(this book counts as 2)

imagine a book by the greatest author (according to Anthony Padulo) this book is so scary and so amazing! i was glued to this book from start to finish.

this book was about a family who is too watch over a hotel when its closed for the winter. after a while the father went crazy. and he tried to kill the family. the boy (which is his son) got help from the custodian to save him. the scariest part of this book is when the little boy had these images of blood rushing threw the evelvators and the staircase. he always had these images of the family that was killed in the hotel room in the past and that's what hunted him. another interesting part of the story is when the father was chasing the boy threw the maze of the garden, the little boy is so smart how he was able to retrace his steps and escape the father. Steven king did an amazing job with this thriller.

i recommend this book to anyone who wants a good thriller. if anyone wants an uptight book and you cant put it down then pick that book. its a good book for a plane ride or a vacation.
