Re-read this book for the first time as an adult, and was able to appreciate the pacing and the psychological horror of it. Extremely well done. Can't wait to read Dr. Sleep.

i learned not to take a job as a caretaker for an old abandoned hotel in the middle of winter with my family. Bad things are most likely going to happen. The book is different than the movie version- I found myself feeling very bleak and depressed when reading the book. So maybe keep some Prozac on hand?
