The Shining

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Stephen King

Narrated By: Campbell Scott

Date: August 2012

Duration: 15 hours 50 minutes


Before Doctor Sleep, there was The Shining, a classic of modern American horror from the undisputed master, Stephen King.

Jack Torrance’s new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel, he’ll have plenty of time to spend reconnecting with his family and working on his writing. But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote . . . and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.

    My absolute favorite book ever! This was my first time hearing/reading the novel... And it's sooooo much better than the movie, and that USED to be my favorite movie! But now, I don't think i can ever watch the movie again without being utterly disappointed. They could have done so much more with the movie. What a let down! I highly recommend this book! It's amazing!

    I love Campbell Scott as the narrator for this creepy yet wonderful tale. He is exactly what I look for in a narrator. I'm just getting into King's work and this novel was amazing. it kept me going on my long commute every day.

    Only 6 hours into the book and am amazed at all the info missing from the movie. The book is amazing. I can't to get to the end! I'm not a fan of the narrator's voices but his annunciation is great. Some times the way he starts sentences is JOLTING. Especially when he goes from Wendy's soft voice to pretty much anything else. But I still like be listening to.

    This book is fantastic. I first saw the movie in the miniseries before deciding to read the book. As the saying goes the book is way better than movies. The narrator did a pretty good job doing the different voices. I didn't like him at the beginning but I got used to him.

    One of the better S.K books, nice flow, not bloated, he doesn’t get distracted as he did in the book IT. Nice read

    Love the story, Love Stephen King. The narrator is a terrific actor, but such a soft reader that I had to crank up the volume on whatever listening device I was using, and no matter what kind of device, I had the damn thing all the way up. But overall, it’s amazing!

    the book itself is amazing, undeniably a King masterpiece. My biggest complaint was the narration, which did ocasionally provide very good and interesting voices but was mostly dry and uninteresting to listen to. It took me a great deal of time to finish this book because the Narrator was simply so boring to listen to through most of the novel...
