I didn't want to stop listening to it.
Sadie and Jake's relationship.
No. I loved his narration!
Yes, but way too long.
I have never been a reader. I LOVE AUDIO. 1st Stephen King book I have ever listened to. I will listen to more.
Fantastic story plot!
Mr. A and Sadie
He was great. Couldn't think anyone could have done better.
Not any one part. One of my favorite King novels
Well researched and well written, I believe King has outdone himself on this one. The plot line has elements of love, hate, hope, and despair, and enough intrigue to keep me listening when I would have put others aside. Being an avid Audible member since 2003, this is no minor accolade. I've always been a fan of time travel stories and "the butterfly effect," and this novel is a welcome addition to the sub genre. What makes the story even more compelling is an excellent narration by Craig Wasson. If you enjoy the likes of Stephen Webber, Ron McLarty, Frank Muller, and Scott Brick, add Craig to the list of those with an uncanny ability to enhance an already great story.
Can there be any better pasttime than reading? Audiobook, regular book, e-book - I have 1 of each going at all times.
I've read or listened to many Stephen King books. This is one of his best stories. The characters, the well-researched history, the vehicle of the "rabbit hole" were all expertly wound together in a way that wouldn't let me stop listening. I don't often choose a book this long for listening, but time went by too fast and I found myself wishing for more. I only finished the story a short while ago, and already I miss Jake and Sadie. I am still pondering the lessons learned about the possibilities of time travel.
The narrator was superb. His varied voices helped the story along in just the right way, never interfering with or upstaging the action. Mr. Wasson is a very talented man.
Well done, Mr. King!
When I heard that Stephen King was tackling the JFK assassination, I could not wait for the book's release. It did not quite match my expectations, but then again my expectations for Stephen King are quite high. The story and character development were great and, as always, you care about the characters he creates. I take off one star only for the ending. There may have been no good way to bring the story to a close, but the unexplained mystical time streams were confusing and did not do justice to the rest of the book. That said, it's Stephen King, and there isn't a better way to spend a credit.
Since anything King touches becomes a best seller, why mess with the golden egg?
I think thats the attitude his publisher has taken for the last 30 years. His first several books were tight and polished. 11/22/63 on the other hand goes on and on. It could have benefited by getting several hundred plodding pages chopped out.
Over all, this was an interesting idea, some passages were very well written, and King as usual shined through here and there. But in the end, it just was boring.
A great read. King does an incredible job of weaving fact and fiction together to make a very compelling story. His attention to detail helps the reader really feel and taste what living in the late 1950's and early 1960's must have felt like (I was only a child during that period).
This book filled in many of my own personal holes related to the Kennedy assassination. Occams razor aside, I still don't understand the "magic bullet" anymore than I did before the read, but the background information presented helped explain many of the missing pieces for me.
I also really enjoyed Mr. Kings closing statements about Jack Ruby. That also explained a lot to me.
As an avid dancer myself, I certainly understand that "dancing is life". I hope that Stephen keeps dancing. I certainly will enjoy future listens.
Thanks Mr. King!!
The words obdurate and harmonic are overused.
Interesting, but I was so ready to be done already.....
A good listen
I loved King's attention to the smallest details for the 1960's era.
Mr. Wasson kept me interested and wanting more
Not necessarily, but it certainly kept me coming back for more
Definitely yes. You dont want to stop listening. Craig Wasson is the best and the idea for the book is genius.
The idea to be back in time and observe Lee Harvey Oswald is a good one.
When Jake see Lee Harvey Oswald on the sixt floor, aiming his rifle at JFK...Wow !
