    Puls von Stephen King (jman14)
    jman14: It has been said that Cell is somewhat of a 're-make' of The Stand. It's a good book in my opinion, but The Stand is at least three times better. Good for anyone who likes their gory Apocalypses.

There's too much to say, too many things already said about this one, especially because it's one of my favorites. This is a re-read, but it's been quite some time in between readings, and a real pandemic. What struck me this time were the early references that Uncle Stevie eventually returns to with [The Dark Tower] series - keys and doors and centenarian spiritual leaders and epic treks and good vs. evil. It's terribly interesting how much of this was already swirling in his mind. He wrote [The Gunslinger] early in his writing career but it wasn't published, and this book seems to have helped germinate a lot of what ended up in the series. It stands the test of time in re-reading (pun intended). M-O-O-N, that spells read this. ( )

I had been thinking about reading this for years. It is such an iconic book with big themes like the sacrifice of the individual for the greater good of the group and hierarchy in society, but especially the theme of good vs. evil. There were representations for Christ and the Anti-Christ who seek to gain control over this new emerging society. Big, bold ideas. It should have been enthralling, but I was quite bored for the whole first half of the book, and with a 1400 page book - that is a lot of boredom. Things got more interesting in the second half as the survivors begin to re-build society and I was into it by the very end. I'm glad that I took the time to read it but it didn't rock my world at all and I can't even say I would recommend it. Great idea but lacking punch. ( )

I've been a King fan since middle school and I love to go back and re-read his fiction. This book is a typical examination of the forces of good & evil in the aftermath of a man-made apocalypse. My observation during this reading is that I didn't remember this book having so many capital G god references. That's not ever been my thing and it's interesting to me that in all my past readings I've managed to subconsciously skirt right past that. Other than that - if you're a King fan, you'll love it and all the Dark Tower references...he wrote the Dark Tower so many times before he wrote the Dark Tower! If you're not a King fan and you're not a swift reader, I'd suggest starting out with one of his shorter books and working your way up to this heavy tome. ( )

Yes this is an amazing story but I must confess that I got about half way through (600 pages or so) and had to abandon it because frankly it was too on the money with what we are living through now. The description of the sickness and how it spread was terrifying and very similar to COVID 19. I will probably finish it because it is that good but I am going to guess sometime after the hysteria around our current pandemic winds down a bit. ( )

In short (well, not so short), this is the book that has everything - adventure, romance, prophecy, allegory, satire, fantasy, realism, apocalypse, etc., etc. Even Roger Rabbit gets mentioned. ''The Stand'' does have some great moments and some great lines... But the overall effect is more oppressive than imposing.

We need help, the Poet reckoned.
--Edward Dorn
Outside the street's on fire In a real death waltz Between what's flesh and what's fantasy And the poets down here Don't write nothing at all They just stand back and let it all be And in the quick of the night They reach for their moment And try to make an honest stand... -- Bruce Springsteen
...And it was clear she couldn't go on, The door was opened and the wind appeared, The candles blew and then disappeared, The curtains flew and then he appeared, Said, "Don't be afraid, Come on, Mary," And she had no fear And she ran to him And they started to fly... She had taken his hand... Come on, Mary, Don't fear the reaper... -- Blue Oyster Cult
Well the deputy walks on hard nails And the preacher rides a mount But nothing really matters much, It's doom alone that counts And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn "Come in," she said, "I'll give ya Shelter from the storm." -- Bob Dylan
