OK, so I am not a laugh out loud kind of person. It takes a lot to get me to do that. There were a few moments in the book that brought me to an out loud laugh, but I did chuckle a lot. For that alone it was worth listening to. Laughing, even chuckling, makes you live longer. So listen and live! Maybe it'll add a couple of days or months to your life.
Poor JFK. That poor man has been murdered over and over again in the press, in the Warren Report, in books, articles, newspapers, etc. Each author has a different spin and different selling point. Stephen King is no different. Just when you thought no new spins on the same story/theory, Mr. King comes out with another. I'm glad for that. It was a good story, even if the content was familiar. I didn't think I'd like it, but I did. Mr. King has been a popular writer for a long time and with good reason. He can spin a good tale. If you have more than a day, listen. You'll find yourself wanting to put those earplugs in your ear to find out what happens next.
This book was hard to hear but a compelling listen. I felt as though I was hearing both the story and feeing the pain at the same time. An unbelievable ordeal.
I read this book when I was much younger. As I near retirement I listened to this with the same enthusiasm as I did then. It still has the romantic charge without the graphic details of today's usual fare. Try it for the first time, the second time or fifth...you won't be sorry! What a story!
Don't miss this book! Very interesting and sad. Hard to believe how a people can be so misdirected and denied basic human rights. Take a risk and listen to something that is out of your comfort zone. You won't be sorry. This book is informative and well written.
