There are many amazing stories in the King canon...but in my humble opinion...the best one yet! Craig Wasson was a perfect George Amberson along with nailed inflections on each one of the other multiple characters throughout this story.
This novel holds the listener's interest from the first ten minutes and doesn't let go. 11-22-63 reminded me of what Stephen King does best- tell a story that you can lose yourself in. A must have for time travel fans, King followers, and modern history buffs alike. Craig Wasson puts on a one man show as narrator, keeping you in the story with his impeccable voicing of this thriller.
You don't have to be a huge fan of King to love this book, the storytelling is amazing. I was hooked after the first chapter, the writing was amazing and King blends exciting action with character building and a great story seamlessly. The book never gets boring!

Comparing the facts as history presents them with the facts as Stephen King suggests them.
The concept of a parallel universe, as described by King.
I have not listened to other performance by Wasson but I would like to. He is an excellent performer.
This book kept my undivided attention.
Unlike a lot of Stephen King's books that are full of hairy scary thrills, this was a compelling sci-fi adventure based on history.
I really liked this book, and I don't consider myself a big Stephen King fan. I loved the time travel concept, especially with it intertwined with real historical events. I found this story interesting, educational, fun and thought provoking!

Fantasy twist on a real historic event that everyone has at least some knowledge of
It is much too long for 1 sitting but I felt that I more than got my credit worth
I had never read a Stephen King novel until 11-22-63 and was a bit apprehensive at first as I thought, especially with the subject matter of this book, it would be overly political. It has its political moments of course but most of them are in keeping with the story and help flesh out the characters motives. I thoroughly enjoyed Kings exceptional scene setting descriptions which are brought to life by narrator Craig Wasson. The narrator's ability to deliver seamless dialogue between multiple characters draws you deeper and deeper into the world of ago.

Loved this book. Right up there with the best of them. Made me want to re-read IT! Stephen King is the King of Storytelling, and this was a really good story.
It was definitely a story that I didn't want to put down. I was swept away.
Although I thought Jake was a gigantic wussie sometimes, the book was fantastic. I'm usually hesitant about buying King books because he goes into so much detail (30 hours) but this book flew by.

Really spurs your imagination.
I liked how King plays with you thinking something creepy might happen...but never does.
Time Travel and the Alternate realities it creates.
Death of Sady.
Good book, but overall more odd/strange than scary. King keeps making you think he is going to go all out bonkers the whole book though.

This was a long audio book, but very worth the length. It moves fast and you don't realize how long it is. The characters are well developed. I really felt like I was in the 1960's. Not to mention the history lesson.
