I was moved to tears at the end, which surprised me. I listened to just that chapter on another occasion with the same effect. This bittersweet fantasy of Stephen King's was a very satisfying story, especially for those of us who lived through the JFK assassination and Oswald's live murder on TV. The time in Derry was horrific, in Jodie, was idyllic, and Dallas depressing. Craig Wasson was absolutely masterful, one of the best narrators I've heard. His portrayal of tender emotions as well as grief came through. This is only my second King novel , after Under the Dome, but this one surpasses that in its scope and portraying the gamut of human emotions. I had been afraid to read Mr. King's work, not being an aficionado of terror. I see now why his fans are legion, as he creates a world that draws you in and affects you deeply.
Fabulous writing...I'm a confirmed King fan from here on. Time travel is a genre that often gets ridiculous very quickly, but King's treatment is so engaging...a cliff hanger even as we all know the outcome. That must take formidable skill.
makes you think.
the main charater is of course a natural choice.
very good kept your attention.
can't sit still that long. but looked forward to my book time.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. King made me love the characters which is his greatest strength. The characters were strong and vulnerable, smart and foolish, loving and funny. I wanted it to last longer.

This one is for the King fans that's can't always handle his more violent/horror type works. A lovely book that has everything a good fiction novel needs.
Kings depiction of love and relationships is amazingly real in this book. I'm glad he was brave enough to depict it.
Craig Wasson, whose performance I'm not always happy with, did a wonderful job.
I still have a couple of hours to go and am already grieving it's end. Reader - fabulous. Story - fabulous. Length - fabulous. Stephen King - fabulous.
Loved them all - but really, how can you beat Ms. Mimi?
I caught myself believing it. I kept saying out loud - oh no!
I'm an a I'd knitter and I love listening to books while I craft.
This is the king at his very best. Loved the story so much I listened twice in a row!
The ending was beautiful and very satisfactory unlike some other Stephen king books
A little long for that but I would if I could!
Yes. I've been a Stephen King fan since Carrie first came out, and although lately some of his work has been uneven, he's in the groove with this novel. The last I saw of Craig Wasson was in
Most interesting was the time travel aspect concerning the Butterfly Effect, and how changing one action would affect history. Can't think of anything uninteresting.
Not through with the novel yet. I'll let you know.
I was 13 in junior high school, back in Long Island, New York. The school tough guy came into the library where I was studying, looking uncharacteristically rattled, and told me,
King's 11-23-63 is more heart than horror. He's done love story's in his novels before, but never made one the cohesive center of the book. The novel moves well until the end of the 2nd act, where you can tell King didn't quite want to put his character into the middle of the very emotionally harsh 3rd act that was to come.
Great story, great voice acting from Wasson. You won't be disappointed.
