I would strongly recommend this book to anyone, even those who might at first not be keen on the idea of reading a King book.
It's hard to pinpoint a favorite character as all of them are great and well developed, but I'd say I liked Al the best and its a pity he isn't featured in more of the book.
Again I'd have to say Al, though Wasson does a great job capturing the different accents and manners of speaking. Really quite amazing how he can switch between Russian, German, Massachusetts, Texas and several other accents. Each character really has a distinct voice.
Well considering its length that wouldn't be possible, but it was well worth the investment of my time.
This is just an overall great book and I was really impressed. I haven't read a Steven King book since I was 16 or 17 and was at first skeptical, though intrigued by the books premise. Once I started reading, however, I was hooked and remained that way until the end. The narrator does an excellent job and I'll be sure to look for other books read by him.
I've been a King fan for years. This is by far my favorite audiobook from him. It held my attention from the time I popped it in my car cd player until the end. Even though it was in 4 parts I listened to the WHOLE thing in what seems like no time. It really gripped my imagination. After it was over I found myself wishing for another hour of audiobook because it was such a great story. I've been with Audible for quite sometime and can't say that about too many books.
The narrator is excellent! A great storyteller. I'm on part four of the book now and don't want it to end. I am not normally a King fan, so this book was a pleasant surprise.
Stephen King outdid himself! The interweaving of the story with what I recall of that time was wonderfully done.
Way at the top. It game great fiction but at the same time gave me information on Oswald.
Great feeling about the 60's (my time)
I love all the voices and accents he can do.
At the end, when he dances with the heroine.
Trip through time.
He did a great job conveying all the characters.
In 11/22/63, Stephen King does what King does best - he tells a story that captivates and ensnares the reader. While I was listening to this book, I wanted nothing more than to continue listening to find out what was going to happen to Jake and the rest of the residents of Jodie, Texas. Would he be able to stop the Kennedy assassination? And, if he did, what changes would it make in the world? Craig Wesson did a wonderful job narrating the book.
Craig Wasson IS every person in this story. His delivery is fantastic and makes you feel you are there. There is no way I would ever have "read" the New England or Texas accents. Some things are hard to listen to but they would also be hard to read.
I've "listened" to Stephen King books before but they never kept my attention. The story line is enough to keep you interested but the flow of the events is all King. This is the the best Stephen King book I have heard or read.
"Everything tastes better"
The way he laid out the setting of the 60's. I loved the way he put u there in that time. I loved knowing those characters. It carries you somewhere you don't want to leave.
He's a good narrator. Nothing to complain about.
Feel for the step.
The only bad thing i found with this story was the futures were a let down. They were kind of weak. I understand where he was going and why it happened this way...i just wasn't feeling it. I loved living in that world of the past though. He really brought that to life! Beautiful. Something about it whispered of Lisey's story. Maybe the boys stories. The bad gunky.

I have been hum drummed by SK in the past, and thought he might have had a shift after his Trauma. But I was overwhelmed by his handling of this plot, I do not believe it could have been better written.
Craig Wasson does an outstanding job bringing to life the many voices of both the women and men in this intriguing book.
The story was well-paced, historical, clever and well written.
The description and vibrancy of the dance scene between the central characters is most memorable to me.
I cried because it was over... I could have listened to another 30 hours.
I would recommend this book.
