This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death.

And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides or are chosen. A world in which good rides on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abigail and the worst nightmares of evil are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the dark man.

THE STAND has been on my bookshelf now for a whole year and I STILL haven’t read this yet 😦 the size itself intimidates me – at 1325 pages, it will be the second longest book I have ever read…the first being IT by Stephen King. IT took me three whole weeks to finish, in between full time work and general life things. So I need to make sure that I have a clear enough calendar to give THE STAND the attention it deserves!

This tag was bought to life by the wonderful Lauren at Page Turner 20
