    Hi! I'm new obviously, I've been reading Stephen King novels since I was 13. My first one was The Shinning. And just an hour ago I finished Doctor Sleep. I don't know why but I felt like bursting into tears after reading the authors note due to me having such a hard time with how my life has been playing out. I hope that maybe someday Stephen King would happen to read this or any future posts someday. That would probably be the one thing that could make me feel like my life is actually worth living and everything I went through and got through was for a purpose. Strange I know but yeah that's me.

    Welcome to the site. :) Doctor Sleep is great... and Stephen certainly does have a way of getting in deep down under the skin.

    ...he is my literary hero, so I get that...but never seek validation outside yourself...it's bound to end badly...the sheer fact you've made it to our Ka-Tet and are now family, is priceless...hang around and see how great you are when reflected off the mirrors of the beautiful souls here...

    Near the end of Doctor Sleep and it, too, is one of my all time favorite S. King books.
