Doctor Sleep Book Review:

Now a major motion picture starring Ewan McGregor! From master storyteller Stephen King, his unforgettable and terrifying sequel to The Shining—an instant #1 New York Times bestseller that is “[a] vivid frightscape” (The New York Times). Years ago, the haunting of the Overlook Hotel nearly broke young Dan Torrance’s sanity, as his paranormal gift known as “the shining” opened a door straight into hell. And even though Dan is all grown up, the ghosts of the Overlook—and his father’s legacy of alcoholism and violence—kept him drifting aimlessly for most of his life. Now, Dan has finally found some order in the chaos by working in a local hospice, earning the nickname “Doctor Sleep” by secretly using his special abilities to comfort the dying and prepare them for the afterlife. But when he unexpectedly meets twelve-year-old Abra Stone—who possesses an even more powerful manifestation of the shining—the two find their lives in sudden jeopardy at the hands of the ageless and murderous nomadic tribe known as the True Knot, reigniting Dan’s own demons and summoning him to battle for this young girl’s soul and survival...

The Shining Book Review:

Before Doctor Sleep, there was The Shining, a classic of modern American horror from the undisputed master, Stephen King. Jack Torrance’s new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel, he’ll have plenty of time to spend reconnecting with his family and working on his writing. But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote . . . and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.

Doctor Sleep Book Review:

An epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted readers of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon. King says he wanted to know what happened to Danny Torrance, the boy at the heart of The Shining, after his terrible experience in the Overlook Hotel. The instantly riveting DOCTOR SLEEP picks up the story of the now middle-aged Dan, working at a hospice in rural New Hampshire, 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. But as Dan Torrance knows, and tween 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 . . .

Doctor Sleep Book Review:

Sophisticated suspense from a National Book Award finalist, about a hypnotist tormented by insomnia and a hunt for a killer: “Excellent...revelatory writing.”—The Washington Post Book World Adrian Strother is a hypnotherapist who, paradoxically, can’t get to sleep. He’s left New York to ply his trade in a depressed section of London, treating phobias and addictions and doing the occasional job for Scotland Yard. That aspect of his work is about to get him involved with the case of a serial killer who targets little girls, as he treads the line between tortured wakefulness and surreal sleep, wrestling with his own demons and fighting to keep his past at a distance. Now the gifts of his cursed insomnia will be called upon to unlock the secrets of a man who believes he has discovered the key to immortality. Part spiritual pilgrimage, part psychological thriller, Doctor Sleep is witty, menacing, and “a rip-roaring good read” (Los Angeles Times). “A wonderfully inventive novel in the genre of the hard-boiled detective story, with metaphysical overtones...a poetic thriller, perfectly orchestrated, beautifully written, reverberant and entertaining.”—The Baltimore Sun

The Sleep Doctor s Diet Plan Book Review:

Losing weight while you sleep may sound too good to be true, but in fact the connection between inadequate sleep and weight gain (among a host of other negative medical results) has long been recognized by medical researchers. Turning this equation on its head, clinical psychologist and board-certified sleep expert Dr. Michael Breus shows that a good night's sleep will actually enable you to lose weight, especially if you have been chronically sleep deprived. The Sleep Doctor's Diet Plan is designed to help any person who has been frustrated by her inability to shed weight by giving her the tools to overcome the stress, poor habits, and environmental challenges that stand between her and adequate rest. Sleep deprivation is a frustrating reality for many women faced with chronic stress or hormonal changes--and the fatigue, moodiness, and weight gain that come with it might just be the tip of the iceberg. While helping thousands of women implement simple health and lifestyle changes to improve the quality and the quantity of their slumber, Dr. Breus has witnessed not only an upsurge in their energy levels and a diminishing of myriad health concerns, but also significant weight loss achieved without restrictive dieting or increased amounts of exercise. In The Sleep Doctor's Diet Plan, Dr. Breus delves into the science behind this sleep–weight-loss connection, explaining exactly how sleep boosts your metabolism, ignites fat burn, and decreases cravings and overall appetite, and he presents a realistic action plan to help you get your best sleep--and your best body--possible. He shows how you can overcome your personal sleep obstacles with a slumber-friendly evening routine, stress management techniques--even recipes for healthy meals and snacks--to help you fall asleep more easily. If you are ready to stop tossing and turning night after night, if you are done downing coffee to conquer nagging fatigue, and if you have bounced from one diet to another in an effort to find one that really, finally helps you lose the pounds you want, The Sleep Doctor's Diet Plan has the information, advice, and practical strategies you need to get deep, revitalizing sleep--and achieve a slimmer, healthier body in the process.

Book Sidekick Book Review:

WARNING: This is not the actual book Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. Do not buy this reading Sidekick if you are looking for a full copy of this great book. Use the chapter-by-chapter guide, the character breakdown, and the explanation of Doctor Sleep themes and motifs in this analysis to walk through this chilling, tense read. Stephen King's long-awaited sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep, marks the author's return to the horror genre after a foray into science fiction. Loaded with supernatural elements and told in King's signature terse style, Doctor Sleep revolves around Dan Torrance, son of Jack Torrance from The Shining. It focuses on Dan's life after the events at the Overlook Hotel. Dan, now a grown man, struggles with his former alcoholism, while also struggling with his gift, known as "the shining." He finds himself drawn to a girl named Abra who has an even more powerful gift. Together, they must survive while working to expose a merciless secret society that targets children that possess the gift to shine. Stephen King narrates Doctor Sleep from a third-person perspective but gives each character a distinctive voice. Dan must face his demons if he is to help Abra survive. Stephen King skillfully weaves a narrative laden with themes of self-control, innocence, and redemption. He uses subtle clues to help cue readers in on the passage of time and characterization. In all, Doctor Sleep provides a satisfying follow-up to one of King's most celebrated works.

Different Seasons Book Review:

Four novellas from Stephen King bound together by the changing of seasons, each taking on the theme of a journey with strikingly different tones and characters. This gripping collection begins with "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption," in which an unjustly imprisoned convict seeks a strange and startling revenge--the basis for the Best Picture Academy Award-nominee The Shawshank Redemption. Next is "Apt Pupil," the inspiration for the film of the same name about top high school student Todd Bowden and his obsession with the dark and deadly past of an older man in town. In "The Body," four rambunctious young boys plunge through the facade of a small town and come face-to-face with life, death, and intimations of their own mortality. This novella became the movie Stand By Me. Finally, a disgraced woman is determined to triumph over death in "The Breathing Method."--Provided by publisher.

The Wobbit Book Review:

From the authors of the New York Times bestselling parody The Hunger Pains, this fresh take on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit is a hilarious send-up of Middle-earth, publishing just in time for the major motion picture release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The sequel to the parody of the sequel to the prequel to The Lord of the Rings When Aaron Sorkinshield and his band of Little People embark on a totally feasible quest to reclaim the hoard of Academy Awards stolen from them by the lonely Puff the Magic Dragon, senile wizard Dumbledalf suggests an unlikely and completely unqualified accomplice: Billy Bagboy, an unassuming wobbit dwelling in terrorist-riddled Wobbottabad. Along the way, the company faces Internet trolls, moblins, one really big spider that must be at least an inch and a half wide, and worse. But as they journey from the wonders of Livinwell to the terrors of Jerkwood and beyond, Billy will find that there is more to him than anyone—Tolkien included—ever dreamed. Propelled to his destiny by a series of courageous adventures and indented paragraphs, Billy will set out on the greatest YOLO of all time . . . one that leads deep into the dark caverns hiding a mysterious man named Goldstein, who’s just trying to have a nice seder.
