Nelson DeMille deserves a spot among the top ten at least of popular fiction, I think. His male leads are all guys it would be cool to be... Funny and girls falling into his lap... Literally. You would think the formula would wear thin but it doesn't ...more

I've picked up several Stephen King novels because his writing is amazing. Some are just too odd and confusing and long to finish. Not so with Doctor Sleep. Wow. Very taunt from start to finish. Creepy in a cool way. Redeeming. I loved this book.
