A roller-coaster ride through another history.
I don't know that I cared for the ending. It was such a terrific build-up to the titular event, that the outcome was anticlimactic.
Incredible narration -- brought all the characters to life with good accents and subtle nuance.
The past isn't what it used to be.
I'm not a Stephen King fan, but the storyline caught my attention. It is interesting and keeps you listening. It had a lot of rated R language,which is not something I like to hear; but I stayed with it anyway, waiting to find out what would happen next,
Liked the narrator.
I loved the history as I grew up in the 60's.
It was better than King's "The Stand."
I thought the reader did a wonderful job. I will look for his name when making choices.
The book I makes you laugh in many areas and cheer in others.
This is my first review and I just loved this book. I don't relisten to books however I may listen to this one again
The narrator - Craig Wasson is OUTSTANDING in his ability to create different character voices! The story is typical Stephen King which means good, but that goes without saying. For those who think all King writes is "horror" be warned this is not that kind of novel. I love to see Craig Wasson go back and narrate ALL of King's work because he truly makes the listening something to eagerly look forward too!
To me the Stand and The Tommyknockers are very similar in that neither was particularly "horrific" (nor intended that way I suspect), but contained a LOT of detail and character development.
The part where Jake and Sade are on that final mission to stop Oswald is absolutely filled with suspense yet also encompasses events which one cannot help but find amusing - if not hilarious.
Yes...I even held my iPhone as I stood outside watering my lawn so I could keep going....this is hard to put down.
I would encourage anyone on the fence based on other reviews to do as I did and take the plunge. Stephen King has NEVER written a disappointing book and this one is superb!
The narrator of this book is one of the best I have heard. His ability to change his voice to reflect the characters was amazing.
This was an excellent story.
No, I appreciated the time to step away from the book and digest certain parts.
I highly recommend listening to this book on audio
Yes, I would, the narrator has done such an excellent job in bringing this book to life.
I love Stephen's use of words, when he paints the world with his words, and then easily flips the world upside down in a matter of sentences.
Jake Epping, simply because the world revolves around him. Aside from him, Harry Dunning, really feel for him.
Yes! I certainly had moments where I gasped, smiled and nearly cried, especially at the end.
I didn't want it to end. I enjoyed the little details of the 60's era. The book was exciting I couldn't wait to hear more of it. The audio reader was very good. Stephen King was excellent.
Terrific story line, great characters, engaging narration. This audiobook actually made me look forward to my drive to and from work!

The story and the characters were incredibly engaging. I really couldn't wait to hear what was going to happen next.
The characters and the circling around real world events and people.
I will get another book with Craig Wasson as narrator. His performance was really excellent.
Most books I only listen to in the car. This one I had to keep listening after my commute had ended.
