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.

    "First Stephen King novel"

    A long story but worthwhile. I enjoyed the narrators voice but not to all tastes.

    "An epic saga"

    A fantastic work. Brilliant characters brought to life by the narrator. A very long book but it serves as a great way to bond with and understand each character.

    "fantastic"

    Well I have read this book several times. I am enjoying listening to it far more than reading it and that is saying something. It is a strange experience now as I first read it as a teenager and now am older than the characters I saw as old men in those days.
    However revisiting these characters is like finding dear old friends who I have missed. I have not even finished yet but I felt I had to review it for anyone thinking of listening.
    I was not sure at first about the narrator, however he quickly grew on me and is very versatile and accomplished.

    I am now remembering why I loved this book so much. So for new readers go for it. And old readers who want to re-meet and fall in love with Stu, Nick and the others then I say just ah you're are going to have a real treat.... But hopefully not a sweet dark treat like Larry finds in New York...

    "An epic"

    This is one long book! I think it could be shorter and retain its magic but to be honest I enjoyed it enough to forgive it its size! Interesting characters , growing and evolving, are what keep this book together from beginning to end.

    Story
    "sweat, blood, tears and thought provoking!"

    great story that kept me griped from the beginning, and it's a long listen. I'm not usually one for stories with religion as a prominent theme, but it was very tastefully done. I didn't feel preached at at all.

    the narrator has done a wonderful job, his voice suits the story and the characters perfectly.

    all in all a very entertaining listen!

    Story
    "Captain trips of a jorney"

    A wonderful story of good vs. evil. the characters are well developed and have you rooting for individuals and their struggle.

    The narrator is very good at relaying the sub text and feeling within the book and characters.

    Highly recommended
