Yes. It was fun and entertaining with great characters and addictive plot.
He was perfect. His voice interpreted the story and characters yet never got in the way.
I've never thought of myself as a "Stephen King" fan, but this was tops! Really good.
It did drag for me in parts. Not my favorite King book. I really liked 11/23/64.
...This is THE place to start. A classic that remains totally engulfing for any aged reader old enough to drive. A case study in character assembly and depth; a master class in plot that feels simple and even whimsical at times, while remaining faithful to the complexities of Stephen King's clearly ceaseless imagination.
Honestly, the dog in here is a quiet tertiary character that has perhaps the most impactful presence after the book ends.
Personality attached to each character that is not overbearing, just sublime.
I'm in my early to mid-thirties and I live in the mid-west. I have two wonderful children and the perfect wife. My profile pic is of my APBT, named Jasper. I like epic sic-fi type books. Some of my favorites are The Story of Song and Ice series, The Way of Kings, Theft of Sword series, and
I didn't have a great love for Stephen King until I read this book. It had been years since I last picked up a book written by King. So I didn't know how my "matured" mind would take this type of book. Well, I ended up loving it. I couldn't put it down. It had it's slow parts, but as a whole, you were constintly kept on your toes. Two thumbs up and 5-stars from me!
Grover Gardner adds so much in his narrative. I have read this book numerous times, but the audible version makes it much more spectacular. The hours flew by while I was listening. The Stand has always been my favorite book and I prove it by reading it once a year. Now I wll be linstening to it once a year! Well done.
Much has been said about The Stand. You're either going to like, love it or think it is overrated. I really doubt that you're going to hate it. If you think this tale is too long, I don't think you will continue past 300th.
I'm fairly new to audiobooks, far from an aficionado but I think it is safe to say that Gardner is true talent. I enjoyed all of his interpretation of King's characters and I think his pacing is perfect.
Uhmm . . . that's it.
The Stand is one of those books that draws you in and keeps you captivated the entire book.
Stu Redmond is simple yet strong, not quite an expert or know it all but someone I would like to have a beer with.
You can tell he loves the story in the way that it is read
Yes but i made myself take brakes to fully enjoy the tale better
I liked both versions , a different perspective. The book is so deep that you always learn something new every time you read it or listen to it.
The story line spoke to every person , You can imagine what it would be like if it happened to you. The characters in the story just come to life for me.
Understood every word and gave life to the story as he read it. I felt like I was living the story.
Is this how it all ends or begins
I think this book is Kings best novel , but I also think it is one of the best books I have every read. I have been reading or listening to this book since it was first released and I still love it ! I felt like I was living every moment myself. All the characters in the book came to life with their good and evil sides in battle with theirself to do the right thing. King makes you feel like this could happen. This book touched all my emotions. Loved it and I cant say that enough. A masterpiece.
Grover does a great job..top notch.
I read this over 20 years ago..and wish I had left it at that. It was kinda like going back to your old school and everything looks smaller than you remember. It was one of my early books and always one of my favorites. Maybe its' because the story has been redone..or
more likely I've read so much stuff since then that I have more to compare it to. I think King
is much better now as well..11/22/63 was one of the absolute best I've listened to..ever. King has stated this isn't one of his favorites and when he said that I was stunned..now I can understand why. Still..a great listen.
