I’ve read ALMOST every Stephen King book. Not the Dark Tower stuff–too sci-fi for my taste. But I’ve always been intimidated by The Stand.
So I finally picked up a copy to read on the plane and the beach. Yikes. It hasn’t made my skin crawl yet (I’m about halfway through) but I find myself flinching every time I hear someone cough… convinced the superflu is about to have its way with me.
PS. I never finished It. I tried twice but I just got too freaking scared and had to stop reading!
