By Stephen King
Stephen King’s apocalyptic imaginative and prescient of an international blasted by way of plague and tangled in an elemental fight among sturdy and evil continues to be as riveting and eerily believable as while it was once first published.
A sufferer escapes from a organic checking out facility, unknowingly sporting a dangerous weapon: a mutated pressure of super-flu that might wipe out ninety nine percentage of the world’s inhabitants inside a number of weeks. those that stay are scared, bewildered, and short of a pace-setter. emerge—Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old lady who urges them to construct a calm neighborhood in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious “Dark Man,” who delights in chaos and violence. because the darkish guy and the peaceable lady assemble energy, the survivors should choose from them—and finally make a decision the destiny of all humanity.
