The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Shining - Stephen King - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of The Shining:

Mom?  Dad is crazy and I think the hotel is haunted.

My favorite Stephen King quote from the book:

"Monsters are real. Ghosts are too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win."

Questions to ponder while reading The Shining:

How much does it take to traumatize a child for life?

How much baggage do you collect before filing for divorce?

My thoughts about The Shining:

Scary, creepy, fun.

Make sure you finish Daniel's Saga.

Stop by The Stanley during a Rocky Mountain Park Road Trip.
