L'errore di un computer, l'incoscienza di pochi uomini e si scatena la fine del mondo. Il morbo sfuggito a un segretissimo laboratorio semina morte e terrore. Il novantanove per cento della popolazione della terra non sopravvive all'apocalittica epidemia e per i pochi scampati c'è una guerra ancora tutta da combattere, una lotta eterna e fatale tra chi ha deciso di seguire il Bene e appoggiarsi alle fragili spalle di Mother Abagail, la veggente ultracentenaria, e chi invece ha scelto di calcare le orme di Randall, il Senza Volto, il Male, il Signore delle Tenebre.

As soon as Chinese New Year got cancelled, I knew coronavirus was serious. Then the virus spread just like viruses do in every horror novel. So much so, in fact, that my immediate first thought was not to stock up on bottled water and toilet paper, but that it's finally time to read The Stand. Na
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 NyQuil while Stephen King describes the grisly deaths of almost every one on Earth from a superflu. On top Leggi tutto
Dear Stephen, I'm sorry. I just don't like you in that way. I know we've been friends for a long time, but I just never developed those kind of feelings for you, even after eleven hundred pages. I feel like we only moved forward in fits and stops, and we were just never able to sustain a kind of even Leggi tutto
M-O-O-N. That spells “Damn, what a great book!” I knew King had it in him, I am a fan of his brilliant 1977 haunted house thriller The Shining , but I did not expect this. The best post apocalyptic novel ever? Maybe, that is a broad category teaming with great work from talented writers, but King’s The Leggi tutto
I loved this book. I read the uncut version years back when I lived in the States, maybe in 2002. I loved everything about it except the ending. I'm a big fan of Stephen King and have 23 of his books on my shelf. Stephen King can only write a good ending to a book by chance. That said, the first 95% Leggi tutto
Oh wow, it hasn't even been a year since I finished this and I'm rereading again? ******************* 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 conquered. I also really enjoyed it along the way, which says a lot due to my struggle with Leggi tutto
Want to catch the flu? Read The Stand. I caught it twice in the month it took me to read this book. Twice! I'm rarely sick so it's clearly a thing. Post-apocalyptic book where most people die from a super flu. That part was my favorite. It then becomes a battle between Good and Evil. Some fantasy eleme Leggi tutto
Wow!! So I have had this awesome paperback door stopper for some time. (Gift from friend) I decided to get the audio through the library and of course now I have added it to my Audible wishlist. The narration is freaking awesome! The whole damn book is freaking awesome! The thing is, I didn't think
M-O-O-N spells spectacular! I first read THE STAND in the early 80's. It was during the Christmas break- I lived out in the boonies with my family, and after the holiday hoopla was over -I planted myself in my favorite chair and sat there for 4 days devouring every page-(only leaving for bathroom bre Leggi tutto
“None of us want to see portents and omens, no matter how much we like our ghost stories and the spooky films. None of us want to really see a Star in the East or a pillar of fire by night. We want peace and rationality and routine. If we have to see God in the black face of an old woman, it’s bound Leggi tutto
