I found out from his remarks that the end he had been planning it in the style of"Time After Time" in time travel. It works wonderfully putting you back in that era. It held me in suspense because I didn't know how he was going to end it. In the end he used an ending his son had suggested and it worked perfectly. I totally enjoyed tis book.
The ending was perfect. couldn't have come up with as good and ending if I had tried for a thousand years.
This is my first experience with Craig and I was totally enthralled as he told the story. The naration was perfect.
I wouldn't make a film of this book because so much would need to be left out. In itself it is perfection.
book to be savored in its entirity.

The difference between audio and print is only in the physical aspects of holding a book and reading to yourself, but your time must be dedicated. Whereas an audio version allows you to do other things at the same time.
Many of Stephen King's other novels have unusual and sometimes far-fetched concepts, made plausible by the writer. The most recent might be The Dome.
If you could alter one event that changed your life, what would it be?
I always like the unabridged because I don't want to miss out on anything a favorite author might say.
Stephen King can certainly tell a story. I was anxious and excited to see what was going to happen. I was not dissapointed. I was also pleased with Mr. Wasson's performance.
There are many amazing stories in the King canon...but in my humble opinion...the best one yet! Craig Wasson was a perfect George Amberson along with nailed inflections on each one of the other multiple characters throughout this story.
This novel holds the listener's interest from the first ten minutes and doesn't let go. 11-22-63 reminded me of what Stephen King does best- tell a story that you can lose yourself in. A must have for time travel fans, King followers, and modern history buffs alike. Craig Wasson puts on a one man show as narrator, keeping you in the story with his impeccable voicing of this thriller.
You don't have to be a huge fan of King to love this book, the storytelling is amazing. I was hooked after the first chapter, the writing was amazing and King blends exciting action with character building and a great story seamlessly. The book never gets boring!

The concept of a parallel universe, as described by King.
I have not listened to other performance by Wasson but I would like to. He is an excellent performer.
This book kept my undivided attention.
Unlike a lot of Stephen King's books that are full of hairy scary thrills, this was a compelling sci-fi adventure based on history.
I really liked this book, and I don't consider myself a big Stephen King fan. I loved the time travel concept, especially with it intertwined with real historical events. I found this story interesting, educational, fun and thought provoking!

It is much too long for 1 sitting but I felt that I more than got my credit worth
I had never read a Stephen King novel until 11-22-63 and was a bit apprehensive at first as I thought, especially with the subject matter of this book, it would be overly political. It has its political moments of course but most of them are in keeping with the story and help flesh out the characters motives. I thoroughly enjoyed Kings exceptional scene setting descriptions which are brought to life by narrator Craig Wasson. The narrator's ability to deliver seamless dialogue between multiple characters draws you deeper and deeper into the world of ago.
Loved this book. Right up there with the best of them. Made me want to re-read IT! Stephen King is the King of Storytelling, and this was a really good story.
It was definitely a story that I didn't want to put down. I was swept away.
