    Even in the first one, there was so much time in the movie where they were just a normal family. They had some problems with jacks drinking, plus in the first one an absolutely horrendous taste in clothes. But there was lots of time to get to know them before the ghosts in the overlook came out. And even when they started appearing it was slow and built up speed, like his books do it.

    btw.
    To the powers that be. A thread about an author should have his name spelled correctly in the title. It is Stephen King. Can this be corrected?

    I liked the book...and the mini-series, too.

    Not as good as the Darktower stuff though. Can't wait to read the next one!

    Hey, I just started Wolves of the Calla last night! Am thinking about starting a new thread to discuss it but am afraid if I do so before I finish it someone will spoil it for me... very good so far, though.

    If you can't wait for Santa, try the library. Mine had a surprisingly short wait list. I expect I'll finish it this weekend. Seriously, so far it's quite good, and I was up till 1 a.m. reading till I couldn't keep my eyes open. I'm so glad he's finally finished this series (and also can't wait for the next two! )

    Library is a great idea! I really am anxious to read it.

    Thanks!
