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.

My favorite book!

The Stand by Stephen King is by far my favorite book of all time. The epic scope of all those pages wraps the reader in a secure blanket. This book will terrify, it will raise your hopes, it will force you to shed a tear and reexamine our world. The characters are all people you know and have known all your life, so reading this book is like a reunion. I have read this novel more than a dozen times since it was first released. Revisiting it every now and again is like taking a long trip home. The iBooks version is true to Mr. King's expanded edition with every word. Using an iPad to read a book of this size and scope was a joy. This was my first iBook and what a treat. Thank you Stephen King for this novel. It has helped make me a better man.

One of King’s Best

If you haven’t read this before, do yourself a favor and buy the edited and abridged version. I have both books- abridged and unabridged- in hardback, and I bought this one because it was on sale. I skipped countless pages. I should’ve bought the shorter ebook. (FIVE STARS FOR THE FULLY EDITED & ABRIDGED COPY OF THE STAND!!)
