Moteand sinister And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance a uniuely gifted five year old uite simply put The Shining is the best horror story I have ever read It scared the hell out of meOver a period of time I have noticed certain standard motifs in horror stories One of these I call The Lost Child Such stories will typically involve a child who can see what the silly grownups cannot see or even if they do see don't acknowledge because it goes against reason and logic and who fights however high the odds stacked against him her are Danny Torrance is such a boyDanny can read minds He can see the frightening thoughts inside his Dad's and Mom's heads DIVORCE SUICIDE but is powerless to do anything about it Danny does not know that he has a gift; he takes it as a matter of course until Dick Halloran of the Overlook Hotel tells him that he shines onJack Torrance Danny's Dad reformed alcoholic and struggling writer is trying to put his life back together after a tragedy He gets what he sees as the ideal chance when he lands the job of caretaker of the Overlook Hotel for the winter In the snowed in hotel with only his son and wife Wendy Jack assumes that he will get enough uality time to be with his family patch up old uarrels and write that breakout novelBut the Overlook has other plans The hotel which feeds on and grows in strength from the evils committed on its premises wants Danny permanently to join its crew of ghostly inhabitants And to do that it needs to get to JackThe novel slowly grows in horror starting with mild unease moving up through sweaty palms and dry mouth to pure gut wrenching terror Jack's slow slide into madness is paralleled by the growth in power of the hotel's dark miasma and Danny's extraordinary capabilities We are on a roller coaster ride into darknessThe world of grownups is often frighteningly incomprehensible to young children these fears seldom die as we grow up but remain dormant in our psyche There are very few of us who does not have a ghost in our childhood somewhere It is when the writer invokes this ghost that story gets to us King does a masterly job of awakening that child and putting him her in the midst of childhood terrors through the alter ego of Danny Torrance lost in the cavernous corridors of the OverlookThere are a lot of passages which literally creeped me out in this novel the topiary animals the fire hose in the corridor the woman in the bathroom to name a few As King has said elsewhere the monster behind the door is frightening than the monster slavering at you this book is full of such monsters More importantly you will keep on remembering your own boogeymen while you are reading; and long after you finish you will feel the urge to look behind youHorror stories are a form of catharsis As King says the writer takes you to the body covered under the sheet you feel it and are frightened At the same time you are relieved that the body is not youA true masterpiece

The ShiningPlenty of time to spend reconnecting with his family and working on his writing But as the harsh winter weather sets in the idyllic location feels ever re Is this horror I'm genuinely asking here because I'm not a horror aficionado so I don't know what all constitutes that genre To a layman like myself IT was horror because it scared the piss out of me and I couldn't sleep without the lights on for a while The Shining is like a Spooky Family Drama Yeah yeah there at the end things got a little hairy but it was still mostly a human trotting around getting all stabbyNow I say mostly because good old Jack is getting some help from a couple of freaky paranormal spectres andTHE HEDGESIn an effort to be transparent I feel like I should mention that I've never actually watched the movie that was based on this bestselling novel My husband who has long since stopped being surprised by me gasped out loud when I told him that a few days ago So I'm guessing from his reaction that I'm probably in the minority Now normally whether or not you've seen the movie doesn't matter at all but this is a pretty iconic movie we're talking about so even without having seen it I kind of knew the plot a bit and of course knew who acted the starring roles I know I know None of that matters at all when you're talking about a book But I just thought it might be relevant because the movie is so incredibly well known that even peasants like myself who haven't seen it immediately recognize certain images from the filmI said that to say this Jack Nicholson is definitely not the Jack Torrence I was seeing in my head as described by Stephen King King's Jack was a handsome young guy who was married to a beautiful woman Now Shelly Duval is a fine actor and so is Nicholson ButAnyway I was just surprised to find out that the characters in the book were hotties I've heard the book and movie are very different in a lot of ways but that both are good if taken separately I'm planning to rent the movie soon and find outAlright The gist is that there's this guy Jack who made a few mistakes because he was a bit boozy and is now trying to go straight and get it together for his family He's a bit of a pompous ass truth be told One of those people who feel as though everyone around them just doesn't understand their tortured genius you know But he's not just that guy Which is where King's brilliance as a writer comes in He doesn't make Jack the bad guy he makes Jack a guy He's trying He's trying so hard to stay on the wagon he's trying so hard to be a better husband and he's trying so hard to be the father Danny deservesAnd if he hadn't landed a job at a fucking Haunted Hotel I truly believe he would have made it workOr maybe notRegardless Jack is only one of the important characters in this Hallmark Family Movie Channel story You also have Jack's sweet and beautiful if a bit too mousy and faithful to the old fucker wife Wendy And of course their little son DannyDanny has The Shine which when I found this out FINALLY explained the name of this fucking book to me Do you know how many years this has been subconsciously niggling at my brain Well neither do IBut when fellow psychic mind reader and hotel employee Dick Hallorann tells Danny what rooms to avoid over the winter because he can feel Danny's super bright Shine It was like a puzzle I didn't even know I was trying to solve clicked into place It was one of those moments you have where you suddenly realize that there's one less thing you don't know For one brief second I felt like the universe had given me a high five I hadn't asked for and then didn't even pull away at the last secondSo what happens when you toss a recovering alcoholic with a penchant towards abusive behavior an overly optimistic woman who tends to flutter instead of walk and a 5 year old who can tell what they are both thinking inside of a hotel that basically wants to eat themWell I don't want to spoil anything for the 3 people who don't know how all this turns out butAnyway Good stuff I'm glad my pals forced me once again outside my comfort zoneBuddy Read with The Jeff The Angry German 416Because who doesn't like child abuse
