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."
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!
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.
This was my first encounter with Craig Wasson's work. I am looking forward to hearing more.
Will 11-22-63 take the place of The Stand as my favorite Stephen King book? Hmmmm....
I found this book tedious. Took forever to wade through to the interesting parts. Can't recommend this one.
