I'm an avid reader, writer, and blogger. I have a diverse taste in books, everything from new releases to classics.
This is another great Stephen King novel, but of course he almost never disappoint you. (The only disappointing one was The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. I didn't think that girl would ever get out of the woods.)
The Shining shows Stephen's exceptional imagination and storytelling. His characters have depth and although the novel is a bit long, it doesn't feel long because he keeps moving the story forward. I love the creepiness and the more screwed up the characters, the better. Whenever I read one of his novels, I want to immediately read another one.
