Diese Empfehlung kam von einem Freund. Ich hatte noch nie was von Stephen King gelesen. Die Idee zu der Geschichte: sensationell gut!!! Die Umsetzung eine Katastrophe. Müssen unsere amerikanischen Freunde denn immer so dick auftragen? Hier wäre weniger Drumherum so viel mehr gewesen. Nach gut der Hälfte gabe ich das Buch entnervt in die Ecke gelegt.

Impresionante. Un auténtico viaje al pasado y sin duda, una de las mejores historias actuales sobre viajes en el tiempo. Stephen King alcanza una perfección en este libro que no se ve manchada por los problemas que este género suele revestir. Una documentación muy cuidada, un análisis sagaz al principio del libro, de lo que sería el mundo si no se hubiese cometido el magnicidio, una narrativa extraordinaria, una pasión fuera de lo común y momentos para el recuerdo. Amor, nostalgia, pasión, humor y un gran final que no deja indiferente. Muy recomendable para todo aquel que le gusten las historias de verdad. Las Historias con H mayúscula.
