The Shining

The Shining - Stephen King Obviously The Shining has been reviewed to death, so I’ll just say I enjoyed this and was struck by how different the book painted the Overlook Hotel and the darkness contained within it compared to the film, which I watched nearing the completion of the book. The ending was also a lot more satisfying, not to take anything away from Jack Nicholson’s performance but this is one of those books that I think any film would struggle to do it the justice it deserves.
