King is great, and the Shawshank Redemption is a quick way to prove it. Great read and if you have seen the movie, the book (as usual) is so much better. The depth of feeling in the characters is wonderful.
This is a nice educational story that takes the reader through the biblical 1000 year earthly kingdom, but, it was slow and ended someone suddenly.
A riveting story of what if. The possibilities of time travel and the effect on history is really compelling and King does an amazing job in pulling those possibilities out is a realistic way. Crain Wasson does an amazing job in narrating the book, it felt like a fireside conversation with a good friend. Little disappointed in the ending, but overall this was a fantastic journey well worth taking.
The best thing I can say is listening to the audio book made me scared. I was listening to this book while on a trip to Salt Lake City, during the first part of the book, I was terrified when I walked by people and they were coughing. An amazing story that you will get completely sucked into. Once you start, you may as well get some coffee, because you will not want to stop until it is over. Great, Great, Great story.
Steinbeck has a way off pulling you back in time with his story. A very valuable life journey and a great listen. Well worth your time.
