Spare time

I've just finished reading The Stand (Stephen King). I'd never read this book before. But with all the Anthrax scares and everything, I figured a book about plagues was pretty timely. It was great. But I'll never read another King book, unless I'm really desperate, or demented.

I was very annoyed by the fact that this was exactly the same as his other books. Same bad guy, same plot points, everything. And while I enjoyed the ideas he had on the end of the world, I don't want to feel that I've read a book except for the minor points.

i'm hoping, for your sake, that you read the abridged version? i've read both, and the complete version doesn't add anything to the story, in my opinion.

I read the long one. And I really enjoyed the characters. I just felt that I'd read it beofre and oh man was I annoyed at that!
