This book is excellent! Having seen the movie, I thought I knew what to expect but I was wrong. The character development and relationship interaction was amazing. On top of that, the atmosphere and how the hotel became a character really made the book perfect.

This book is too long. There are way too many detailed shared that drag on chapters and do not add to the plot. 
I wanted to like this book but it just dragged on for me. The plot was so good, but got overshadowed by useless information. 
Wendy (the only woman in this book) is totally flat. And no matter how horrible Jack is, she forgives him instantly. 
What the hell was that scene where Danny is traumatized and Jack starts sucking on Wendy’s nipple while she tries to figure a way out of the hotel?? What was that?! So weird.
