Audacious Eleven is a reality podcast that ventures from Pagan spirituality and life empowerment to technology, entrepreneurship, love, sex, and fandom. This week the discussion is about what we’re watching, reading, etc., see and hear more after the jump.
Fifty years ago today President John F. Kennedy was taken from us by an assassin’s bullet. On this tragic anniversary, we’re going to take a look at the novel 11/22/63 by master storyteller Stephen King. In this tale of time travel, it poses the question that if you could, would you go back in time and save JFK? And if it was possible, would you be able to pull it off and how? Meet me after the jump, for my thoughts on the multiple award winning 11/22/63.
Just how good is Stephen King’s new time travelling epic novel 11/22/63? Well, for the first time in his career a King novel has made the New York Times list of the 10 Best Books of 2011. It only took him fifty-one tries. Safe to say, there’s something special about this one.
Ask anyone where they were on November 22, 1963, and I’m sure they can tell you. To date, I have you to meet anyone who was alive that day who didn’t know exactly where they were and what they were doing. The only similar experiences I can draw upon from my own lifetime were the death of Princess Diana on August 31, 1997 and the horrible sequence of events that ended in the tragedy of September 11, 2011. I feel the second of these is far more akin to the assassination of President Kennedy: horrible tragedy, worldwide effects, and, sadly, a hotbed of conspiracy theories.
