    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    What made the experience of listening to The Stand the most enjoyable?

    This is my favorite King Novel. When you love a story, it makes it easier to enjoy the audiobook. I have read The Stand several times, I have the mini-series on DVD, and I have listened to it twice.


    What other book might you compare The Stand to and why?

    Although there are a number of apocalypse novels, I'd recommend Alas Babylon, The Earth Abides, and the S.M.Stirling series. Although my recommendations don't have a supernatural feel to them, The Stand is a good blend of supernatural and survival.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Several jump out at me.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long, but I wanted to.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: You may have thought the movie was scary, but this is pure Stephen King as it was meant to be experience – performed frighteningly well by Campbell Scott. First published in 1977, The Shining quickly became a benchmark in the literary career of Stephen King. This tale of a troubled man hired to care for a remote mountain resort over the winter, his loyal wife, and their uniquely gifted son slowly but steadily unfolds as secrets from the Overlook Hotel's past are revealed.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Shining to be better than the print version?

    No, but close.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Shining?

    When Jack Torrance walks into the ballroom and finds it full of partiers for the first time. King described this very well, and Scott was equal to the written word.


    What about Campbell Scott???s performance did you like?

    Scott grew on me as I listened to the story. I thought he did a good job of easing the reader into the evil within the Overlook Hotel and then ratcheting up the horror.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Shining and why?

    This might be a weird answer, but the Overlook Hotel itself. The Overlook Hotel was an evil entity which gained power as it led more and more weak people into doing horrible things.
