My favourite thing was the cool Sunliner car, googled it, gorgeous. I LOVE old classic American cars, they really built some absolute beauties. Cars today are soulless empty vessels (I'm so poetic! Unintentional). Anyway I'm about 3/4 of the way through and absolutely loving it. Can't put it down which is why I've not been on here. I'm not gonna read anymore posts as I don't want any spoilers but it's definitely one of Kings best novels.Hi. I'm not a fan of the horror genre, but I was fascinated to read 11-22-63, as it was one of the saddest and scariest days of my life (after the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, for which JFK had to bear a lot of blame, perhaps.). I very much enjoyed the book, and Stephen King's imaginings of the parallel universes generated by multiple trips to the past to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination.
My favorite thing in the whole book which really resonated with me was the outcome of the scenario where the hero foiled the assassination (at the expense of getting his girlfriend killed), but what followed from this was not nirvana but a post-apocalyptic world far worse than what the future turned out to be for the rest of us still here. Loved the noir sense of humor in that. It is just the "the universe is laughing behind your back" mentality that I share and love. Thank you, Stephen King, for a brilliant take on this "what if" fantasy. Wild, unpredictable and so much fun to read. Loved it.
