Before Doctor Sleep, there was The Shining, a classic of modern American horror from the undisputed master, Stephen King.
Danny is only five years old, but in the words of old Mr Hallorann he is a 'shiner', aglow with psychic voltage. When his father becomes caretaker of the Overlook Hotel, Danny's visions grow out of control.
As winter closes in and blizzards cut them off, the hotel seems to develop a life of its own. It is meant to be empty. So who is the lady in Room 217 and who are the masked guests going up and down in the elevator? And why do the hedges shaped like animals seem so alive?
Somewhere, somehow, there is an evil force in the hotel - and that, too, is beginning to shine . . .

This book does anything but shine
I enjoyed this novel, however there were many errors I failed to admire. From the chapter of late night thoughts, to the over described lady in Room 217. So whilst the plot was a thrill. The words were a disappointment. Overall I recommend this book for people whom have little else to do with their life, apart from reading yet another Stephen King novel.
I rate the book a 3.8/5 (rounded to 4).
