  • 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.

    Story

    I have a lot of experience with Stephen King (and Richard Bachman) books. While I mostly listen to the unabridged audio versions, I have also read some too. King normally takes several chapters to get everything laid down and established. Not so with this one. It you are looking at this review, then you also are an audio fan. Craig Wasson does such an incredible job with this material...you'd swear he was sitting in front of you and telling you a personal story! I hardily recommend this book to those who have long periods where you can listen. Hope you enjoy!

    "In the middle of the road of my life I awoke in a dark wood, where the true way was wholly lost." When you find yourself suddenly without bearings, as Dante Alighieri voiced so well centuries ago, where will you look for guidance? Throughout the ages, teaches David Whyte, the language of poetry has held a special power to hazard ourselves boldly at the "fierce edges" of our lives. On Midlife and the Great Unknown, you will engage with poetic imagination as it was meant to be experienced.

    I am so grateful I found David Whyte, a deeply talented and profound observer and orator.

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    Amazon Customer says: "Typical Grisham, entertaining"
    "Not the best Grisham written"

    Story

    This book is still worth listening to, however it isn't one of John Grisham's best. The unabridged edition was rather dragging for the first 20 chapters or so then it started to pick up some. I have listened to all of John's books and this one is only worth the freebie if you get them.

    It’s the early 1980s—the country is in a deep recession, and life after college is harder than ever. In the cafés on College Hill, the wised-up kids are inhaling Derrida and listening to Talking Heads. But Madeleine Hanna, dutiful English major, is writing her senior thesis on Jane Austen and George Eliot, purveyors of the marriage plot that lies at the heart of the greatest English novels.

    Story

    This would have been a wonderful short story if the hours of snobbish name-dropping had been edited out. The story was all but lost in the authors attempt to prove his own literary expertise.
    The narrator did an excellent job characterizing, However his female voices came through as gay rather than authentic female which was distracting.
