On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? The author's new novel is about a man who travels back in time to prevent the JFK assassination. In this novel that is a tribute to a simpler era, he sweeps readers back in time to another moment, a real life moment, when everything went wrong: the JFK assassination. And he introduces readers to a character who has the power to change the course of history. Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the students, a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night fifty years ago when Harry Dunning's father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer. Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk. Not much later, Jake's friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane, and insanely possible, mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake's new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake's life, a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time.… (mais)

    American Tabloid por James Ellroy (glwebb)
    glwebb: If you liked 11/22/63 then American Tabloid should be right up your street. A very snappy, complicated, twisted look at the Kennedy Presidency and assassination. Ellroy dishes up a counterfactual history that seems almost too real to be anything other than the secret truth.… (mais)

    mene: Both books are about time travel through a kind of portal. In both books, the time traveller finds love on the other side, but the effects of the time travel and the way it works are different. In King's book, the time traveller also actively tries to change history, while in Gabaldon's book, the time traveller uses her knowledge of future events a lot less actively.… (mais)

Time traveler attempts to prevent the assassination of United States President John F. Kennedy.

I liked this book very much. It got a little slow in the middle, but it was worth it for all of the time travel-related discussions at the end. ( )

1st ever Stephen King book I've read and liked it. Don't know how it compares to the rest of his work, but the idea of time traveling always makes a good story. It's also one of the few fiction books I've read in the last few years, and I found it very enjoyable, perhaps because it's based on the historical event. My only complaint is that I had figured out the end within the first 100 pages - even though you go back in time to prevent a terrible thing from happening, perhaps other terrible things, or _MORE_ terrible things will happen based on your meddling. That, of course, is what our narrator finds out for himself, leading him to realize that hindsight isn't always 20/20. Loved King's descriptions of life in the US in the late 50's and 60's ("The land of universal smoking.") and how the narrators car only gets to 90K miles before it's done for. Glad that King takes the time during the book to talk about how polite and trusting people are - unless you happen to find yourself as a minority. Especially in the deep south. Highly recommended to historical fiction fans! ( )

Maine high school teacher, Jake Epping, is led to a "rabbit hole" that when entered took him to another time period. The man who told him about it wanted him to go back to November 1963 and stop Lee Harvey Oswald from assassinating Kennedy in Dallas. This he discovered alters history with many unintended consequences such as how would Kennedy have handled the Vietnam War and if mishandled what would history have looked like.

All is speculation by King but fun to read, Took me 200 pages to get into this novel and the further I went the more intriguing it became. One does learn a great deal of the history of the event. ( )

Whenever I’m in the mood to read a long book, it’s always a struggle to find the right one. When you’re reading 500+ pages, you want to be sure that you’re not wasting your time. While Stephen King novels are a hit or a miss for me, I thoroughly enjoyed 11/22/63!

In my opinion, you have to be a talented author to write a book over 800 pages and not lose your readers. I was certainly invested throughout the entirety of 11/22/63. The story was slow, but didn’t necessarily feel like it was dragging. I also think longer books can be advantageous because there is more room to develop characters.

I would not recommend reading 11/22/63 if you are in a reading slump, but it is the perfect book to read over time. It’s nice to read a little every day because I felt more invested in the story.

Additionally, this book had elements that appeal to many different readers. The time travel aspect is ideal for Sci-Fi lovers, while the time period is perfect for readers who prefer historical fiction.

Overall, a pretty good read! ( )

It all adds up to one of the best time-travel stories since H. G. Wells. King has captured something wonderful. Could it be the bottomlessness of reality? The closer you get to history, the more mysterious it becomes. He has written a deeply romantic and pessimistic book. It’s romantic about the real possibility of love, and pessimistic about everything else.

It is virtually not assimilable to our reason that a small lonely man felled a giant in the midst of his limousines, his legions, his throng, and his security. If such a nonentity destroyed the leader of the most powerful nation on earth, then a world of disproportion engulfs us, and we live in a universe that is absurd.
