Where are you currently at in the book (e.g., page, chapter, description)?
I am currently on page 323 of 1153 or Chapter 36.
What are your thoughts so far?
I have not gotten very far this week because I have set the book aside for a while to finish my book club selection for our monthly meeting next week. It has been a nice break, but I am very excited to get back into the swing of The Stand because surprisingly, I miss it. Not sure what there is to miss since I'm still in the midst of Captain Trip's outbreak. And, I'm now suffering from many allergy symptoms, including a stuffy nose, coughing, sneezing, etc. I think as long as I don't get stuck in a tunnel, I will be able to keep my anxiety at a manageable level!!
What I believe I truly miss is the characters. Like I have said many times before, I believe that King has a knack for developing his characters. And, I simply miss the characters! I can't wait to continue on their journey as they travel across the states! I will be diving back in this weekend, so until next time . . .
Don't forget to follow our read-a-long conversations on Twitter at #readthestand (don't make me look like I'm talking all to myself there please!!).
And, as a reminder, here are the dates for our final check-ins:
- Saturday, May 8th
- Monday, May 17th: Wrap-Up!
