The Stand
The Stand | Stephen King
Stephen Kings apocalyptic vision of a world blasted by plague and tangled in an elemental struggle between good and evil remains as riveting and eerily plausible as when it was first published.A patient escapes from a biological testing facility, unknowingly carrying a deadly weapon: a mutated strain of super-flu that will wipe out 99 percent of the worlds population within a few weeks. Those who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emergeMother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a peaceful community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious Dark Man, who delights in chaos and violence. As the dark man and the peaceful woman gather power, the survivors will have to choose between themand ultimately decide the fate of all humanity.(This edition includes all of the new and restored material first published inThe Stand:The Complete And Uncut Edition.)From the Trade Paperback edition.

Flagg actually reminds me of The Prophet from Station Eleven, except he seems much scarier. I hope he doesn't meet Frannie 😰

This book is so big and heavy, it‘s awkward. So I gave up and bought the ebook, too. I still think all physical books should come with an ebook copy. Especially if they are massively chunky.

We are hosting hubbie‘s holiday work party tonight. I have been cooking and cleaning for days. These are on my bed calling to me. I just want to curl up and read. Parties are so not my thing. Sigh.

Mehso-so

My reaction to finishing this book was not a contemplative reaction to the story, but rather “I‘M FREE!!” I‘m swearing off of overly verbose white men who write unnecessarily long (over 1000 pages) novels. This is my 4th one of those this year, and it simply wasn‘t worth it. I wanted to love this book, but I don‘t see what all of the fuss is about. If this is Stephen King‘s best, maybe I can stop my annual reading of him.

Soubhiville I remember loving this book when I read it (in high school), but I hardly remember anything about it now (25ish years later) and I have no desire to reread it. 2w
shaynarae @Soubhiville Yeah, I realize this book is at a disadvantage with my particular taste in books at this age, culture having changed since its publication, and the numerous dystopian books that have come out with a similar premise. It‘s hard to appreciate it for what it was 25 years ago. 2w

It's super appropriate to choose this title for the prompt because I'm currently rereading it with litsy peeps! 😃💕📚 This is the book that made me a King fan. Prior to this book, I did not really like his work. But the excellent worldbuilding, storytelling, and characterization of this tome stole my heart and converted me into a fan for life!

“She also thought there was good in Larry, great good. It was there, but this late on it would take nothing short of a catastrophe to bring it out.”

Considering what‘s about to happen in the book, I suspect that is some epic foreshadowing right there! 🧐

From a library sale today.Most were a buck , one was 50 cents.Shout out to @emilyhaldi the Stephen King is a first edition, sadly no dust jacket , plucked from in front of a scanner person.No barcode on this one , even if it was dust jacketed.😃👍

DaveGreen7777 @ljuliel As I think about it, a book where everyone gets sick was probably not the smartest thing for me to read at a doctor‘s office! 😂🤣 1mo
ljuliel The last surgery I had, I was packing a bag to go to the hospital. I put in Fannie Flagg‘s , “Can‘t Wait To Get to Heaven “ , and “The Five People You Meet in Heaven. “. Good grief.... I looked at them and thought that wasn‘t quite the theme I was going for. I‘m not religious, and I highly doubt my elevator is going Up. ⬆️ . I‘ve got the hotdog forks and marshmallows ready , if you get my drift. I tossed those books out chose different ones. 1mo

Meaw_catlady Nice !!! Hopefully they don‘t make you sit there forever !! 1mo
DaveGreen7777 @ljuliel Oh, wow, I hear ya, I probably would have changed books too... both to find something more fluffy for a hospital stay, and to avoid getting stern looks from the doctors and nurses as they might think those titles indicate a lack of faith in their abilities! 😂🤣 1mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
This was chaotic, exhausting and so good. King had such a way of going through and explaining the disease and getting you so attached to the characters. Towards the end my anxiety was so high for these characters. The battle between good and evil was a primary plot in this book and king did it so well. There are a bunch of triggers for this and I list them and go into more detailed review on my blog. Link in bio.

Macnjen One of the scariest books he's written, in my opinion besides IT and Misery. 2mo

2. Not my thing. They just don't impress me
3. Tea and Dosa (it's almost dinner time here tho)
4. GMT +5:30 (Indian Standard Time)
5. Black Magic 🤣

Thank you for this #WondrousWednesday @Eggs 😊

1️⃣ - Tagged! @Branwen and I have talked about buddy reading it later this year, so I may finally get this one off my TBR shelf! 😀
2️⃣ - “Storm Front” by Jim Butcher
3️⃣ - Too many to count! 😳 And I‘m an accountant! 🤓
4️⃣ - “The Devil in the White City” by Erik Larson. 4 out of 5 stars.
5️⃣ - @RvnclawWhovian (welcome back 🥳), @Mynameisacolour @AmyRebecca @Jess_Franzino @Nute @Ddzmini @Linear

Eggs Stand is a chunkster but so good. #3-🤣🤣 3mo
ShelfRighteous I have read Stand and I felt cheated of my time at the end. It's like there's no conclusion to the story🙈 3mo

Nute Thanks for the tag @DaveGreen7777. Good morning!☀️ 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @ShelfRighteous I understand, I actually felt a similar way about Mr. King‘s “It” novel! 🤡🎈🙈 Not that there was no conclusion to that one, but just the the climax really fell flat for me after so much build up! 😕 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Nute Anytime! Happy Wednesday! 😁 3mo
Mynameisacolour Thanks for the tag! & I loved The Stand! I read it over 10 years ago and certain lines still randomly pop into my head from time to time. 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Mynameisacolour Oooh, I‘m even more excited to read “The Stand” now! 😀 3mo
Branwen YASSSSS! I am so pumped to buddy read this with you! It is still hands down my favorite King book and honestly the one that turned me into a huge fan of his! 💕 3mo
Ddzmini Thank you for the tag 📖😋 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen I can‘t wait to buddy read this with you, Becky! 😀 Hopefully around Halloween! 👻 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Ddzmini You‘re very welcome! 😊 3mo
Meaw_catlady Oh I have the stand and have been meaning to read it!!! @branwen 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Meaw_catlady Oooh, were you planning to read it around Halloween? Maybe you could join @Branwen and I on our buddy read??? 😀 3mo
AmyRebecca For those of you yet to read The Stand, get the complete & uncut edition! 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @AmyRebecca I do have the complete & uncut edition! 😀 I want to read the entire story! 😊 3mo
Branwen @Meaw_catlady @ DaveGreen7777 YES! OMG! Please let's do this? If the three of us had a buddy read for this book it would be SO FREAKING AWESOME AND EPIC! 😍 My love for this book is limitless! 💕 📚 3mo
Meaw_catlady @branwen OKAY! Your enthusiasm has convinced me ! 💕🖤📖 is it pretty scary? 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen @Meaw_catlady A buddy read with two of my favorite people on the planet! 😊 I‘m going to be smiling for weeks, now! 🤗 3mo
Branwen @Meaw_catlady @DaveGreen7777 Omg this is the BEST DAY EVER! Huzzah! I'm so excited! I wouldn't say it's overly scary, per se? Not like It, or some of his other works. Some parts, definitely. I think for me the scary part is that a) I think it is something that could potentially happen someday, and b) humanity can be screwed up (but also so beautiful). I think more than scary it is a testament to the highs and lows of humanity. (edited) 3mo
Meaw_catlady @Branwen I‘m super intrigued! This will be fun ! 🖤 glad the universe brought us together for this moment! 👏 3mo
Branwen @Meaw_catlady @DaveGreen7777 ME TOO, FRIEND! ME TOO! 😃 When would you guys like to start it? Do you want to make it in October, since it'll be Halloween? I'm super flexible so whenever you guys want to set it up is fine with me! 💕 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen @Meaw_catlady October works for me. If early October is a little tricky for anyone, we can even start it on Halloween weekend if you want! That might be a great way to kick off the holiday! 🎃👻😱 3mo
Meaw_catlady @branwen @DaveGreen7777 any day in October works with me ! I‘m flexible as well! Also I am super excited because buddy reads help me get through my TBR! Haha 🎃🖤🤗 (edited) 3mo
Kaila-ann The Stand is great! 3mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 @Meaw_catlady Anytime in October is fine with me as well! But I LOVE your idea of starting Halloween weekend! 🎃👻🦇 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Kaila-ann Thank you! 😁 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen @Meaw_catlady I‘m so excited for this buddy read! 😊 I‘m thinking maybe Halloween weekend will be a good starting point, if that works for you both. That will give me time to finish Oathbringer and also another buddy read I had scheduled with someone once I‘m done with Oathbringer. Thanks! 😌 3mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 @Meaw_catlady Whoo hoo! That sounds perfect! 😀 3mo
Meaw_catlady @DaveGreen7777 @Branwen I agree with Halloween weekend! 🖤 I‘m excited 😆 3mo

Got stuck at home from work again because I‘m still fighting phenomena ☠️ decided to make some coffee ☕️ load a bowl 🌳 and dive back into The Stand. About halfway through and still so much to read! I shouldn‘t have shaken so much time off from reading 🤓🤓

What are your go to books when sick?

1. Does ignoring the count? 😂 Even still took me way too long to come up with it considering it‘s a favorite book
2. Teleportation for sure. I love to travel and that would make it a snap
3. Virgo
4. Funeral service for my grandpa ☹️ The rest of the weekend though I‘m hoping to get caught up on reading and sleep
