    I'm totally the same way, I get nostalgic about big band music, crooners from the 50's and 60's. It's music for the soul, and I don't think it has anything to do with age.

    Wow, I'm not sure what I thought when I requested what I did, but I am truly naive enough that it wasn't this. I'm sorry that this is a part of human nature you have to witness. Or for that poor woman to experience.

  3. Well, I personally felt let down by the story. I was salivating thinking (incorrectly of course), this would be a story of what happened when Kennedy had survived. The disappointment was my fault.

    Loved the warm fuzzies I got from the story, though. Classic King.

    FYI: He was wordy too.

    At the time I was looking for a good story and I knew just who would have one there for me. Love, love, loved that book, and as I recall just how much I enjoyed reading it, I rank it as one of my all time favorites.

    I can understand people being bothered by mistakes, because SK's stories are so well-written and draw the reader into the story to the point that they immerse themselves in the story and start living it. When a mistake or plot hole comes up, it interferes with the ability to immerse oneself in the "reality" of the story, and it becomes a distraction. At least that's the way it is from my perspective.

    The future he was in was not necessarily the same one that he was in originally. The watchers at the factory portal couldn't keep track of all the differences and they went crazy.

    I've found a few and I drove myself crazy trying to figure them out.

    Hi, HannesGM!
    My point is that:

    IMHO About 70% of readers would never came to any message board in case the final was positive. BTW, the novel is extremely catchy, especially for impressible persons like me, but... The main reason i came here - is unstoppable necessity for discussion about the final and it conclusions. I believe i'm not alone in that. It's like a story catches you from the first page, then it brings you through the whole plot: sometimes it moves fast as a jet missile - and you get amount of thrill and suspence, but then you feel yourself comfortable again, drowning in vivid life of 60's together with main characters. The last wave, softly knocking you down - is a bittersweet final. It gives you a chance to think. Happy ends usually leaves you happy, that is why you'll forget the story so soon unlike the final we're actually had.
