The run through Dallas on 11-22-63 is so exciting.
The variety event when Sadie turns up un expected was really moving.
This is an amazing love story streached and torn through time. Its not all about LHO. It captures the 50's & 60's well. The characters are strong and so believable. I cried. I laughed and I really enjoyed this book.
Craig Wasson is an amazing reader with so many voices. Well done.
Very good character development as always wiith S.King. The ending is one of his very best.
I liked the book and really liked the ending; but there is a logical flaw with the premise. Lot of his objective would have been accomplished as an anonomous informant to the Secret Service. He could have oulined Oswald's movements and actions so well in advance, that it's no way they wouldn't look preplanned.
Sorry, did not read the print version.
George was my favorite character
He brings the story to life for me.
11/22/63 to change the past.
I recommend this book very highly. It will bring you back in time.
Love horror, have listened to every zombie book available on audio book. Name one, and I've listened to it!
It was wonderfull!! loved every second!! I'm going to listen to this one every year...when you stomble on one of the GREAT ones...it's your lucky day!
Yes, and he is wonderfull!
Tag line? hold on, I'm Swedish...dont really know what you mean...
Yes I would. As with almost everything, if you do it more than once you will pick and learn more than the first time around. That goes for this book.
When you first start to read(hear) you kind of think you are going to be taken back in time, real history, (I was there and remember), but now the story starts to change and you finally can realize that this is science-fiction. I would/will read it again, even though I am not a King fan.
By the way, this is my wife's birthday. Happy birthday, honey.
One second after. This story is about as close to science fiction/reality as you can get.
I loved it and will read again.
None. I really liked him.
When Sadie finally got her satisfaction.
Read this book. You will not be disappointed.
Very good read!
This is the only one of Craig Wasson's Books I have ever listened to.
I didn't want to lay it down
This is a favorite of mine. I have listened to it twice in the last month! I spend most of my day driving, so this book really helped pass the time. I am not very good at writing convincing reviews but this book is really worth the money!
Interesting take on time travel, covers the moral questions without the usual preaching. Very engaging story and interesting take on a very historical moment in U.S. history with Steven King flair added in. This is not normally the type of story I read, it was recommended, and once I started listening I was hook. You wont be disappointed, this story is worth the cost of the credit.
Stephen King did a great job developing all the major characters
Craig Wasson did a great job. For me, the narrator can make or break the audible book, he did an awesome job.
Born and raised in the Charlestown section of Boston. Irish-American, music (punk rock), crime & history, or anything having to do with those are my favorite subjects.
One of my favorite new books of the past year & quickly becoming a favorite of King. I have listened to this over & over again & it still does not get old. Highly recommended!
Stephen King can write. BOY can he write!
I am neither a fan of the horror genre, nor do I really like stories which depend on supernatural elements, so I haven't read that much by King. I may have to remedy that after reading (or listening rather) to this one.
"11-22-63: A Novel" was engaging, captivating, and memorable - the kind of book that you don't want to put down. More than once, I had to fight back tears (of sorrow or joy) and I really came to care about these fictional characters.
The narrator Craig Wasson was truly outstanding. I've only listened to a handful of audiobooks thus far, and only two fiction books, but Wasson set the bar really high. He managed to make all the characters unique, and instantly recognizable, never over-the-top. At appropriate times, I could hear the emotion in his voice, and truly appreciated his skill. I hope to hear more of his work in the future.
Stop hesitating, and spend that credit on this one - you'll be glad you did.
A worthy addition to the time travel genre, and I enjoyed the history aspect of 1960's Dallas,Tx. The narration was good and did not detract from the story, which I like. And it was clever for King to suggest a less than happy ending if JFK had not been assassinated....but I found the "alternate history" if JFK survived to be too dark to be believable, and the story started to lose me at that point.
The main character was a classic "everyman" who King often puts to good use in his story telling.
Yes to a TV series or movie, with a young Tom Hanks (as per The Green Mile) as the main character.
