5 5 starsM O O N That spells I am done with this MOONstrosity of a tome.
This is the biggest single book I ve ever read in my life so far It s 470k words and it s even bigger than Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson and although it doesn t go into my personal favorite list, I enjoyed the majority of the book.
The Stand is totally not what I expected I really thought this would be a super thrilling plot driven with a lot of actions book due to the nature that the story revolves around a plague outbreak As it turns out, The Stand is a HIGHLY characters driven book with the plot moving at a very slow pace, and as great as it was, sometimes it did get a bit excruciating.
One of the two that stands out the most from this book other than the gigantic size in my opinion was the theological nature and the classic tale of a battle between good versus evilThat wa 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 elements were included This part was still solid I liked how we got to follow the characters and get to know them I felt some similarities to Station Eleven so if you like The Stand I would give this one a shot too This Is The Way The World Ends With A Nanosecond Of Computer Error In A Defense Department Laboratory And A Million Casual Contacts That Form The Links In A Chain Letter Of Death And Here Is The Bleak New World Of The Day After A World Stripped Of Its Institutions And Emptied Of Percent Of Its People A World In Which A Handful Of Panicky Survivors Choose Sides Or Are Chosen 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 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.
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% of his books is generally so good that I can forgive the ending.
One of the things I like best about King s writing is the way he breathes life into characters and every day settings For a horror writer this is crucial You have to make everything utterly believable so that when the monster comes and the stakes are raised the reader feels it s all real and cares about what s at stake The short story, The Body, on which the film Stand By Me is based is a g 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 I would like it because I barely remember the movie and am not sure I liked it That was a long time ago and who the hell knows I m just extremely happy I finally read it Yeah It s long, but most books I read or listen to are so that s neither here nor there I just loved reading about all of the people and events And I did laugh at times YES, scary stories do have some comedy at times Lol Anyhoo, enjoy peeps Happy Reading Mel 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 breaks, meals and sleep.
30 years later my reading experience was a little different I read it with my Goodreads friend Lisa who had the uncut version, while I had the original I stopped and started as she caught up there were huge amounts of messages back and forth on the characters, the differences in editions, who we loved who we hated, and everything and anything we could think of to discuss It was a month long readbut the one thing both experiences did have in common was I LOVED IT each time At 1440 144099%1440 144031440 1440 14401978144016 4 480 99% 1% 1% 5 6 6601%7 10 300 1100 Yesssss300 3001% 1440 1440 The Shining 1440 1 2017 31 2017
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 handed development of the kind of chills and thrills a person really likes Shock someone enough times with snot running out of their nose, and it just becomes a little meaningless And there are only so many ways to view a dead body before one gets kind of numb instead of apprehensive Using the journal device to move things forward seems a little crude, when what we really need to do is talk I have to confess, I ve felt kind of uncomfortable watching you struggle with religion and spirituality You sparked my interest when you posited that this might be the 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 Stand is an epic, genre defining work.
My friend Michael has a profile statement, something to the effect of finding our next 5 star rating I like that sentiment, and am excited by the opportunity that our next favorite book is out there waiting to be read a new best friend of an author to whom we ve yet to be introduced Here s mine I m late to the party, just reading this for the first time in 2015 I think I was always a little intimidated by the length It s a beast, and I was a glutton for punishment reading the 1990 extended version, weighing in at a heavyweight 1153 pages But it s a
