I'd seen the movie a few times and always loved it, one of the best horror movies ever made. Basically I wanted to explore the plot a little more and initially that's what I was doing. There was some more background to the story and a bit more about the 'shining', which promised to be intriguing but as I progressed this book started to drag more and more. Some parts were really long winded and at times the writing style irked me, so I really had to force myself to finish it.

Of course, even though the book is not exactly the same as the film, I reckon that knowing what is going to happen is fairly damaging for the enjoyment of a horror book. Still, for me, The Shining was underwhelming. Must admit I'm disappointed, considering how much I love the movie. I'll round up to 3 stars because without this the movie wouldn't have existed. Nor the hilarious Simpsons parody. Go crazy? Don't mind if I do!

Still one of my favorite books ever. Got so many more details after not reading it for so long. ( )

This was my second Stephen King read and it has its pros and cons. Cons are that it's a slow read, and definitely not PC anymore with a lot of vulgar language that I think takes away the focus on plot and character development. Good storytelling, strong female character with Wendy the wife, and great writing style with multiple POV, and the worldbuilding for the "shine" is really interesting to hear about. Will probably read Dr. Sleep down the toad, but whenever I read Stephen King, I need a palette clenser to help with the gruesomeness that I cant seem to stop thinking about.
This one is definitely spooky, but Pet Semetary is still my favorite so far for SK. ( )

Potato chip reading. Classic King. ( )

Finally finished this book. I started it in the 8th grade but could not get into it.
It was ok, definitely not one of his best. ( )

It was in this apartment, also, that there stood against the western wall, a gigantic clock of ebony.  Its pendulum swung to and fro with a dull, heavy, monotonous clang; and when the minute-hand made the circuit of the face, and the hour was to be stricken, there came from the brazen lungs of the clock a sound which was clear and loud and deep and exceedingly musical, but of so peculiar a note and emphasis that,
at each lapse of an hour, the musicians of the orchestra were constrained to pause, momentarily, in their performance, to harken to the sound; and thus the waltzers perforce ceased their evolutions; and there was a brief disconcert of the whole gay company; and, while the chimes of the clock yet rang, it was observed that the giddiest grew pale, and the more aged and sedate passed their hands over their brows as if in confused revery or meditation.  But when the echoes had fully ceased, a light laughter at once pervaded the assembly; the musicians looked at each other and smiled as if at their own nervousness and folly, and made whispering vows, each to the other, that the next chiming of the clock should produce in them no similar emotion; and then, after the lapse of sixty minutes, (which embrace three thousand and six hundred seconds of the Time that flies,) there came yet another chiming of the clock, and then were the same disconcert and tremulousness and meditation as before.
But, in spite of these things, it was a gay and magnificent revel.
