A collection of books written by the King himself that I have read or am currently reading.

Shining

Situé dans les montagnes Rocheuses, l'Overlook Palace passe pour être l'un des plus beaux lieux du monde. Confort, luxe, volupté. L'hiver, l'hôtel est fermé. Coupé du monde par le froid et la neige. Alors, seul l'habite un gardien. Celui qui a été engagé cet hiver-là s'appelle Jack Torrance: c'est un alcoolique, un écrivain raté, qui tente d'échapper au désespoir. Avec lui vivent sa femme, Wendy, et leur enfant, Danny. Danny qui possède le don de voir, de ressusciter les choses et les êtres que l'on croit disparus. Ce qu'il sent, lui, dans les cent dix chambres vides de l'Overlook Palace, c'est la présence du démon. Cauchemar ou réalité, le corps de cette femme assassinéeoe ces bruits de fête qui dérivent dans les couloirs ? cette vie si étrange qui anime l'hôtel? Un récit envoûtant immortalisé à l'écran par Stanley Kubrick.

Doctor Sleep

An epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted readers of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon. 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 twelve-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 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 ...The first print run of DOCTOR SLEEP in paperback has two jacket styles. These are only available while stocks last and if you are ordering online we cannot guarantee which cover you will receive.
