    This is a fantastic piece! I did not know about Kubrick's take on the spiritual afterlife and hearing King's thoughts on it, I agree that that may have derailed the entire movie. Jack is never sympathetic character in the book, has no arc, and is even denied the redemption at the end of the film that makes the ending of the book so good. Using the lens King has would have made for a much better movie, if done right. I still enjoy many aspects of the movie, but less so the more I notice the things that are off, in general, largely from that lack of thought throughout about the ghosts and the creation through that lens. I loved reading about King's explanation of the Wendy finding JAck's MS scene and how Kubrick missed the payoff...big time! This was very well researched and done! Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you! Very happy you enjoyed it. I love Kubrick's film, but I absolutely understand King's point of view. I don't think he wrote a good script for his TV adaptation, though. A good King's version of The Shining is yet to be done, I think. Not that I would necessarily wish to see it... but you get my point. Again, thanks for your appreciation of my research and writing.
