Kyraryker’s quotes


"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Room 217

The Shining - Stephen King

I think I had more sympathy for Jack this time around, first read this in my teens. Still delivered on the creepy factor with the Room 217 scene and the hedge animals.

 

Still too bottom heavy with action for me (I get build-up but still didn't work for me), Wendy needed more umph to her character in the first half, and Danny felt more 13yrs old than 6.
