Publisher's Summary

First came the days of the plague. Then came the dreams. Dark dreams that warned of the coming of the dark man. The apostate of death, his worn-down boot heels tramping the night roads. The warlord of the charnel house and Prince of Evil. His time is at hand. His empire grows in the west and the Apocalypse looms.
For hundreds of thousands of fans who read The Stand in its original version and wanted more, this new edition is Stephen King's gift. And those who are listening to The Stand for the first time will discover a triumphant and eerily plausible work of the imagination that takes on the issues that will determine our survival.

King's greatest novel

The long awaited audio release of SK's greatest book. A post-apocalyptic gem that has King's typical weave of immensely detailed characters, immersed in an epic biblical story. Grover Gardner does a great job in the narration and doesn't 'over do' the female characters.I can't recommend this book more highly.
