Review: The Shining (The Shining #1)User Review - Kenny A - Goodreads
Great book. King has a way of developing characters that really fleshes them out, though he can tend to drone on a bit. Great plot with a great pace; the sense of dread built from the first few chapters and loomed from that point on. Highly recommended. Read full review
Review: The Shining (The Shining #1)User Review - Tom - Goodreads
Another great novel by Stephen King. Some parts really got to me and freaked me out, which made it an even better read. I enjoyed how he gets you to see and feel the struggles of each character (good and bad). I'll more than likely pick up the sequel soon enough. Read full review
