I can get thru almost anything and a book on sale has now taken on a new meaning. It's on sale because it is terrible. I know my mother always warned me about this but again I relearned my lesson.
Sometimes a story just does not come together. It drags and drags and you wait for the plane to take off but it stalled and just did not take off,
A good book and redemption from last book. He is no S. King and does not turn out good books each and every time, this is a winner.
It will be interesting to see if the next one is thrown in or thoughtfully written.
I like the series very much but some have a loss of cohesion and too much filler.
Train of thought all over the place and leaves you with, so now what.
It seems like 1/3 of a book and not book 1, if that is what it is. Buy it cheap or don't buy it
Story line follows and adventure is end to end. What's next, a good question. Can something from the future be next? Keep reading you will enjoy it.
Starts off slow and does not get any faster. Some how they missed the most impelling reason to keep reading. That would be the good battle scenes.
Well there is always the next one
Once you begin your journey with this series you are hooked. There may be some longer books and some better known authors but after you read the first book all others take a back seat.
"They" say everyone can write at least one good book in him, Mayberry breaks the mold with this series. In my humble opinion he has 4 with 5 stars and the last 4 stars. The next one will define his destiny.
I have read other books by him, sorry they did not move me. This series is his crown and each Ledger book his jewel. Cannot wait for #6.
Ray Porter does an excellent job with the reading and you will not fall asleep.
I really enjoy this author but this book is out there. While I can never put down other books I cannot get into this and I can get thru almost anything
Okay, I'll admit it. I don't love King and I thought there was nothing left to say about the JFK assaination. I should have known better, because Stephen King can always fine that psychological sweet spot. 11/22 is no exception.
11/22 moves at a snail's pace toward its supposed climax-THE day in Dallas. But this book is only incidentally about that event. What matters is the series of events that lead up to that fateful day, events that seemingly have little to do with the title. King develops Jake, his protagonist, masterfully. Jake's actions are a complex blend of logic and emotion. At times they are just plain silly. In short, Jake is every man. His steps and missteps seem almost formulaic, but that is by design. King lulls us into a kind of fiction stupor, and then springs his trap.
If all of this sounds like jibberish that's because I can't say more without giving away the plot. I encourage you to stay with this title. It's worth the time and you'll be drawn in, I promise. I had to keep reminding myself that it's been on the NYT best seller list forever-there must be a reason.
Also worth noting, my husband and I enjoy listening to books together, but our tastes don't match very often. This book worked for us both. I was surprised he stayed with it as he prefers espionage and the like, but he did, and he enjoyed it.
The narration was quite good. This was an ambitious project for any narrator and CW handled it masterfully.
So, the story is quie good. King does not disappoint. You certainly get a bang for your buck; it's long. I wouldnt suggest this as a pick to zip through in an afternoon or for a light read. However, both my husband and I found it to be worth the time investment.
