by far the most compelling book i have ever listened to. the narrator was fantastic with so many believable character voices. not man books bring a tear to my eye at the end. I would happily listen to this again straight off.
"Gripping from the outset!"
This is my first audio book and I'm hooked!
My English is... Well... Not that great so have never been able to get into a "book" hence my attempt at audio books
Have always enjoyed kings work. A friend of mine recommended this as my first audio book and I'm impressed!
The storey is amazing, the characters I was able to visualise really quickly, the environments become familiar.
Craig Wesson is fantastic, he was able to emit the characters extremely well.
Fate, Mystery, History, Science and everyday living all In one!
You get sucked in to the storey really quickly it's absolutely amazing.
I would recommend 11.22.63.
"Fantastic story beautifully read"
The narration was absolutely fantastic and kept me hooked.
His interpretation of the characters brought the story to life so much better than my reading voice could, He's consistent and faultless.
Hands down best story iv heard in a long time. im a massive king fan as it is but the narration on this book was excellent. Craig wasson gave the characters different voices and accents so it was easy to follow. id listen to a stephen king book read by a complete monotone void but the voice skills of mr wasson really made this one come alive for me and i find myself searching audible for more books read by him.
"A powerhouse of a performance"
Yes - it's 30 hours of great writing performed in a dramatic way. Sometimes it might be considered too long but this adds to the need for Jake to spend several years in the "land of ago".
Best: Jake Epping as George Amberson.
Craig Wasson's performance was so versatile that it's hard to pick an individual character portrayal but it really helped bring it to life, having read the book before.
"Maybe the past doesn't want to change..."
I did not fully realise the plot links with the fictional town of Derry from Stephen King's other works, mostly "It", until I listened to the audiobook version. Amazing!I felt that the Yellow/Green Card Men are left with unexplained, although this is probably on purpose.The Afterword written and read by Stephen King is an added bonus.
"Loved every minute - great narration."
This is the first King novel I've 'read' since I was in my late teens. Wow! It's excellent. Loved every minute. Wish I could go back in time and start it all again. Haha.
The narrator was first rate and really added to the experience. Listened in my car and for once, didn't mind getting stuck in traffic!
"Didn't want to to end,"
Well read, narrator is brilliant and I didn't tire of his voice at all. His accents were brilliant, particularly his German and Russian. Poignant ending and I found myself feeling quite tearful.
"Outstanding in every way!"
By far the best narration I have heard. Well done Craig. The library of voices he has the ability to use on cue works seamlessly in to the story.
As for the story Stephen King has done it again. Absolutely loved it. Could not stop listening and very easy to pick up at any point of the day. Just a fair warning that before bed can be dangerous as often ended up listening well in to the night.
As with anything from Stephen King that I have read or listened to I can always go back and read or listen again with the same enjoyment.
The story was not a horror, but was full of suspense and drew you further into the difficult decisions that are to be made
I felt he added life to the experience, and made it seem like you were experiencing the story as a spectator
The love story climax
"Great narration, book should have been shorter"
It was brilliantly written but it took forever for the story to develop
The bit at the end, when I eventually got there
