I have always enjoyed the movie but hadn't gotten around to reading (listening) this till now.
I much prefer this.
Indent think I need to say much about any King book. they have all been great, so I can add that the narrator did a great job.
well worth the $ or credit.
I saw the movie when I was younger and thought it was good. But the book was so much better. That is why Stephen King is called the master of suspense.The way he describes the people and the hotel made me feel like I was there. I was experiencing everything the characters were. The reading by Campbell Scott was superb. He built up the suspense beautifully as well as voicing each character to match their description.
Very different from the movie. The movie is scarier and has so much more blood and disturbing imagery than the book. No hedge maze, no blood river from elevator, no big wheeling, the manuscript plays a much smaller role and the fun black guy from the beginning has a much larger role. Love both tellings!
I enjoyed it. Then again, I am trying to make it through the winter in an isolated farm house in Missouri. Fortunately, we don't croquet.
Towards the Top
Brings all the characters to life
There was a moment in the story that I honestly had to take a pause because it was too frightening
Great story and it gives so much more back story to the movie. I am a huge fan of the movie, but after hearing the audio book I feel cheated about the condensed story that was the movie.
Love the classics and good mysteries.
The movie doesn't hold a candle to they book. Loved the ride. You get to know the characters very well.
