Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet.

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.

It had a different tone than some of King's other novels. Or at least it seemed that way to me. It had a large romance theme. It seems much more hopeful and happy than some of the other novels I have read by him. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it.

These are fantastic books and the abridged versions do not do them justice. I figured this out from some of the other reviews and actually read the books which are worlds better. I hope that these will be redone without abridgement.
