Going to reread The Stand. Wondering how many have linked the similarities between COVID19 and this book?
Was thinking the same. About to finish The Dark Tower series and I'm leaning towards The Stand next! Interested to read about Randall Flagg in that book!
@Jonwest12 I'm also finishing right now Full Dark, No Stars...on The Good Marriage...Kings' short stories and jumping on The Stand tomorrow morning. Can't wait. Something about The Rat Man and this being the year of the Rat in the Chinese New Year caught my attention.
I have found a few similarities like people just thinking that it’s the common cold and it’s not that dangerous in the more beginning of the book. There were also people not thinking that captain trips was even real. Obviously captain trips is way worse then the Coronavirus but I can’t help making connections between them.
Good morning @Trashcanstan , Red eyes, runny nose, phlegmy cough, fever, chills. Yeah symptoms are similar. I guess the real fear will set in if the lockdown is prolonged or measures are tightened. I have been on lockdown since March 11th, and this woman verbally attacked me in the supermarket cause i grabbed a number to be serviced at the deli counter and she didnt. And i even told her I wasnt in a hurry and she could go first. So, I'm sure people will get "uglier" as the weeks roll on by.
What do you think?
