Read full description of the books:
Jack Torrance é um escritor que está tentando reconstruir a vida de sua família e, principalmente, a sua, tentando se curar do alcoolismo que o fez quebrar o braço de seu filho Danny quando este tinha apenas três anos de idade, e agredir um aluno na escola New England, custando o seu emprego de professor.
Ele aceita o trabalho de zelador de inverno no isolado e imenso resort hotel Overlook, cujo passado é fantasmagórico. Esperando para provar a todos que ele se recuperou do alcoolismo, e agora tornou-se uma pessoa responsável, Jack se muda para o hotel com sua esposa, Wendy, e o jovem filho, Danny, que é telepata e sensível a forças sobrenaturais.
Logo após a família chegar no hotel, Danny e o chef do hotel, Dick Hallorann, tem uma breve conversa particular. Eles conversam sobre o talento especial de Danny e a natureza sinistra do hotel. Dick informa Danny que ele também tem essa habilidade, que, como a avó de Dick Halloran costumava dizer, chama-se "shining" ou "iluminação". Na conversa, Dick também avisa Danny para evitar o quarto 237 à todos os custos, e tenta tranquilizar Danny que as coisas que ele irá ver são como "figuras em um livro" e "Eu não acho que essas coisas (se referindo as coisas que Danny verá) possam machucar alguém". A conversa termina com Dick dizendo a Danny "Se tiver algum problema... dê uma chamada (telepática)".
O hotel carrega forças sobrenaturais malignas do passado. Danny, que tem premonições do perigo do hotel para a sua família, começa a ver fantasmas e visões assustadoras do passado do hotel, mas lembra que elas não são assustadoras agora, no presente. Ele não conta aos seus pais sobre as visões, pois ele sabe a importância do trabalho para o seu pai e o futuro de sua família... - Wikipédia

Read information about the authorStephen Edwin King was born the second son of Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. After his father left them when Stephen was two, he and his older brother, David, were raised by his mother. Parts of his childhood were spent in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where his father's family was at the time, and in Stratford, Connecticut. When Stephen was eleven, his mother brought her children back to Durham, Maine, for good. Her parents, Guy and Nellie Pillsbury, had become incapacitated with old age, and Ruth King was persuaded by her sisters to take over the physical care of them. Other family members provided a small house in Durham and financial support. After Stephen's grandparents passed away, Mrs. King found work in the kitchens of Pineland, a nearby residential facility for the mentally challenged.
Stephen attended the grammar school in Durham and Lisbon Falls High School, graduating in 1966. From his sophomore year at the University of Maine at Orono, he wrote a weekly column for the school newspaper, THE MAINE CAMPUS. He was also active in student politics, serving as a member of the Student Senate. He came to support the anti-war movement on the Orono campus, arriving at his stance from a conservative view that the war in Vietnam was unconstitutional. He graduated in 1970, with a B.A. in English and qualified to teach on the high school level. A draft board examination immediately post-graduation found him 4-F on grounds of high blood pressure, limited vision, flat feet, and punctured eardrums.
He met Tabitha Spruce in the stacks of the Fogler Library at the University, where they both worked as students; they married in January of 1971. As Stephen was unable to find placement as a teacher immediately, the Kings lived on his earnings as a laborer at an industrial laundry, and her student loan and savings, with an occasional boost from a short story sale to men's magazines.
Stephen made his first professional short story sale ("The Glass Floor") to Startling Mystery Stories in 1967. Throughout the early years of his marriage, he continued to sell stories to men's magazines. Many were gathered into the Night Shift collection or appeared in other anthologies.
In the fall of 1971, Stephen began teaching English at Hampden Academy, the public high school in Hampden, Maine. Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on novels.
