Wonderful book. I enjoyed every minute of this novel. I only wish Robert McCammon had more unabridged works here at Audible. I hated it ended because I had grown attached to each character that was fleshed out to feel like someone you came to know and love. If anyone is looking for a post apocalyptic story of the struggle of humanity and the battle of good and evil, look no further. If you enjoyed "The Stand", then you'll love this future classic.

Its one thing to talk about what would happen, its another to go into detail of the sounds, textures, and smells as people crush each others skulls for the last scraps of food. Yick. I could stand it for once or twice, but every 10 minutes or so it got too gorey for me. I also didn't care the fantacy side of things. The shapeshifting satan character, and the dream glass ball, were too dumb for me to enjoy.
Here I am a grown man, father of 4 and I felt like I needed to take a shower after listening. I only got through 10 hours then called it quits. Don't know how it ends, don't care. Yick, yick, and icky.
I will say this. The actor that read this book should get an award! So many voices, and with such natureal tallent. WELL DONE.
post-apocalyptic saga in the tradition of The Stand that clicks along just fine. Well narrated.
Truly deserves its place on the must read lists. The length wasn't as scary as the cover art for the paperback. Horror, evil, brutality and hope. Glad I listened and read. The intense parts I listened to 1.5 - 2 times faster or read the book.
Robert R Mcammon destroys the world and it ain't pretty but it it is sure as hell fascinating. WWIII wipes out everything and these are the tales of certain survivors. More than that I won't say however narration by Tom Stechschulte is award worthy. Amazing work by an amazing talent. This one is a winner I all aspects.
This was beautifully narrated. Tour de force! I was spellbound. Beautiful consistent vocal characterizations. I will listen to anything Tom narrates. Truly incredible
I read this book when it was first published and loved it. The narrator brought the characters to life in the Audible book and made it enjoyable to listen too. I am surprised this book was never made into a movie like The Stand.
