    Even the most die-hard baseball fans don't know the true story of William Blockade Billy Blakely. He may have been the greatest player the game has ever seen, but today no one remembers his name. He was the first - and only - player to have his existence completely removed from the record books.

    "I've experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?" (Ellen DeGeneres)

    Julie says: "Not so much."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely recommended. Ellen's sense of humor never dissapoints! She's able to seamlessly combine her very real thoughts on life and her charming wit in an infectious way that leaves you wanting more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book feels more like a stand-up special. So to describe


    What does Ellen DeGeneres bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Not only does she devote a chapter just to making random noises for audible users, but hearing her perform her work in the way she intended makes the book that much more enjoyable!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It certainly made me laugh!!

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (16439)

    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.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Outstanding!!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of 11-22-63 to be better than the print version?

    Would think so! The performance was outstanding! Sometimes felt like I was there with the narrator!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 11-22-63?

    The first trip into 1958!


    Have you listened to any of Craig Wasson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I intend to search for other books he's performed!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Too many to name..


    Any additional comments?

    Must listen for any history buff. My first King novel and audio book. Everything after will seem dull! Loved every minute of it!
