The Shining

Why did I read this book? I've seen the movie, shouldn't that have been enough? Nooooooooo, I had to go and read it and scare the pants off myself AGAIN! I just finished it last night at midnight (when the masks come off!) If you've read the book or seen the movie you'll get the reference...
At the end of the day I'm glad I read it. It gave me more insight into the movie, which is one of my absolute favourite horror movies of all time. I'm a huge fan of Stanley Kubrick as well, so that just deepens the love.
I was a bit shocked by the language in the book. Not the swearing so much as the racial slurs towards Mr. Hollorran. I don't remember that from the film. Having said that, I haven't seen it in years... I guess I'm going to have to rent it now, aren't I?
