Morning Meanderings…. NEVER Say Never
UP early – ready to go…. things to do…. things to do….
Do I feel better? For the most part, yes. Not 100% and I did just sneeze… but I am moving.
Do you have any of those authors you read and then one day you decide… never again? I had that with Stephen King. As a teen and early 20′s – LOVED just about everything he wrote. In fact between him and Dean Koontz…. my favorite genre at the time was dark mystery with a touch occasionally of horror. (My how times have a changed….LOL)
Then… at some point… his writing became just odd. I didn’t get it… I didn’t want to get it… and I gave up on King, never to be read again by me.
There’s that word never.
But who was to know that someday in the future that King would write something that would make me curious. Who among us seen 11-22-63 coming from this author? Not me…. and even when it did I was skeptical…. but I added it to my wish list anyway, just in case… and then the positive murmurs began.
The final selling point for me was Kathy from Bermuda Onion said she was listening to it and enjoying it very much. I knew then my next audible credit would go to this audio chunkster… 30+ hours of audio is a BIG commitment…. but I did it a couple of days ago and I am into the story and…
Not only so far has King impressed me with this story of going back in time to save Kennedy on that fatal day, it’s not cheesy weird. It’s actually something I can visualize… and I like it. It’s also smart and I have to tell you it is scoring big time with me. As in this story, a way has been found to go back in time, yet each consecutive time you go back it sets everything you have done previously back to the way it was. Basically – you have to do it right… and then never go back again. AND no matter how long you are in the past – when you return to the future only two minutes have past, errr.. in the future.
Looking for a good read or a good way to spend your audible credit that is worthy? I think…. this may very well be it. Treat yourself. Surprise yourself. Way to go King.
