I keep the Shining in my history because you get alot more insight than in the movie'
Wendy, because she did not not know what was going on.
His voice tends to put you asleep
Jack, he was just a person being used by the Hotel.
When my brother told me about Doctor Sleep, I realised I'd never actually read The Shining. I've seen the Jack Nicholson movie several times, but hadn't actually read it. Can I just say, wow! This story is so much deeper than the movie portrayed. I know, that's to be expected, but this just opened up whole new plots that I had NO idea even existed! Its a MUST-READ before Doctor Sleep. Shine on, my friends!
I would as the narrator does an excellent job showing the Jack's fall to madness.
I think my favorite scene was where Jack was in the elevator and Danny and Wendy both began seeing some of what he was.
I would recommend breaking this into smaller segments, taking time to absorb the ambience.
The shining is a thriller and one of my favorite Stephen King books I have listened to. It portrays a struggling family clinging on to hope and finding hope in a hotel. But the hotel has a sinister side only those who have worked there before know of. Jack finds a bunch of old newspaper clippings in the basement and quickly learns he is in a world of trouble. This part reminds me of Sinister when he finds the films in the attic.
