Part 2?

    Now that we've seen how Dan Torrence turned out in Doctor Sleep, I'd LOVE to see what Charlie's up to these days. Drew Barrymore has kids, so what if Charlie did, too? What kind of mischief and mayhem could they get up to? And what lengths would Charlie go to in order to protect them if some secret government thought they might have powers too?
    I'd love to find out.

    ....is your alias "Tiny"?????....just kidding, it would be kinda cool-but I'm afraid that we could beg for sequels on so many of his works, that all originality would just bleed off...

    I was not that fond of this novel. I do not really fancy a sequel.

    I agree with that. While I don't see a sequel in the works to this one, as long as a character is alive (and even if they aren't in some cases!), you never know when a character from a prior novel will get referenced, make a cameo, or show up in a supporting role in another work. Stranger things have happened.

    This is the ONE novel I would like to lobby for a sequel. The way it ended simply begs for a part 2! Honestly, I didn't really care what happened to Dan Torrance. What happened to Charlie?! :)

    That would be interesting! Then again, maybe it's better to make up our own head-sequels and let Mr. King do his thing with originals :)

    Surely. Too bad firestarter didn't have the same impact as that other story. I actually prefered the kid from firestarter than Danny. Charlie was a brave lil warrior. Danny was a pussy. LOL

    I'd love for King to go back to writing about The Shop! Imagine, with today's technology, what they would be capable of!! I wouldn't mind seeing what Charlie was up to also.

    Meh. Doctor Sleep and The Wind Through the Keyhole were enough sequels for a long while, IMO. Maybe Charlie could pop in or be referenced in an original novel--but no more than that....

    I saw King do a Ustream interview or something where he joked about Charlie from Firestarter and Danny from The Shining meeting somewhere and having kids together


    I would so read it though:0:

    The Nameless M-O-O-N - That spells Nameless

    Having just finished this, I would rather he finished it properly with a few more chapters. I know it's nice to make your own mind up every now and then but I don't think this should have been one of those times.

    I also liked Charlie a lot more than Danny Torrence but I rather enjoyed Dr sleep (but I think that may have been more down to abra and rose.

    That's kind of how I see a Firestarter sequel. A young person going through all this crap, so forth and so on... gets in trouble, but is rescued at the end by mom and her HOLY CRAP!! power of starting fires. Only what was mostly uncontrolled blobs of fire from a child's mind in the first book has been honed to laser like precision by the adult. And wouldn't it be fun if Charlie didn't even need line of sight anymore? Epilogue is a bad guy sitting in his office when a little dance of light comes to call.

  18. I'm re-reading Firestarter at the moment and would absolutely love a sequel! Although another novel exploring more of The Shop's experiments would be great too =D
