I love this book so much, and have read it quite a few times over the years. But my sister, also an avid reader, never wanted to try Stephen King because she doesn't like horror. Ten years ago, she was going through my books, looking for something to read but dismissing all the 'horror'. So I handed her this book and said, 'trust me'. She did, read it, loved it, and then recommended it to all her friends who also thought Stephen King only wrote graphic horror stories and that it wasn't for them.

I read all of King's works and several other authors as well, but this is one of my all-time favorites. I have re-read it several times because the narrative, the construction, the character development is just that good. It sucks me in every time. I first read this book in one night (original release) because I was so afraid that when I fell asleep I would dream about Flagg...I was laying down, holding the book up and if I drifted I dropped the book on my face and this refreshed me...

I eagerly await new books from Stephen King but The Stand is the best book ever. I will pick it up from time to time and just let it fall open and read from there. It is like checking in with old friends. I do this with a few of his books but this is the one i love the most!

This is my favourite of all the books -- I went thru 3 paperback versions and then was given the hardcovers for Christmas presents. I have all the SK books & read them over & over (sucker for punishment). In our house, if you put an SK book down for anyreason, somebody else picked it up. So there were always 4 bookmarks in the book & somebody skulking around waiting for the book to be put down. Got to be so many arguments that I started using them for bedtime stories!. Thanks Stephen for so much great reading!!
