Synopsis

Stephen King’s apocalyptic vision of a world blasted by plague and tangled in an elemental struggle between good and evil remains as riveting and eerily plausible as when it was first published.
 
A patient escapes from a biological testing facility, unknowingly carrying a deadly weapon: a mutated strain of super-flu that will wipe out 99 percent of the world’s population within a few weeks. Those who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge—Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a peaceful community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious “Dark Man,” who delights in chaos and violence. As the dark man and the peaceful woman gather power, the survivors will have to choose between them—and ultimately decide the fate of all humanity.

(This edition includes all of the new and restored material first published in The StandThe Complete And Uncut Edition.)

I have read this book at least a dozen times. The characters are alive and every time I read it I discover something new. I recommend this book to anyone that's like a good story

This is by far my favorite SK book! I never get tired of reading it. The description, the characters, everything about this story makes it a wonderful break from reality. I am, and forever will be, a Constant Reader.

King always manages to write amazing works. I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of King or the genre, or even someone who is a fan of neither, it's that good.

Read this a little at a time... Didn't feel like it was a long book(it is btw). You get so involved with the characters you feel like a part of the story. Excellent read!

My Favorite Stephen King Novel
July 10th, 2013
I have read The Stand 6 or 7 times and will absolutely read it many times more before the end of my life. This is one of my favourite S.K. books and, as always, King leaves you thinking about things in the dark. The super frightening thing about The Stand is it potentially could happen to us. We are LONG overdue for a worldwide pandemic. A great book!
