Though very different in form and tone, Stephen King’s “Doctor Sleep” was a welcome follow-up to “The Shining”. Worth reading if for no other reason to find out just what happened to those characters decades later. -Mike

Stephen King - Doctor Sleep. Book Review. When you think about iconic horror novels a few jump immediately to mind: Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. For more contemporary novels you might think of things like The Call Of Cthulhu by H.P. Lovecraft, The Haunting Of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, and The Shining by Stephen King. If you have created a work of art that sits on such a high pedestal would you mess with it?

This book reads like an episode of "Criminal Minds" and "Lie to Me" - a kidnapping has happened and the FBI are called in to solve the case. Told through glimpses of the kidnapper and victim, but mostly through the voice of the agents - this book is predictable and isn't great. quick read but nothing special.

Worth Reading, Stephen King, Book Worth, Vampires Book, Science Fiction, Good Book, Justin Cronin, Book Reviews, Post Apocalyptic
I recommend this for fans of Stephen King’s The Stand or Robert McCammon’s Swan Song. It has a familiar post apocalyptic story line with secret government experiments to create the über soldier going awry, turning humans into vampiric creatures and causing the downfall of society. There is also a young girl with a psychic connection to these creatures; however, Cronin’s writing is well worth your investment if you enjoy horror and post-apocalyptic world building.
The Passage by Justin Cronin... Overall, this was a good book and I do recommend it. It is long and it took me forever to get through it. There are parts of it that are total page turners, and parts that I had to force myself to read.... Haven't finished The Twelve yet because I'm finding it reads the same way...
The Passage by Justin Cronin, it is so interesting, and it is part of a trilogy. The story is post apocalyptic, science fiction, and somewhat supernatural, something I normally don't like, but I am enjoying this book. I recommend it, you won't be able to put it down!
