Publisher's Summary

"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. And those who are listening to The Stand for the first time will discover a triumphant and eerily plausible work of the imagination that takes on the issues that will determine our survival.

    "outstanding"

    Just so incredible, I have listened to this 4 times.

    The depth of characters in this story is simply mesmerizing. When you finnish the book you will find that you actually miss characters and pretty sad it's all over.

    Grover Gardener brings all of the characters to life. I personally find Glen Bateman to be a joy, the way he is written and performed is brilliant.

    Something special this book is, I don't think I will find anything better.

    I hope duma key is good.

    "A very long, emotionally rich story"

    This book will have you laughing, gasping, shouting in frustration, hoping, wondering, and even crying in some places. To call this a book or a story isn't enough; it's a saga. It tells the entire story of a very different bunch of people from start to finish. I could not have guessed where this was going or what was going to happen, even at the halfway point. If you love rich detail in every character, to the point you feel like you know them as a friend then this book is for you. And can I just say Grover Gardner's performance is one of the best I've ever listened to; every character has their own distinct voice and he switches between them flawlessly, applying tones and effects to his voice as realistically as if the story was happening to him, truly heart-rending in some places (especially Christmas day in the snow scene, had a tear roll down my cheek and I'm a 28 year old man!). I can only say that despite its enormous length, you will not be disappointed!

    Story
    "Epic. Just Epic"

    There is a reason for this novel being touted as a modern day epic because, simply, it is.

    As you would expect with Sai King and his story telling, the character development is second to none, the setting of the scene is near perfect and the way that the tension builds into the third stage of the story is enough to tie your stomach in knots.

    Yes, 48 hours of story telling is long, and perhaps there is a little bit of self indulgence, but to be completely honest, it's deserved and does nothing to detract from this truly epic tale.

    A masterpiece of story writing.
