    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! While I am a big SK fan, this may be his best. From the first few pages, I can captured, unable to stop the flow. Since I remember so vividly that day, and since I live in Fort Worth, TX, it struck so close to home.

    It was eye-opening to hear streets, businesses, and landmarks I am so familiar with. But just going back thru that history, that time in our country;s past, made this something very special.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 11-22-63?

    The end. I won't spoil it, but it was the ending.


    Which character – as performed by Craig Wasson – was your favorite?

    Sadie, I think. But really, all the characters were, well, so real. I know that some were real, of course, we are dealing with real history here. But those who lived in Mr King's mind, they became real, too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh, yes, of course, I wanted to listen to it all in one sitting. But there was no way for me to do that, given the length.


    Any additional comments?

    What a wonderful listen!!
