Stephen 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 12-year old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals.

An ironic title, given I normally like to go to sleep listening to my audiobooks. This book ticked all the boxes, EXCEPT for lulling me to sleep!

The house looked right, felt right to Dr Louis Creed. Rambling, old, unsmart and comfortable. A place where the family could settle, the children grow and play and explore. The rolling hills and meadows of Maine seemed a world away from the fume-choked dangers of Chicago. Only the occasional big truck out on the two-lane highway, grinding up through the gears, hammering down the long gradients, growled out an intrusive threat. But behind the house and far away from the road: that was safe.

What made the experience of listening to Pet Sematary the most enjoyable?

I originally bought this book, as I am a big fan of Michael C Hall and saw he was the narrator.

What other book might you compare Pet Sematary to, and why?

I enjoyed reading 'The Shining' as a teenager, and had forgotten how scary Stephen King's books could be.

What about Michael C. Hall’s performance did you like?

Michael C Hall effortlessly creates the tension required to keep you hanging off his every word.

Any additional comments?

If he were to narrate other Stephen King books, I would happily purchase them all.
