Stephen King kehrt zu einem seiner berühmtesten Romane zurück: Der kleine Danny, der im Hotel Overlook so unter seinem besessenen Vater hat leiden müssen, ist nun erwachsen. Aber die Vergangenheit lässt ihn nicht los... (Quelle: Buchdeckel verso)."
  • ""Stephen King vuelve al mundo de El resplandor, una de sus novelas más queridas y emblemáticas. Ahora Danny Torrance, aquel niño aterrorizado del Hotel Overlook, es un adulto alcohólico y sin residencia fija que va de ciudad en ciudad atormentado por sus visiones y por los fantasmas de su infancia, que ha aprendido a controlar pero no a eliminar de su mente. Un día se siente atraído por una ciudad de New Hampshire, donde encontrará trabajo en una residencia de ancianos y donde se apuntará a las reuniones de Alcohólicos Anónimos. En ese lugar le llega la visión de Abra Stone, una niña que necesita su ayuda. La persigue una tribu de seres paranormales que vive del resplandor de los niños especiales. Parecen personas mayores y totalmente normales que viajan por el país en sus autocaravanas, pero su misión es capturar, torturar y consumir a estos niños. Se alimentan de ellos para vivir y el resplandor de Abra tiene tanta fuerza que les podría mantener vivos durante mucho tiempo. Danny sabe que sin su ayuda Abra nunca conseguiría escaparse de ellos; juntos emprenderán una lucha épica, una batalla sangrienta entre el Bien y el Mal, para intentar salvarla a ella y a los demás niños que sacrifican." --Solapa anterior."@es

  • ""The now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) must save a very special twelve-year-old girl 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 spunky twelve-year-old 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"--Provided by publisher."

  • "Die grosse Fortsetzung von 'Shining' Auf Amerikas Highways ist eine mörderische Sekte unterwegs. Sie hat es auf Kinder abgesehen, die das Shining haben. Stephen King kehrt zu den Figuren und Szenerien eines seiner berühmtesten Romane zurück: Der Dreirad fahrende kleine Danny, der im Hotel Overlook so unter seinem besessenen Vater hat leiden müssen, ist erwachsen geworden. Aber die Vergangenheit lässt ihn nicht los, und wieder gerät er in einen Kampf zwischen Gut und Böse. Die zwölfjährige Abra hat das Shining. Kann er sie retten? Nur mühevoll kann Dan Torrance die Schrecken verarbeiten, die er als kleines Kind im Hotel Overlook erlitten hat. Obendrein hat er die Suchtkrankheit seines besessenen Vaters geerbt und nimmt daher fleissig an Treffen der Anonymen Alkoholiker teil. Seine paranormalen Fähigkeiten - das Shining - setzt er nun in seinem Beruf ein: In einem Hospiz spendet er Sterbenden in ihren letzten Stunden Trost. Man nennt ihn liebevoll Doctor Sleep. Währenddessen ist in ganz Amerika eine Sekte auf der Suche nach ihrem Lebenselixier unterwegs. Ihre Mitglieder sehen so unscheinbar aus wie der landläufige Tourist - Ruheständler in Polyesterkleidung, die in ihr Wohnmobil vernarrt sind. Aber sie sind nahezu unsterblich, wenn sie sich vom letzten Lebenshauch jener Menschen ernähren, die das Shining besitzen. Das Mädchen Abra Stone besitzt es im Übermass und gerät ins Visier der mörderischen Sekte. Um sie zu retten, weckt Dan die tief in ihm schlummernden Dämonen und ruft sie in einen alles entscheidenden Kampf. Stephen King, 1947 in Portland, Maine, geboren, ist einer der erfolgreichsten amerikanischen Schriftsteller. Schon als Student veröffentlichte er Kurzgeschichten, sein erster Romanerfolg, 'Carrie', erlaubte ihm, sich nur noch dem Schreiben zu widmen. Seitdem hat er weltweit 400 Millionen Bücher in mehr als 40 Sprachen verkauft. Im November 2003 erhielt er den Sonderpreis der National Book Foundation für sein Lebenswerk."

  • "Grupa staruszków nazywająca się Prawdziwym Węzłem przemierza autostrady Ameryki w poszukiwaniu pożywienia. Z pozoru są nieszkodliwi-- emeryci odziani w poliester, nierozstający się ze swoimi samochodami turystycznymi. Jednak Dan Torrance już wie, a rezolutna dwunastolatka Abra Stone wkrótce się przekona, że Prawdziwy Węzeł to prawie nieśmiertelne istoty żywiące się substancją wytwarzaną przez poddane śmiertelnym torturom dzieci obdarzone tym samym darem, co Dan. Nękany przez mieszkańców hotelu Panorama, w którym jako dziecko spędził jedną straszliwą zimę, Dan przez dziesięciolecia błąka się po Ameryce, usiłując zrzucić z siebie odziedziczone po ojcu brzemię beznadziei, alkoholizmu i przemocy. Ostatecznie odnajduje swoje miejsce w małym miasteczku w New Hampshire, we wspierającej go grupie Anonimowych Alkoholików i w domu opieki, gdzie zachowana z lat dzieciństwa resztka mocy pozwala mu nieść ulgę umierającym w ostatnich chwilach ich życia. Staje się znany jako "Doktor Sen". Kiedy Dan poznaje efemeryczną Abrę Stone, jej nadzwyczajny dar budzi drzemiące w nim demony i każe mu stanąć do boju o jej duszę i przetrwanie. To epicka batalia między dobrem i złem, krwawa, pełna rozmachu opowieść, która zachwyci miliony miłośników Lśnienia i zadowoli każdego, kto dopiero teraz wkracza w świat tej już klasycznej pozycji w dorobku Kinga."
