What the community says about The Stand

  • Olivia Cooper

    "The Stand is a novel about the apocalypse that no one sees coming. It does a fantastic job of illustrating the conflict of the time. "

    "The Stand is probably my favorite book and certainly one of the best books set in a post-apocalyptic world. Stephen Kind delivers characters rich with inner monolouges and excellent interpersonal interaction. Rivalries, jealousies, love affairs all set within a framework of the ultimate fight between good and evil. Flagg, being a recurrent theme in King's books, shines here as the ultimate evil villian and even minor characters like Trashman and Tom Cullen shine. "

    "This is one of the best Stephen King novels bar none. I have read this and been spooked after reading it. It is a good commentary of good vs evil and is classic Stephen King. The novel is long be prepared but it is worth the read. The one thing that is so realistic is the plague that kills most of the population. It is quite realistic."

    "The chosen novel by Stephen King has an interesting premise and fairly good ratings. With that being said, I'm a little skeptical of it being one of his best novels as I have not heard of it. "

    "The Stand is a really good book, but it is a horror book. There are some familiar characters if you have read his other books, and this keeps you on the edge of your seat. I was scared a few times reading it, but this is definitely not for the faint of heart. I do love this book, but it does not belong in the category of best non-horror books by Stephen King."

    "This is one of Stephen King's best works. It is a very long book, but it will keep you turning pages the entire time. The story grabs you and won't let go."

    "Stephen King is one of my favorite author. The Stand is one of my favorite book. It is still fresh in my mind. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience of reading this masterpiece."

    "I've been a fan of Stephen King's since I started reading 30 years ago. The Stand is by far my favorite. I love how all the characters are fully developed so it made it easy to think of them as real people. This book kept me entertained the whole way through. The really liked how the characters came together as either good or evil."

    "The Stand is one of King's best works and with good reason -- though a bit longish (unsurprising for him) and a little contrived toward the end (also unsurprising). Looking at it through the angle of The Dark Tower, I view The Stand as another chapter in the Dark Tower multiverse with the familiar characters of the Man in Black and Roland being incarnated into another form. A worthwhile read for sure and a good take on the classic battle of good versus evil."

    "Stephen King is one of greatest writers of all time so it's no surprised that he created one of the best stories dealing with disease. His fictional classic The Stand creatively depicts the apocalyptic world that results from a world destroyed by disease."
  • Dylan Young
    Written on April 11, 2018
    "The Stand is a book by Stephen King where he relates a vision of an apocalyptic world. Full of plagues debating between what is good and bad. People living in that reality must choose a leader to take them into the uncertain future."
  • Christine Price

    "This is one of his all time classics and one of my favorites of his. I have read this book many times and worn out copies in the past. Well worth a read."

    "I'll admit it...the unabridged version of The Stand is still the longest book I have ever read. At nearly 1200 pages...it is quite the challenge. It took me like 18 months reading it on and off...but I did. I win, but not really. A great story with tons of character development for a large cast of characters."
  • Lorenzo Vásquez
    Written on April 17, 2018
    "While The Stand is arguably a good book, it was written well before 1990 and I was attempting to find a book from 1990. I must say that this did not meet my needs as I specifically required one of the best books from 1990 not 1978 when The Stand was written. "

    "The Stand is an excellent example of fiction made real. It feels like Stephen King went into the future and wrote a warning for future times. The Stand is a must read."

    "I enjoyed the original version of this story and I think it was Stephan King's best work to date, or at least close to the top. This is a great story to tell concerning the demise of mankind at their own doing where a line is drawn between good and evil. This story being offered in the kindle version is a good idea as it brings exposure to a greater audience with the ease of convenience."

    "Stephen King has always been a pretty demonizing writer in my opinion but that makes for a great novel. "The Stand" is a great book about disease, good, bad, and evil. Ultimately this book made me view it in a real life view because catastrophic events can happen to the human race at any time and we must be prepared. "
