I am brutally honest. Popular, love everything they read, reviewers are scared to go neg. and risk their ranking. It's your money!!!
After being amazed that a Stephen King masterpiece actually went on sale, I was again amazed at the listening again. In the first reading you may be scared over one of the scariest books ever written. In the second reading you might want to concentrate on the writing, the dissection of anger and human behavior. King could write in any genre and be considered a genius. I am only glad he chose horror. I belong to a family in which anger is very present and all those things that go through Jack's mind, happen a lot more than you probably think. Keep that in mind when you get one of those fake smiles from someone you are dealing with.
Grab this at the sale price while you can. In five years I have rarely seen a King masterpiece go on sale.
OK, so the reading was a bit monotonous for my taste, but I didn't have a bit of trouble sinking into the story.
The Shining is terrifying and fascinating, a wonderful book by Stephen King about ghosts, evil, alcoholism, and manipulation. The characters are easy to love and hate, the setting is spooky and wonderfully vivid. You can't go wrong with this one.
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!
