I'm not sure what I can say about this massive tome that hasn't been said before but I came I read and I conuered I also really enjoyed it along the way which says a lot due to my struggle with committing to massive books Does anyone know if there will be a new book to screen adaptation of this one in the near future or if the old mini series is worth the time? Anyway I'm satisfied and a tiny bit relieved to be finished 3 Thanks to everyone who pushed me to make 2019 the year I picked up The Stand and for all the people who cheered me on along the way

The StandThis is the way the world ends with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual con You know what’s really scary? Getting sick while you’re reading the first part of The Stand Just try running a fever going through a box of tissues and guzzling the better part of a bottle of Nyuil while Stephen King describes the grisly deaths of almost every one on Earth from a superflu On top of feeling like crap you'll be terrified BonusAfter a bio engineered virus that acts like a revved up cold escapes from a US government lab it takes only weeks for almost all of humanity to succumb to the disease A handful of survivors are mysteriously immune and begin having strange dreams some of which are about a very old woman called Mother Abigail asking them to come see her More disturbing are nightmares about a mysterious figure named Randall Flagg also known as the Dark Man or the Walkin’ DudeAs they make their way through an America almost entirely devoid of people the survivors begin to unite and realize that the flu was just the beginning of their problems While some are drawn to the saintly Mother Abigail in Boulder Colorado who tells them that they have been chosen by God others have flocked to Flagg in Las Vegas who is determined to annihilate all those who refuse to pledge their allegiance to himIf King would have just written a book about a world destroyed by plague and a small number of people struggling in the aftermath it probably would have been a compelling story What sets this one apart is the supernatural element Flagg is the embodiment of evil and chaos He's a mysterious figure who has been giving the wrong people the push needed for them to make things worse for everyone and he sees the plague as his chance to fulfill his own destiny as a wrecker of humanity And on the other side we have God Yep that God The Big Cheese himself But this isn’t some kindly figure in a white robe with a white beard or George Burns or Morgan Freeman This is the Old Testament God who demands obedience and worship while usually rewarding his most faithful servants with gruesome deaths King calls this a tale of dark Christianity in his forward and one of the things I love about this book is that it does feel like a Biblical story complete with contradictions and a moves in mysterious ways factor Stories don’t get much epic than this and King does a great job of depicting the meltdown of the world through the stories of a variety of relateable characters Larry Underwood remains among my favorite King creations One of my few complaints is that this features a lot of King’s anti technology themes that he’d use in several books like Cell or The Dark Tower series We’re told repeatedly that the ‘old ways’ like trying to get the power back on in Boulder are a ‘death trip’ The good guys gather in the Rocky Mountains but if they try to get the juice going so they won’t freeze to death in the winter they’re somehow acting in defiance of God’s will and returning to the bad habits? Not all tech is bad tech Mr King Nature is a bitch and will kill your ass uicker than the superfluHere’s another thing I’m not wild about When this was published in the late ‘70s the bean counters at King’s publishers had decided that the book as written would be too pricey in hardback and no one would pay a whopping 13 for a Stephen King hardback So King cut about three hundred pagesAround 1990 after it had become apparent that
