    Default I have a mid life confession to make...

    I am moving in on 40 (maybe not be mid life to Moses or George Burns, but it feels that way to me...ha). I've read the DT series, among many other of King's classics. However, somehow Ive managed not to read The Stand. Dunno why. Perhaps I was simply turned off by the tv movie from the 90s. I actually hated it (altho the intro part with Dont Fear the Reaper was pretty cool). Ive always been a huge Randall Flagg fan, however, so last night as I browsed the K section at the used book store, I thought to myself... "dammit Uncle Louie.. youre almost 40... buy the Stand, shut up, and just read it). Heres to hoping the book is nothing like the movie!

    Im sorry, I have had a bit of a crush on Molly since the late 80s. She was one of the few things about the movie that I actually liked. I will say though, I thought LT. Dan did a great job as Stu Redman, and the soundtrack was pretty cool. But the actors who played Nadine, Harold, Larry, and the MOON guy were just flat out annoying as hell. The muscial score was also very cheesy as well... the generic, horrible score screamed out "MADE FOR TV MOVIE" everytime you heard it.

    It's my favorite SK book so I think you will love it! Have fun.

    And after you read it I hope you will see that the casting of Bill Fagerbakke as Tom was an inspired choice. Nadine not so much.

    It is still my all time fave. So, do yourself a HUGE favor and wipe that awful TV thing from your memory. Most of all enjoy!
