I kept putting off reading this book because of it's size, but *WOW* what a read it was! This was one of those books that pulled me in from the very beginning and I did not want to put it down - I even lost sleep wanting to read into the wee hours of the night. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would highly recommend it.

Took me a while to start this book, I was intimidated by the size. But when I started it, the exciting story swept me right in!

Part I deals with the immediate aftermath of a nuclear holocaust in the United States, and Part II continues, seven years later, with the rebirth of hope.

Highly recommended.

In a word- epic. This is one of the best books I've ever read. It's a post apocalyptic masterpiece. The characters are unforgettable. The plot is fascinating. It's horrifying and bleak and desolate yet uplifting and beautiful at the same time. To mention 'The Stand' and 'Swan Song' in the same sentence is laughable and insulting. 'Swan Song' absolutely blows 'The Stand' out of the water.

This book is a keeper! I have gone through several of the paperbacks over the years, rereading it, recommending and loaning it and finally would just like to find one in hardback to keep forever!

If you are a fan of The Stand, this may be a book you would enjoy. A Good and Evil story, end of the world/apocolypse/life-as-you-know-it is over story. One of my all time favorite books!

This book was recommended to me based on the fact that I liked Stephen King's The Stand. It was readable, but went on a little too long for me with its 956 pages. I just wasn't engrossed in the reading. It was a lot like The Stand, but the horror genre is really not one I'm too fond of. I do know people who LOVED Swan Song, so don't let my review keep you from reading it.
