Second, it's Stephen King. I haven't read anything by him in YEARS. Haven't really been interested in him either. I loved IT, The Shining, Skeleton's Crew and a few other stories along the way. Thanks to him, I am still scared of clowns, fog and semi trucks.
I wanted a grand story. Something different. Something rich. And folks I know said this was absolutely wonderful.
I am half way done, hence the Part 1 review. 15 discs in and I am riveted.
I love the whole concept of it all. Man gets sent on a time traveling mission to erase the bad of the past, most importantly the assassination of JFK. That's the base of the story but SO much else happens along the way. Jake (his present self) grows to be quite comfortable in his past self as George. The people he meets. The love he finds. The others he gets to save.
Though at times a little meandering, like typical King, it comes back around and you do see how each piece is part of a giant puzzle.
Anyone out there brave this one? Listen or read?
It only took me 2 weeks to get through the first half. I'm hoping the second half will go as quick!
Happy Reading (or listening) and as always, thanks for stopping by!
