IMO, the best King novel to date. I never in a million years would have thought I would ever say that considering how I feel about such books as The Stand, Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption, and Desperation. But 11/22/63 is my new favorite. By the end, it actually turned out to be one of those that pulls at your heart strings.

A+, 2 thumbs up, etc.

Good book.

It ran a little long - could have carved a couple of hundred pages off & it would have been just as good.

......AND???? it WAS Stephen King....you said it would not be him without being lengthy...did you not? Nothing was said about whether or not it could be your favorite.

That was a different part of the conversation. That was him talking to me about 11/22/63 (a novel). A King novel runs long. Since you brought up Shawshank, one could logically assume you were talking about it being one of my favorite of his stories since that had previously only been brought up under that context.

Great book....it came in the mail on 11/22/11.....I read it by Thanksgiving....

Mark 16: 16..."16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."

Acts 2: 38...."38And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

Acts 22: 16...."16And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name."

I Peter 3: 21...."21Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,"

The above Scripture is from the English Standard Version

Maybe so.

But those extra 200 pages are why I rarely read Stephen King.

Life's too short.
