I just finished Stephen King's 11/22/63. I picked it up from the library on Tuesday afternoon, began reading it yesterday morning, and that's how I've been spending my free time since then. I don't read a lot of King (horror isn't a genre that attracts me), but this -- utterly captivating. I have a perverse attachment to the 50s/60s (was raised on that music and television from the era), so the sheer amount of immersive detail King threw in would have thrilled me, even if the storytelling wasn't so compelling. There's a subtle shade of horror and anticipation throughout the book, and the ending...
Suffice it to say, I think it tops my list of King books. I wonder if Christopher has read it, given the time-travel angle.
I love Stephen King. I have not read that one yet. His body of work is so diverse I think that the label of horror novelist doesn't fit. he writes such interesting characters and stories. I really like Duma key. Have you read that one?
