I'll admit it, I'm a historical fiction junkie. I've read and enjoyed all of Philippa's books and this one didn't disappoint me. I may not be the most discerning of listeners in this area and so she gets a lot of leeway from me, but I did like it and would recommend it.
I have been a longtime reader of King and enjoy about 98% of all his work. That being said, I have a large spectrum, from books I love (Dark Tower, Cell, the Shining, Talisman, to name a few), to ones that are good (Dreamcatcher), to those that are OK (Lisey's Story). This one hovers between good and OK. I am willing to put up with a lot from King--I did read From A Buick 8 and The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, after all--and so I joined him on this foray into the past to address one of the more common time machine plots. It was an alright journey, with hints of a broader machine beyond the immediate question of saving JFK, but just hints. I enjoyed it, but not nearly as much as some of his others.
