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.
