10.04.12 Finally tackled this behemoth about a guy who goes back in time to save Kennedy. It's so long because practically every minute of his time travel is described. I liked it ok. I mean at this point I'm not sure Stephen King can write a book that I downright hate. Even the books like Blaze and Cell are really well-written and have an expert sense of flow. But I didn't really love this one either. The large romance part of it was nice but there's this huge plot device hanging over every page and I really couldn't see it going more than one way. For the most part anyway, so when it came time to do the duty, any tension was kind of deflated for me. Still, with a book this big there's plenty to like. His description of the past is as vivid as can be, and he throws in tons of little touches reminding us how it was better back then. For the most part anyway. He managed to avoid a lot of the logic traps usually associated with time travel until the end and even then it was a nice way to think of things that could've been way less interesting. I liked it.
