The Stand - Stephen King

Does anyone else feel like Flagg's eye searching for Mother Abagail et al. is kind of like the eye of Sauron from LotR?


Characters have met up and are traveling to Mother Abagail. At this point there are definitely characters not included in the miniseries, so I'm excited for that.


Still kinda sexist though. Twice now a man has slept with a woman and afterwards hated or been repulsed by her (Larry and Rita; Nick and Julie).


Also definitely a pro-life agenda happening with Franny's father's diatribe about abortion and Mother Abagail's outlook on birth control.
