I'm one of those odd people who read a large number of other Stephen King books before I actually read the Stand.

For whatever reason, I didn't enjoy it as much. There's nothing wrong with the solid development of a pre and post-apocalyptic event, but to me, at times, the story just lost its focus. It was still quite entertaining, and it was nice to see Flagg in his classic role.

Maybe reading it in series was the better way to go about it. Reading it all at once just made the slower parts seem slower rather than being good pacing. Perhaps I'll have to give it a shot again someday.
