Finalmente ritrovo il vecchio King di cui mi ero innamorato da ragazzo. Non so davvero perchè ho perso questa perla in passato ma finalmente l'ho letto grazie al GdL che l'ha visto protagonista. ( )

I'm really sad I was never able to read the book before I was obsessed with the movie because this book would've scared the pants off me if I didn't know what was coming. That being said, the book and movie are two different entities and I love them both! ❤️‍ ( )

*Partial spoilers ahead*

Apart from the obvious fact that millions of people consider this novel a classic, I'm not sure what I can say in its favor. It's not a bad book, but The Shining suffers from an identity crisis. King was aiming for two things here--a good, solid horror narrative and a "serious" literary piece about the disintegration of a family--and those aims were never reconciled. In the end he kinda skimped on the horror, which was a disappointment since I go to King for scares rather than for literary melodrama. It's an odd imbalance, and even when the reader is granted a respite from the Torrance family soap opera, King devotes a lot of effort to imagery that struggles to come alive (the topiary lions) while merely touching on plot points that I found much more interesting (the background of Horace Derwent and his Mafia associates).

King eventually worked the bugs out of the horror/family formula in Pet Sematary, which arguably is his masterpiece. I read that book first, so The Shining was bound to seem a little ham-fisted by comparison. There are a few memorably creepy moments, but overall I prefer the film (Stanley Kubrick's version, of course) to the novel. ( )

C'est un livre qui expliquer le folie tres bonne. J'adore que le personnage principal est un enfant, Doc. la capacité
de le shining est un tres interesting chose qui est un peu difficile pour comprendre. C'est logique que il y a un film de cette film et je peux regarder immédiatement quand j'ai le temp. ( )

After years of not having read The Shining because the movie frightened me so much, I finally did read this novel in preparation to read Doctor Sleep. Perhaps it's true that you should always read the book first because I felt it lost something against the movie. I expected to be frightened out of my wits and I just wasn't. The suspense was fantastic but I do feel as if I lost something from seeing the film first.

Still highly recommended. ( )

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.
