Rereading with Some Trepidation: The Stand

I’m about halfway through a re-read of The Stand. I read it for the first time when I was probably way too young and remember loving it. But I’m having some bumps on this reread.

Which you know it’s been decades people change you never read the same thing the same way no matter how much you might have loved it. But it does make me wonder- 1. Does knowing the fate of these characters change the reading experience?

As I’ve mentioned that other big fantasy adaptation- well I pretty much wound up despising every choice they made for the female characters especially. It’s still too early to really judge The Witcher after only 8 episodes but I think they’re off to an interesting start.
