I am usually NOT a Stephen King fan. (Not for his work, but the content usually not my breed of book.) I was AMAZED to finally have a work of fiction I could read/listen to by him. S. King is an AMAZING author!! I totally l-o-v-e-d this book. The concept of time travel with consequence. Time travel with Coincidence. Well done!!
OF COURSE--KEEPS YOU SO INTRIGUED YOU CAN'T STOP.
NOTHING EXTREME--JUST PURE ENJOYMENT.
A STORY OF EXTREME LOVE--DEVOTION & DETERMINATION. A MUST LISTEN!
A great work of fiction interweaving a fair amount of non fiction surrounding the Kennedy assasination. The story line is both plausable and reasonably fast paced for a long book. I had never done a King novel and this was recommended correctly to me as a virgin.
Outside of the time travel element which makes it a King novel, it has a Baldacci flair to in for the sojourn of the protagonist who you know will win in the end, but dang it is an uphill battle.
Any of the Maine characters were sensational. Wasson's narration is among the best I have ever heard remarkably imitating countless regional and international accents.
Right at the end the final section, changed evidently by King at his son's suggestion, worked very well.
Couldn't stop listening!
Mr. Wasson's performance was outstanding. He took his time and read with feeling as well as created different voices for each of the characters.
At times it made me cry.
This was my first Audiobook as well as my first Stephen King book. I listened to this every free minute I had. The book has an intriguing premise and the performance pushed it over the top for a very enjoyable listen.
One of the best. What surprised me most was that it was a love story above all. A little different from other Stephen King stories but just as excellent.
The fight scene. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. And also the very last scene. Very emotional.
Excellent narration. It took me a few chapters to get into it but the narrator really brought the characters to life. A terrific story.
I listened to this book at the same time my son was listening to it, so we compared our impressions. He was more critical of the ending and thought he could have (NO SPOILERS) done a better job. I, however, was not bothered by the ending.
I love Stephen King, but do not like Horror novels, so only read his books that are out of his main genre.
This is a nice "What if?" book. I love to read books the leave me pondering what I would do if I were in this situation.
Long book. You certainly get your money's worth.
This is a10 all the way. From the first page to the last. "I'm not a crying man" but several parts did bring a tear. Powerful and intoxicating. King can often get too wrapped up in character development and I sometimes feel 3 or 4 hundred pages could have been left out. Not in 11-22-63 the story moved fast I couldn't stop. Loved the way he tied IT and Derry,Maine into the story. Great ending I loved it... Better than: Under the Dome, Dream Catcher and Cell. All of which are great works.
The way Craig Wasson narration brought the characters to life was remarkable. I would like to hear more from him. Great job all around
Yes, I would recommend this book because it was a story that suprised you and enticed your very imagination.
Probably the scene when he returns to the small town.
I am not a Stephen King fan this was my very first book from him. I chose this book because of my interest in JFK, no other reason. I normally look the other way when it comes to King books and movies but I am very very glad I chose to read this one.
This is really the best book I can remember listening to in a long time.
A great listen. The books I've listened to since pale by comparison. Stephen King is the master of both nuance and detail. The year 1963 is painted so vividly, the characters are so thoroughly developed. It's a book about changing events,but it is also a timeless love story. One of favorite books of all time.
