really liked it

The Stand is a post-apocalyptic tale with strong supernatural elements. Humanity is decimated by the accidental release of a United States government-created superflu when a military police officer (Charles Campion) reacts to the alarm by dashing off before the base goes on auto-lockdown. The government compounds things by going to great lengths to cover-up the existence of the superflu, its own role in its release, and the true seriousness of the threat it poses. However, given what we are told, humanity was screwed the minute Campion got off the base.

This is one of my favorite Stephen King books.
