Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arguably the greatest horror novel ever written by the greatest horror novelist, this is a true Modern Classic that was first published in 1978, and then re-published in 1990, complete and unabridged, with 150,000 words cut from the first edition restored, and now accompanied by unusual and imaginative line art. The total copies for both editions, in hardcover and paperback, exceeds 4 million worldwide.

The Stand is a truly terrifying reading experience, and became a four-part mini-series that memorably brought to life the cast of characters and layers of story from the novel. It is an apocalyptic vision of the world, when a deadly virus runs amok around the globe. But that lethal virus is almost benign compared to the satanic force gathering minions from those still alive to destroy humanity and create a world populated by evil.

Stephen King is a brilliant storyteller who has the uncanny gift of putting ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, giving readers an experience that chills and thrills on every page.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

When a man escapes from a biological testing facility, he sets in motion a deadly domino effect, spreading a mutated strain of the flu that will wipe out 99 percent of humanity within a few weeks. The survivors who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge--Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious "Dark Man," who delights in chaos and violence.

(This edition includes all of the new and restored material first published in The StandThe Complete And Uncut Edition.)

My all time favorite Stephen King book. It is a reminder of how far we can go with advances in science and how little it takes make a huge impact to life as we know it.

I read it for the first time thirty years ago, in the summer before I started 8th grade. I took it with me on a camping trip to Northern California, and it caused me to miss many hiking trips - just couldn't stop reading it! I've read it probably 5 times since then - this book rocked my world.
