5.0 out of 5 stars Yes its creepy. Yes it scared me. Yes I loved it.
Reviewed in India on November 12, 2017
My first Stephen King read. And I don't think I'll be reading another one anytime soon. Because this book gave me the creeps.
There have been so many books that left me disappointed despite being hyped and loved. And only very few that did live upto my expectations. Clearly, THE SHINING falls in the latter category. I had never read a horror-thriller book. I was always curious about how a book had the capability of evoking creepy disturbing thoughts in your head and leave you scared. THE SHINING made me experience all that. And that's why I loved it so much.
