Definitely! It’s one of his best!
Yes it’s brilliant and if you can read the uncut edition
The Stand is my absolute favourite
I been working on it like it so far
Absolutely!! It’s Essential King!
Hell yeah my favorite king book
I love The Stand. It’s one of those books I’ll re-read every few years.
Definitely, that is one of my favourites. I was going to name others but then I realized it would be a ridiculously long list ?
I particularly liked the characters. They stick in your head. Especially the bad ones. Like the Kid or Trashcan Man.
Only could get thru half.. Put it down.. Maybe one day ill finish it but I got bored ?
I thought The Stand was his best novel!
Yes! It is easily one of his best novels!
absolutely his best 🙂
Of all his books, that’s the one you want to read!
My honest take on The Stand is that it is a great book. It has lulls in at times, but it is one of those books it is worth pushing through them to get to the end. You definitely don’t feel like you wasted your time and the resolution is rewarding.
It’s a big read. But yeah you should in fact I’ve been meaning to Reread it myself it’s been a long time. I reread a bunch of other King novels lately and truly enjoyed them all.
I loved The Stand! One of my favorites by him for sure!
It’s King’s finest, surely….
Yes it got voted one of the 100 best books, it’s a classic.
Its worth the time investment
Yes, absolutely, it’s amazing. My family lost me for a few days when I read that, only time I’ve done that to them!
Yes indeed-You will find yourself reading it more than just the one time.
Yes-it’s on my favorite books of all time list.
And I haven’t even read it yet. ? I went on eBay to get the uncut version and had it shipped all the way from US to Finland. ?
The uncut version in my opinion is the best version to read, I hope you enjoy it
Yes, it’s one of his better books although too long
My hubby is a huge fan and said ABSOLUTELY! It’s one of his faves!
Absolutely! It’s probably his best work.
What is the difference between the uncut version and regular book?

Being from Maine and less than 100 miles from him I would say yes to all his novels..
Have you met him?
@JenniferNo I have not but hopefully in the future..he also has his own radio station in Bangor Maine he and Tabitha are great donors of their works as well as help the public..fantastic writers and people.
Thanks Jennifer… enjoy his books…and company!!
Yes. Excellent read.
OMG yes yes yes! The whole unabridged thing. Scariest book I ever read. And one of the best! Real believable terror! Don’t watch the movie until after you read.
I live in Bangor Me where Steven and his wife Tabethia live. Wonderful people and philanthropists.
Wow that’s so cool!
@Jennifer Steven and Tabethia used to sit on their front stoop at Halloween giving out candy, but then the crazy fans ruined it, but you see them all the time in town. He owns WKIT radio station too, rock and roll.
