The Stand

"First came the days of the plague. Then came the dreams. Dark dreams that warned of the coming of the dark man. The apostate of death, his worn-down boot heels tramping the night roads. The warlord of the charnel house and Prince of Evil. His time is at hand. His empire grows in the west and the Apocalypse looms." For hundreds of thousands of fans who read The Stand in its original version and wanted more, this new edition is Stephen King's gift.

    "Great story and very well told"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook but wouldn't recommend the 48 hour version as did get a bit long winded at times. Imagine the original or abridged versions would be far more fast paced. If new to Steven king, I wouldn't listen to this first, go for the shining, it or needful things. Hope this helps!

    "Has its moments"

    Narrator was excellent but story good at start and sadly became boring and far fetched for sure .
    Interesting sometimes but the longer the story went , I think it extremely boring for sure.

    "Outstanding"

    Revisiting Kings genre which started my love of reading when I was a teenager, I wasn't sure if I'd love it as much as I did as a kid, if I'd ruin my memories, I was so wrong. Loved this story and how long it was too, I really cared for all the characters, I've lived with them all week and now I miss them 😢

    "Wonderful"

    Having read this book a couple of times, I wondered what it would be like to hear the story. I'm many ways, Grover Gardner's 'performance' rivalled a full ensemble cast. He is extremely talented in making the characters come alive. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this and already look forward to the next time.
