This is a great book, I almost enjoyed listening to it more than I enjoyed reading it. Also another review here states how the lizards tech. was to primitive, if you pay attention to the story you will easily figure out why this is not so.
It is one of the best. The Stand is the first King book that I read and is still my favorite. Personally I love the amount of detail he puts into his books and The Stand is, in my opinion, an example of King at his best. For me it ranks up their with The Tailsman and The Dark Tower series. In response to some of the negative reviews I say this; I concede the point that, yes, there are
Randall Flagg, King does an excellent job of capturing the sociopathic persona of a person who is the embodiment of evil.
When Stu and the others meet mother abagail face to face for the first time.
Tom Cullen, his innocent, unjaded view of the world makes me smile.
The narrator was superb, I only gave the performance 4 stars because I was really hoping that King would narrate this one himself.
The story is great and Nigel Bennett as narrator is brilliant. My only wish is that they would do an unabridged version.
All the readings I have made my way through have been great so far.
My only issue w/ this book is the charecter Relg (sp?), the cave diviner. He plays an essential role, but he is by far one of the most annoying literary charecters I have come across.
