    The Shining

    £9.99
    Jenni Fagan says:

    The year I was born in a Victorian psychiatric hospital, The Shining was published. This classic American horror is about a building that has a dark power. The hotel houses its ghosts and its living with equal terror and truth. It is a novel that has long called to me. From the ability to ‘shine,’ which I understood as a child, to the extraordinary imagery, it is an iconic novel that became a vital part of popular culture. I also feel the literary themes and questions on human evolution, the mind, consciousness, sanity and autonomy often get a little lost by those who dismiss it is as ‘genre,’ fiction!

    Welcome to the Overlook Hotel. You'll never want to leave . . .

    Danny is only five years old, but in the words of old Mr Hallorann he is a 'shiner', aglow with psychic voltage. When his father becomes caretaker of the Overlook Hotel, Danny's visions grow out of control.

    As winter closes in and blizzards cut them off, the hotel seems to develop a life of its own. It is meant to be empty. So who is the lady in Room 217 and who are the masked guests going up and down in the elevator? And why do the hedges shaped like animals seem so alive?

    Somewhere, somehow, there is an evil force in the hotel - and that, too, is beginning to shine . . .
