Fabulous - classic King,
This review is from: 11.22.63 (Kindle Edition)
I'm a massive Stephen King fan and would probably give him five stars if he wrote the blurb on loo roll wrappers but 11.22.63 is amazing. Beautifully written, the story weaves itself towards its climax and pulls the reader along for the ride. The characters are believable and sympathetic and Jake's dilemma is a heart-wrenching one. You cannot avoid asking yourself what you would do in his shoes.
King's best books, of which this is most assuredly one, do something to me that no other writer's work can do. When I get to the half way point, I have to fight between the urge to read as fast as I can to find out what happens and my desire to slow the whole process down because I just don't want it to end. King's books make me want to stay in them forever. Of course, I can always go back and read it again but unfortunately in the real world, everytime is NOT a reset!
Loved this, buy it, read it, savour it - I'm jealous! Keep it up my man!

Your review made me smile! Much better than some of the stuffy, serious ones, but still made me want to buy the book!

Cait, I'll add a hearty second to HarleyGirl's comment, and also tell you that you just expressed what I feel about some few novels - I hate for them to end, because I feel a sense of loss when they're finished, no matter how they ended.
Although I haven't yet read 11.22.63, I personally remember that day. Having a keen interest in time travel stories, and loving Stephen King as I do, I can't wait to read it. Thanks much for your enthusiastic review!
