Doctor Sleep : a novel by Stephen King( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in French and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) must save a very special twelve-year-old girl 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 spunky twelve-year-old 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

"In a mega-stakes, high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely and winning heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands. In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. In another part of town, months later, a retired cop named Bill Hodges is still haunted by the unsolved crime. When he gets a crazed letter from someone who self-identifies as the "perk" and threatens an even more diabolical attack, Hodges wakes up from his depressed and vacant retirement, hell-bent on preventing another tragedy. Brady Hartfield lives with his alcoholic mother in the house where he was born. He loved the feel of death under the wheels of the Mercedes, and he wants that rush again. Only Bill Hodges, with a couple of highly unlikely allies, can apprehend the killer before he strikes again. And they have no time to lose, because Brady's next mission, if it succeeds, will kill or maim thousands. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable"--

En esta novela brillante, Stephen King acompaña al lector en un viaje maravilloso al pasado y en un intento de cambiar lo que pasó. Nos ofrece un impecable retrato social, político y cultural del final de los años 50 y principios de los 60; un mundo marcado por coches enormes, Elvis Presley y el humo de los cigarrillos que flota por todas partes. Todo empieza con Jake Epping, profesor de inglés en el instituto de Lisbon Falls, Maine, que se gana un sueldo extra con clases nocturnas para adultos. Un día les pide a sus estudiantes que escriban sobre un acontecimiento que les haya cambiado la vida, y una de estas redacciones le impactará profundamente: la historia cruenta de una noche de hace cincuenta años cuando el padre de Harry Dunning volvió a casa para matar a su madre, hermano y hermana con un martillo. Al leer esta redacción algo cambia en Jake; su vida, igual que aquel día en Dallas de 1963, cambia por completo en tan solo un instante. Poco después su amigo Al, propietario de un dinerY así comienza la nueva vida de Jake como George Amberson, en un mundo muy diferente. En él, George se enamorará mientras sigue el rastro de Lee Harvey Oswald hacia un momento histórico que quizás ahora nunca se produzca. Un viaje al pasado nunca ha sido tan creíble, ni tan terrorífico
