I liked that I learned more about the history of WWII and why events unfolded as they did. It's great to see it from different perspectives. Especially from the German perspective.
I realize that this is fiction, but I thought how easily the Russians obtained the plans for "FAT Boy" was memorable.
I think the author has a good sense of humor which I enjoyed throughout the book.
It was a little too contrived and predictable at times.
A great read. King does an incredible job of weaving fact and fiction together to make a very compelling story. His attention to detail helps the reader really feel and taste what living in the late 1950's and early 1960's must have felt like (I was only a child during that period).
This book filled in many of my own personal holes related to the Kennedy assassination. Occams razor aside, I still don't understand the "magic bullet" anymore than I did before the read, but the background information presented helped explain many of the missing pieces for me.
I also really enjoyed Mr. Kings closing statements about Jack Ruby. That also explained a lot to me.
As an avid dancer myself, I certainly understand that "dancing is life". I hope that Stephen keeps dancing. I certainly will enjoy future listens.
Thanks Mr. King!!
This is an interesting way to push Christianity. Jesus is good, Muslim beliefs are evil, Jews are just Jews. The story flows fast and is hard to put down, but the real intent is to proselytize Jesus. It's all too compartmentalized for my taste. If you read it with the understanding that the author is a great fiction writer, it starts to just be fun.
