I normally enjoy Robin Cook's medical thrillers, but this one was a bummer. I was into the plot until it became so ridiculous. I am not into science fiction. I replayed the last 3 minutes thinking that my iPod had malfunction or that my download was corrupted. No such luck. That was the end of the story. After listing for hours with the most minute details given, the end just happened! No explanation, details, etc. Wasted time.
I am not a fan of Steven King normally, but this story sounded interesting. It was a"can't stop listening" selection. King makes time travel sound plausible, and now I look at everyday occurrences and coincidences in an entirely differen way. While listening, I felt like I was watching a movie because the characters were described in such detail.
I really appreciated all the references to life in the 50's and 60's. King has really done the research. The addition of King's voice at the end explaining research and his feelings about the climate of the times in Dallas, brought everything back to reality.
One doesn't have to be a science fiction fan to love this novel
This is one of Grisham's best. Besides an exciting story line, one gets an insider's view into political and personal machinations in America's legal system. The storyline is believable, yet incredible at the same time. The frustrations of people trying to save an innocent man and the persistence of two men--one a sleazy lawyer and one a minister who is a stranger to all involved--is riveting.
