Let me start by making a confession: I am not a fan of Stephen King. Yes, I know some of you are absolutely screaming at your computer right now, and the words you are screaming aren't able to be repeated around polite company. And that's okay because I understand where you're coming from. While I appreciate what King has done for the horror genre and writing in general, I've just never been able to get into his books. That was until I picked up 11/22/63. One word: Wow. Seriously, that just about sums it up. I literally could not put the book down. I had a stomach virus that kept me out of work and though I was miserable, my first thought was, "Hey, I can finish the book!!" The story just grabbed me and would not let go, so even when I wasn't reading I was thinking about reading, and what would happen next, and what had already happened. I loved the description of the late 50's and the town of Lisbon Falls and though there was so much more that I loved, I truly do not want to spoil it for anyone else and give even the slightest thing away. So, I'll just say that this book blew me away and that you really should go pick it up. Now.

Cher I'm also not a Stephen King fan but LOVED this one. It surprises me how many readers I meet that still haven't read it. It sticks with you for a long time after finishing it!

Crystal Craig I never used to be a SK fan either, but as I get older, I find myself appreciating his work, and I've started to read some of his books. He definitely has a way with words.

Jodie I've read quite a few of his books, and I have to say this one is definitely one my favorites of his. Glad you enjoyed it!
