4.0 out of 5 stars By far one of my favourite stories, 25 Nov 2010
By 
This review is from: The Shining (Hardcover)
I have tried to find out if books can give you the same feeling of fear like when watching scary movies. Apparently I have a very vivid imagination, because this book really scared me. First I was very sceptical because I feel Stephen King is selling books more because of his name, and not because of his talent. I would love to see one of his books where his name is not covering 50 % of the front cover, making only small room for the title. Plus, I had previously tried reading Misery (which I did not even finish) and The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and was not very impressed.
However, this book scared me so much and that is why I love it so much. Especially one particular scene, where the little boy, the protagonist, is trapped in a tube scared me and I am still haunted in my dreams by disfigured, crawling children.
However, I can't give the book 5 stars because I simply thought the intro/beginning was too long and boring. So long and boring that I almost made the mistake of quitting rest of the book.

Cool, No problem. You have a scary way of writing yourself, like "disfigured, crawling children" in your review. Maybe you should write something!
