In the first book of this brilliant series, Stephen King introduces listeners to one of his most powerful creations: Roland of Gilead, The Last Gunslinger. He is a haunting figure, a loner on a spellbinding journey into good and evil. In his desolate world, which frighteningly mirrors our own, Roland tracks The Man in Black, encounters an enticing woman named Alice, and begins a friendship with the boy from New York named Jake.
When The Sandman, also known as Lord Morpheus - the immortal king of dreams, stories and the imagination - is pulled from his realm and imprisoned on Earth by a nefarious cult, he languishes for decades before finally escaping. By: Neil Gaimanand others. An year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens.
Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses.
Their case seems ironclad. On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.
Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shiningin this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance the boy protagonist of The Shining and the very special year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous Album). This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.
At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, the convicted killers on E Block await their turn to walk the Green Mile and keep a date with the electric chair. Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities in his years working as a guard on the Mile, but he's never met anyone like John Coffey.
Anyone who enters his store finds the object of his or her lifelong dreams and desires: a prized baseball card, a healing amulet. In addition to a token payment, Gaunt requests that each person perform a little "deed", usually a seemingly innocent prank played on someone else from town. These practical jokes cascade out of control, and soon the entire town is doing battle with itself.
Only Sheriff Alan Pangborn suspects that Gaunt is behind the population's increasingly violent behavior. When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job and moves his family to the idyllic, rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true.
Yet despite Ludlow's tranquility, there's an undercurrent of danger that lingers On a brisk autumn day, a year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: His father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense.
But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America - and into another realm. One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery. By: Stephen Kingand others. Johnny Smith awakens from a five-year coma after his car accident and discovers that he can see people's futures and pasts when he touches them.
Many consider his talent a gift; Johnny feels cursed. When Johnny has a disturbing vision after he shakes the hand of an ambitious and amoral politician, he must decide if he should take drastic action to change the future. This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death.
And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen. A world in which good rides on the frail shoulders of the year-old Mother Abagail - and the worst nightmares of evil are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the dark man.
In Stephen King published The Stand, the novel that is now considered to be one of his finest works. But as it was first published, The Stand was incomplete, since more thanwords had been cut from the original manuscript. Now Stephen King's apocalyptic vision of a world blasted by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil has been restored to its entirety. The Stand: The Complete and Uncut Edition includes more than pages of material previously deleted, along with new material that King added as he reworked the manuscript for a new generation.
It gives us new characters and endows familiar ones with new depths. It has a new beginning and a new ending. What emerges is a gripping work with the scope and moral complexity of a true epic. For hundreds of thousands of fans who read or listened to The Stand in its original version and wanted more, this new edition is Stephen King's gift.
And those who are hearing 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. At-home entertainment has become a big part of our daily lives, offering a needed escape and an alternative to the social outings and live events that are currently on hold.
You can look forward to staying in these worlds a little bit longer with these streaming adaptations. I like and respect Stephen King, and am sure the world has benefited from his existence. We are better off for having him among us. And I mostly enjoyed the experience of reading this book. I finished the entire thing in a week or so, always eager to discover what would happen next. I wish he had taken the time to do a serious edit before the reissue, instead of just adding back in the pages that the publisher forced him to cut in for budgetary reasons.
The casual racism of the book alone is embarrassing. Why is a black woman always referred to as a black woman, while a white woman is just a woman? And for the love of all that is good and pure, why would the face of evil incarnate EVER be referred to as the Black Man when he goes by about ten other names in the story? The casual sexism of the book is also surprising coming from an ostensibly liberal thinker like King. Three new, strong, interesting female characters are introduced.
This looks promising. These three are warriors. The author kills them off and nobody sheds a tear. The road trips—Tolkienlike in their seemingly endless quality—involve groups of exclusively male leaders. I know King has said he hates to do research, but for crying out loud, surely byor at least byhe could have bothered to discover that deaf people, if they remain silent, are doing so by choice, and that their vocal cords are by no means defective? A deaf person absolutely can and will cry out in fear and pain if physically assaulted.
Surely, even without doing any research, as a parent himself King is aware that breast milk helps to confer some level of protection, if not total immunity, from diseases. And I join the legions of King fans who wished for a better ending. Holy Christmas, that was disappointing. And I hated seeing my favorite characters die often in mundane ways while less important characters lived. Grade: B Bechdel test: Pass, I think, just barely. I listen mainly on the way too and from work.
This took almost two months to finish. There were times that I was ready for it to be over. I know that King wanted this to be his "Lord of the Rings", his epic tale of the fight between good and evil and it was thrilling and gripping and left me laughing and smiling and loving the characters.
I loved how well Grover Gardner narrated the different voices for the characters. He truly is one of the best out there. And every time Tom Cullens says, "Laws yes", I had to smile. Fantastic book. Don't give up on it- go on the journey, you won't regret it! Before I get into my review, I have to say I've been terribly disappointed in a lot of the reviews of this book.
The book is almost 48 hours long, yet most people barely have two sentences to Album) about it. I know most people have read this edition before, but for people like me, there aren't that many helpful reviews. I've read many many books in my time, but nothing has ever captured my attention the way The Stand did.
It starts off with a sick man plowing into a gas station and spreading the disease to about 3 or 4 people there. However, what intrigued me the most was not the characters themselves, but how they changed and grew. There are some obviously "Good" people, and there are some "Bad" ones. However, I felt like King also put some in the middle. The Way You Look Tonight Isn't It Romantic Don't Get Around Much Anymore Just My Imagination.
