Jack Torrance's new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel, he'll have plenty of time to spend reconnecting with his family and working on his writing. But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote...and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.

"A master storyteller." (Los Angeles Times)
"He's the author who can always make the improbable so scary you'll feel compelled to check the locks on the front door." (The Boston Globe)
"Scary!... Serves up horrors at a brisk, unflagging pace." (The New York Times)
The narrator was great. I was able to understand him along with the story. However, I'm a bit disappointed with the ending but that is just personal overall great book!
Simply awesome. I love Stephen King. Had seen the movie a long time ago, but never had the time to read the book. I'm so sorry I had not read this one sooner. Great book. So much better than the movie.
If you liked the movie- you'll love the book. Truly a masterpiece of the horror and supernatural. The narration was a perfect. It brought out the suspense and characters... A definite must listen for any Stephen King fan. Bravo!
A busy lady, just tryin' to fit her reading in where she can!
To anyone who loves a spooky story, this is a classic, the movies stay somewhat true to the story lines, but do not have the same character development as the book. I would highly recommend this audiobook.
I honestly haven't read too many haunted house or haunted hotel stories, so i don't have good comparison.
The depth of the character voices and personalities really shines through Mr. Scott's reading.
It was a film and a tv mini series.
I love this book, I have read this book about 5 times, so when I saw it on audible and thought let's see what the voice does for the story, since it was not the one I made in my mind. It was wonderful, I fell in love with the book all over again! So much better than I thought it would be!
