        Book Talk - The Stand - book vs movie - I saw The Stand on TV when it first came out, but missed parts and didn't get to see the whole thing straight through, so I didn't really remember much. I just finished reading the book a week ago, it took me about 3 weeks (off an on) to read but I loved it. I bought the DVD for. Stand the Storm A Novel (Book): Clarke, Breena: Even though Annie Coats and her son have managed to buy their freedom, their lives are still marked by constant struggle and sacrifice. Washington's Georgetown neighbourhood is supposed to be a 'promised land' for former slaves but is effectively a frontier town, gritty and dangerous, with no laws protecting black people.

      A photographer stands all alone in the desert. Racing toward him is Bruce Springsteen in a convertible — and the deep darkness of a massive thunderstorm. The towering cumulonimbus cloud darkens.   The remarkable emotional energy with which the Coatses wage their daily battles-as they negotiate with their former owner, as they assist escaped slaves en route to freedom, as they prepare for the encroaching war, and as they strive to love each other enough-is what propels Stand the Storm and makes the novel's tragic denouement so : Breena Clarke.
