Audio Book Summary

Before Doctor Sleep, there was The Shining, a classic of modern American horror from the undisputed master, Stephen King.


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.

    My absolute favorite book ever! This was my first time hearing/reading the novel... And it's sooooo much better than the movie, and that USED to be my favorite movie! But now, I don't think i can ever watch the movie again without being utterly disappointed. They could have done so much more with the movie. What a let down! I highly recommend this book! It's amazing!

    I love Campbell Scott as the narrator for this creepy yet wonderful tale. He is exactly what I look for in a narrator. I'm just getting into King's work and this novel was amazing. it kept me going on my long commute every day.

    Only 6 hours into the book and am amazed at all the info missing from the movie. The book is amazing. I can't to get to the end! I'm not a fan of the narrator's voices but his annunciation is great. Some times the way he starts sentences is JOLTING. Especially when he goes from Wendy's soft voice to pretty much anything else. But I still like be listening to.

    This book is fantastic. I first saw the movie in the miniseries before deciding to read the book. As the saying goes the book is way better than movies. The narrator did a pretty good job doing the different voices. I didn't like him at the beginning but I got used to him.
