Review: 11/22/63 by Stephen King

Jake Epping's life takes a drastic change when his friend Al shows him a way into the past through the back room of his restaurant. He also sends him into the past with a job to do. Save President Kennedy from being assassinated. Entering the past in 1958, he has some time to kill before then. Literally. 

He falls in love, saves some lives, and ends some others all while fighting against the past that doesn't want to change. And, well, maybe it shouldn't be. 
Once again I am blown away by a Stephen King book. Never a disappointing read when I pick up one of his books. Missing from this one are the monsters and gore that he is famous for, but still present is King's great storytelling, interesting characters and suspense. 

Can't wait to talk about this one with my father in law, who lent it to me. I want to hear his take on it. Not sure if he has read King before and he is slightly obsessed with the theory that LBJ was behind the assassination.

Happy Reading!

  1. I really need to get around to this one soon - everyone loves it.

    1. It was really good. And if you have read other books, it's fun to read where other characters show up in this story.
