I was 13-years-old when I read The Shining. After years of enjoying comic books and short stories, it was the first novel I ever read. To say its impact on me was profound is a gross understatement. Coming from a past with verbal, emotional, physical, and religious abuse, it was the first time I realized my deplorable situation was not unique – there were people in the world, writers, who empathized with my situation. People who understood that … sometimes parents go crazy and try to kill their kids.
Speaking of The Shining, this is pretty good.
