By Stephen King
Stephen King’s apocalyptic imaginative and prescient of an international blasted via plague and tangled in an elemental fight among solid and evil continues to be as riveting and eerily believable as whilst it was once first published.
A sufferer escapes from a organic trying out facility, unknowingly sporting a perilous weapon: a mutated pressure of super-flu that may 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 pacesetter. emerge—Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old lady who urges them to construct a relaxed group in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious “Dark Man,” who delights in chaos and violence. because the darkish guy and the peaceable girl assemble strength, the survivors should make a choice from them—and finally come to a decision the destiny of all humanity.
