The Overlook Hotel is more than just a home-away-from-home for the Torrance family. For Jack, Wendy, and their young son, Danny, it is a place where past horrors come to life. And where those gifted with the shining do battle with the darkest evils. Stephen King's classic thriller is one of the most powerfully imagined novels of our time.

Stephen King… at last!

I remember buying this book together with Jonathan Maberry’s “Ghost Road Blues”, but since that book was such a letdown I postponed the reading of “The Shining” a few months with the intention of feeling ready for yet another horror/thriller novel.

Unfortunately, this was also a letdown.

I didn’t get scared; fact is I felt more interested in Jack Torrance and his relationship with his father and son than the central plot. Many pages could’ve been avoided.

I feel kind of weird because I thought “The Shining” was going to be “The Book” that would open the door to a world of Horror. Maybe I should just stick to my noir-hardboiled- PI-detective Crime novels instead.

Filmen var mycket bättre än boken. Lite tråkig att läsa.
