charecter devlopment.
#note:I suggest all the readers to read this first than the dark tower series ,as this book tells about The Shining , and The Dark Tower series is fully based on the use of the shining.
The book is so balanced but i must say if you read it than it’s Good,but if you did’nt than it’s also Good.
