The Stand “Brilliant mind bending adv.”
Gem that i read lil bit @late 90’s & the rest 6002 (2002) when moved to new city for first time. Got to know by mini-series in -96. It aired 2y earlier & the one i watched at friend’s home was uncut. My fav characters are ‘Trash Can Man‘ who’s weird, but interesting to follow & Randall Flagg. Randall bit less cause of his more awkward attit. Though still enjoy Randall’s chapters, filled with anger & evil plans to take down all good. 1st part “The Plague” which explains the coming of the terrible disease & its developments is one of my favs.
‘The Stand‘ has lot of commentary that are about tech, society, group-thoughts, individuality & choice. Also faith & of course the big subject good vs evil that’s always present among human species. I’ve read few SK books after started my reading adventures in mid -90’s. There’s a remake of telly mini-series that dec last year & is now available on Amazon Prime Video. I really liked the first one mentioned above & remake wasn’t bad either. It deserves higher rating on imdb. Good journey to everyone who dives into ‘The Stand‘ book. Not sure if that link opens to others without probs. cause it has ‘smile’ at front. It’s used for supporting charity target of your choosing. I use different target at both Amazon co uk & Amazon de.
The King’s Witch (Pt.1 of The King’s Witch Trilogy)
I bought this as ebook on earlier this year’s spring. Gonna buy second & third on next month. I’m close to midway & like for what have read so far. Has storytelling that keeps me wanting for more. Since mid july have had some relaxing late evenings spent with warm Peppermint Tea Cuppa & this Book. About main character & other things i know so far: This story takes place as King James comes from Scotland at time of Queen Elizabeth’s death. It takes you through Witch Hunt on this land & Lord Cecil’s Evil plot to try & show that Frances is a Witch. Frances had been giving ailmments to Elizabeth on her deathbed, using her herbs to give the queen some final comfort, when she is delivered an ominous warning – her queen’s successor – James, isn’t fond of Witches. Through cunning, intelligence & sharp bravery Frances manages to navigate life at court through the most dangerous of times.
The characters are so well written that i even wanted to teach manners to couple, yeah for real. Frances is a woman who practices herbalism & cause of that through history she’d be labeled as a Witch. It was totally stupid & clearly another way for men to control women on those times. I could rant about this subject, but won’t go to it now. Her guardian deity did the work as the Queen steps in & protects her, but not before some damage is done. With all this going Frances experiences good & bad sides of romantically loving other person. True to the time period, Tracy brings the story & lives of King James & his court to vibrant life. If you love history from this era that’s set about four hundred years into past then this is a book for you. History is on top three of my fav subjects since early high school. I enjoyed learning more about this time period. Tracy is accurate when comes to history set into those years. I aim to finish this book & chapter for Frances in next couple weeks & launch journey to continuation on some day next month. Good evening read that i recommend.
