The Stand Audiobook Overview
You know what’s really scary?
Getting sick while you’re listening to the first part of Stephen King – The Stand Audiobook. Just try running a fever, going through a box of tissues and guzzling the better part of a bottle of NyQuil while Stephen King describes the grisly deaths of almost everyone on Earth from a superflu.
On top of feeling like crap, you’ll be terrified. Bonus!
The Stand Audiobook is a post-apocalyptic horror/fantasy novel by American author Stephen King. It expands upon the scenario of his earlier short story “Night Surf” and outlines the total breakdown of society after the accidental release of a strain of influenza that had been modified for biological warfare causes an apocalyptic pandemic, which kills off over 99% of the world’s human population.
King dedicated the book to his wife, Tabitha: “For Tabby: This dark chest of wonders.”
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.
The best post-apocalyptic audiobook ever?
Maybe, that is a broad category teaming with great work from talented writers, but King’s The Stand Audiobook Mp3 is epic, genre-defining work.
This is also an American epic and in its context an American eulogy. 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 even Rod McKuen.
The series of events are told so well and the voices used by the same person are incredible. Massive thanks to SK for writing this epic and for selecting GG as the narrator.
