What an incredible book. I believe this has to be Mr. Kings finest work and I absolutely loved Craig Wasson. Just read it...
The whole time concept.
The ending. All I will say is "the dance"
It did, more tears then laughs.
I love the use of historical events.
This one made it difficult to hit the pause button.
I took my wife and son to San antonio on vacation and on our last day in Texas drove up to Dallas and spent the day. the entire time bits of the novel kept playing over in my mind.
I normally don't like Stephen King books, but after reading other reviews I was intrigued This book had me glued from the start. I would HIGHLY recommend it.
Jake/George, He is the same age as me in the start of the book and I really could relate to him. I also really liked Harry Dunning. My heart went out to the tragic hand he was dealt in life. Such a sweet man
So many to name
I've been addicted to reading since high school. I started with pulp novels, switched to great literature in college and now read everything
King can't do romance, and he can't do humor. Both of those elements in 11/22/63 are really, really bad. He's a good storyteller, and that's about it. This novel should be cut to about 20% of its length. It might make a good novella or short story. As a novel, it's mediocre at best.
Audible junkie - I count the days until my credits arrive just like Christmas and have to limit myself to just two, ok, maybe three a month.
Yes, my favorite listen of all time.
I haven't but the rest of his works are my next stop.
I'd have to agree with some of the other reviews that it was a little slow in the middle but overall, an excellent book. Stephen King is not one of the authors I usually read but didn't realize I was missing out on such good work. I thoroughly enjoyed 11/22/63 and was sorry it ended even despite it's length
The whole story made me feel like I was a part of it. He dis a great job on the different parts and kept it fun and easy to listen to.
I waited to get this book. I wont lie the thought of a book about President Kennedy would bore me to tears. This book was amazing the Kennedy part was second to the whole story leading up to it. I didnt want this book to end. One of the best books I have ever heard a definite must get!!
Stephen King is such a great storyteller. Who hasn't wanted to know what it would be like if a transformative event like the JFK assassination hadn't happened
The profile a man nobody really knew. Lee Harvey Oswald
Too many to name just one
I would recommend this book. It was several stories in one. I'm not one for love stories, but this love story was so easy to understand. It was a love story hidden among other types of stories and I just loved it!
The main character, of course. If you listen, you'll understand.
Feeling for the character he's reading about/for.
I have to admit that I'm a total Audible junkie. MUST have book going at all times. I may be the subject of a family intervention someday.
Beautifully written, moving.
Don't know if it was a book or not first, but of course the great movie with Ashton Kutcher, "The Butterfly Effect" came to mind often.
Almost impossible to put down.
Might be my favorite Stephen King novel since "The Stand" and "The Dead Zone". He's so wonderful at getting you into the main character's shoes, always an ordinary if intelligent person the reader can identify with, but living under extraordinary circumstances. Wonderful detail, sight/sound/smells put you right into the world he creates, supported by a terrific reading by Craig Wasson. Wasson's JFK, Walter Cronkite and David Brinkley (or was it Chet Huntley?) impressions are spot on. And keep your ears open for a surprise appearance by Jimmy Stewart as an FBI guy.
.Already have two people reading it and many more that want to listen.
I think Stephen King did a great job with the creative twists and turns..... I love the nostalgia that is intertwined in the story.
He does a wonderful job!
It was too long for one sitting but I definitely was ready to restart everytime I had a free moment!
