About this item

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.

Hey, if you have ever watched the movie and liked it and like to read, you will love this more than the movie. To start off, they basicly start the same, but they head in a totaly new derction after it gets started. One thing that happend in the movie didnt happen in the book, making two different endings. It starts out with one of the main chracters, Jack Torrence, getting the job he applied for, wich is watching the overlook during the winter. He gets how it runs and his duties sttayened out, while his Wife, Wendy is at home with their on danny, getting ready to go. After alittle bit they get there, they settle in, get a tour and Danny already has a bad feeling about the place as he sees things others dont. After they are done with it, danny says good by to his freind, the cheif, and that leaves this family alone in this hotel, which has had a very gristly, dark past.......... it might be haunted.... Bottom line is though, Its a great story and I reviewed it to the best of how I could and I totaly reccomend it!

The book, "The Shining" adds to the detail that is not in the movie plus it is a tie in for S. King's new novel "Doctor Sleep". I would recommend that you read "The Shining" before you read "Sleep Doctor" however "Doctor Sleep" is a Great novel even if you just seen "The Shining" movie. I would Highly Recommend this novel to all fans of The Shining movie.
