I have listened to almost 100 Audible Books over the past 3 years. This is without a doubt the best one yet. I have never been a big Stephen King fan, but the combination of history and supernatural was a hit. I also can't say enough about the narration. Excellent job.
This story and narration kept me listening from beginning to end. Carig Wasson's dramatization of the characters only enhanced the experience. I was disappointed with the story having to end.
I read a lot and on most any subject!
I highly recommend this book. King pulls you right into the middle of the story and goes into great detail describing what life in the early 60s was like. This is one of those books, that although long, you can not put down!
You don't have to be a King fan to read this. I promise it will hook you from the beginning. A great story and a bunch of interesting historical and philosophical questions.
What would have happened if? And how was America back then? Why are we now what we are?
Entertaining and profound, with a wonderful narrator.
He was energetic and dramatic all the way through! He never overacted. He was so good, I forgot what he sounded like and listened to what he was saying: a sign of a great reader.
I could not put this one down, so to speak. Stephen King got me hooked after the first 5 minutes of listening. There is so much about this story that is fantastic, twisted at times, and suspensful. He seamlessly sticthed in a love story too, which is a tear jerker. A word of warning, however, as this book does contaiin strong language throughout and some sex scenes described in some detail, almost uncomfortably.
What a unique story. I'm always amazed by Mr. King's imagination and his stories are so wonderful that they stay with you well after they're finished.
Stephen King writes this book with such skill and imagination that even with the length, I was sad to leave the characters. With that said, the story was brought together in ways that were wonderful, thought provoking and beautiful. I am grateful to have had this experience, and that is what this audio book is, an experience.
Once in awhile superior writing combines with superior narration to create a sum that is greater than its parts. Don't be scared off because Stephen King is the author. This is not blood, guts and gore, but rather a truly fascinating story of time travel and an examination of what might have been and what could be. You will not ever want to stop listening.
This audiobook is at the top of my list of all time incredible listens. I recommend this to everyone.
Compelling, thought-provoking, memorable
I love the
I disagree with the negative comments about Craig Wasson's narration, I felt he did an excellent job. I liked the different voices he used for the characters, and his performance really helped to make George/Jake a
Loved the ending, and could really feel Jake's pain.
I purchase this audiobook as it was rated well and the hours were enough so that I wouldn't be done with the book for a while. The flip side of that is listening to a bad book. This book was not bad and kept me wanting more.
How King writes and describes the past in clothing, music, terminology, cars, social-economical factors and more. One could actually be in that time.
While I appreciate the narrator changing his voice tone to match the characters one sounded like a bad imitation of Tootsie, another was a poor G. Bush and I didn't care for his Sadie voice as the whining tone was too much.
I enjoyed the suspense.
It's worth it!
