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.

I would absolutely listen to 11-22-63 again, and I look forward to doing just that! Stephen King has penned a brilliant, thought-provoking story (yet again), and Craig Wasson's performance is stellar - equally brilliant.
Memorable for me in 11-22-63 is the scene in which the opening night of the high school production of
Although Wasson performs all of the characters fabulously, my favorite character in 11-22-63 has to be Jake (George). Up, down, hot, cold, mad, sad, elated, depressed, in love, etc... Jake is a complex, and dynamic character. Wasson's performance of Jake is flawless.
Ever heard of the Butterfly Effect? What if you could travel back in time to manipulate the outcome of historic, watershed moments... Would you? Should you?
I recommend 11-22-63 without hesitation, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Like The Stand a non-stop page turner.
The intermeshing of today and late '50's early 60's details in impeccable.
He consistently stays in character and does creditable JFK and even Jackie Kennedy characterizations. Sometimes though I swore I heard him chanelling Burt Lancaster in the voice of Chaz and Jimmy Stewart. Maybe that's how he visualized them.
Too bad it couldn't be
I first read The Stand in the winter of 1980--it was first published in paperback and my husband and I took turns reading it out loud to each other those cold dark days. I loved that book and have re-read it several times. The books that came later were mixed. Loved some; hated others. But 11/22/63 is wonderful. I found myself deliberately not listening to it at times so I could drag the book out and extend my enjoyment. A friend called characters you come to know
The reader is fabulous. Loved the southern and Texan drawls.
The book is good but the way Craig Wasson hooks you into the story gives this book a five star. I have trouble letting go... it is hard to press the stop button and leave the story in suspence. My hat goes off the both Stephen King and Craig Wasson because the combination off these is a pure winner. Thank you!
Yes, I can tell how good a story is by how oftern I need to rewind. I listen while I am doing tasks that require little attention. If the story is not interesting my mind wanders. i can honestly say I only had to rewind twice. considering the length of this story, that's pretty darn good.
The Stand. Another great story.
I have not, but i will look him up
A few laughs. not moved to tears, but it did bring out emotions.
This is my first review. I guess that should say something.
I usually don't get historical novels, or anything to do with them, but I am glad I tried this one. Very entertaining and worth a credit.
