The narrator, Craig Wasson, did an excellent job with several voices and accents and really did an overall nice acting job. I will look for more books that he has narrated because he is top notch. I definitely think my enjoyment of this book in audio format is higher than it would have been if I read the print version. I was also able to get through it quicker, as I listened to it on my iPod when walking about town, working out, etc, and I didn't want to put it down!
The beginning drew me in and it was difficult to put down. I also really enjoyed the ending... I wasn't sure how the story would get resolved and I was very satisfied with the ending.
No, I haven't, but I definitely will going forward.
I think it was a pretty light
I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for an entertaining read (or
Absolutely enjoyed this book, it brought back so many memories, good & bad, I was a teen when this happened and I can still remember it like it was a week ago. It was a history book, a fiction book, a reality book and a love story all in one. It was nice and long and I didn't get bored for a moment.
Listening to Mr. King at the end of the book was also very good, got his views and some really good recommendations of other books to read on JFK both true and fiction.
If you think that Mr. King just writes horror stories you will be surprised by this book, it's not scary, it's really good, give it a try I promise you'll love it and when your done listening you will go and read up on more facts about that horrible day.
Not enough SK's specials effects
Way too many facts and way too little SK's Mind!
Was Just Fine
Too Many that I would cut!
A Disappointment for a SK work. It would have been a better short story!

The story was disjointed and filled with excessive uninteresting material. One example of being disjointed: after all the references to his ex... there should have been some followup about her. It would have been so interesting and so real! He even called his new girlfriend by her name accidentally once (who hasn't been there!?) - there should have been some effort to close that loop. For 30 hours of lightweight extended people descriptions, I found I never developed any connection to the protagonist or his friends, except for Al and the janitor. I kept wondering, if the protagonist were deleted, would I care? No. What kept me listening was the time travel part, which is tough to carry off convincingly but quite riveting. The one feature of this book that sent (and still sends) my mind into a reverie of pleasure is the
Time travel and the references to life in the 60's.
The narrator was amazing in the number of voices and accents he can do! I continually shook my head in amusement about his radical voice switches. My one complaint was that he made the protagonist sound like a wimp. The namby pamby tone didn't match the words often, because the guy could be pretty manly and aggressive.
Yes, that's probably why he wrote it in this fluff lightweight way. Perfect for a 2 hour movie or tv series.
Very good story, really enjoyed going back in time to the early 60's. Craig Wasson did a very good job with the narration.
The characters really drew me in.
Knowing that it was a King novel I couldn't say of course the characters will do what I expect and I knew it would end differently than I expected.
Stephen King really made you relive the late 50's early sixties and by listening to the audio book versus reading it, I really felt
I could not put this listen down. There is so much more here than just the Kennedy assasination - I felt like I was back in 1958 and not sure I wanted the book to come back to the present. I agree with one reader who said that he wishes he hadn't given out some other 5 star reviews because, compared to this, they didnt quite measure up. Craig Wasson's narration is great as well. Perhaps a movie in the making?
