Description

'THE STAND is a masterpiece' (Guardian). Set in a plague-decimated US, King's thrilling American fantasy epic, is a Classic.

First come the days of the plague. Then come the dreams.

Dark dreams that warn of the coming of the dark man. The apostate of death, his worn-down boot heels tramping the night roads. The warlord of the charnel house and Prince of Evil.

His time is at hand. His empire grows in the west and the Apocalypse looms.

When a man crashes his car into a petrol station, he brings with him the foul corpses of his wife and daughter. He dies and it doesn't take long for the plague which killed him to spread across America and the world.

From Publishers Weekly

06 May 1991 – Survivors of a chemical weapon called superflu confront pure evil in this updated and even more massive version of King's 1978 saga. ``The extra 400 or so pages . . . make King's best novel better still,'' said PW. `` A new beginning adds verisimilitude to an already frighteningly believable story, while a new ending opens up possibilities for a sequel . ''

Customer Reviews

Masterpiece

I first read the stand in my teens and at 41 just finished it again for the 8th time and still it captures you and can't be put down until the end.

You can really imagine how something like the "captain tripps flu" would hit and put yourself into the situations the characters find themselves in.

5 stars classic novel that is a must read over and over again.

The Stand by Stephen King

Very surprised the whole unabridged version is available. Does seem to take longer to read.

Fantastic

Stephen King has a way of making the unbelievable, anything but.
Captivating till the last line, the plot and interwoven stories truly masterful.
