I read this 464 page book in FOUR DAYS! This is a VERY fast paced, easy to read, in your face thriller. The Shining is a cordial invitation into King's superbly terrifying imagination. The plot: intriguing, the characters: stellar, the imagery: wasps, blood, the hotel, everything was perfect. Have You ever felt yourself shine? Don't read this one at night, unless you LIKE feeling "zero at the bone".
My only critcisms would be that the begining is somewhat slow, and WHAT was with the last chapter? It was out of the blue and wholly unnecessary. Cut that chapter out and the ending is perfect.
The Cider House Rules (Roman) von John Irving
You've probably heard that this book is about abortion. In truth, its a book about a "father" and "son"'s struggle to accept one another, as well as a young man's struggle to overcome his own moral hypocrisy. The characters take a walk outside the perimeters of moral limitations, and find themselves questioning whether or not they can live with the choices they've made.
Irving's trademark solid gold characterization leaves nothing to be desired, but the plot moves slowly through the middle. If you like Irving, and don't mind repeated references to a woman's right to choose, you'll enjoy this one.

Anybody know what my title's about? Basically, this: In the battle between your impulsive, selfish side and your rational, moral side which would ultimately win?
The plot of this novel is misleadingly simple. Some shipwrecked British lads must fend for themselves on an island while waiting to be rescued. Their only hope for returning to civilization is to keep a fire burning in the hope that a ship will see the smoke. A leader is chosen. The society is well organized and, intitially, works. Then the "littlun's" confess their superstitious fear of a mysterious "beast" lurking in the woods. Disputes concerning priorities and leadership divide the boys… Mehr dazu
