OK. This book is harsh and raw and therefor somewhat refreshing. I actually went to pick up The Shining, but they didn't have it in stock and the guy behind the counter recommended this one. I don't know how he could recommend it without mentioning that you should have your therapist on speed dial while reading it, but what can you do.
Apparently there is three stories in it if I understand correctly, I've finished the first one and I'm taking a break reading some more, lovely, Paulo Coelho before continue on the second story.
It was a weird feeling be scared from a book the same way you get scared from a movie. I looked over my shoulder more than once when it was dark! Other than that the book is amazingly well written. It was my fist Stephen King book and I had certain expectations, but I didn't expect it to be that well written. I can definitely recommend it if you're in the mood for some real horror. It was also very psychological which is very much my style.
