I agree with the other reviewers, a great story with wonderful insight. Well researched. The reader's poor pronunciation of so many words was such a distraction. She had a very pleasant voice but no concept how to pronounce so many Italian names, not to mention several English words too.
I thouroughly enjoyed this book. It was my first Stephen King and I just loved the quality of the writing, the narration (great diversity in accents and voices) and the story. I was taken in from the first page and was really sorry to see it end. I was touched by some of the memories from the period that this book triggered, from the details of the hair tonic to the twist-o-flex watch. I had them both!
The approach to time travel was very clever and I particularly enjoyed the way it was used to achieve a "do overr" when plans did not go right the first time. I heard that it is being made into a movie and can't wait to see it. No doubt they are aiming for the 50th anniversay of the assination.
I could not put this one down. I could not wait for Louis to get off that raft only to find out how much worse things could get. What an amazing story. I am sorry it had to end.
