Teaser Tuesday: The Shining (again)

Teaser Tuesday post for 24 January 2017
from The Shining by Stephen King

Jack came out onto the porch, tugging the tab of his zipper up under his chin, blinking into the bright air.  In his left hand he was holding a battery-powered hedge-clipper.

    I’ve seen parts of the movie, but never read the book. If you didn’t know the meaning, or the type of books Stephen King writes, Jack’s actions could be interpreted as rather normal. *Bwahahaha*

    Here’s my Teaser Tuesday post.

      Same here about the movie. Only parts of it…as a kid. First time reading. Almost half way through and not much creepy yet. Can’t imagine the movie takes this long to get to the scares.

    Good teaser — won’t read it though. Saw the movie and it scared me half to death. Here’s my teaser (rather gruesome in itself): http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1t1

      Now that I’ve finished the book, I’d have to go back and watch the movie. I don’t recall too much about it, but based on the parts I do recall, a LOT is different.

    I’m thinking it’s time to revisit this one. Been so long I’ve forgot a lot.

      I think it’s one of my favorites. Of course, with King’s stuff, that would be like picking which of my own kids was my favorite. 😉
