The Stand

By: Stephen King

I finally finished my reread of The Stand this weekend and overall I’m glad I did. I’d still give it 5 stars for its sheer scope (even if it could still use some editing) and also because I’m older now I felt like I understood it on a different level and enjoyed picking up on some of the ways the stand has influenced modern works.

But seriously the most fascinating thing I learned concerned Marvel!

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?

2. Did I actually like the mini-series better and simply confuse that with the book?

And news about the upcoming remake makes me wonder about that version as well…
