  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story

    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

    If you are considering this book, I would say you need to be a fan of Stephen King, or a fan of time travel stories, but not necessarily both. The story evolves nicely, so to make a comparison, it's very different from "The Stand" which has far more character development. In fact, I was unable to listen to the stand. Without concrete plot evolution, I found that by a third of the way through the book, I didn't know who anyone was. My brain kept tuning out.

    Hopefully that comparison will succeed in explaining that this is not one of those books.

    This book was great in keeping your interest most of the time. I have had tried many books that have had that issue.

    I try to keep reviews short not to spoil anything, and this story has plenty of developments that you need to appreciate without warning. So, to conclude, well done Stephen, and well done Craig. I wish there were more books like this one.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Story

    I loved this book. I am giving it five stars across the board because as soon as I was done listening, I went on to read the next one immediately, and then the entire series. In fact I would say I enojyed them all, perhaps the last one was my least favorite. So, if you are looking for a book that you could continue following the stories of some of the characters for a few books, then I highly recommend this series.

    Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, police detective Elijah Baley has little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions. But when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer. Then he learns that he has been assigned a partner: R. Daneel Olivaw. Worse, the R stands for "robot" - and his positronic partner is made in the image and likeness of the murder victim!

    Story

    I have a friend who said he read this trilogy in school years ago. This is the first book in the trilogy, and I enjoyed it very much. The story is easy to follow, and the narrator does a great job. The story will not have as many dimensions as a 26 hour Stephen King novel, but keep in mind it is only 7 hours. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the logical angle of what it is to deal with robots governed by the 3 laws.

    In the third volume of The Dark Tower, Roland, the last gunslinger, is moving ever closer to the Dark Tower that haunts his dreams and nightmares. But he is no longer alone. He has trained Eddie and Susannah, who entered Mid-World from their separate whens in New York City in The Drawing of the Three, in the old ways of the gunslingers. But their ka-tet is not yet complete.

    Kristin says: "A reader for the ages!"
    "More great storytelling"
    Overall

    I am giving this book 5 stars as it is a great read by a brilliant author, but I will say that so far, the second is my favorite. The drawing of the three was just so diverse, it felt like 3 books in one. This book will not disappoint though. It continues to dwelve deeper in this strange world which boasts new characters and keeps your attention. As great as this novel is, the fact that Frank Muller is the reader adds even more enjoyment for the audience. Stephen King is one of the best authors of all time for a reason. His works ( even if most film adaptations are so-so at best ) are a privilege to read. I am currently reading part 4, Wizard and Glass, and will post a review.

    Stephen King returns to The Dark Towerin this second, mesmerizing volume in his epic series. After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea, each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower.

    Kevin says: "If you read this, you're hooked"
    "Great storytelling"
    Overall

    This is a great book to follow the gunslinger. I personally thought this was a far better book than the first, and urge anyone who read the first to read ( listen ) to this one and will definenately leave you wanting more. Although it is a series of 7, this book does not leave you dangling so to speak. Obviously the story continues, but not in some cheap soap opera type manner. I don't want to mention specifics, but this my one my top 5 books of all time. I am currently listening to the 3rd book in the series and will post a review for each volume. I don't know how Steven King comes up with these great stories, but his talent is evident here. A And I only give a handful of books my A . Others of my favorites include, The lion's game, The Runaway Jury, and The Doomsday Conspiracy.
