Revue de presse :

King is a very remarkable and singular writer. He can catch dialogue, throw away an observation or mint a simile, sometimes, brilliantly . . . Storytelling is everything - and by golly does he know how to carry the reader. (Observer)

DOCTOR SLEEP is King expertly returning to the milieu of his most beloved novels, combining not just elements from the original THE SHINING but themes and imagery familiar from King's books, including CARRIE, SALEM'S LOT, FIRESTARTER and IT. It also has a structure King has often utilised before, with a group of essentially good people having to band against a gang of baddies but within this structure King works masterful variations, showing just with a brilliant storyteller he is. When King is on form, as he is in DOCTOR SLEEP, he has no rivals for sheer page-turning suspense. It is as addictive as anything he has written: a triumph from the world's finest horror novelist. (Sunday Express 2013-09-29)

It's a gripping, powerful novel, all the more so for being patently heartfelt. (Financial Times 2013-09-21)

DOCTOR SLEEP is a warm, entertaining novel by a man who is no longer the prisoner of his demons, but knows where to find them when he needs to call on them. (Daily Telegraph 2013-09-21)

Thirty-six years on from his horror classic, THE SHINING, Stephen King's sequel shows he still has plenty of creative steam. (The Sunday Times 2013-09-21)

King has written a sequel, the tale of what happened to little Danny when he grew up. Need one say more? It cannot fail . . . the best thing to emerge from King's glittering, warped imagination is of mundane, small-town America corrupted by hidden forces . . . you cannot but respect his ruthless expertise as a storyteller . . . even those of us who would never freely pick up a Stephen King must genuflect to a master. (The Times 2013-09-21)

Stephen King's frightscapes are among the most incredible in literature, yet one believes in them unquestioningly. (Spectator 2013-09-21)

Terrifying and, as always, brilliantly-crafted tale, you won't be left wanting. But you may be left scared. (Sun 2013-09-21)

A magnificent sequel to one of the finest horror yarns written . . . Brilliant. (Daily Express 2013-09-21)

Highly anticipated sequel to his bestselling 1977 novel THE SHINING . (Daily Express Saturday Mag 2013-09-21)

Hopeful and hugely humane. (Irish Times - John Connolly 2013-09-21)

DOCTOR SLEEP has a tightness, an economy, after some of the lengthier novels of recent years, but also a lightness of touch. It reads less like a horror novel than a thriller and ends on a scene of intimate and intense human contact, a gift of consolation at the moment of death. (Irish Times - John Connolly 2013-09-21)

King is too skilled a storyteller for DOCTOR SLEEP to be anything other than unputdownable. (Mail On Sunday 2013-09-21)

Both an excellent sequel to THE SHINING and a strong novel in its own right, this is one of King's best books in the last decade. (SciFi Bulletin 2013-09-21)

Suspenseful, thrilling and packed with twists . . . an incredibly sincere piece of writing. (Time Out 2013-09-21)

It still grips, just differently than the original (Shortlist 2013-09-21)

King still remains the daddy of them all (Metro 2013-09-21)

The novel's deepest shiverings depend on no made-up devils. (Guardian 2013-09-21)

For the truth is, there are few writers who have such a way with character (and that character delivered through authorial peeks into thought and feeling, is so important in his books) . . . Once his stories get their hooks into you, they're impossible to put down . . . The denouement of the novel takes place in autumn, and that's no coincidence. You can practically smell the leaf piles burning, their fragrant smoke mixed with that of funeral pyres. (Sfx.co.uk 2013-09-21)

King [is] a genius at transforming the ordinary into the utterly horrific. (Evening Standard 2013-09-21)

This is the master on top form, drawing his readers in with his amazing storytelling power - first with the tension, then with the richness and details of the scene-setting and characterisation. (Daily Mail 2013-09-21)

Book of the Week:

King finds a mode of the supernatural that has a melancholic beauty while avoiding spiritualist blather

(Guardian 2013-09-21)

[King] writes people and communities with searing acuity, and often touching compassion, coupled with tough and authentic understanding. The difference is, he also steps back, or sideways, through the gaps to hook out the slithery things and the creeping, gut-churning things at the corner of our vision. (British Fantasy Society Review 2013-09-21)

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Master storyteller Stephen King’s terrifying sequel to The Shining—an instant #1 New York Times bestseller that is "[a] vivid frightscape" ( The New York Times).

On highways across America, a tribe of people called the True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless—mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and spunky twelve-year-old Abra Stone learns, the True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the steam that children with the shining produce when they are slowly tortured to death.

Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel, where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant shining power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes “Doctor Sleep.”

Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan’s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra’s soul and survival. This is an epic war between good and evil, glorious story that will thrill the millions of devoted readers of The Shining and satisfy anyone new to this icon in the Stephen King canon.
