yes because the reading was done so well in this book, it captures the imagination very well and you don't have to carry a really big book.
I enjoyed the scenes of hearing about lee Harvey Oswald when George was watching him. Of course the play stands out as well.
I cried at a couple of parts. The Play, the reading of The janitor's story.
I just hope iit is turned into a mini series. I don't want to lose the detail from the story.

This was my fist Stephen King novel and i loved it. Story moves quickly, thought provoking.
Made impossible believable!
Superbly intricate perfection!!!
His delivery was perfect==It made me wish he could have narrated the next book I listened to!! I found myself comparing the narration of the next book to his narration!
I listen during my commute, and I didn't want to turn my car off when I got to work!!!
Imagine the concept. A decent everyman has an opportunity to fix a horrendous wrong. It seems to be an honorable thing to do, right? Mr. SK again shows us we should take a few extra looks before we leap. Our adventurer is Jake, a good but lonely man. He is an educator by profession and he willingly goes on the strange trip. It is fascinating to accompany him and wonder when the past will begin to buck its invader. The story is also filled with accurate historical nostalgia. Our modern day guy, sans cell phone, goes back to the early 1960s. Did anyone NOT smoke back then? Everything plays a role - the music of the day, the fashion, the cool cars. Does anyone else remember Howard Johnson's 28 flavors? One of King's best. He grabs the snow globe of your imagination and shakes it for 19 hours.
Maybe the VERY BEST of Stephen King. If you love 'Alternate History', grab this (Unabridged) Novel IMMEDIATELY!
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Maybe the greatest two 'Alternate History' Books ever written.
Too many to list!
The past is obturate.
If one can get past the hokey idea of a "rabbit hole" time portal, then the story is actually pretty good. Craig Wasson's talent shows with the many regional accents necessary for this audiobook. I'm not sure I'd say that this was Stephen King's best, but it isn't bad.
Time travel is a trademark of many King novels. This is another example of King's ability to have us travel through time and wonder how things might be if we could change the past. Would the world have been better or worse if J F Kennedy had not been killed?
As usual, King's typical liberal leaning political views are evident but if you can overlook those the book is entertaining.
I like cake. I don't like zombies or clowns, even if they have cake.
Craig Wasson is very talented and brings the distinct voices of the characters to the fore, making it very easy to follow who is delivering the dialog at any given time. More than that, he brings real emotion to the delivery.
Color me a fan of Craig Wasson.
King has a knack for weaving multiple storylines together without it coming across as "patchwork." While the story bogged down a bit in the second act, it picked up momentum, and the bittersweet ending was beautiful and rewarding.
I've never been a crying man, but this got a tear or two from me.
This was my first listen to a Craig Wasson reading, but it won't be my last.
I would have loved to listened to it all at once, but it is simply too long to do so. I spread it out over about 3 weeks, listening during my commute to and from work.
i would absolutely recommend this audiobook, i found it difficult to pull myself away much of the time.
his ability to switch voices and characters was impressive & entertaining.
this may be my favourite stephen king tale. however, around about the 3rd installment i found it began to lag quite a bit. sometimes king is a bit too wordy in his narrative and that isn't any different here. i did still find myself very eager to see where the story would go and how it would all turn out.
The run through Dallas on 11-22-63 is so exciting.
The variety event when Sadie turns up un expected was really moving.
This is an amazing love story streached and torn through time. Its not all about LHO. It captures the 50's & 60's well. The characters are strong and so believable. I cried. I laughed and I really enjoyed this book.
Craig Wasson is an amazing reader with so many voices. Well done.
