Has this book been spoiled for me?

    The difference in page numbers has to do with the size of the book and the font choice, not the actual text of the novel.

    as long as you didn't read the bit about the butler you're okay. and don't believe the hype, he never did it.

    I had read the back, but also found a spoiler online. Sorry for the confusion. Ha!

    Everyone here is so friendly. It's just a grand surprise. Hats off to all of you.

    Hi, Love_gun. I am a recent SKMB member, and I would suggest that you read both versions. I found it really interesting to see the differences between the originally published somewhat decimated version, and then the added riches of the real unabridged version.
    I guess you will have finished the book by now, but it's worth re reading both versions. So, did you find that the spoiler had any effect on your enjoyment of the book?

    Absolutely this. One thing about The Stand is that it isn't really about the ending. The book is about the characters and what happens to them on the way.

    Why, it just so happens that Love Gun is my favorite KISS album, if for no other reason that it's the first Ace Frehley vocal on record...

    That shouldn't ruin the book for you but you'll be very sad when Delbert dies...

    chief4db When it doubt, run!

    Read the uncut version. To not read about "the kid" would b a shame and if u read the cut version you will never know about him. No it definitely doesn't ruin it bc the statement isn't exactly even correct. Have at it. Personally my 5th favorite book of his. Most constant readers will probably have it ranked even higher.

    Oh, this novel is so epic and amazing that one small line will not spoil a thing--even if it's true (and I am not saying it is).

    That's what I was going to say. It's fairly clear that the little birdie flew away!
