Adventurous Gripping Intriguing
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.
I am NOT a fan of Stephen King but this book was totally different from the few others of his that I've read, including The Dome which was terrible. I found this story captivating and it was well-written and the narration was good too. You'll never read a story like this one. Well done, King.
How the story kept me listening and wanting to hear more.
Takes history and creates a nice what-if scenario.
It made me think about history and the wonderful challenges of time travel.
The narrator is great! At first I thought he read a little too slowly, but by the end of the book I was thinking how much I would like to have him read my next many books.
This book is like the "old" Stephen King. More creepy, goosebumpy, and ironic, rather than blood and guts gorey. In fact, at times it was almost goody, goody two shoes. I really liked this book. Seemed like all the loose ends were tied up, and the ending had just the right amount of satisfaction. I didn't experience a draggy moment in it. Five stars, Stephen King and Craig Wasson!
Avid reader who at one time would read on average 2 -3 books a day
I tend to prefer audio to print when working or cleaning around the home. It stimulates the mind while you are doing other tasks
I liked how the plot diversed into many pasts and futures to the point where you were not even sure if opening the door was even the right idea ever.
When the main character had a conversation with the Yellow card man
When the main character realized he had found love and was going to have walk away.
A great read from beginning to end !!!
I love to listen more that read.
The imagination of Stephen King.
It is like listening to a movie without all the changes.
I am still listening, but I love going back to 1958.
I hope King never stops writhing.
