I'm reading it now, no pun intended.
I just felt like Jack in the movie was a harsh person from the outset and only got worse. Not the man who detests his vice and the problems it's caused getting slowly seduced by the overlook, and even fighting back. Movie Jack dove in head first.
As for it, I'm really looking forward to seeing how this version translates. It's been forever since I have seen the original. Might need to find that.
