it was ok
bookshelves: 2011
Read from March 02, 2010 to February 23, 2011

It was ok. A book that is over a thousand pages needs to be more than "ok." The Stand works as a thousand pager because it's good and interesting from cover to cover. This book is not.

There were too many characters with too many like sounding names. I don't remember any other books where I have gotten characters mixed up but I did with this one. Even on the final few pages people were named and I was like, who the heck is that?

The first 500 pages were boring but if you make it past that point it gets better. The only reason I read this book was because my mom was nice enough to buy it for me. I don't recommend it unless you are a serious Stephen King fan who wants to read everything he puts out.
