This is the first week of King’s March, and I really haven’t been very successful in getting very far in my reread of The Stand. The first time I read this book, I couldn’t put it down, but this time life is getting in the way. A very sick boy was home for two days, three storms (which equal 3 migraines for me), computer issues, and a stolen wallet and the ensuing mayhem of canceling and replacing everything has done me in!
I have been successful in getting my husband to start the audio version of The Stand too, and he seems to be enjoying it- or at least being smart enough not to trash a book I love. I am still in the early stages and am looking forward to getting away this weekend for some serious skiing and reading, with some wine thrown in too.
My favorite pastime while reading this book is imagining the cast for the new version that is supposed to be in the works. I heard a rumor that has Matthew McConaughey as Randall Flagg. What do you think? Any other casting suggestions?
