Reading Stephen King
I never thought I'd say this but I'm so enjoying my first ever Stephen King novel, 11/22/63. I'm having a blast and I don't want it to end. With tons of books on my To Be Read pile it's rare to just want to savor a novel and take it slow but that's exactly how I'm feeling with this book because it's fantastic so far. The premise of the novel is what initially attracted me - man travels back in time to prevent the Kennedy assassination and thus change the course of history. With such a plot you wonder how an author can pull this off but King does just that and with such panache. He is obviously a born writer because his prose flows naturally. It's no wonder he's so prolific. I'm only at 50% of this 800 plus page novel but here's hoping this book lives up to the hype. I'll be back with a full review once I've finished it. In the meantime, if you have read Stephen King then which novels would you recommend?
