This book isnt like The Shinning at all. ...and that's OK.
This book is like an "action adventure" compared to T.S. . The end of
the story is a "shoot out" of sorts,... its like the shoot out at the
OK coral... Danny and Abra are something more a'kin to gunslingers.
Abra is a normal kid , compared to Charlie or Carrie or Danny, she has a happy
life , mostly normal, She is a happy-go-lucky kid , until ...well you know.
she uses her power to do practical Jokes- even at age 3 . Kings other 'child hero's'
were all serious, somber, abused kids (or ignored in Jake's case). Like I said before.
This Abra Kid is a HOOT !!! . (TGWLTG , Trisha , is another exception).
Dr sleep is fast paced and action packed , not at all like the Shinning ,
To me the Shinning was "lovecraftian" , moody, dark,lots of images
and feelings, not much action. I love both books, for different reasons
