I got an audio copy of this essay for free and gave it a listen. You can also get the e-book for something like $0.99. Interesting point of view and definitely some great points made on guns and gun control.

11/22/63 by Stephen King

This book took me a couple months to get through because I listened to it on audio book at the gym and it’s loooong. 30 hrs and 44 mins! But I loved it. This was the best book I’ve read or listened to in quite a while. I loved the narration on the audiobook as well. On Audible, 3,500 people averaged a 4.5/5.0 rating, so if you don’t believe me…. :) And if you’re thinking that you’re not into Stephen King, gore or horror, this is not like that at all. There is an element of fantasy, time travel, but it’s not gory or scary. More historical. Lee Harvey Oswald and JFK.

The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer: My Life at Rose Red by Ellen Rimbauer

I don’t know what prompted it, but this book had been on my Amazon wishlist for years. I thought it was a Stephen King book and I hadn’t read a Stephen King book for years, so I ordered it for $0.75 off of Half.com recently. It was not that great, IMO. After I read the book I did some reading up on it and found out that it was written by Ridley Pearson as part of a promotional marketing campaign for Stephen King’s Rose Red television miniseries. That explains a lot. Not that the book can’t stand on it’s own, but I just didn’t believe it and a lot of it is more trashy romance book rather than thriller.
