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 try another book from Stephen King and/or Craig Wasson?

I am a Steven King fan, but I would never buy another audio book narrated by Craig Wasson.

Has 11-22-63 turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes

How could the performance have been better?

Different narrator.

Any additional comments?

He claims to have been to Dallas and researched the subject, but I find it hard to believe.
For example, in this book, his main character claims that weeks of apartment searching failed to yield even one
