    "Paging Dr. Sleep."

    Danny Torrance is a great character. The development wasn't as good as Eddie, Larry, or Susanna, but I am impressed with his humanistic qualities, like his guilt. I must say that this story is not as good as The Shinning, but it would be hard to create a sequel as brilliant (and scary) as the original.

    The writing is good, but I sense some restraint. I feel he didn't let loose. The scenes are not as graphic as usual. But the writing is clear and structured well and the characters (even the villains) seem real.

    The only problem I have with the story is Rose's hat. I won't go into why I have an issue with the her wearing a top hat, because it doesn't matter. I haven't finished the story and hope that piece of trash gets what she deserves.

    Overall he crafted a good story and I am looking forward to the ending.


    I have not finished yet, but I am sure

    This hat... I wish it
    wouldn't burnt in the end. Then there's would left some glimpse of hope to see it once again, you know like Christine in IT.

    Finished this book last week and concluded the same thing. Good writing, but found some parts coasted more than they needed to. The last scene at the hospice with Danny made up for it, though. Overall, a very good story.
