The Shining - Stephen King

Didn't finish

Somehow I've got through my reading career without encountering any Stephen King. And this novel has moments of brilliance, both in terms of the quality of the writing and the psychological disquiet. But it was so hard-going that I forced myself to read it in small batches until I realised I really didn't have to. Will I read more King? Hmm, maybe, but there are many other writers I'd rather try first.
