And I have to say, I did not love it as much as I thought I would. Having just reread The Shining, I was primed to read Doctor Sleep. It started out well, gained some momentum for a while, lost steam and then the ending was rushed and I feel too "tidy." Yes, I have read others' opinions of the good guys all staying alive and how that was "refreshing" for a change, but I just do not feel that way. Of course, this is all personal opinion and I realize I will not love every book SK writes, but having absolutely loved Joyland, I thought Doctor Sleep would do the same for me.
