I found the intersection of time travel and the JFK assassination fascinating. Good story, great reading, and truly interesting. Highly recommend.
Acts Have Consequences
When the lovers meet again. When what the hero has done becomes frighteningly clear. But generally, King creates a universe that is true to itself, that lives in and around you, and each day when you return to the text, it's as if the world has continued on without you, as reality should.
Surprisingly good narrator. His actor's enthusiasm carried the story forward even in moments when the text was dry. His voices are a little shaky but effective -- Burt Lancaster, Jimmy Steward, other well known Hollywood movie stars leak into his characterizations. Even so, I was in the book from the beginning and will not hesitate to buy a novel read by Craig Wasson again.
King at his best is poignant, the fragility of life floating on the surface of his stories -- Bag of Bones comes to mind, The Green Mile, when the loss of a loved one is almost unbearable. That essence occurs here, too, but I won't ruin it for you. You'll have to discover it for yourself.
I am a writer and I am so damn envious of Stephen King's ability (in a good, positive, 'you can trust me with the only copy of your manuscript, Steve, while you buy gum' kind of way) I pick up his new work with both trepidation and anticipation. Like Dickens, King pleases his readers in a way no other living writer does.
Love TrueCrime! Most other non-fic, sports, TrueCrime,family/love stories, scary fiction, TrueCrime, Stevie King, TrueCrime, & TrueCrime!
First off, let me say right off the bat that I've banged out tons of books here on Audible and this narration was the best I've ever heard. He did a great job. It made me wonder at times if Stephen King was IN the room with him coaching up on how to read this book. He was emotional at all the right times, he kept a perfect pace, and all of his character voices were not only great, but he was able to return to them and keep them exactly as they were 30 chapters(or whatever)ago! I can't say enough about his performance. As for the book itself? I know it's nearly impossible to say King doesn't recieve enough credit, but seriously, King doesn't recieve enough credit! He should be recognized more for his telling of a love story. So well done. King is really one of life's treasures as far as I'm concerned. He takes you away like no one else I've ever read. (Im open for recommendations here too folks by the way😉)
Great reading great story! Very detailed story with great imagination. Glad I read it again
The story was fascinating and full of historical information. It was a little long winded in the middle.
The narrator Craig Wasson was amazingly good! His ability to give each character his or her own voice was terrific. His ability with accents was great as well. I will definitely look for other books narrated by Wasson.
And of course, King is - well, King.
I love any book about time travel and this one delivers! Must buy!
Excellent narrator. Since I have been listening to this in my car, I almost looked for excuses to do errands -- and loved commute to and from work.
Fascinating scenario of "what ifs"....
