The Stand is Stephen King at it best! Nothing more, nothing less! Grover Gardner tells Stephen King like no one else could do! I just love his voice! Yes the book is LONG! 47 hrs and 52 mins! Almost 48 hours of PURE Stephen King! I love it, and there is noting NEW i can tell you that other people have not told you before. Stephen King is no pun "The King of loong storytelling!"
47 hrs and 52 mins with Grover Gardner and Stephen King: What more could you wish for?
King's storytelling is absolutely brilliant. The Stand is one of the best apocalyptic novels I've read. However, the narrator Grover Gardner steals the show. He is so articulate and appropriate that I wish these 40 something hours lasted much longer. Job so well done, and thank you! I will be looking up more books by this narrator.
The narration was fantastic. Given that there were a whole host of characters, the transition between each character was flawless and easy followed. Great delivery and immersed me in the story.
The Stand has some serious lulls which detract from the momentum that King established early on. I enjoy King's work, but this was one that felt more like a chore to get through at times.
The plot and character development in the book is the best I've ever encountered. Truly an amazing work by one of the best authors this world has had the fortune to read. Bravo, Mr. King. Bravo.
A wonderful story read masterfully. I can't imagine a shorter version, I'm so glad he published the full version.
