    About as perfect a haunted house story as can be, King was at his best here It s as though he built a haunted house and then filled every nook and cranny with detail King is also at his best in regard to characterization, all well rounded and complete, we know family relationships, group dynamics, all the old hidden buried fears King touches base with psychological elements, theological, metaphysical, spiritual, and cryptic aspects of a ghost stor...
