From the publisher:
On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed forever. What if you could change it back? Stephen King’s heart-stoppingly dramatic new audiobook, 11/22/63, takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it. Narrated by Craig Wasson (Aleekah and the Bee, Malcolm X), this tour de force audiobook tells the story of Jake Epping, a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program when his life is turned upside down as he enters a portal to 1958 and finds himself on a mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination…
It has been a very long time since I’ve read any Steven King (I’m a big Firestarter) fan, but when I heard about 11/22/63 I knew I had to read it. I love this sort of alternative history, and coming from such a talent author as Steven King, I’m incredibly excited. I am almost equally intrigued by the audio production, I can’t wait to hear what Craig Wasson does with it. For a sneak peek of what he’ll do with it, listen to the audio clip below:
