    长眠医生 | Doctor Sleep (The Shining #2) by Stephen King

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-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 spunky 12-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 "DoctorSleep."

    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. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    作为《闪灵》的续篇,《长眠医生》是斯蒂芬·金强势回归惊悚路线的精彩之作。

    成年后的丹尼•托伦斯深受超感预知能力“闪灵”之害,精神长期处于紧张状态,为摆脱其苦,沉溺酒中,像父亲杰克一样整日酗酒。因幼年目睹父亲因酗酒导致的精神分裂和最终的死亡惨剧,丹尼终于痛下决心加入AA戒酒协会,酒瘾得到控制的同时,长期被酒精压抑的“闪灵”之能也重新得到释放。他在一家医院供职,与一只能预测人之将死的猫一起,利用自己特殊的能力安抚处于弥留之际的病人,被大家称为“长眠医生”。他认识了一个同样具有“闪灵”能力的小女孩艾布拉。艾布拉正被一个靠吸取濒死之人的精神能量来维持生存的神秘组织真结族追踪。丹尼迫在眉睫的使命,便是将这个与他有着共同命运的小女孩解救出来……
