The Shining is a must-read to all! If you have seen the movie, I must recommend you read the book! If you have not seen the movie, you most certainly should both read the book and watch the movie; both are incredible! In this novel, Stephen King takes horror to the next level, and has the hair on the back of your neck standing up from the very first page. It is next to impossible to put this book down, so you better be ready for an all-nighter! This is just another fabulous thrill ride from the most famous horror writer of all time, and if you have not read this novel it is time to indulge your senses in this epic story!

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.
