The Stand almost defies classification. While it is certainly a horror story in the sense that frightening events and supernatural powers are depicted, it also qualifies clearly as science fiction. Stand by Me (, by Ben E. King) is played when the credits roll at the end of the movie. In addition, the boys themselves sing Sorry (I Ran All the Way Home (, by the Impalas) while sitting in their clubhouse and The Ballad of Paladin, the theme song from the TV series Have Gun - Will Travel () while walking along the.

The few survivors, united in groups, establish a new social system and engage in confrontation with each : Stephen King. The Stand is a book that has sat on my bookshelf for years, untouched and waiting for that day when I'm ready to tackle it.

The Stand Abridged: 5 Stars The Stand Unabridged: to 4 Stars I hope that Goodreads lets both of my star ratings of this book go through as I already rated The The Stand-By book Abridged years ago, but in case it doesn’t, I am combining my review of the two into one/5(K).

This thoughtful book thus not only elevates the virtue of godly endurance but bears witness to its power in the Christian life through the exhortations of John Piper, John MacArthur, Jerry Bridges, Randy Alcorn, and Helen Roseveare.

"[The Stand] has everything. Adventure. Roman. Prophecy. Allegory. Satire. Fantasy. Realism. Apocalypse. Great!"—The New York Times Book Review "As brilliant a dark dream as has ever been dreamed in this century."—Palm Beach Post.

From the Publisher/5(K). Striking a far less hysterical tone than in The Shining, King has written his most sweeping horror novel in The Stand, though it may lack the spinal jingles of Salem's Lot. In part this is because The Stand, with its flow of hundreds of brand-name products, is a kind of inventory of American culture.
