    I had this on my wish list for several months and finally decided to give it a try. Sorry I did, I could never get hooked into the story. The narrator's cadence was off-putting. I found myself learning how she would pronounce words and her phraseology then it started getting on my nerves. This is the first book I have put down barely one-half in. I will stick to Michael Connelly.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    I purchased this book from Audible a few months ago, and was reluctant to devote the time to it. Just finished the book today after starting on it one week ago. I thought it was very well done. Few books grab my attention from the very first chapter, but this one did exactly that. Yes, some spots lagged a little with too long descriptions, however I must admit it mostly helped to weave the story line. Craig Wasson was an excellent choice, thought I picked up on some impersonations: Jimmy Stewart to name one- made me chuckle. By part 4, I was too hooked to stop listening, and wore out my IPhone's battery, I don't know if I am easy to fool, but I was kept in the dark till the end. Even a few tears started, which surprised me. Now that I'm done with this King novel, what will I listen to next? Makes me want to start listening to 11-22-63 all over again!! Reset.

    Stewart Dubinsky knew his father had served in World War II. And he'd been told how David Dubin (as his father had Americanized the name that Stewart later reclaimed) had rescued Stewart's mother from the horror of the Balingen concentration camp. But when he discovers, after his father's death, a packet of wartime letters to a former fiancee, and learns of his father's court-martial and imprisonment, he is plunged into the mystery of his family's secret history.

    You need to read this book! There aren't many books I have read that compel me to write a review. I can't summon the words to describe how this book drew me in from the beginning. It was not at all what I expected it would be. I thought, just another WWII action story, with military battles and some espionage possibly. No way! It starts out as a son searching for an understanding of the father he never quite knew in life. As he uncovers the secret horrors of war his father endured (as an ordinary man), you hope he can find some comfort in the writings of his father. Edward Herrmann brought Mr. Turow's book to life, dodging and weaving between just enough portions of humor, sadness and intrigue so as not to bring the reader down too much. It is a tough story to tell for sure, but somehow I felt better after reading it. I am glad a took a chance and broke away from my usual Audible choices, Thank you Scott Turow and Edward Herrmann for the sort of storytelling experience I will never forget!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Excellent example of good story/narration"
    Overall

    This was my first Audible download, and I am finding it hard to move on. I was concerned the southern accents would overpower and remove me from the story. I was pleasantly surprised.The material was covered in a most interesting way and the characters came to life with voices that couldn't have been better. I thought it would be difficult to keep up with each woman's story, but the author interwove the chapters into a journey I did not want to end. I just saw the movie, it was good, but to me the book was the best use of a credit EVER!
