One of the creepiest books that does develop slowly but effectively, read it before watching the movie or the movie's version will ruin that development.

King writes the characters well and ends the book appropriately, but I will not ruin it by saying more. Read this book before you travel to the mountians to stay at a cozy lodge.

Top twenty horror books of all time, in my opinion.

As all of Mr. King's books, this was amazing. This book is very scary, it can cause some readers to sleep with the lights on.

The Overlook hotel, is not a place anyone wants to be during the winter when it is closed. Scary things happen and the care takers have a tendency to become victims.

This is a must read for any fan of Mr. King!

The shining was a very good book. I would say it was much scarier than the two movies made from it. Although the original movie was closer to the way the book is than the remake of it.With all Steven Kings books and movies you get to like certain characters and feel sorry for them when bad things happen. I really liked the little boy Danny. This is one of those books i could read a dozen or more times and not get tired of it.
