Not suggested to be listened to at night, The Shining is nothing like the movie- a well told story that despite the main character's ability to see the future keeps you guessing what will happen next. Wonderful narration that actually does distinct voices for every character.
This book is far better than the movie adaptation. I'm not sure what Stanley Kubrick was thinking but what he did to Stephen King's original novel borders on criminal.
Performance by Campbell Scott could have been better. He whispers when he should be screaming. At times it seems like he's rushing to finish. Otherwise fantastic story, a classic.
Dr. Sleep was my first King novel. a gift for birthday; I've been hooked since then. So reading The Shining was a must. Amazing piece of art, Jack was so intriguing, so raw, so enticing. I now understand Danny's tendencies in the sequel
This is my first Audible review ever so please bear with me. I didn't know what to expect from an audio (this being my first one) and I loved it. The pace was well, the emotions were believable and not rushed. Everything about it was very well done.
