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.
one of the best books i've ever read (listened to)....the story was entertaining and educational...i found myself really caring about some of the characters and really disliking some...i can not praise it enough...
Stephen King fans won't be disappointed by this audible book selection. The print version was a little slow at times, but the audio version kept up its pace.
The details to the past must be correct because people remember. The story was good, and the ending was quite unexpected.
I did not expect to listen to this in one sitting. It was much too long.
Stephen King has done it again! This wasn't your typical King book, but at the same time it was a typical King book. Not as much gore as some, but oh so much suspense! You will NEVER see the ending coming, fantastic twist that leaves you satisfied. Highly recommend this book!
Craig Wasson has an amazing voice. It was easy to listen to and he used just the right amount of inflection and emotion in his reading. Very well done.
Educator for 40 years. Teacher of children with disabilities. Now an administrator. Love to listen to books during 45 minute drive time.
Poor JFK. That poor man has been murdered over and over again in the press, in the Warren Report, in books, articles, newspapers, etc. Each author has a different spin and different selling point. Stephen King is no different. Just when you thought no new spins on the same story/theory, Mr. King comes out with another. I'm glad for that. It was a good story, even if the content was familiar. I didn't think I'd like it, but I did. Mr. King has been a popular writer for a long time and with good reason. He can spin a good tale. If you have more than a day, listen. You'll find yourself wanting to put those earplugs in your ear to find out what happens next.
Keeps you in suspense.
King is usually very bloody. But,I loved the idea that we could change history. But, there's a twist... "If we could, should we?".
It's a little like a Crighton story, but, more historically correct.
This and Gerald's Game are my favorite King novels!
