    Description

    Before Doctor Sleep, there was The Shining, a classic of modern American horror from the undisputed master, Stephen King.

    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.

    ©1977 Stephen King (P)2005 Random House Audio

    A classic

    Not my favorite King story, but the characters are great, the narration was sometimes underwhelming and robotic but decent most of the time

    A good audiobook overall !

    Don't expect the movie...

    Any additional comments?

    I think this audiobook will suffer from people comparing it to the movie. The movie story had very little to do with the actual novel. While the movie eventually reached classic status, the story and character development veered wildly from King's vision, quite notoriously and controversially. The movie is fantastic in its own right but should stand alone. If you are looking for an audio version of the movie or Jack Nicholson's performance, you should give this a pass.

    That being said the novel is a tremendously gripping and horrifying read, bringing you along as the characters are more and more absorbed by the forces at work. The centerpiece is the hotel, and King paints an amazing picture over the course of the book, giving the Overlook a back story, a personality and a voice. Campbell Scott does an admirable job capturing the myriad of voices and emotions. A very tough assignment given that he not only has to portray a woman and child, but inner voices and distinguish between lucidity and madness. His performance did not take me out of the story at all and that is a tall order in a suspense piece. I enjoyed every minute listening to this book and when listening at night was truly scared at times.

    THE FOG OF ANGER

    Jack's Anger
    After being amazed that a Stephen King masterpiece actually went on sale, I was again amazed at the listening again. In the first reading you may be scared over one of the scariest books ever written. In the second reading you might want to concentrate on the writing, the dissection of anger and human behavior. King could write in any genre and be considered a genius. I am only glad he chose horror. I belong to a family in which anger is very present and all those things that go through Jack's mind, happen a lot more than you probably think. Keep that in mind when you get one of those fake smiles from someone you are dealing with.

    Grab this at the sale price while you can. In five years I have rarely seen a King masterpiece go on sale.

    Read this book if you've only seen the film...

    ...because the book is a much more well-developed story. I saw the movie as a kid and watched it again just after finishing the novel for the first time. While I can understand why the film is iconic, it is a completely different interpretation of King's story and in my opinion just doesn't have as much depth or emotion. And I'm a Kubrick fan!

    The story that most of us know: A writer takes his young family from Vermont out west to Colorado as he has taken a position as caretaker of a secluded hotel during its off season. King tackles issues such as alcoholism, self-esteem, and the strength of the family unit while telling a deliciously frightening story of the demons of the Overlook Hotel. He is one of the most talented storytellers out there, and I spent a good deal of time sitting in my driveway to listen to the end of a chapter before turning the car off and going inside my house.

    Campbell Scott put me off at first as a narrator - I thought him to be a little too monotone at first, it was lolling me into a zone, not good when one is driving. But I stuck with him and he did brilliantly acting out the different characters, particularly the violent angry ones and I felt my pulse quicken during those parts.

    I know it's said over and over again that the book is always better than the movie, but it's especially true in this case. Please treat yourself to this story, now one of my favorites by King.

    A Pure Performance

    The Shining - Review

    As to the performance: it certainly wasn't monotone. The voices are all immaculate and extremely consistent; with a smooth delivery of the constant insertion and switching of inner voice to spoken voice that keeps the listener immersed and dramatizes the story amazingly well. What people are confusing "monotone" with, I think, at the beginning of the story is a wonderful and delicate subtlety.

    As the madness sets in the dramatization becomes a very intense and accurate portrayal of the characters. I really don't understand how anyone can consider this narrator to be anything other than perfectly cast.

    The statement that comes to my mind is: "A pure performance."

    As to the story itself: there was a point at the beginning in which I distinctly remember thinking: this certainly isn't King's best work. It certainly started a little slow and a little dull; not what I'd expected from a Stephen King masterpiece. That was part one. Part two picked up well enough. After that the story continued to get better and better until the fifth part, the climax which I couldn't "put down" until I'd finished the story.

    Problems :(

    I am currently on chapter 19.. was loving it completely so far, until now. The chapter keeps skipping. I was thinking maybe it was the audible app. I have restarted it and my phone. But no, this book skips and completely stops reading at different intervals in this chapter. The words slowly fade away and then jump right back in at a different, not so far ahead, part of the paragraph.

    Book is 5 stars, the reader is 3-4

    While I enjoyed the book very much, I had to convince myself to keep listening during the first several chapters. The reader was lackluster.

    Drowsy, Monotonous Narrator Ruins a Great Story

    I LOVE Stephen King’s work, and this is no exception. The Shining deserves all the accolades it’s gotten over the years and more. It’s one of the most frightening and engaging books I’ve ever read. And so it was a deep disappointment to hear it mangled by the monotonous voice of this narcoleptic narrator. I couldn’t tell the difference between Jack and Wendy in conversation, and so it was unclear who was talking whenever there was no written indicator. In a word, it sucked. And it shouldn’t have. PLEASE redo this with a reader who isn’t half asleep at the wheel. It’s one of my favorite books, but this narrator either makes me give up in disgust or just fall asleep every time I try to listen to him talk. I can’t overstate how stunned I am that this guy got the job. What the hell happened there? A horror novel shouldn’t ever feel like a bedtime story told by an exhausted parent with half his mind on what he’d rather be doing instead. No inflection, no effort to create voices, no way to distinguish one character from another even though the three main characters are a tormented man with a nasty temper, a sweet woman struggling to hold her family together, and a brilliant little boy caught in the frozen hell between the two. Good grief! Worst narration I’ve ever heard, and the tragedy is that this book merits the best of the best.

    Terrible Narrator

    Such a good book. I’ve never saw the movie, so I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into. Everything about the book itself was amazing, the narrator was the problem. Some of the other reviews said that they liked his neutral monotone, but it took so much away from the story. It was hard for me to finish. If you want my advice, just read the book instead.

    Classic

    As someone who has only seen the movie i see why S.King did not like it. The Book is way better and digs itself deeper into the Madness of said hotel and all ist Influencers.. What a fantastic road to Madness this was.. Take your medicine!

    Good Story, Except the Hocus Pocus at the End

    Stephen King is s great storyteller. However I am a scientist and I therefore prefer the ambiguous when it comes to supernatural stories. Towards the end of the book King goes full bore hocus pocus when the hotel feeds Jack real alcohol, he is really freed from his prison by ghosts and all those ghostly creatures really come into existence. Such a story constructed within the real world loses its credibiity for me. A better way I think is to construct the supernatural within a space of ambiguity so the reader does not have to rationalize the magic in his/her mind. But I gues less rationally inclined readers may like the story the way it is.

    Narrator was a professional voice actor who did a superb job!

    Sehr gut gelesen

    Ich fand die Stimme des Lesers super angenehm und sehr spannend, zur Geschichte muss man glaube ich nicht viel sagen, habe das Audiobuch gehört und gleichzeitig im Buch mitgelesen, das gibt nochmal ein ganz anderes Bild der Geschichte. Wirklich alles nur zu empfehlen.

    Delightful but not essential


    The shining, like most of King’s early work is crafted wonderfully. The prose is brilliantly eerie and characters interesting, but I don’t believe it to be as much of a must-read as it’s made out to be. At its core it’s a haunted house story with very few characters. It comes off as the product of a “how much material can you wring out of a premise”-challenge rather than a story fitting its length.

    The element of precognition and the supernatural are well used but muddy the lines between cabin fever and an intervention by forces from beyond the veil in a very unclean way. We somehow have to think of the hotel as both a sentient entity as well as a place for the impact of bad memories to manifest as ghosts… I think it’s a bit of a mess that doesn’t work as well as it should.

    It deserves a read for anyone who has fallen in love with King but it’s not the none-plus ultra haunted house story it’s claimed to be and not even the best execution of its own concept.

    Excellent

    Zur Geschichte an sich muss ja eigentlich nichts mehr gesagt werden. "The Shining" zählt nicht umsonst zu Kings besten Geschichten.
    Die Umsetzung als Hörbuch ist hervorragend gelungen. Der Sprecher schafft es, eine Spannung aufzubauen, während er den unterschiedlichen Erzählern eine individuelle Stimme gibt.
    Sehr empfehlenswert!

    Great story and vividly narrated

    First suspense/horror novel I've listened to and it was an incredible experience. Wonderfully written tragedy on being haunted by the ghosts of our ancestors. The narrator sounded well trained and not overacted, but very vivid and believable at the same time. I can highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good story with some supernatural elements!
