    Boring and a waste of time for me. Lots of people seemed to like it... I, for one... did not. I could not wait for it to end. I hated the book though... it is the only King book I fought through and is my lowest rated King novel.

    You're rating it below Lisey's Story, Gerald's Game, Faithful, Gwendy's, Tommyknockers, Cell and Sleeping Beauties? Really? He's had a few clunkers for sure, but this one is he worst or the worst for you? I mean if only for the fact that the first few chapters represent an epilogue for Danny, Halloran and Wendy has to count for something. The Shining is arguably his best novel so anything following up on it should rate above some of the books listed herein, no?

    I did not care too much for DOCTOR SLEEP the novel, although it was certainly readable, but I found myself enjoying the movie version quite a lot.
    My brother, who did NOT read the book, disliked the movie quite a lot.
    What the above means, I'm not really sure.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    Just watched on 4K disc (just the theatrical version so far). I really expected to be disappointed, but I was pleasantly surprised. At first I didn't like ....

    Spoiler:

    ... the idea of revisiting the overlook, but then I liked it. It was kind of fun "rooting" for the Overlook


    Looking forward to watching the directors cut (maybe this weekend).

    I liked the book, I felt it was one of his best in the last 20 years or so. (probably in the middle of the pack over all for me). I agree with Bill on the list of stinkers above (exept Gwendy, which I kind of liked).

    I thought the actors they cast for Halloran and Wendy did a good homage to the original actors. (Jack Torrance not so much)

    Also, replace 1st/1st that got stolen:

    I haven't read the book, but I thought the film wad solid. I'm a big fa of Mike Flanagan. Hear the Director's Cut is even better.
