    Not sure if this has already been asked, but here is my question:

    I thought "Dr. Sleep" was a very interesting choice for a sequel, as many readers might have expected one for "'Salem's Lot," "The Stand," or perhaps even "IT" (Ms. Mod, please consider asking Mr. King if he would think about at least writing a sequel to "IT" in the form of a One-for-the-Road-from-Night-Shift brief tale). After musing on the subject, I came to wonder if maybe the theme of "Dr. Sleep" attracted you because you are getting older and are starting to think more and more about your mortality. As I myself get older, to be honest, I am coming to fear death; more accurately, I am fearful of the act of dying. It actually sends me into a legitimate clinical depression at times. Without knowing anything about the book beyond what has already been revealed, I would have to guess that the narrative, in the end, places death in a context that might tend to soothe those who might be afraid of it. So, in summation, my question is: Is "Dr. Sleep" an examination of the fear of death, and does it offer any solution for it (assuming that is even possible)?

    Again, this seems like it may have been asked before, but I will submit it nonetheless for consideration. Thanks.

    I was wondering this question, I don't know if it's been asked already....Is Doctor Sleep a stand alone book? In other words, could someone pick it up and enjoy it without having to have read The Shining first? Or does one have to read The Shining in order to make sense of Doctor Sleep?

    I think this is a really good question and I would very much like to know the answer.

    I'll tell you right after I finish it (just started reading it) because I haven't read The Shining yet so would be a good test. I do know the basic story line from the movie and TV miniseries, though. Yes, yes, I really did just admit that.

    Guys ...your gonna wanna read or re-read
    The Shinning in order to get ready for Dr, Sleep.
    I have done this all ready , for no other reason then
    for Dr. Sleep
    You all have until Nov to read it. Do it.

    Also , I posted 9 questions but I said
    "Its just for fun" ,

    Many of the questions are not "story specific"
    They are about Mr. King motives and feeling and such.
    His writing habits and what-all-have-you-

    I was asking about the plot and the characters and
    locations and : Bicycles; placed in the road by Ka.

    10) will we hear any more about the Red Death ?
    11) is Abra from the future ?
    12) is there a Tet Corp in Danny's world?
    13) Did Danny have any serious girl friends , ever>?
    14) is the idea of a third book , out of the question?
    15) in Vermont, does Danny meet his fathers family ?

    I could go on for ever.
