Stephen King’s 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 world’s population within a few weeks. Those who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge—Mother 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 them—and ultimately decide the fate of all humanity.

4.5 Fire, Apocalypse and Pop-culture with a spoonful of sugar. Who are the really sick ones?

I have read three books by Joe Hill before, enjoyed them and I was excited when I saw his new novel on offer at Net Galley. In short, the book offers a post-apoca...

4.0 The Stand - Stephen King
For many, The Stand needs no introduction. If you're a King fan, chances are you've already tackled this behemoth. Others seem to be intimidated by the sheer size of this monster and move on to his other stories that don't weigh as much a Buick. For those of you who may be trying to decide on whethe...

4.0 The Stand by Stephen King
This is a tough book to rate and review. As a book club selection, this novel is completely outside the realm of what I would choose to read on my own, so I was surprised at how much I liked certain elements of King's story. I was less surprised by how little I liked a few other elements. It was riv...
