I haven't read a Stephen King book for many years. then 11/22/63 was recommended on a podcast that I listen to and the idea behind it sounded interesting. Can you go back in time and change a major event in history.? And if you do, what happens to the rest of the history?
Come along with Jake and find out the answer to these and many more questions in a classic story by King. The story is gripping, the performance is great, and it's a big bank for your buck or credit.
Yes, I'd highly recommend it!
Accents were great and inflections between characters always were perfect. Easy to tell each character apart.
Yes, but there was no way to do so.
Loved the Afterward read by Stephen King himself. Really added to the book.
This is the best since the Green Mile. Great reader and even though it is a long book it is riveting. My favorite so far in 2012.
Great story! I like to listen on my iPod while doing chores around the house, and found myself coming up with all kinds of things that needed cleaning just so I could keep listening to this book.
The narrator was pretty good overall, however, in my opinion he sounded too old for the main character, who is 35-40. After hearing Stephen King's afterword, I actually think he would be a great narrator for this book.
Craig Wasson's interpretation of the main character is A1!
The way George expresses his love for Sadie is soooo endearing.
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
