First Lines of Stephen King's "Doctor Sleep"

"On the second day of December in a year when a Georgia peanut farmer was doing business in the White House, one of Colorado's great resort hotels burned to the ground. The Overlook was declared a total loss."

- Stephen King, from Doctor Sleep.

I didn't want to be reading another SK book, but I flipped through the first few pages of this sequel to The Shining, depicting Danny as a middle-aged alcoholic whose shining has come back with a vengeance, and was (of course) hooked. Damn him. More when I come up for air - most likely after a sleepless night spent plowing through the last 150 pages.
