Rating 4 out of 5

People have mixed emotions regarding this novel. Maybe if it wasn’t a sequel to The Shining others would like the novel more? Who knows. Because of the mixed reviews I was initially hesitant to reading, Doctor Sleep; however, I really enjoyed it. I especially loved revisiting The Overlook’s ground zero while also catching up with both Wendy and Danny Torrence.

There were a few scenes in the novel that really creeped me out. Like severely creeped me out. I also loved visiting Wilmington, North Carolina where a pivotal moment happens to Danny. While reading I thought, “Hey I have the perfect location photo for the backdrop of this photo.” Then I watched the film and within minutes recognized that it was filmed in Covington, GA so decided to use that backdrop instead.
