Review: The Stand

The_Stand_UncutThis book has been on my to-do for the better part of a decade. The Stand is a boisterous novel about a plague that wipes out more than 99% of the population and the struggles with reforming into a nation. I seen countless positive reviews on this book and knew I had to check this book out. After reading it on and off for nearly two months, I’ve finally completed The Stand and already wanting to start my next Stephen King book.

I’m Giving Up on the Dark Tower Series

Spoilers ahead!!!

I’ve recently picked back up on reading. It’s something I stopped doing for years but always looked at getting back into. I always enjoyed it in school but kept telling myself I had no time for. But finally, I joined my awesome local library, and joined Goodreads to get some ideas on where to get started. Now I tend to read almost daily, and even listen to books on my commute to work. Couple this with podcasts, and I have plenty to keep me distracted while driving.

I fell in love with some great authors that I never experienced in school including Kurt Vonnegut, Brandon Sanderson, Brian Vaughan, Neil Gaiman, etc. An author that I have always enjoyed is Stephen King. The guy is a legend and has written some incredible stories. While I was looking for a series to start reading, I’ve always heard that the Dark Tower is incredible and wanted to give it a shot. I tried before with the first book, but was quickly bored and gave up. Friends told me to push on, so I did.
