Description



About the Book



Jack Torrance makes a fresh start with a new job at the Overlook Hotel, but as the harsh winter sets in, the idyllic location begins to feel more sinister. The only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.



Book Synopsis



Before Doctor Sleep, there was The Shining, a classic of modern American horror from the undisputed master, Stephen King.

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.

Not bad of a book. Kind of scary and definitely sets a standard for horror. Definitely different from the movie.

I've loved the book, but we got this copy for our daughter (13) who is already a fourth of the way done in a matter of days! Such an interesting story, like all of SK's work!
