Review: The Stand

The Stand The Stand by Stephen King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow what a wonderful treat, I wanted to read it for so long and finally gathered my courage and picked this massive work and flew through it as it would probably be the first book of more than 1300 pages that I was able to finish within 10 days. Obviously with job and everything I couldn't be reading the book continuously and there listening to the book came in handy and between the two methods I just flew through the book. The backcover promised an EPIC story and EPIC it is.

If you have read any of my reviews before you already know that I don't go about writing about the story as you can read the beats of the story the blurb as soon as you click on the book name above. Mr. King I tip my head to you, I have so many books written by you and I haven't read many of them as I am chicken shit scared that your books would be too scary for my feeble heart and I would see the monsters on every corner. But thankfully like 'Under the Dome' this is also not a horror book but rather a human story of bunch of survivors after a man-made plague kills off almost everybody and remaining people get behind two forces and I loved reading and listening to this book. But Mr. King I am still afraid to read some of your horror work I bought them but let's see when would I be able to get to them. May I be I should tackle another giant book 'It' by Mr. King he is one of the fastest writers I have seen.

As I am writing about being scared of horror things random noises have started in the house and it's 3.42 AM in the night and I am the only one awake in the house as I just got back from the office an hour ago. Let's get back to the book and surprisingly this book also has few illustrations but unfortunately in this print they were just too dark and many were not visible properly thankfully they are fine in the ebook copy. This book was originally published in 1978 and this is the expanded version and I once again just loved it. I would now go ahead and try to read few more books and work towards my reading challenge.

So my recommendations you already know them leave your fears about this monster of a book behind and finally jump in to the post-apocalyptic world and then just Keep on Reading.
