Good Read for summer

This is a long and detailed tail in the King tradition. You must be a dedicated reader in order to start this one. But it's worth it.

Possibly the greatest novel?

by DrBones on Apr 6, 2007

Well in my humble opinion it is the greatest piece of fiction I have read. The depth that you get to go into the lives and mins of each one of these characters is staggering. What a more over-played out theme (the struggle of good verses evil) to take onand truely do something original with. I can't say enough about the style this book was written in. The attention to detail the history of each player laid out so that the reader can form whole opinions based the merit or character flaws of every piece on the chess board. no stone left unturned so that when the books apocalyptic theme starts to develope you are actually in a position to feel like you can pass judgement on who should triumph or fal. It is often hard for me to find characters in mass market novels that really scare me, and make my skin crawl. The killer who takes on the identity of Vincent Mungo in the Shane Stevens novel "By Reason of Insanity", or the pretyy rich boy nut job in Bret Easton Elliss' "American psycho" both hit the mark. But evil pound for evil pound, the "waking dude" in "The Stand" scared the crud out of me. With an understated grace almost he draws people in to a living nightmare that surrounds him and dictates his every move and thought. And on the good side of the Rocky Mountains,lovable heroes by the truck load. a team of misfits that despite being as mixed up and challenged as the scumbags out to get them, mange to succeed in winning the readers hearts and leave them cheering. Just great entertainment for hours and hours. I've reread it 6 times since my first go around the lonely highways of Stephen Kings imagination.

One of my top 5 favorite books!

by MALibrarian on Apr 3, 2007

"The Stand" is by far my favorite of King's books! I was taken by surprise the first time I read it...I was expecting the usual horror that I had read previously (and enjoyed), like "The Shining," "'Salem's Lot," and "Carrie." But this was completely different! This is one of the best good vs. evil books ever written...the characters come to life as they proceed through the pages of the book; the events unfold and keep you reading (even when you are too tired to continue!); and I knew upon finishing it that I had to read it again. And I did...then I read the "extended version," and fell in love with this book all over again! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a "page-turner" and who likes characters with depth and humanity! Way to go, Stephen King!
