What did you love best about Voodoo Plague?

Great story, fairly predictable but I loved it anyway.

What did you like best about this story?

Characters are interesting.

What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I am an audiobook devotee and Jeffrey Kafer is quite good as the narrator. Easy to listen to.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Cannot wait for the next in the series. Hope it is longer though.

"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.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Stand to be better than the print version?

Loved the audiobook - had to give it a few minutes to get used to the voice and after that I was hooked.

Which scene was your favorite?

The beginning when Franny was digging in the garden with her dad and telling him she was pregnant and his reaction.

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

Randall Flagg
