Review: The Shining (The Shining #1)User Review - Kenny A - Goodreads
Great book. King has a way of developing characters that really fleshes them out, though he can tend to drone on a bit. Great plot with a great pace; the sense of dread built from the first few chapters and loomed from that point on. Highly recommended. Read full review

One of my favorite BFI treatments. Luckhurst does an excellent job with balancing plot synopsis with deconstruction and criticism. If you've never read a BFI book before, start here. Read full review
