"runs out of steam. "
excellent performance, but the story runs out of steam, worth listening too but don't expect too much.
"I didn't want this to end!"
The way King describes the land of ago.
Jake Epping. A great character and he is very relatable!
The lead up to, and death of Frank Dunning (the first time).
The past does not want to be changed!
I didn't want this book to end. I loved it from start to finish! I've read/listened to it 3 times now, and I'm still not bored with it. The ending is beautiful but very un-King-like, yet it was the ending the book deserved. I felt Sadie a little flakey at times and found that she easily believed George/Jake when he told her about why is is there. But, I suppose that's what Love is.
I enjoyed the experience of watching Jake/George transform from a High School Teacher, into a murderer and how he justified the killing of Dunning.
9/10 for me. One of the best books I have read; I'll never forget it.
Really enjoyed this book. This is a long book that I didn't want to end. The story was easy to visualise and the narrator was excellent in his delivery and the emotion he puts into it. Brilliant and thought provoking story
"Amazing insights - amazing twists and turns"
Seems backwards writing about after the novel ends first. Make sure you listen to the afterword by Stephen King when you finish listening.
The 32+ hour long novel felt daunting, that was, until I was suddenly half way through and realised I had not once felt bored, nor the story felt stale. From one chapter to the next I was intrigued throughout - every single chapter I was eager to hear what happened next.
This has to be the best audio book I have listened to - it was well worth the hours I set aside for it.
"Great story and fantastic narration"
Really enjoyed the story. It was over 30 hours and don't drag at all. Made me look forward to long journeys. Real insight into early 1960s America. Characters were believable and interesting.
Craig Wasson's narration was absolutely fantastic and up there with the best. At times it was really moving and his voice brought the characters to life. Highly recommended
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.
