Teaser Tuesday (36): The Shining by Stephen King


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week’s Teaser comes from the following book:

Title: The Shining
Author: Stephen King
Original Publisher: Doubleday
Originally Published:  1977
Reprinted: 2008, sold by Random House

Purchase: Amazon  only $1.99 for Kindle

From Amazon:

With an excerpt from the sequel, Doctor Sleep.

Terrible events occur at an isolated hotel in the off season, when a small boy with psychic powers struggles to hold his own against the forces of evil that are driving his father insane.


I'm kicking it old school this week!  I'm lining up Doctor Sleep for a read soon, and I want to refresh my brain on The Shining because it's been ages since I read it.  Amazon has the ebook for only $1.99!!  I don't think I ever actually owned a print copy of this one -- I probably borrowed it from a friend or checked it out at the library.  The only problem -- aside from choosing a two-sentence quote -- is that with an ebook, you can't pull a Joey and put it in the freezer when it gets too scary!!

My teaser:

“She had never dreamed there could be so much pain in a life 
when there was nothing physically wrong. 
She hurt all the time.” 
- Kindle Loc 941 / Pg 48

I’d love to know what your Teaser is!
