First came the virus. And then the dreams...A man escapes from a biological testing facility, unknowingly carrying a deadly weapon: a mutated strain of super-flu that will wipe out over 99 percent of the world's population within a few weeks. Those who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge - Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a peaceful community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the 'dark man', the apostate of death, the warlord of the charnel house and Prince of Evil. Now the survivors must choose between them - and ultimately decide the fate of all humanity.… (más)

    Los niños de Armagedón por Terry Brooks (lquilter)
    lquilter: Terry Brooks' Armageddon's Children is basically a YA post-apocalyptic gathering of the forces, much like Stephen King's adult-fiction version, The Stand. Brooks' AC is more high-fantasy good-versus-evil, and King's is more Christian eschatology, but both involve dark forces working towards a final show-down, in a post-apocalyptic world.… (más)

Tremendous. An epic. The hardest book to put down I've read in a long long long time. ( )
  wsampson13 | Mar 2, 2024 |
This apparently is the novel that most Stephen King fan say is their favourite. I am not sure about that, but I do know it’s an extremely good and arguably important book. It certainly one of those books that I’m glad I’ve read. This was the second time that I read it, having read it when I was in my late teenage years. I could remember little apart from parts of the final third, And it seemed like a new book.

I think with any book that’s over 1000 pages long, one gets very invested into it. That’s along with Stephen. King’s folk style means that you really feel something about the characters. This is the sort of book that a bookclub could discuss for six months.

Is it his best, it certainly very different from the normal Stephen King run. There’s no really detailed recollection and depiction of America in the 1960s or 50s, and there isn’t a professorial or author type of character living somewhere in Maine. Don’t get me wrong, turns up but it’s not like what he’s done before.

I’m not gonna leave any spoilers here, but you’ll never forget the journey that the characters make. ( )

One of the better Stephen King books I've read. I really enjoy the large casts in books like this and there was a good array of likable and unlikable characters, plus there was some decent character development. I'm definitely glad I didn't read this at the start of the pandemic - some earlier chapters would have hit far too close to home. ( )

Even better with this reread in 2022 (first read was in 1984). ( )

This was so good! I would have rated it higher if it were just a tiny bit shorter. I love Frannie and Stu, I would love to read a book just about them! ( )

Outside the street's on fire In a real death waltz Between what's flesh and what's fantasy And the poets down here Don't write nothing at all They just stand back and let it all be And in the quick of the night They reach for their moment And try to make an honest stand... -- Bruce Springsteen
...And it was clear she couldn't go on, The door was opened and the wind appeared, The candles blew and then disappeared, The curtains flew and then he appeared, Said, "Don't be afraid, Come on, Mary," And she had no fear And she ran to him And they started to fly... She had taken his hand... Come on, Mary, Don't fear the reaper... -- Blue Oyster Cult
Well the deputy walks on hard nails And the preacher rides a mount But nothing really matters much, It's doom alone that counts And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn "Come in," she said, "I'll give ya Shelter from the storm." -- Bob Dylan
