20-something wife and fur momma to three babies. Education major. Literature nut.
About 4 hours in I realized I couldn't stand the narration. Too breathy, and just...I don't know how to explain it. But, the story was also dragged out. Like REALLY dragged out, and became incredibly boring. If you're expecting anything remotely similar to the Shining, this is not it.
Top of my list.
I would have to say The Shining for obvious reasons.
Rose The Hat- Powerful-deceitful and evil beyond my wildest fears.
Would love to see it made into a movie-but think it impossible.
I can't say enough good things about this sequel to The Shining. King really brings It by showing us grown up Danny!!! I will always look for Will Patton as a narrator from now on.
This book, while carrying a different tone of its precursor, is very much the story of hardship one would expect of the boy who survived not only is alcoholic father's wrath, but the mysterious hell that is the iconic Overlook Hotel. I would recommend this novel to anyone curious enough to hunt for that boy now grown into a man that despite his flaws we still pray for his success. Read and join this man finding out there is more to life than suffering in the past when he discovers a young girl in need of his help. "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear."
