Here’s what I want you to know about Nick Andros (from Stephen King’s The Stand). He is a deaf mute and he is also the most badass character in the entire 1,104 (at least in my copy) page novel. He’s smart, he’s kind, and he’s a good leader because while a lot of people are going around panicking he’s the one who has his shit together.
Nick Andros is the reason why I want to read more books where major, if not main, characters have disabilities but are not held back by them. While keeping limitations true to said disability I want them to overcome them in different ways and be strong and not mope around about it. I want them to be shown as actual people, too. This book is the only one that does this that I’ve found so far.
I don’t know. I have a lot of feels about Nick. He’s great. I love him.
