Even if you haven't seen the movie, there are things about The Shining that you already know about from pop culture references. This makes it hard to read The Shining without comparison, but I found that I still enjoyed this read. Because there is so much internal dialogue from the characters, they also provide their own analysis of themselves and each other, which allows any reader to take off their analytical glasses for a moment and just enjoy the story.
