Shining - Stephen King,  Ruxandra Toma Although I can state that I am a fan on Stephen King, this is my first and only book written by him that I've read. Yet, I've watched almost every movie based on his books, of which I'm sure that just a few meet the quality of the novel. I have a lot to catch up with Stephen King.
I've read most of this book outdoors, in a park, and I was so fascinated by the plot that I stood hours on end on the same bench, unaware of the people coming and going, oblivious of the passing of time and physical necessities (such as hunger). This book is tough, sad, sometimes violent and has a certain power that absorbs the reader into its fantastic universe.

Desi pot spune ca sunt o fana a lui Stephen King, aceasta este prima si singura carte scrisa de el pe care am citit-o. Sa-mi fie rusine. In rest, am urmarit ecranizarile facute de-a lungul timpului, dintre care putine se ridica la nivelul cartilor, sunt sigura. Un motiv in plus de a alege cartea, inainte de a vedea filmul. Am mult de recuperat in ceea ce-l priveste pe Stephen King.
Cartea asta am citit-o in mare parte in parcul Kisellef, si am fost atat de captivata de ea, incat am ramas ore in sir pe aceeasi banca, aproape surda la lumea din jur, constatand vag trecerea orelor si prezenta unor necesitati fiziologice (precum foamea). Este o carte dura, trista, violenta pe alocuri, dar care te absoarbe in universul ei fara putinta de scapare. Iar la final nu esti, in nici un caz, mai vesel. Experienta merita, insa, traita.
