    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.

    Story

    I absolutely loved this book, and especially the narration. Craig Wasson owned it. Not often, but sometimes a narration can make a great book even better. This book was not just narrated, but more precisely, performed. I found myself wanting to talk to Stephen King throughout the book and ask him questions, and to thank him. He had me laughing and crying. And like Jake Epping, I'm not a cryer. Thank you, thank you.

    One May evening in London, Adam Kindred, a young climatologist in town for a job interview, is feeling good about the future as he sits down for a meal at a little Italian bistro. He strikes up a conversation with a solitary diner at the next table, who leaves soon afterward. With horrifying speed, this chance encounter leads to a series of malign accidents, through which Adam loses everything—home, family, friends, job, reputation, passport, credit cards, cell phone—never to get them back.

    "No audiobook has ever made me angrier"
    Overall

    Why waste 10 or so hours building plot lines and suspense just to leave us with a lame love story. Character after character are introduced, and plot lines are painstakingly built to a crescendo, only to lead us to a boring semi-conclusion. The book ended and I yelled, "You've got to be kidding". Boyd's "Restless" was tremendous and made me hungry for another book by this gifted author. If you loved "Restless", stop there. I warn you.
