Day 19 – Favorite book turned into a movie

The obvious choice is the Harry Potter series, but I think I'm going to say The Shining by Stephen King. I love the movie with Jack Nicholson, even though it's not completely accurate to the book.

The Shining by Stephen King
First published in 1977, The Shining quickly became a benchmark in the literary career of Stephen King. This tale of a troubled man hired to care for a remote mountain resort over the winter, his loyal wife, and their uniquely gifted son slowly but steadily unfolds as secrets from the Overlook Hotel's past are revealed, and the hotel itself attempts to claim the very souls of the Torrance family.
The Shining stands as a cultural icon of modern horror, a searing study of a family torn apart, and a nightmarish glimpse into the dark recesses of human weakness and dementia.(
