Book Review : Doctor Sleep by Stephen King

Recently, I read "Doctor Sleep" by Stephen King. I was having a bad day and went into Barnes and Noble and saw an Esquire with a Stephen King short in it (so good!) and decided to buy one of his books. Oh man, I had no idea how much the fucker had been writing! I'm so behind. I decided on "Doctor Sleep" because it follows the kid from "The Shining". I like staying in his universe.

My vote : READ IT!!

Even if you're not a King fan, even if you haven't read "The Shining," it's good. It's interesting. It's a story with many characters from different places and King weaves their lives together very well. It's not super horror, more supernatural, but still creepy. It shouldn't keep you up at night, unless it's from reading! "Doctor Sleep" doesn't suffer from some of King's flaws; he is not overly verbose or disgusting in this book. Instead, it's just King at his best; really good storytelling. Check it out from your library, pick it up at a local book store, find it on Reddit's book exchange, or grab it from a yard sale, you won't be disappointed.

    1. Hey girl! If your boyfriend loves Stephen King, he probably won't need a recommendation! But still, please tell him how awesome it was!
