I’m currently re-reading The Shining by Stephen King. I first read this during one of my college breaks way back when and didn’t care for it. In fact, I found it to be laughably boring.
Now, 15ish years later, I’m reading it again to see if I’m feeling any different than I did the first time I read it.
I’m sad to say that I don’t feel any different than I did before and I’m halfway through the book.
It’s not that he’s a bad writer, per se; it’s more that sometimes he gets so enamored with his words and writing style that he forgets when to stop describing things and just get to the point already. And that’s pretty much all I have to say about that.
Do you have a favorite Stephen King novel? What is it?
