These are two of my favorite books. Both deal with the end of the world. But I am not a ‘downer’ type of person. I still enjoyed both of these books.
THE STAND by Stephen King is over 1,000 pages and comes in near 500,000 words.
THE ROAD by Cormac McCarthy is about 300 pages and comes in at 200,000 words.
Both powerful, both a similar message, but very different is length.
