Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Evil forces try to destroy a boy with psychic powers.

David Hollingsworth, August 5, 2007 (view all comments by David Hollingsworth)
This novel takes you straight into the heart of evil, and it has a very disturbing atmosphere as you read it. This is one of King's better works of suspenseful literature. Read it, and you shall see what I'm talking about.
