“I read The Shining years ago and it was a scary...”

Written on: 23/11/2005 by alan cole (12 reviews written)

Good Points
A classic of horror.

Bad Points
Not for the feint hearted.

General Comments
I read The Shining years ago and it was a scary literary encounter. It's often regarded as King's best novel and is big on psychology and suspense. It's got some great set pieces and is actually a very absorbing study of breakdown and domestic abuse, following a writer and his family's decision to work as janitors in a ski resort hotel cut off by snow over the winter. The ending is different to the film!
