I haven't read a Stephen King book in quite a while. I had pretty much given up, as it were. They were getting too, I'm not sure what. But this one is FABULOUS. Don't be put off by the over 800 pages-it goes by quickly. I was amazed at how much I liked this book. Who wouldn't want to go back in time and right a wrong? But what happens then? So well done. The Kennedy assassination has always interested me. Did Oswald really act alone? Was he a Lone Gunman? King's theories are fascinating-I haven't see the miniseries, but might just to see how they handled it. Great book-give it a read!
The stories of two children in Europe during WWII-one a young blind girl, and the other a German boy-told separately, but they do eventually come together. Haunting is the best word I can come up with.
So many characters in this book, so many stories. I love they way they all wind together. Took me awhile to figure out what was what and who was who, but it is truly beautiful when it all comes together. Just like the two previous books, this is a gem.
For the first time in a long time, I actually got a little misty eyed at the end of this book. I liked that the dog is the narrator-he is probably the most likable character in the book. This was a quick read-and even though I cried a little at the end, I enjoyed it.
Enjoyed it-what happens when you you find out not only is your husband dead, but he's been found murdered in a call girls apartment??? Not sure if I would have gone to all the trouble that Susie Gersten does to find her husband's killer (considering where he was found)-but it moved quickly and kept my interest.
I felt this story was quite sad, really. Rebecca Davitch realizes that maybe she is living the wrong life-but how to change it? Set in Baltimore, at the end of the 20th century, she is a woman who tries to please everyone, especially her family. When she starts to have doubts about the way her life has gone,---- *SPOILER ALERT* ---- she tracks down an old 'friend' to see if she did in fact make a mistake way back when. I think all, or at least most, 'middle-aged' women will identify with her- what if I'd done it differently?? Lots of characters,lots of family turmoil,a quick read.
