  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    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.

    King at his best. Craig Wasson did a great job narrating. Altogether a top notch listening experience.

    Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

    Story

    The story has an interesting premise but it left me disappointed. The book is filled with graphic descriptions of violence but I found myself growing bored with the numerous fights with little character development. My acid test when reading a book is whether I developed an interest in the characters and their outcomes. As I listened I found myself not caring whether a character survived at the end and whether they succeeded in their efforts. It is an OK listen but based on its reviews I was expecting more.

    Ralph Roberts has an incurable case of insomnia, but lack of sleep is the least of his worries. Each night he stays awake, Ralph witnesses more of the odd activity taking place in Derry after dark than he wants to know. The nice young chemist up the street beats his wife and has delusions about beings he calls "The Centurions".

    Story

    Some books are better read than listened to. This is one of those books. This isn't one of Mr. King's better efforts but certain aspects of the book appeal to me. When I saw it available on Audible I thought I'd take the opportunity to listen to Eli W.'s reading. He did a fair job but as many others have commented before me, the music gets in the way.
