Stephen King is just a master story-teller! I hadn't read any King in years but heard several glowing reviews of this book and had to give it a try. I wasn't disappointed!!!
The story is spectacular, King draws the reader in from the get-go! Based on well-researched facts, this book is historical fiction overlaid with a fantastical story of time travel...And somehow he makes it perfectly believable!
A terrific performance by Craig Wasson, just enough acting and changes in expression in voice added to narration greatly.
I absolutely could not put this recording down. It was fantastic and I was sorry to see it end.
Having just reached voting age, Jack Kennedy was the fist president I ever voted for and I remember his assassination as if it was yesterday. Stephen King did a great job referencing the events that led up to the loss of what may have been one of the greatest presidents we've ever had. I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end so much that I will listen to it again.
This was a great novel. Keeps the reader engaged from beginning to end! The fact that it's based on true events just adds to the intrigue, but a great story is woven in as well. Would recommend to anyone - even if you aren't an avid Stephen King reader!
I was 15 when JFK was slain, so I remember the times well. It was fun to go back to "the good old days" (that were the bad times if you weren't a WASP). The whole setting rang true except for one of the kids in 1963 saying "man up." I don't remember that phrase being used then.
Stephen King is really a great storyteller. This book kept me up late listening and doing quiet chores that didn't take brain power so I could listen all day.
How often have we thought how things would turn out if?
This answers this one question like that with a few side turns and different events, however the plot is pretty straight forward in that you can pretty much see the next event happening. The ending however is different and will make a listener/reader stop and think. Over all I enjoyed the plot and the narrator 'Craig Wasson' did a masterful rendering.
Yes, he is an estalished author.
It was told in the first person.
Camalot or hell?
Started listening to this book duirng a 500 mile ride to visit relatives. While there, I caught myself volunteering for store runs just to listen a bit more to the story. I remember the Kennedy assisination and this brought back many memories and SK made it very entertaining.
Good job again.
As a King fan I could hardly wait to download his newest novel!!!! From the beginning I was hooked.... The narrator is spectacular, the story breathtaking and I am looking for reasons to work around the house just to continue listening. The story never let's go and grabs you from page one. Do yourself a favor (I know 30+ hours is a bit long, but you will not be disappointed), download this story ASAP and get ready for the ride of your life!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tip top story, masterful narration! The variation in the voices, the accents, the little chuckles, the winces, the range of emotion, the sounds???I feel sorry for those that only read the print version. I can't do justice in this little box to how completely Craig Wasson brought this already terrific story to life. Bravo!
I loved this book.The narrator did a fantastic job bringing the characters alive. The story was good and was very thought provoking. The only thing this book was missing was the real motivation to save JFK, and why not only one man, but two would spend over 4 years of their lives to accomplish the task. Maybe I am too young to appreciate JFK? I still loved the book.
