I found the story interesting and the trip through history to be thought provoking but there was just too many sideline stories that were irrelevant to the main story. Eventually all the deviations from the main story became a bore and waste of time. In fact, I skipped a big portion of part 2 and, in the end, found that I really didn't miss a thing.
Yes, I like Stephen King but I do find that his books generally contain much more detail than is necessary. It's almost as if he spends a lot of time researching and then has to include every bit of it in his books rather than just that which is relevant.
Unlike other reviewers, I wasn't wild about the narrator either ---- he just sounded like he was completely exhausted. Made for a tiring listen!
Yes, interesting story line/concept and enjoyed the trip thru history.
Great Read! I am so sorry it is over. I have listened to a few books since this one, and I find myself thinking about 11-22-63. Thank you Stephen King!
Sadie was my favorite. I loved her get to the point attitude.
Harry, hands down. I thought he did such a great job performing his voice. I felt as if I could see him in my mind from the description and the performance.
I listened every free moment I had. If I could have sacrificed the time, I would have tried to listen to the entire audiobook in one sitting.
I have always had a hard time reading Stephen King, but this book was so gripping and the performance was excellent.
I didn't want to get this book as I don't like fantasy novels. All I can say is that it was well worth it. I really enjoyed the historical details and the character development aspects of this stoy. It was exceptionally researched and it shows. I have listened to many audio books and this is definitely in the top 10% If you like history but don't normally go for sci-fi, I would say try it.
This book is in my top 10 list of audible books.
Yes, this book was hard to put down.
Several subplots stung together as only Stphen King can . Bringing it to an unforgetable conclusion.
engrossing, nostalgic, entertaining
Jake, unwilling hero.
his tone, inflection and emotion made the book so enjoyable.
I was born in 1951 and as an Irish Catholic 20 miles north of Boston the Kennedy era was a very big part of my life. Reading this brought back many memories yet at the same time really made you think.
While the story was thrilling, it was unfortunate that Mr. King writes with such vulgarity. At the onset of the use of the F word, I was shocked at hearing it spoken from my Kindle and grateful that my grandson, son and husband were not within hearing distance. It spite of his dramatic reading and his variance of character voices, Mr. Wasson's performance was ruined and trashy because of the use of so much foul language. I even contacted Amazon to find out if there was a downloadable app to remove such language from being spoken...so much for parental controls; there is none. Someone might get rich by developing one such app.
I finished this wonderful book with many tears. Most of my favorite Stephen King books are from his earlier books. However, this is an awesome book! Not only is this a work of amazing science fiction/horror, it is a beautiful, tender love story. It was hard to pull myself away from it long enough to recharge my iPod. Stephen King, you rock! :)
The narrator did an excellent job portraying the different characters and conveying the terror and the sweetness in his voice!
Well done! Let's dance! :)
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. However, I would warn that there is some language and sexual content. Not a book for children. It is a wonderful listen though.
There are many and I hate to give a way plot. The concept of selling things taken from the past in the present was something I didn't think of. I always have thought about going back not bringing forward.
Too many to list. If I had to pick one I guess it would be the attempt to stop the Kennedy assassination.
If you could travel back to stop the Kennedy assassination, would you do it?
This was a great listen many hours of enjoyable audio keeping you on the edge of your seat!
