OnlySheStandsThere A lot of people say that Stephen King has difficulty with endings. How did you think it held up (no spoilers)?

It was okay. It wasn't as bad as most of his other endings but it wasn't... Brandon Sanderson level of ending :P


OnlySheStandsThere To be fair, nothing is. Sanderson is on his own level.

Oh for sure! Not sure which King's books you have read but I would say, for me, it would be kinda like "Pet Semetary". I don't love the ending but it's perfectly fine!


OnlySheStandsThere Good to know. Thanks!

Brianne Glad to hear you still have this a high rating! I’m having a hard time finishing it (mentioned on your YouTube that I felt weird with the fantasy elements). I’m just going to have to push through!

Christina Alexander I've been wondering about this one, definitely I'm going to pick it up next time I go to the library

Kaltham Gosh this book completely took over me. The ending was weird but not bad but then again, that’s almost always the case.

C. I remember most episodes of this TV movie. I own the hefty hardcover and will read it sometime.

Laura Smith Currently reading this! Nick is 100% my favorite character


message 11: by Manny (new)

Manny I enjoyed most of the book. I did feel some type of way about that ending though.


message 12: by Callie (new)

Callie I read it in the summer time so I wouldn't get the flu.


message 13: by Toby (new)

Toby Spackman This is my favourite book. Possibly because I feel it is an achievement in itself just to finish it! Glad you got around to reading it. Where do you rank it with other King novels?


message 14: by April (new)

April Slowly getting through the The Stand but I also read Station Eleven a while back and loved that!


message 15: by C. (new)

C. I liked the multi-part film on Canadian television when I was a young girl. The survivors playing the 45 song on a record player, "Don't Dream It's Over" by Crowded House, stays in my mind.

Amber This is one of my favorite Stephen King books. Its a pretty good read.

Bobbi Brinks i got weirdly sick during it too lol it took me two weeks to read it but i got the flu during the first part when he is describing all those deaths.

Jason Williams I don’t feel he is bad with endings... I feel he is a mad genius and wants to invoke nightmares.... lmao
