Number 16: Read a Stephen Kind novel

It took about 6 weeks, but I was finally able to finish reading The Stand by Stephen King.  I asked many people for suggestions on which Stephen King book I should read and there were many people who suggested The Stand.  I really enjoyed reading the book and thought that King's writing style was very interesting.  It was a very long novel, but very engaging.  Some people would say that the book was slow and that it did not have very much action.  The foundation of the book definitely focuses on character development and the action happens subtly between the characters.  There really is no major, outright action.  The action is based on the interactions between characters and the core struggle of every human being to decide where they STAND.
