Kierra It really depends on what kinds of things you are okay with reading. I read it when I was ten, and I was okay, but there is a lot of swearing and some intense parts. Yes, it is better than the movie in my opinion. The only questionable things are the swearing and intensity (as there is in most Stephen King novels) and some drinking. Overall, The Shining was an amazing book!
