ZitatWith Doctor Sleep, Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his previous novels, The Shining. The novel features the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the twelve-year-old girl, Abra Stone, who possesses an even greater psychic ability ("shining") than Danny did as a child.Following the events of The Shining, Danny remains psychologically traumatized; Wendy, his mother, is still in pain from her recovered injuries. Angry ghosts from The Overlook Hotel eventually find Danny, including the woman from Room 217. Chef Halloran eventually teaches Danny how to imprison the ghosts in lock boxes inside his mind.The adult Dan reprises his father's legacy of anger and alcoholism. Dan drifts for decades, but eventually finds AA and gives up drinking. He settles in a New Hampshire town and works in a nursing home, where his remnant mental abilities provide comfort to the dying. With the aid of a cat that can foresee the future, Dan became "Doctor Sleep."Dan establishes a telepathic bond with Abra. She contacts him in desperation when she receives clairvoyant knowledge of the ritual murder of the "Baseball Boy," another child who possesses "the shining." We learn that the child was sacrificed by a group called "The True Knot." Led by Rose the Hat, this group of almost immortal travelers criss-cross the country, periodically feeding on the psychic energy (which they call "steam") of children with the gift of "the shining." They discover Abra's existence and begin closing in on her. Dan and others engage in a struggle to save Abra from The True Knot. An epic war between good and evil ensues.
Zitat von: Mr. Blonde nach 21 Oktober 2013, 22:10:03Was haltet Ihr davon, dass King nun eine Fortsetzung geschrieben hat? Ich tue mich immer etwas schwer, wenn solche Sachen jahrzehnte später veröffentlicht werden. Sicherlich wird ein Kinofilm folgen, woraus dann vielleicht ein Prequel entstehen wird. Da wird sich definitiv was tun.
