After the government’s super flu has struck and most of the population is dead, the remaining souls are caught up in an epic battle between good and evil. Let’s now begin with the review of The Stand by Stephen King.

The story of the novel starts with an army officer running away from his base. And this man carries new disease into the world making millions people to die within a month. The survivors, a distinct band drawn from all walks of life, they only have to make the choice either to take side of the forces of evil, personified in Flagg or join or take a "Stand" for good, personified by Aunt Abigail, an old shrunken black woman who has a fundamental approach to her faith. Soon all the survivors have to confront on one side or the other, and the last battle for their future destiny is set up when the major characters in the novel must take their own "Stand".

According to The Stand review, there is so much to admire about the novel. The clear thumbnail sketch with which the author populates a complete landscape with different incredible characters is quite admirable. The fan as well as people also admire the deep sense for nostalgia left behind, the way it bring down our sense of reality by presenting us a world we are aware of. The review of The Stand further reveals that many of the people also have admiration about The Stand’s flipping over to show the darkness underneath. Those who likes to know or claims the heart of American experience should read this book.

It has also been revealed that majority of the people have been deterred by the big size of this book. The book contains more than 1000 pages and at the same time it is not a quick read. However, in the early chapters some of the people discover it quite difficult to keep track of its vast list of characters. The book however, is dedicated to King's wife, Tabitha: "For my wife Tabitha: This dark chest of wonders." After reviewing The Stand, we come to know that the novel is basically about the battle of good and evil, ultimately the victory of good over evil.
