11/22/63 by Stephen King

Well, it only took me 2-1/2 week to finish this book, less time than I thought. But those last few hundred pages fly by when you want to know what's going to happen.

If you haven't read 11/22/63, do! This was one of the most original ideas and executed novels I've read in a long time. Surprising doesn't describe it. Original. Fascinating. Thought provoking. And a few dozen more adjectives might start to do it justice.

I was especially impressed with the detail from 1958 to 1963. I was around for most of that time but very young, so I don't know firsthand how accurate ol' Steve was, but I have a feeling, pretty. 

Have you read this book? Are you going to?

  1. I'm currently reading it. I love the idea, too, although I think the beginning could be a little less detailed and a little more gripping so that the reader could plunge into the main part of the plot faster.

    1. I hear ya. I liked it from beginning to end though. SK is an excellent writer.
