The Shining by Stephen King

Dysfunctional family gets collective ass kicked by haunted hotel.

I think The Shining is probably my favorite Stephen King book–and that includes the Dark Tower books. And I’m always tickled at how different it is from the Kubrick movie–and how I can love them both as complete works without needed them to resemble one another. My husband decided he’d give King a try, having never read any of his books, and asked me which one. I didn’t hesitate before recommending this one to him, and he’s really been enjoying it. I’m torn on which one to suggest he read next–for selfish reasons I want to say Cujo, because I’m in the mood to reread it myself, but I think The Dead Zone is more up his alley.
