    Ce'Nedra, Imperial Princess of Tolnedra, is confused. Everyone knows the tales of the Orb protecting the West from the evil god Torak are just silly legends. But here she is, forced to join a quest to recover that stolen Orb. No one believes in sorcery, but Garion's aunt and grandfather seem to be the fabled sorcerers Polgara and Belgarath. Even young Garion is learning to do sorcery. He's just a farm boy, totally unsuitable for an Imperial Princess. Yet for some reason, she has the urge to comfort him.

    Overall

    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.

    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.

    Where does The Stand rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Randall Flagg, King does an excellent job of capturing the sociopathic persona of a person who is the embodiment of evil.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Stu and the others meet mother abagail face to face for the first time.


    If you could take any character from The Stand out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Tom Cullen, his innocent, unjaded view of the world makes me smile.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was superb, I only gave the performance 4 stars because I was really hoping that King would narrate this one himself.

    War seethed across the planet. Machines soared through the air, churned through the seas, crawled across the surface, pushing ever forward, carrying death. Earth was engaged in titanic struggle. Germany, Russia, France, China, Japan: the maps were changing day by day. The hostilities spread in ever-widening ripples of destruction: Britain, Italy, Africa...the fate of the world hung in the balance. Then the real enemy came.

    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.

    The story is great and Nigel Bennett as narrator is brilliant. My only wish is that they would do an unabridged version.
