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.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

better story, quicker narration

Would you ever listen to anything by Stephen King again?

yes... some of his older stories are very inspired.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

yes... both were the protagonist and narrator sounded bored.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

as always Steve King develops characters very thoroughly.
