BookLender review by Jim V. on 2010-01-11 16:41:04

As a long time fan I have read just about everything King ever wrote but for some reason I never read The Shining so other than the hype about the movies I was unfamiliar with the details of the story. The beginning is slow and somewhat depressing sorry Mr. King but once it gets going it just never stops! I listen during my hour commute each way and there were a couple times when I would sit in the parking lot at work or my garage for more than 15 minutes totally engrossed in the story. This is a must listen for anyone like me who has not read the book or seen the movies - for others, try it anyway - I think you'll like it.
