Having seen the movie first, I thought I knew what I was getting into, but I was very wrong. The character development and plot had much more depth than what was delivered in Kubrick's film.

The alarming onset of cabin fever and the progression of insanity in Jack is not dulled in prose, it is enhanced. Knowing the extent of his agony as he repeatedly tries and fails to prove his worth to his family, employers and himself only makes his eventual snap that much more dreadful.
