I didn't want to get this book as I don't like fantasy novels. All I can say is that it was well worth it. I really enjoyed the historical details and the character development aspects of this stoy. It was exceptionally researched and it shows. I have listened to many audio books and this is definitely in the top 10% If you like history but don't normally go for sci-fi, I would say try it.
This book is in my top 10 list of audible books.
Yes, this book was hard to put down.
Several subplots stung together as only Stphen King can . Bringing it to an unforgetable conclusion.
engrossing, nostalgic, entertaining
Jake, unwilling hero.
his tone, inflection and emotion made the book so enjoyable.
I was born in 1951 and as an Irish Catholic 20 miles north of Boston the Kennedy era was a very big part of my life. Reading this brought back many memories yet at the same time really made you think.
While the story was thrilling, it was unfortunate that Mr. King writes with such vulgarity. At the onset of the use of the F word, I was shocked at hearing it spoken from my Kindle and grateful that my grandson, son and husband were not within hearing distance. It spite of his dramatic reading and his variance of character voices, Mr. Wasson's performance was ruined and trashy because of the use of so much foul language. I even contacted Amazon to find out if there was a downloadable app to remove such language from being spoken...so much for parental controls; there is none. Someone might get rich by developing one such app.
I finished this wonderful book with many tears. Most of my favorite Stephen King books are from his earlier books. However, this is an awesome book! Not only is this a work of amazing science fiction/horror, it is a beautiful, tender love story. It was hard to pull myself away from it long enough to recharge my iPod. Stephen King, you rock! :)
The narrator did an excellent job portraying the different characters and conveying the terror and the sweetness in his voice!
Well done! Let's dance! :)
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. However, I would warn that there is some language and sexual content. Not a book for children. It is a wonderful listen though.
There are many and I hate to give a way plot. The concept of selling things taken from the past in the present was something I didn't think of. I always have thought about going back not bringing forward.
Too many to list. If I had to pick one I guess it would be the attempt to stop the Kennedy assassination.
If you could travel back to stop the Kennedy assassination, would you do it?
This was a great listen many hours of enjoyable audio keeping you on the edge of your seat!
Among the best I've listened to
I was hesitant as I had never listened to a Stephen King book but this was relentlessly inventive considering that it was built around historical facts.
I lose interest often when a book goes on for too long. This was not the case with this book. This book was interesting and fascinating right through to the end.
A roller-coaster ride through another history.
I don't know that I cared for the ending. It was such a terrific build-up to the titular event, that the outcome was anticlimactic.
Incredible narration -- brought all the characters to life with good accents and subtle nuance.
The past isn't what it used to be.
I'm not a Stephen King fan, but the storyline caught my attention. It is interesting and keeps you listening. It had a lot of rated R language,which is not something I like to hear; but I stayed with it anyway, waiting to find out what would happen next,
Liked the narrator.
