The Shining by Stephen King
- The Narrative
- The Characters
To write about the books of Stephen King a thankless task.
Firstly because they are so popular that they read it and without my opinion. Secondly because they read everything, and something new and original it’s hard to say. Everything has already been written and said to us. However, I’ll try to tell about the “Glow” not from the point of view of artistic value or story features, but from the point of view of my relationship with the king. And they are tough.
The first book I have read during the first summer session. The University generally fertile time when should nothing to anybody, except teachers, and there is plenty of time to read (compared to the lack of time after the release it is really so). It so happened that I bought two books at once and swallowed them in a couple of days. All this time I was afraid to go in the hallway and went into the bathroom, turning on the pre-light and wide open the door, and checking all the corners for the presence of something otherworldly. I scolded myself, why would I spend on these books the time when you need to prepare for the next test, and hell I can’t go out to buy food, and go to sleep, in General, too scary. My mind has stolen all the details about the story and the characters, so I don’t even remember what it was for books.
Since then, close to the king to come I promise. The obvious pleasure his books I do not bring, use, too, so to “Shine” all the King passed me.
However, this year it so happened that in the framework of one event (more on this in future posts) I had to read one book of my choosing in the horror genre (horror). Digging in the guidelines so long not to think, I took the most popular and highly rated book on Goodreads. It was “The Shining”, the book is 1977, which is still read and reread all over the world. The name I have met incredible amount of time and the Kubrick film is so stuffed mouth grin of the protagonist that I thought, well, the same can not be so popular book, which at night awake and afraid of the dark? She’s probably just well-written and the plot is exciting. Ha. Ha. Ha.
