Oddly, enough. The Yellow Card Man. I haven't completed the book yet, only on the second download, but I find him fascinating. He seems to know something is up.
I found this book surprisingly interesting. I'm not a real history buff but I found this title attractive and downloaded on a whim. I found myself instantly submersed in the late fifties and I enjoyed the storyline so far. It's worth every penny I've paid, but I do not list this as a horror writing of King's. Fascinating, nonetheless.
I already have. It's really long, yet you don't want it to end. It has everything, romance, adventure, intrigue. I did not want to read another nostalgic Kennedy story, so I was skeptical, but it's not that at all - just a brilliant story.
The details of life in the 50's and 60's, the brain twister of any length of time in one plane being only 2 minutes in another and yet your body ages according to which plane you're in, only Stephen King comes up with this stuff.
George, great job with the voices though. It was clear but not distracting.
Beautifully constructed from beginning to bittersweet end. Perfectly narrated! I couldn't wait to get in the car and drive. I'd take longer routes and even circle the block an extra time! King offers us an insightful and thrilling "what if" around the assassination of J.F.K. What would you do if you could go back and change things? And, what are the consequences of changing things? I think it's one of King's masterpieces.
Craig Wasson's Brilliant and dramatic reading of this book has left me stunned. I can't imagine having missed out on this now that I've listened to it. This was by far the best audiobook I've ever listened to, and quite possibly the best I ever will. It's going to be a real job finding one better than this. I just hope I'm not spoiled.
The details and emotional effects of time travel. I had a real emotional investment in these characters.
His awe at the past when he was first got there and his longing to remain there.
STAY HOME AND LISTEN TO THE AUDIO BOOK. Seriously, they can NOT make a movie out of this story. They could never come close to doing it justice. I've read a lot of Stephen King's books, and watched a lot of the movies from his books, and as much as the books are always better, this particular one would be the biggest disappointment if it were botched by hollywood.
Listen to this book, it might change your life.
The narrator used all the correct dialect and made you feel you within the walls of the main character,
Since having kids - the luxury of sitting down and reading a book is out of the question. Now I can put on good book for just me, or one for the kids while driving and everyone is at PEACE and no one is YELLING. Life is good.
It's up there in the top 5 books.
I loved the action and reaction aspects. Everything you touch, say, do - every action has a reaction. What if you decided to wait 5 minutes? I think every single person has a point in their life where they think, "If I could only go back and change this one thing in time.."
If you like thinking about the possibilities of time travel, and you have an interest in history, even a small interest, you will love this book. I was never much of a reader before audible came around, but since then I've listened to my fair share of books, and this one is really good. I had to have my headset surgically removed... not really, but you get the point. This book is 30+ hours long and I finished it in about 4 days. That doesn't sound like much until you consider that I work full time, and I'm in the final weeks of finishing a masters degree. This book stole priority from my other tasks, and it was all I could do to not sit on the porch and just listen. I had to limit my listening to when I was driving, or when I should have been sleeping. Awesome... just awesome... A great diversion and totally worth the time investment.
Extremely clever. Worked the idea of time travel to a tee. King obviously is an experienced and gifted story teller. Very, VERY much enjoyed Wasson on this.
First I should preface by saying that I've been a King fan for many years. I think he's one of the best story tellers of our generation. There's a difference in my mind of having a good story and telling it well. Fortunately, this book does both. The story is innovative falling under the Sci-fi spectrum of King's writing. I've felt that much of his writing was in a slump over the last 10 years, but this is King back on his A-game. Craig Wasson narrates the story beautifully, allowing me to lose myself in the story. Highly recommended.
