Jack Torrance’s new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel, he’ll have plenty 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 more remote—and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five year old. He is a “shiner,” aglow with psychic voltage, and his frightening visions are growing out of control.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ubennyah | 2/9/2014

    " I think that the book has really scared me to death but there are some parts of the story that are too detailed or explained, which makes the story boring. The first part of the book was boring but later on when the real story begins it really speeds up. I think if you guys wants to get frighted, you should take this book but you must be patient to get the best part of the story. Enjoy reading it!:) "

    " This book wasn't scary exactly, it was tense and suspenseful. A good read. "
