This book took me a little longer to get into than it did with SK's previous installments, but once I did get into it... oh boy, I could barely put it down!

One thing I love about Mr Mercedes is how different it is from all of the books in SK's 30+ year career; there's nothing supernatural here or monsters lurking in the shadows, but there is a frighteningly convincing maniac who simply wants to watch the world burn. It was actually when the book introduced this character (Brady Hartfield) that I really got hooked. He is without a doubt, one of SK's creepiest villains.

Thankfully, Stephen King pulls it off in a story that doesn't just work as a sequel, but as a stand alone novel too.

Don't get me wrong, if you haven't read The Shining, I insist you do before Doctor Sleep. Some of the creepier moments will touch some of your nerves with much greater effect. But if you don't, it's still a great read.

That being said, as tense and nerve racking as some of the moments were in this story, I can't say I… Read more
