Doctor Sleep. Stephen King returns to the character and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. 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...
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

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.

I am reading this book 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!
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...
Great Book!!!!! Ill be reading this one again and again.
