    When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, and cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it, until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance.

    "Love these books!"
    Overall

    I did not know what to expect having just finished the Hunger Games series. I loved those and thought that this may be along those lines. Gregor, Boots and all of the other characters in this series are awesome. I just got this book 3 days ago- and have just finished second one. These books are so good I'm going to purchase the books themselves.
    The story is gripping, heartwarming, heartbreaking and just wonderful. There is no swearing - yes these may be more for children than adults but I don't see it that way. I'm looking forward to listening to the 3rd book!

    Story
    (5323)

    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.

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

    The length of it - the fact that it was so well done, I really enjoyed it immensely!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good will persevere even when people muck it up.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scenes with Nick stand out - but I also like Stu Redman, especially in the CDC - he comes across so clearly and strongly.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It's already been made and it can't compare to the book. Some of the actors chosen just didn't suit.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read this book about 20 times - the original shorter version and this version where Stephen King brought back a lot of pages that had been left out in that first publishing. It's awesome that this reading was from that much longer version!
