On highways across America, a tribe of people called The True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless – mostly old, lots of polyesters, 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…

As a fact, Stephen King’s specialty is in his way of incorporating his fiction, horror and supernatural story like thoughts into the real life-like events that have happened to him. He successfully makes use of the real events and the happenings in a natural way so that the reader never feels if the story is not a real thing.
Doctor Sleep Audiobook makes use of the characters from the Novel, where Dan has the shining in him and he starts going through the same pathway as his dad went through. But the fact is Dan keeps on feeling the connection with the evil thing in the Overlook hotel.
Another thing that makes the story a terrifying yet interesting for the readers is the existence of an apparently calm group of old people who are actually immortal and thrive on the steam of people who they kill to get the ‘shining’ the murdered person possesses.
In this story, Dan develops a telepathic connection with the girl named Abra, born with the ‘Shining’ and the bond develop stronger as the time passed away.
The quasi Immortal who have been thriving on the shining of the killed boy started to develop measles and they needed a remedy to stay alive. They though the shining from Abra’s steam would help them. That brings the Abra and Dan closer and Dan saves her from them.
The story has many interesting facts in it, the connection between the previous Novel Shining, the suspense, the horror and the continuous terror caused by the Quasi-immortals keeps on developing as the story proceeds and offer a lot of heart-gripping events that would definitely compel you to hear the story as a whole. Whether you have read or Shining before, you would never want to miss this one for sure.
