What I Read Last Two Weeks
I really picked the perfect time to read it – in between projects. It only took me two weeks, compared to the four weeks I took to read Under the Dome. But then, 11/22/63 is a way better book. At least I think so.
Some people think his books are too long, that this could have been pared down to about 400 words (vs. the 850 it is). I say hogwash! Maybe he can go on a little long, but I love books with meat on them. Heck, I just love his writing.
This is a Stephen King book my husband could read (he hates horror). It involves time travel and has characters I really cared about. By page 600, I didn't want to put it down (It was hard going to sleep on Friday night and then going to the workshop on Saturday – all I did was think about that book – I nearly finished it that night, but couldn't keep my eyes open past 11:30. I finished it early Sunday morning).
It was a suspenseful read and even had a love story in there (yay!).
Have you read it yet? What did you think?
