Paradise Fields eNone of us want to see portents and omens no matter how much we like our ghost stories and the spooky films None of us want to really see a Star in the East or a pillar of fire by night We want peace and rationality and routine If we have to see God in the black face of an old woman it s bound to remind us that there s a devil forvery god and our devil may be closer than we like to think A plague has scaped a lab killing most of the population only a few a mere fraction of the whole has immunity or manages to survive being infected It is over in a matter of weeks Civilization grinds to a halt then collapses and then falls into chaosA Mad Max world is born A virus that kills 994% of the people it infects is a very stupid virus Even the Black Plague had a 20% survival rate so for a virus to act this stupidly it would have to be man made The last thing any virus should do is kill the host Death of the host leads to death of the virus Now most of the young folks and old folks were gone and most of those in between God had brought down a harsh judgment on the human race Invariably we can t help bringing God into any situation where we think a judgment has been handed down on humanity but heshe doesn t have anything to do with this This is man destroying himself Some would make the case that God could have interceded could have saved us if we had been worthy but then when have we ver been worthy Since we are made in his image I do think sometimes what God if he xists likes least in us is what he likes least about himself The whole theory of God is built on good and vil If vil xists then oddly God xists The Vatican has been working relentlessly to prove for centuries that pure vil xists to justify the whole need for their continued xistence The proof might be rising out of the ashes of this virulent plague He was coming Flagg was coming like some terrible horror monster out of the scariest picture The Accidental Beauty Queen ever made The dark man s cheeks were flushed with jolly color hisyes were twinkling with happy good fellowship and a great hungry voracious grin stretched his lips over huge tombstone teeth shark teeth and his hands were held out in front of him and there were shiny black crow feathers fluttering from his hair The survivors are dreaming about the Dark Man and they are dreaming about the old black woman in the cornfields of Nebraska These dreams are as vivid as they are confusing There is a battle for their souls going on They must choose Do they go to Randall Flagg or do they flock to Abagail FreemantleYou would think it would be an asy decision Don t most of us think of ourselves as good people Of course we would join Abagail the self anointed prophet of God Except maybe it isn t so clearly cut as the two groups grow it is starting to look like an ven split Abagail brings her flock to Boulder Colorado wanting to use the natural barrier of the Rockies to be the dividing line between her good people and the vil people following the Dark Man Not to mention that she knows there has to be a reckoning But are they vil When people from the Boulder Free Zone mingle with those from the Dark Side they find them to be normal people just like the people they left back in Boulder The biggest difference is that they are afraid and fear as we know is the most insidious and Crown of Stars (Crown of Stars, easiest way to control people It becomes very clear that Abagail s army is really only fighting one man one man with supernatural powers Never Tap tap tap The crow looking in at him seeming to grin And it came to him with a dreamy testicle shriveling certainty that this was the dark man his soul his ka somehow projected into this rain drenched grinning crow that was looking in at him checking up on him So it is sort of interesting to speculate about whether there are trulyvil beings like Randall Flagg in the world waiting for their opportunity waiting for people to need someone larger than themselves to lead Their power grows as people choose to believe in them As long as civilization xists and people are reasonably content a person like Flagg is never given an opportunity to thrive We through our own discontent mpower vilThis novel is one of the King pics A fan poll on Goodreads The Best of Stephen King Poll shows that his fans still believe this is his best book My favorite book and the one that I feel will be considered his masterpiece is IT a book that I feel really brings together all of his best skills in building characters and shows off his gift for creating twisty scary plots IT is 2 on the Goodreads poll Pennywise in my opinion might have had as large an impact on readingwatching audiences as Norman Bates in Psycho Once you have been introduced to Pennywise try walking past a storm drain without giving it a wide berth The Stand has a large cast and most readers will have a favorite character I liked several characters actually and wondered if I was going to find myself in a George RR Martin universe where identifying with a character was tantamount to self inflicted grief I was fortunate to stick with Stu Redman He is a hick from Texas who continues to show hidden depths as circumstances shape and reveal his character He made me smile with the following response when it looks like dire circumstances may lead to a slow death Ralph came over to Stu and knelt down Can we get you anything Stu Stu smiled Yeah Everything Gore Vidal This Forsaken Earth ever wrote those books about Lincoln and Aaron Burr and those guys I always meant to read the suckers Now it looks like I got the time Gotta love the thought of a redneck from Texas reading the unabashed New York homosexualIn the forward Stephen King talks about the meeting he had with the publishing group about the size of The Stand It was originally published at about 800 pages but then when they decided to reissue the uncut version he was able to put back in about 400 pages that he had been forced toxcise I reluctantly agreed to do the surgery myself I think I did a fairly good job for a writer who has been accused over and over again of having diarrhea of the word processor He agreed to the cuts because the publishing team made a compelling case They were able to show him the sales from his previous four books the profit margin and if he sold the same number of books of The Stand how much slimmer the profit margin would be because of the to produce the 400 xtra pages SO THE CUTS WERE NOT MADE FOR EDITORIAL REASONS the cuts not made for ditorial reasons for common sense accounting reasons King was very happy to have the orphaned material reunited with the rest of the book The book does bog down at times for me I think that is inevitable with a book this size King is taking on some larger themes here and for the most part keeps all the plates spinning in the air I read a lot of post apocalyptic books and I m sure if I The Garden of Happy Endings ever let myself be put on a couch a psychologist willxplore those reasons thoroughly but one thing I notice while I am immersing myself in The Stand is that I have a greater appreciation for my life and the cocoon that civilization wraps around me to keep me safe and provide me with the necessities so that I can have the time I want to read putter and write Maybe I m not as obsessed with the END OF THE WORLD as much as I am finding new ways to appreciate the wonderful life I do have I have to admit though that I had to agree with lifestyle philosophy of the sociologist Glen Bateman But Bateman himself hadn t wanted to get in on the ground floor of society s reappearance He seemed perfectly content at least for the time being to go for his walks with Kojak paint his pictures putter around his garden and think about the sociological ramifications of nearly Total Decimation I Would Hope decimation I would hope could ignore the siren calls of the ancient wise woman in Nebraska and the seductive pull of The Dark Man and just Campfire enjoy the peace and uiet of a tranuil world without the constant noise of people talking on their cell phones

review The Stand

Have in common was I LOVED IT ach timeAt a remote US Army base a strain of influenza is accidentally released Despite a lock down soldier Charles Campion is able to scape with his wife and child By the time the military is able to track his whereabouts Campion has spread the disease around parts of Texas triggering a pandemic which kills off 99 percent of the population The one percent are left in survival mode spread out over the ntire country and plagued by strange dreams about two individuals which ventually draw some to Nebraska and some to Las VegasHemingford Home Nebraska Is the home of Abagail Freemantle Mother Abagail a 108 year old woman who receives visions from God She is the Black Heart, Red Ruby embodiment of goodLas Vegas Nevada is where Randall Flagg has set up shop Randall is also called The Dark Man and The Walking Dude He lives to cause death and destruction and has supernatural powers which allow him to be human animal or demon He is thembodiment of vilKing said that he wanted to write a fantasy pic like The Lord of the Rings only with an American setting and that is just what he did THE STAND is a wonderful New Plant Parent: Learn the Ways of Plant Parenthood epic fantasy adventure about good vsvil One that I would recommend to anybody who hasn t read it yet and Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey even to those who have Wow So I have had this awesome paperback door stopper for some time Gift from friend I decided to get the audio through the library and of course now I have added it to my Audible wishlist The narration is freaking awesome The whole damn book is freaking awesome The thing is I didn t think I would like it because I barely remember the movie and am not sure I liked it That was a long time ago and who the hell knows I m justxtremely happy I finally read it Yeah It s long but most books I read or listen to are so that s neither here nor there I just loved reading about all of the people and God's Pocket events And I did laugh at times YES scary stories do have some comedy at times Lol Anyhoonjoy peeps Happy Reading Mel Want to catch the flu Read The StandI caught it twice in the month it took me to read this book Twice I m rarely sick so it s clearly a thingPost apocalyptic book where most people die from a super flu That part was my favoriteIt then becomes a battle between Good and Evil Some fantasy ЯED elements were included This part was still solid I liked how we got to follow the characters and get to know them I felt some similarities to Station Eleven so if you like The Stand I would give this one a shot too Oh wow it hasn tven been a year since I finished this and I m rereading again I m not sure what I can say about this massive tome that hasn t been said before but I came I read and I conuered I also really njoyed it along the way which says a lot due to my struggle with committing to massive books Does anyone know if there will be a new book to screen adaptation of this one in the near future or if the old mini series is worth the time Anyway I m satisfied and a tiny bit relieved to be finished 3 Thanks to veryone who pushed me to make 2019 the year I picked up The Stand and for all the people who cheered me on along the way I loved this book I read the uncut version years back when I lived in the States maybe in 2002 I loved The Lost Art of Reading Natures Signs everything about itxcept the Moreno ending I m a big fan of Stephen King and have 23 of his books on my shelf Stephen King can only write a goodnding to a book by chance That said the first 95% of his books is generally so good that I can forgive the Monsieur Pain endingOne of the things I like best about King s writing is the way he breathes life into characters andvery day settings For a horror writer this is crucial You have to make A Spark of Light: the fearless new novel from the Number One bestselling author everything utterly believable so that when the monster comes and the stakes are raised the reader feels it s all real and cares about what s at stake The short story The Body on which the film Stand By Me is based is a greatxample of King s genius at making complicated flawed awkward real charactersAnyway The Stand is not typical King as the main core of it is an apocalypse and the super natural horror What If element is rather secondary and low key for most of the story The apocalypse is a believable one a flu pandemic with a mortality rate so high that only a tiny fraction of the population survives King tears the world down in terrifying slow motion and playing on our fears of pandemics it is at once horrifying touching and fascinating King is great at slowly pullingveryday reality apartThe cast of characters who survive this catastrophe is sizeable diverse and interesting A pyromaniac with an array of mental issues a man with learning disabilities a singer who interesting A pyromaniac with an array of mental issues a man with learning disabilities a singer who in the act breaking big others ordinary but no less fascinating under pressureThe literary institutions of this world sniff at horror writers as much as they do fantasy writers but I find King s prose and insights into the human condition to be as powerful as those in many of the plodding works of literary fiction I ve read Readers often don *T Notice It Because It S Not What They Came *notice it because it s not what they came But King is interested in people and how pressure acts on them No one can tell what goes on in between the person you were and the person you become No one can chart that blue and lonely section of hell There are no maps of the change You just come out the other side Or you don t King shows us the inception of the disaster plots its course through his scattered and varied cast and slowly brings those actors together into two communities in the aftermathThe two communities we focus on centre on the supernatural aspect of the book one of them is home to the good folk and the other to the bad The bad camp is ruled over by Randal Flagg who roams through the pages of uite a few of King s books The Dark Tower in particularThe book concludes with the fight between these two camps and ultimately the The Exhaustion Breakthrough ending was a touch unsatisfying for me though not awful by any means The journey to thatnding however was a fascinating thrill ride and well worth the price of The Exhaustion Breakthrough: Unmask the Hidden Reasons You're Tired and Beat Fatigue for Good entryIf you ve not tried Stephen King before then this is a fine place to jump in be warned though it is perhaps the longest of his books with a page count to rival GRRM at his most long winded Join my 3mails a year newsletter prizes M O O N That spells Damn what a great book I knew King had it in him I am a fan of his brilliant 1977 haunted house thriller The Shining but I did not Supplemental Book expect thisThe best post apocalyptic novelver Maybe that is a broad category teaming with great work from talented writers but King s The Stand is an Hark! The Herald Angels Scream epic genre defining workMy friend Michael has a profile statement something to theffect of finding our next 5 star rating I like that sentiment and am Colloquial Polish: The Complete Course for Beginners excited by the opportunity that our next favorite book is out there waiting to be read a new best friend of an author to whom we ve yet to be introduced Here s mine I m late to the party just reading this for the first time in 2015 I think I was always a little intimidated by the length It s a beast and I was a glutton for punishment reading the 1990xtended version weighing in at a heavyweight 1153 pages But it s a runaway train grabbing the reader up and taking him or her where Stephen King wants to take youYes it s a book about a devastating plague but also so so much King weaves in an allegory about the viruses amongst us There is also the spiritual uality of the book King shows how we are sinners in the hands of an angry God and that dreamers will survive and survivors can still dreamI could not help making a comparison with the Left Behind series and associating Flagg to Nicholai Carpathia though King s characterization is far complex and well rounded and like Milton s Satan the most interesting character here is the villain This makes me appreciate his The Gunslinger series and I want to search out Flagg and read about himThis is also an American pic and in its context an American ulogy King shows us the good the bad and the ugly of what we are and what we can be An observant reader will see references to Ursula K LeGuin word for world is woods to Jim Morison Edgar Allan Poe Woody Guthrie and hell Bidadari yang Mengembara even Rod McKuenI know Mr King and havenjoyed many of his works and I have now been amazed by his finest 06252020 Five months later FINISHED What a ride Glad I kept notes on how the novel impacted me throughout because January 2020 was a very different time in my life than June 2020 This review Red River Girl exceeds the character limit so I will post my uncut final update in the comments 06042020 Dreams play an important role in The Stand Survivors of the super flu dream both of holy Mother Abigail andvil Randall Flagg but where their sympathies lie determines their allegiance Like Star Wars 1977 you can choose to join the Dark Side or not Although I think King is drawing from the Book of Exodus than George Lucas La strada delle croci epic space opera it is interesting that both were released within a year ofach otherAlso interesting how Ncora tutta da combattere una lotta terna fatale tra chi ha deciso di seguire il Bene The Ballad of Dorothy Wordsworth e appoggiarsi alle fragili spalle di Mother Abagail la veggente ultracentenaria chi invece ha scelto di calcare le orme di Randall il Senza Volto il Male il Signore delle Tenebre Nel 1978 Stephen King. ,
Ivid my own dreams have been lately Since the beginning of the pandemic I ve had reoccurring nightmares All of them some variation on the same theme impending doomI dream of drowning most freuently The plot shifts but it always nds with me driving off a bridge trapped as my car slowly fills with water I beat against the glass to no avail scream until I m out of breath The water rises to my neck sometimes ntering my lungs before I finally wake in a panic This dream occurs so often I ve memorized Pretty Reckless (All Saints High, every article on the Internet about how to properlyscape a submerged vehicle Not that that makes it any less scaryOther slow deaths have infiltrated my nightly subconscious One was a complicated scenario where my living body was dumped into a heap of COVID corpses and I suffocated under their weight I woke up horrified and at the same time thinking I should write verything down The premise had a juicy E A Poe vibeI ve also dreamed of an vil man Perhaps Stephen King is to blame for this though I don t think my nightmare man is an unconscious interpretation of Randall Flagg He is a magician of some kind though with an ability to order minions to terrorize the innocent In my dream I was with a large group of friends in a park I think when his henchmen started shooting It was one of those weird dreams where you see it coming but are also taken by surprise I knew the man was The West Transformed evil and capable of such things but still felt shocked when it happenedThe worst part about these nightmares is waking up and realizing they aren t over05062020 What s life like during a pandemic I suppose people will ask years from now For me at least the staying at home part isn t bad Where there s books and Internet I m good I m stillmployed from home and taking online classes so too busy to let staying in very night be oppressiveThat said I still find myself suddenly panic stricken The smallest thing sends me a spiraling Planning a birthday party and realizing it s impossible amid a swirl of uncertainty Will I still have a job in six months Will it be safe to travel Will the next wave of virus be ven worse Will I be dead by then what about my familyOther things too Watching a movie where people happily interact can be an scape or a grim reminder that those moments were the before times times we may never see againAre my panic attacks unwarranted Probably Mostly But how can I be sureEven if we do ventually return to normal what s the long term psychological impact Can I Paper Chasers ever attend a concert or visit an amusement park without imagining a plague of death in the airThe new developments haven t been reassuring It s not just flu like symptoms the virus causes blood clots which can lead to fatal strokes The strain that s out now is severe than the original strain Maybe you get it once and you have antibodies maybe you can get it an unlimited number of times The official death toll continues to rise to terrifying numbers but they re also saying the virus could have gone global asarly as December 2019 How many COVID deaths haven t been counted Hundreds ThousandsBy the way says some government leaders we believe this virus was manufactured in a Chinese lab Great What does that mean Was China reckless Was this intentional and we have a nuclear war to look forward toOh and murder hornetsUghAnyway back to The Stand I ll admit to still reading slowly It s good Really good But I can only handle small doses at a time King is revving up to create the ultimate Good vs Evil battle Stakes of Biblical proportions I still got about 500 pages to read but I can see why people find that aspect of it appealing I m not convinced it s Top 5 King material yet but I m willing to let the adventure roll on and be convinced otherwise04162020 Future me whenever you decide to re read The Stand which I m sure you will at some point remember that the The Complete Polly and the Wolf end of Book 1 gets boring But don t give up because the adventure really starts with Book 2 There s a lot of direct homage to The Wizard of Oz like there is in The Dark Tower series Slightly cheesy I suppose but Oz is up there among the great uest novels so it s worthy And like Oz King populates his journey with unexpected characters who become close to your heart You ll fear for them and really hope they don t dieven though in the back of your mind you suspect they willHopefully you won t live to see another global pandemic but if you do don t read The Stand during it You will be tempted because it is perhaps the definitive literary achievement of pandemic stories but it won achievement of pandemic stories but it won make you feel better It will make you feel worseIf it s been 19 days since you last updated your reviewblog remember that looking back at what s happened been 19 days since you last updated your reviewblog remember that looking back at what s happened the world will be depressing For VOYAGES DE GRANDE CROISIERE example 19 days ago only 1000 Americans were documented as succumbing to the virus Now that number is 34000 and growing rapidly Globally there s been 144341 deaths These numbers include only those who were officially counted of course The world is unfair and you know that there are many who society didn t deem importantnough to be included in the statisticsOne good thing about revisiting The Stand will be recognizing that no matter how horrible your current political situations are remember that most political situations are horrible In the 1970s King imagined a president who refused to take any responsibility for the handling of a pandemic Had King s president lived long A Riesling to Die enough for the other branches of government to approve stimulus checks there s no doubt he would have demanded that those checks bear his name Situations change but people generally don tIf you are absolutely determined to re read The Stand during another pandemic remember that it s okay to take a break and read other books before coming back to it I recommend gothic romances They re a good melodramatic distraction from all the real drama swirling around03282020 The Stand did get good again I m at 35% Been reading faster than normal because I have this conspira Dear StephenI m sorry I just don t like you in that way I know we ve been friends for a long time but I just never developed those kind of feelings for youven after Pookie-Pie: A Sweet Bedtime Story eleven hundred pages I feel like we only moved forward in fits and stops and we were just never able to sustain a kind ofven handed development of the kind of chills and thrills a person really likes Shock someone nough times with snot running out of their nose and it just becomes a little meaningless And there are only so many ways to view a dead body before one gets kind of numb instead of apprehensive Using the journal device to move things forward seems a little crude when what we really need to do is talk I have to confess I ve felt kind of uncomfortable watching you struggle with religion and spirituality You sparked my interest when you posited that this might be the battle between the age of reason and that of irrationalism and the dark man was the last vestige of doomed rationalism I thought for a few minutes we were headed somewhere really special but you didn t seem very confident and the theme fell apart I will say there were a few surprises along the way which I found pleasant I appreciate you avoiding the obvious character arcs specially when it comes to redemption I was glad to meet most of your friends specially JoeLeo Stu and ven Kojak Your military friends bored me out though A Warlocks Dance (The Cursed Princes, especially Starkey I don tven get why you like spending any time with those guys Such a bunch of fossils I do have to say I was really impressed with how you must have studied disease modelling and progression I almost felt like was thereSometimes I get the feeling that you don t really see me as a person just a baby maker You ven have an xtended solilouy about it as if I wasn t My First Kitten even here reading your words It bothers me because you took the time to develop nuanced male relationships Larry Stu Lloyd but the women were about reproducing or were cannon fodder Since you allowed technology to remain I m not going to buy into your lowest most functional society mentality no matter how many sociological theories you throw at me And then there s thelderly black woman as representation of all that s spiritual Perhaps Seeds of the Spirit 2000 even Mother Earth If I m rolling myyes it s because it s another aspect of compartmentalizing women as Pin-Up either maiden matron or crone and people of color as closer to Godsbeing savage and all as you so helpfully illustrate in your The Circle Closes afterward Honestly it s kind of juvenile and a little disappointing when I know you are capable of so much It s time for me to move on I m sure you ll find someone specialventually Stephen because you are such a really great guy And so unusual tooWith Three StarsYour Friend AlwaysCross
