I'm listening to the audiobook, it's long and very engaging, what a story! I recommend it.

*sigh* I love SK, but I wasn't overly impressed with this one. Maybe I should re-read it...


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

I loved this book. I thought it was very engaging, and I loved his take on the "What if JFK had lived".

My wife listened to the audiobook last spring while I read the book over summer vacation.

Two thumbs up !

I loved it too. I love King in general but I hadn't read him in a while. I love his wit and sarcasm.

This was a blast. Finished it a little while ago. I love time travel!

I thought this was a great book-went back and reread the ending 4 or 5 times!

I loved it too. I had not read Steven King for at least 10 years -- I was so scarred by "Pet Sematary", I swore I'd never read anything else by SK ever again.

BUT 11-22-63 was one of the New York Times best books of 2011, so I gave it a shot.

I'm glad I did. I really think King crosses over into "Lit-truh-chuh" with this one.

The theme in particular that appealed to me was trying to change the past -- and how the past doesn't want to be changed. ... And that things happen for a reason. Thought-provoking themes for those of us that find ourselves here on SI, would you agree?
