Jenny asked:

I never have read any of Stephen King's books, so I don't know if I could stomach really bloody stuff. Is The Shining very gory?

Baba Yaga At some points, yes, I found it rather gory. This is by far not true all the time; Most of the time, the tension is created in a more subtle way, but there are passages that I thought to be very explicit.
