“Haunted” is not powerful. It is not poignant. It is not smart. It is simply a waste, and I regret reading it wholeheartedly.
Review: The Shining by Stephen King
It’s frightening, it’s complex, and it’s a wild ride. True, the author can get bogged down in tedious descriptions and exposition, and lose the power of his subtlety with the inevitable climax of extravagance that tends to make an appearance near the end, but the plot is no less compelling because of either tendency.
