A review of the stand a novel by stephen king

a review of the stand a novel by stephen king Stephen king, who helped adapt his novel for this production, appears several times as one of the citizens of new boulder look very sharp for a grown-up mike lookinland, the youngest brady bunch son, as a military sentinel, and kareem abdul-jabbar as the streetwise voice of doom in a collapsing manhattan beseiged by man-made plague.

The stand was originally published in 1979 i’m reviewing an extended version with approximately four hundred additional pages the original was cut by four hundred pages to save on printing costs. The stand is probably the biggest book i’ve ever read, one of the most enjoyable books i’ve ever read, and is hands down my favorite book that jolly old stephen king has ever written.

Striking a far less hysterical tone than in the shining, king has written his most sweeping horror novel in the stand, though it may lack the spinal jingles of salem's lot in part this is because the stand, with its flow of hundreds of brand-name products, is a kind of inventory of american culture superflu has hit the us and the world, rapidly wiping out the whole of civilization--excepting the one-half of one percent who are immune. The stand was epic in its original form, and this edition, with expanded story lines and restored cuts lives up to the original all of stephen king's books are excellent, but this one is a parable for modern times of the age-old battle between good and evil read it again if you have read it before. I have heard of stephen king a many times he is one of most popular authors i never thought i would have read his book one day this is the first book i have read by stephen king stephen king has used very powerful vocabulary and it is very unusual style of vocabulary stephen king is a good writer.

Molly ringwald in the pivotal role of frannie goldsmith was uneven but steadied out over the course of the series laura san giacomo, actually a composite of two roles from stephen king's 1978 novel, did very well as the emotionally labile and apostate nadine cross.

In september 1978, stephen king published the stand, a massive, post-apocalyptic story that captured the imagination of his growing legion of constant readers, introducing them to his ultimate villain, randall flagg.
