Waterstones Says

With 99% of the population dead from a killer virus, the survivors must choose between two very different leaders; King’s epic apocalyptic saga has become a modern classic of the dystopian genre.  

The tie-in edition of the nine-part series starring Whoopi Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgard, and James Marsden, now in the UK from Starzplay.

First came the virus. And then the dreams... 

A man escapes from a biological testing facility, unknowingly carrying a deadly weapon: a mutated strain of super-flu that will wipe out over 99 percent of the world's population within a few weeks.

Those who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge - Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a peaceful community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the 'dark man', the apostate of death, the warlord of the charnel house and Prince of Evil.

Now the survivors must choose between them - and ultimately decide the fate of all humanity.

Stephen King's apocalyptic vision of a world blasted by plague and tangled in an elemental struggle between good and evil is a classic for our times.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[The Stand] has everything - adventure, romance, prophecy, allegory, satire, fantasy, realism, apocalypse . . . Great!' - The New York Times Book Review 

'A masterpiece ... King says in the novel's introduction that he "wanted to write a fantasy epic like The Lord of the Rings, only with an American setting", and that's absolutely what he did ... The Stand is dense and rich. Every character is full and alive' - The Guardian 

'A fabulous teller of stories who can create an entire new world and make the reader live in it' - The Express

“Apocalyptic!”

Although I have this in hardback I bought the paperback edition for holiday reading. This is the most amazing book, with a vast canvas of mindblowing events and Stephen King's usual amazing characterisations. I... More

“Unputdownable!”

This epic, epic novel is something else. It really is.
Defining description, it is an epic tale of humanity vs evil and is probably one of the greatest books written over the past one hundred years.
