"Time travel with a twist"
Another great Stephen King story, well researched and captivating right through. it is always fun to read different views on time travel and the consequences and the view as seen by Jake is definitely an interesting one.
Really makes you think about time travel and how things can be changed.well detailed and gripping.
"Above average time travel novel"
An excellent book that opens the debate on the consequences of time travel coupled with fascinating insights into the prevailing conspiracy theories surrounding the JFK assassination. Well read, in such a way that the listener is continuously led on to the next event. Right at the top of Mr King's honour roll.
Having read the book this added extra dimensions
The first time our hero steps through the larder
Ther were some tedious bits, always will be in a book this long. The description of the months spent by Lee Harvey Oswald leading up to the big day did drag on a bit. But as always with Stephen King the clever twists and explanations of paradoxes were brilliant
"Clever idea hiding behind a long, dull story."
Interesting idea but didn't quite hang together or, disappointingly in my mind, fully address the theory which might have been quite clever/interesting. The entire story seemed to play out at about half the pace it should have with no obvious reason. I only made it to the end because I hoped something would come up to justify the great length; it never did. The narration was fine aside from the Russian accents which sounded more like Arnold Schwarzenegger than any Russian I've ever met. Overall pretty forgettable.
Just like Under The Dome this book is huge and very daunting to read! That's why I started to listen to it instead. It's much easier to listen to it and it's not as heavy!
The story has you gripped and keeps you listening. It's not a big thrilling ride but a gentle amble along with occasional thrills. It's interesting enough to keep you thinking about what's going to happen next.
The characters are well thought out and so real. Yes the idea of time travel is theoretical but you can easily believe it.
I'm 40% of the way through and I've got to the point where I'm on edge wanting to listen all day! I can't wait to see where the story takes me and what happens to Jake/George!
"Very enjoyable story"
Am new to audiobooks, but this is one of my favourites. I've listened to around 80hours of audiobooks since finishing this one, now relistening to see how the experience changes. Really enjoying it on the second listen as well.
The book is well performed; the characters are voiced well, and their emotional inflections are not over done. After a while, I wasn't hearing the accent just the story, which would seem to be a good indicator of the quality of the story and the performance.
Couldn't listen to it all in one sitting - there's just too much story.
"Not to be missed for anything!"
The rich believabe characters
All of it
No, But craig wasson's performance was incredible
My favourite audio book to date after about 20 audios.
"A little over-long but a great listen"
I am a big fan of Stephen King but didn't think I could handle listening to a horror novel on audio, so chose this. I wasn't disappointed, and was really impressed with how well he wove the story and made the time-travel convincing. It's a little baggy in places in terms of pacing, but the brilliantly drawn characters make up for this.
"Gripping, a couldn't put down book!"
Emotional, Beautiful, Heartbreaking
I can't think of another book to compare this to, it was unique yet familiar in many ways.
The book made me laugh and made me cry, it was a rollercoaster ride of emotions and it wasn't the ending I was expecting!
It took me a while to get into this book, I wondered where it was going and I wasn't sure I liked the narrator much at first, but as it went on, i became intrigued and found that I looked forward to my 2 hour journey to and from work just so that I could listen to more of the book. I was quite distraught when it finally came to an end and the ending wasn't quite what I thought it would be but brilliant all the same.
