      • was King’s first bestseller, they made a movie based on the book starring Jack Nicholson. It is not my favorite novel by Stephen King, I had a hard time getting into the whole shining aspect, and the hotel being possessed I think would have been better if the hotel was normal, and Jack just went insane
