An Horror Story that deals with more than just Ghosts,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Shining (Paperback)
The characters drawn in this novel are intense and deeply motivated. This is a superb book - spooky and emotional . The gradual demise of Torrance is dealt with by King in an enduring and often depressing manner. Child Abuse and alcohol abuse are addressed and as much of the horror of this book as the the ghosts of the Overlook Hotel. Only Stephen King can write such a claustrophobic book as this and one that will be read again and again -- This book is often uncomfortable but the reader will go back for more. Vintage King -- Enjoy!
