When my son was four I read him the monster at the end of this book. It was both of our first time. When it was done, I closed it and just sat there. Floored. What a story. What an ending.      source

The first time I saw the Dr Sleep trailer and they showed bits of the attic, I knew they got it right. It’s a great book and equally great movie. Also you have to remember King wrote Sleep as a sequel to his shining BOOK, not Kubrick‘s movie. So Flanagan had some work to do.      source
