StandBook - 2012
A patient escapes from a biological testing facility, unknowingly carrying a deadly weapon: a mutated strain of super-flu that will wipe out 99 percent of the world's population within a few weeks. Those who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge--Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a peaceful community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious "Dark Man," who delights in chaos and violence. As the dark man and the peaceful woman gather power, the survivors will have to choose between them--and ultimately decide the fate of all humanity.

From the critics
Sexual Content: 10/10 Gay rape with a loaded pistol. Sex, cheating, abuse, sodomy, rape, oral sex, masturbation, sexual fantasies ect.. There are many sexual relationships in The Stand, some of which are messed up and strange. Some scenes are vividly described while other are very short. Don't let this discourage you from reading-- the message of the book is worth it.
Coarse Language: 10/10 Extremely strong and frequent-- Just about every swear word used on every page. Some sexual and other not.
