  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (16155)

    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.

    What did you love best about 11-22-63?

    The story grabbed hold of me and didn't let go. The richness of the characters and the story made everything come alive. I laughed and cried along with Jake and got swept along for the ride. And what an incredible ride it was!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The blend of history and fiction was excellent. It was, at some moments, difficult to remember that this was a work of fiction. I felt like I was right there in the streets and neighborhoods of Dallas.


    Have you listened to any of Craig Wasson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first encounter with Craig Wasson's work. I am looking forward to hearing more.


    Any additional comments?

    Will 11-22-63 take the place of The Stand as my favorite Stephen King book? Hmmmm....

  • Roadside Crosses: A Kathryn Dance Novel

    Story

    The Monterey Peninsula is rocked when a killer begins to leave roadside crosses beside local highways -- not in memoriam, but as announcements of his intention to kill. And to kill in particularly horrific and efficient ways: using the personal details about the victims that they've carelessly posted in blogs and on social networking websites.

    B. Riddick says: "Okay....but not 20 hours and not Deaver's best"
    "Loved the story"
    Overall

    While I got exactly what I expected from the story itself, I, too, was disappointed that the "20" hours was really only about a third of that. Audible needs to put a very visible disclaimer on this listing. "The Blue Nowhere" was written ages ago and I already have that one. Glad I found out before I downloaded "Roadside Crosses Part 3" so I didn't waste my time... I still would have bought "Roadside Crosses" if the listing had said something like "Includes a bonus recording of "The Blue Nowhere", abridged, 6 hours."

    When she was only 16, Cassidy Buchanan fell for the 19-year-old bad boy in town, Brig McKenzie, who'd had his share of run-ins with both the law and the local women. Then a terrible fire killed Cassidy's sister, and Brig, the chief suspect, was forced to run away. Seventeen years later, an eerily similar fire seriously injures Cassidy's husband, Chase, who happens to be Brig's brother. With the earlier fire still an open case, suspicion turns to Cassidy, the only unharmed person connected to both tragedies.

    I found this book tedious. Took forever to wade through to the interesting parts. Can't recommend this one.
