Fiction. Horror. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death.
And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides??or are chosen. A world in which good rides on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail??and the worst nightmares of evil are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the dark man.
In 1978 Stephen King published The Stand, the novel that is now considered to be one of his finest works. But as it was first published, The Stand was incomplete, since more than 150,000 words had been cut from the original manuscript.
Now Stephen King's apocalyptic vision of a world blasted by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil has been restored to its entirety. The Stand : The Complete And Uncut Edition includes more than five hundred pages of material previously deleted, along with new material that King added as he reworked the manuscript for a new generation. It gives us new characters and endows familiar ones with new depths. It has a new beginning and a new ending. What emerges is a gripping work with the scope and moral complexity of a true epic.
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 reading 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.

I'd read The Stand over 30 years ago and remembered virtually nothing, save for about three pages early on where we see the virus jumping from person to person, country to country. THAT was scary (little did I know...). This version is 400 pages longer than the original and the immediate impact of the virus (and its contagiousness) wasn't nearly as impactful.

Still, this is an excellent book that was hard to put down. There's no one who writes like King; his dialogue is nearly perfect and the characters are pretty well rounded.

Well worth it. ( )

By far my favorite King novel. This is the second time I’ve read this, the first being back ‘08. It was even better the second time and I caught things I either missed or glossed over the first.

I love the way King weaves multiple themes and ideals together that make not just an interesting story but one that makes the reader actually think. ( )

I couldn't tell you how many times I've read The Stand. I read the original version as a young teen and the uncut, and far superior, version when it came out. Less scary than most of his books, it is one of his best works for character development. There are some uses of language that haven't aged well, but they were true to their time period (1978) and clearly born of ignorance rather than hostility. This read was as ever a delight, but in many ways even more so as my spouse, who doesn't like scary things and is definitely the gentler spouse, asked me to pick out a Stephen King for our out-loud book. He knows how much I love the author, and just asked that I be willing to skip any bits that were too much for him. I gladly did this, there were only a couple, and enjoyed the story of Kojak more than ever because of how much my husband loves dogs and his delighted cries of "What a good boy!" throughout the book.

Esta narración cuenta cómo un virus gripal, creado artificialmente como posible arma bacteriológica, se extiende por Estados Unidos y provoca la muerte de millones de personas. Los supervivientes tienen sueños comunes, en los que aparecen una anciana y un hombre joven. La mujer anciana los incita a viajar a Nebraska para combatir a Randall Flagg, un abominable personaje que lidera las fuerzas del mal y busca su aniquilación definitiva mediante un temible arsenal.

One of my favorite books I have ever read. I reread it every few years, because it is so long, but it's just as good as the first time I read it. ( )

In short (well, not so short), this is the book that has everything - adventure, romance, prophecy, allegory, satire, fantasy, realism, apocalypse, etc., etc. Even Roger Rabbit gets mentioned. ''The Stand'' does have some great moments and some great lines... But the overall effect is more oppressive than imposing.

We need help, the Poet reckoned.
--Edward Dorn
Outside the street's on fire In a real death waltz Between what's flesh and what's fantasy And the poets down here Don't write nothing at all They just stand back and let it all be And in the quick of the night They reach for their moment And try to make an honest stand... -- Bruce Springsteen
...And it was clear she couldn't go on, The door was opened and the wind appeared, The candles blew and then disappeared, The curtains flew and then he appeared, Said, "Don't be afraid, Come on, Mary," And she had no fear And she ran to him And they started to fly... She had taken his hand... Come on, Mary, Don't fear the reaper... -- Blue Oyster Cult
Well the deputy walks on hard nails And the preacher rides a mount But nothing really matters much, It's doom alone that counts And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn "Come in," she said, "I'll give ya Shelter from the storm." -- Bob Dylan
