If you ever wondered: What if, I could go back and do that over agian? Let Stephen King answer that question for you in his ever-twisting, mind-blowing look at what if.
Some many sitting on the edge of your seat parts, I can't put this down till I see what happens.
I found myself tied to my tablet hours on end (6 or more) not able to turn it off. My husband came in with three and a half hours left after midnight and wouldn't let me turn it off until the last word was done. Then Stephen King starts with his epologue and we were chair bound again!!!
Even if you don't like Stephen King you will love this book! Craig Wesson made me love the character made me feel like he someone I would like to know.
Great character development.
Never wanted it to end. Missed the main character for days after finished reading. Not scarry. Good old fashion yarn. Just good storytelling.
The length and the end. He really has lost his way as a writer. He is not the Stephen King of "Christine" and "Carrie." He thinks that mass=substance. In reality mass=a lack of focus on a good, solid, page-burning story line. Instead, King resorts to pages upon pages of political commentary showcasing his liberal viewpoint...I can get that from the mouthpieces on CNN. Stick to a good story and don't think we care about your political viewpoints, Stephen. Your opinion has no more or less weight than mine. You just have a better bully-pulpit. As for his comment "it was like breaking in a new pair of shoes", next time try starting with a pair that actually fits, Stephen!
Craig did a nice job.
Everything about the relationship with Sadie and the town of Jodie. And, the dystopia ending...really?!? C'mon, Stephen, that was like you couldn't figure out how to end the book so you threw it together as an excuse for Jake to go back and do.....nothing! HUH?!?! Talk about a major let-down...
I enjoyed the book and the performer was awesome. But, like Under the Dome, I didn't like the ending. I cannot put my finger on why on both books but each time I was disappointed. Otherwise, I enjoyed the read.
Stephen King's writing was amazing...second only to the absolutely fabulous narrator.
I loved the way King combined real-life events with his master storytelling in a way that kept me listening just about everywhere -- except maybe the shower! Unbelievably wonderful!
His ability to switch from character to character and voice to voice was incredible. He brought the characters to life in a way that the written word simply couldn't.
This book evoked every emotion under the sun!
Loved it and would recommend it to anyone and everyone! Bravo!
I found out from his remarks that the end he had been planning it in the style of"Time After Time" in time travel. It works wonderfully putting you back in that era. It held me in suspense because I didn't know how he was going to end it. In the end he used an ending his son had suggested and it worked perfectly. I totally enjoyed tis book.
The ending was perfect. couldn't have come up with as good and ending if I had tried for a thousand years.
This is my first experience with Craig and I was totally enthralled as he told the story. The naration was perfect.
I wouldn't make a film of this book because so much would need to be left out. In itself it is perfection.
book to be savored in its entirity.

The difference between audio and print is only in the physical aspects of holding a book and reading to yourself, but your time must be dedicated. Whereas an audio version allows you to do other things at the same time.
Many of Stephen King's other novels have unusual and sometimes far-fetched concepts, made plausible by the writer. The most recent might be The Dome.
If you could alter one event that changed your life, what would it be?
I always like the unabridged because I don't want to miss out on anything a favorite author might say.
There are many amazing stories in the King canon...but in my humble opinion...the best one yet! Craig Wasson was a perfect George Amberson along with nailed inflections on each one of the other multiple characters throughout this story.
This novel holds the listener's interest from the first ten minutes and doesn't let go. 11-22-63 reminded me of what Stephen King does best- tell a story that you can lose yourself in. A must have for time travel fans, King followers, and modern history buffs alike. Craig Wasson puts on a one man show as narrator, keeping you in the story with his impeccable voicing of this thriller.
