USC grad, Audiobook lover of all kinds. Favorite narrator is Ralph Cosham.
So far, this is the best audiobook I've yet listened to.
Jake/George, obviously. It's hard to dislike such an awesome protagonist with really wonderful development that takes place throughout the novel.
In such a long book, that's rather hard to pin down. I think, surprisingly, the scene leading up to the confrontation with Oswald. Not because of Jake, but because of Sadie.
At first, as a young man I didn't see much value in her as a character, and found the whole lovey/dovey relationship to be geared more toward an older, straight audience. But Sadie turns out to be far more interesting, and bravo to King for pulling that off.
No. It's far too long for that. It worked as a wonderful
Really a wonderful read. If you're worried about King because he's known for horror, don't be. I'm not a horror fan much at all and there is almost nothing about the book that would make you think it's written by the stereotypical Stephen King.
He really proves his versatility as an author with this work. I'm seriously considering Under the Dome as a result.
I am married ( 26 years and counting!), I have two children a boy 16 and a girl 21. I love reading, gardening, knitting, art! People who say they would be bored when they retire just don't know themselves very well! I, on the other hand can't wait to have the time to do more of the things I truly love! Maybe write a book, a dream I have always had of doing!
This book took place six months before I was born, what a world I was born into and how scary it must have been for my parents! It is a amazing trip back in time to a world where my life began and never realizing growing up how close to disaster we were many times! How many times have I wondered "if only that would not have happened..." This is only the second book by Stephen King I have read, truely he is more than a writer of horror, what a great writer he is! What a treat at the end to hear King speak of his book!
WOW - this book is a feast for the brain. For those of us old enough to remember the 50s, it's a nostalgic trip into the past. Mr. King's description of sights, sounds and food make this book a feast for the brain. So many "what ifs" and Jake's character is so tangible. Don't miss this one!
I loved that it had history mixed with romance and suspence. This would make a wonderful movie too.
I loved the history. The romance, the small town feeling. Also the I wonder what happens if he saves JFK. The ending was a GREAT ending.
Wow, he can read to me anytime ( :
If you could go back in time to save JFK would you and if your did what are the results
Very engaging story with an equal mix of history and fantasy. Stephen King is my favorite author and this book did not disappoint. Craig Wasson did a wonderful job of narration. I definitely receommend this title.
The story was fantastic, the narrator first rate, but mostly the wanting to know more about the times. I was 21 and at Fort Ord CA for Basic Training on the day of the shooting. In fact we just had arrived for train fire to learn how to shoot our rifles. Before going in the Army I had seen JFK in Seattle campaigning. Years after the Army I was in Dallas and saw the building where Oswald shot JFK from, the grassy knoll and the monument. This novel
Fascinating, In Search of Lost Time closer to home. But no reader can do so many character voices, not even Craig Wasson. Here the Southern Belle sounds like a South Beach trannie in The Birdcage (La Cage Aux Folles). Distracting!
A valiant attempt.
I am a web site developer and SEO specialist who likes to listen to books while brewing beer. Crazy I know.
There are so many books on time travel that are mired in the scientific paradoxes of Time Travel.
I liked this story because of the character development. Deep detailed and all with their own troubles. Each one has a motivation in this story and their past has a deep influence on their actions and reactions. Great characters make a great story.
I have not listened to Craig Wasson before but I will look forward to more books that he has narrated. One of the best no doubt. My favorite is Scott Bric, Craig is a close second
I really did have an extreme reaction to this book. Many touching scenes with a beautiful love story mixed in. There are several moments where our hero deals with the pains of his actions or inaction, feelings we can all relate to
Time travel is a messy subject to write about, so many loose ends. This book handles them in a way that it does not get in the way of the story. At first I felt that the premise of the story was ridiculous but as the story went on is was all handled in a way that worked. Great book fun read.
Love mystery, Favs-Clancy, King,
Great story with great storytelling. I was on a break from Stephen King books too! He is in his best on this book! GREAT listen!
