11/22/63: A Novel By Stephen King

I have read Stephen King since Salem’s Lot in 1978 (I had to backtrack for Carrie),  so saying I am a fan is an understatement.  His latest novel, 11/22/63, held my interest to the same degree as his first novel.  Time travel, JFK, writing, love, obsession, not to mention Derry and some old acquaintances from ITwhat isn’t there to love?

As usual, it’s a very long novel and some might consider it too fat in some sections, but I adore a book I can totally forget myself in and don’t mind the length or the sub-stories, since they only contribute to the characters development in my opinion.  The protagonist isn’t exactly heroic but he and the people he cares about were important to me while I was reading and that is what I love about King – he makes you care.  He is a fantastic story teller and a master craftsman.

    I’m a King fan too, from way back! I get my books from my local public library, but I haven’t “read” a book in years–I listen to recorded books! I actually like someone telling me a story, but I miss handling the book, and I don’t always remember the book titles all that well.

      I haven’t ever listened to an audio book, isn’t that odd? I have always been a book worm and my basement is full of books. Nowadays I’m all about the Kindle though, I rarely buy paper books anymore. I didn’t think I’d ever get past the “have to have a real book” thing but its amazing how quick that vanished when I realized how pleasant the Kindle was and how I could have my whole collection with my everywhere 🙂
