Publisher Description

The tie-in edition of the nine-part CBS All Access series starring Whoopi Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgard, and James Marsden.

When a man escapes from a biological testing facility, he sets in motion a deadly domino effect, spreading a mutated strain of the flu that will wipe out 99 percent of humanity within a few weeks. The survivors 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.

Amazing

Wish they could do a movie/tv program that does it justice. So enjoyable.

Excellent read

I couldn’t put this book down, and now that I’m done I feel hungry for more! The way Stephen can describe a scene or location makes you feel like your there, in the room with the well defined characters he has created. Highly recommend reading. Added bonus: reading this book through our own real life pandemic helped it hit a little closer to home!

Over twenty five years and still my fav

Nothing I have read, before or since, has grabbed me so quickly and completely as The Stand. I reread it every once in a while and it still has the same chilling effect. Totally engrossing, like a favourite book should be.
