In order to review as many books as possible without stressing ourselves out, these super mini- tweet style reviews are going to help balance our other review styles. All our Short and Tweet reviews will be 140 characters or less (except when they are a bit longer). Thanks to Tif from Tif Talks Books for the idea!
The Stand is one of my all time favorites (King or otherwise) and I’m really loving the graphic novels! This second volume deals with the immediate aftermath of the plague, as the survivors are slowly being drawn to either Flagg or Mother Abigail, and the start of their journeys (including Larry’s terrifying trip through the Lincoln tunnel- full of dead bodies and cars).
