The narrator is excellent! A great storyteller. I'm on part four of the book now and don't want it to end. I am not normally a King fan, so this book was a pleasant surprise.
Stephen King outdid himself! The interweaving of the story with what I recall of that time was wonderfully done.
Way at the top. It game great fiction but at the same time gave me information on Oswald.
Great feeling about the 60's (my time)
I love all the voices and accents he can do.
At the end, when he dances with the heroine.
Trip through time.
He did a great job conveying all the characters.
In 11/22/63, Stephen King does what King does best - he tells a story that captivates and ensnares the reader. While I was listening to this book, I wanted nothing more than to continue listening to find out what was going to happen to Jake and the rest of the residents of Jodie, Texas. Would he be able to stop the Kennedy assassination? And, if he did, what changes would it make in the world? Craig Wesson did a wonderful job narrating the book.
Craig Wasson IS every person in this story. His delivery is fantastic and makes you feel you are there. There is no way I would ever have "read" the New England or Texas accents. Some things are hard to listen to but they would also be hard to read.
I've "listened" to Stephen King books before but they never kept my attention. The story line is enough to keep you interested but the flow of the events is all King. This is the the best Stephen King book I have heard or read.
"Everything tastes better"
The way he laid out the setting of the 60's. I loved the way he put u there in that time. I loved knowing those characters. It carries you somewhere you don't want to leave.
He's a good narrator. Nothing to complain about.
Feel for the step.
The only bad thing i found with this story was the futures were a let down. They were kind of weak. I understand where he was going and why it happened this way...i just wasn't feeling it. I loved living in that world of the past though. He really brought that to life! Beautiful. Something about it whispered of Lisey's story. Maybe the boys stories. The bad gunky.

I have been hum drummed by SK in the past, and thought he might have had a shift after his Trauma. But I was overwhelmed by his handling of this plot, I do not believe it could have been better written.
Craig Wasson does an outstanding job bringing to life the many voices of both the women and men in this intriguing book.
The story was well-paced, historical, clever and well written.
The description and vibrancy of the dance scene between the central characters is most memorable to me.
I cried because it was over... I could have listened to another 30 hours.
I would recommend this book.
I usually get bored with books this long, but this one was one of those you cannot put down. It was exciting intriguing and bittersweet with endless twists and turns. Enjoyed every minute of it.
From all the rave reviews, I thought this would be an all-timer audio book...it wasn't. I'm a die hard Stephen King fan. His writing and story telling held true to his well established reputation. But the book was somewhat slow at times (dare I even say tedious) and the narrator didn't have the dynamics to move it forward through those spots. Yes, there definitely is tension, suspense and an endearing love story -- but no umphhh, no panash, and none of the shoot you straight out of your chair twists that we love with King.
However as the story progresses and the characters grow, the book starts to get a hold on the reader/listener. By the end I was hanging on for dear life and wanting a great ending. King did deliver that.
