  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Stephen King
    • Narrated By Craig Wasson

    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 could not refrain from reviewing this new classic from King. Briefly, this book was fantastic due to:

    1. Narration: Wonderful voice, perfect inflections.. The character switches were smooth, and you could easily identify multiple characters by the voice change. Mr. Wasson is one of the best.

    2. Story Grab: The story got me early and kept me the whole ride.

    3. Character development: Before this book was complete, you do feel like you know these characters. One of King's best efforts in this regard.

    4. Story itself. A great concept, with just enough twists and turns to keep you on your feet. Time travel is a new kick for King, and he handled it very well. I will admit I had been very disappointed with some of King's recent works, but this proves he still has a lot of gas left in the tank.

    I highly recommend giving this listen a chance, you will not be disappointed.

    2012 The Maya Armageddon is not for the faint of heart. Apocalyptic rage is brewing in the covens of the wicked as The End approaches. Hear vampire's fangs biting into flesh, Listen to warrior angels slaying beasts and demons as they try to destroy life on Earth. All creatures of darkness and givers of light collide in this horrific tale about the Final Days of Armageddon!

    I have to agree with the other reviewer in saying that words escape me with this book. Apparently, they escaped the author as well. Was a definite waste for me.

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    "Great series"
    Overall

    I love audio books, but I have to be reeled in within the first 15 to 20 minutes or I lose interest and move on to the next one. This series caught me from the beginning and I haven't looked back. I am looking forward to the third book to see how everything is tied together.
