Fiction • 48 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1978

Narrating a King novel is no small feat, especially when that novel is as massive and filled with characters as THE STAND. Grover Gardner is up to the task. While the geographical scope of the story presents the opportunity for many accents, Gardner keeps his characters' voices subtle yet unique and is not heavy-handed with regional dialects. While aiming for the effect of a full cast, Gardner has a narrator's voice you can listen to for hours. Moreover, through pace and inflection he clearly conveys King’s penchant for the terrifying as well as the macabre humor that peppers his post-apocalyptic world. Whether this audiobook is your introduction to King or you're revisiting an old favorite, Gardner's reading makes it a must-listen. S.B.A. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2012]
