Genre: Horror, Suspense
Format: Paperback
Online Rating: 4 1/2 Stars
My Rating: 5 Stars
"A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future." - IMDB
The book is different from the movie in a big way, not to throw out spoilers, but the book ends differently than the movie. This is one HUGE reason to read the book and see the movie. The good news is that both have equal amounts of suspense and horror. The book however is more creepy because of the journey that King takes you on that can't be felt in the movie. Overall, the book is awesome!
