A man made virus escapes from a military research lab, mutates in to a super flu that will 99% + of the infected people. The ones that survive join one of 2 Groups. The “good” guys who settle in Boulder, Colorado or the “bad” guys who settle in Las Vegas, Nevada. We are taken on a great adventure, from the gather and forming of the two societies to their inevitable clash. The conflict between good and evil that Stephen King has woven keeps your eyes glued to the page. And, since it is a “King” novel you expect, evil, demons, ESP and other assorted other things that go “bump in the night”. I really enjoyed this novel and consider it one of Stephen Kings’ best.
