I saw the first episode and it looks like it might be worth watching and look forward to the second episode.

imdb



11/22/63 is a novel by Stephen King about a time traveler who attempts to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy

I enjoyed the King novel right up to the final chapter which I found lacking.

Which version did you read?

King had it republished with an alternate ending.

Really? I am assuming the original ending since I have a very early copy (pre-order).

Just checked it out.

*SPOILERS*






















I was not happy with the nuclear holocaust timeline which does not appear to be changed.

All King novels are, at least, enjoyable until one gets toward the end. Then he just stops or writes something fast to end the tale. Maybe it has to do with deadlines or payment, who knows. I think he has great talent as a story teller but no sense of obligation to his readers to make a completed product. Because of this, I haven't wasted money on his half-written books since the 90s. (four seasons)

Ummm...I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode...not Mr. Kings usual genre...No Pennywise or Randall Flagg...just some harmless time travel...right...?

Thanks to Augustus the Mason in advance for...NOT...spoiling the story line for those of us who haven't read the novel yet...

No Cthulu, in 2063? Maybe he is into spiritual timetravelling? Like lovecraft?

Funny, I feel the same way. I get intrigued by the books and then the end flops. Cell was one of my favorites. I did like how at the end he went to have a dance with his love.

You should ask him however miniscule the chance he knows what it is you are trying to convey.

I have felt this way about King's books also.

I think he writes very well, and as long as he is writing, he drags you along with the story. His problem is that he has problems ending a story.

His books can go on forever, but the publishers obviously have a limit to how many pages his books can be, so it looks like they just have him cut the story off.

I've pretty much said that about EVERY Stephen King novel, LOL. That's why I prefer his short stories. He seems to know how to end those well.

There are quite a few of his books which I thought ended well, this was not one of them.

Yeah, right on. I've felt that way since at least the '80s. I can't even read his books any more. A good example is 'It' with that clown that'll make you pee your pants then it ends up being a lame a'%$% giant spider that couldn't scare my arachnophobic wife.

Also, I was very surprised and disappointed to see how King tows the official line on the Kennedy murder.
