The StandThe Stand by Stephen King

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Traveling Sister Reads Review by NORMA, BRENDA and KACEEY!!

Let’s take a stand against evil!!

5 epic stars for THE STAND by STEPHEN KING as we all thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience of reading this masterpiece of a novel together.

With not too many of Stephen King’s novels read and not really being all that familiar with his work, when we thought of King we thought of horror, disturbing, and very frightening came to our minds. THE STAND is much more than that and not what we expected at all as we all went into this one pretty much blind. This is a whole different kind of disturbing and an unforgettably frightening story but yet hopeful with such a complex and believable story of human behaviour. It’s clear to us now why this is considered a masterpiece.

How can we not say something about the length of this very long book and what an achievement we all felt after getting through it. Yeah us! We spent two weeks with this complex plot and intense and complicated characters and enjoyed the discussions it created with each other.

STEPHEN KING created a believable world here after a devastating destruction of the human race and it left us wondering how it would play out with our generation of technology. Could we survive or rebuild? Hmm Stephen King maybe you could add another 400 pages.

This is an excellent book to choose for a group read and makes for great discussions. Would recommend!

    Fabulicious review, ladies! I have to admit I am probably the only thriller fan in the world who has not read a thing from Stephen King. His books are soooooooo loooooong.

    1. Thank you so much, Christine! I used to read collaboration’s with Peter Straub & Stephen King but haven’t read one of King’s books until just recently! We all really enjoyed it! 😊

    I have never read the book, but ‘grew up’ watching the miniseries that came out in the mid 90s. Did you ladies read the uncut version of The Stand? From my understanding that version has a lot more with ‘Trashcan man’. I am not sure when I will read The Stand, but it will be the uncut version for me!
