 NOMINATED FOR A 2012 LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK PRIZE Dallas, 11/22/63: Three shots ring out. President John F. Kennedy is dead. Life can turn on a dime—or stumble into the extraordinary, as it does for Jake Epping, a high school English teacher in a Maine town. While grading essays by his GED students, Jake reads a gruesome, enthralling piece penned by janitor Harry Dunning: fifty years ago, Harry somehow survived his father’s sledgehammer slaughter of his entire family. Jake is blown away . . . but an even more bizarre secret comes to light when Jake’s friend Al, owner of the local diner, enlists Jake to take over the mission that has become his obsession—to prevent the Kennedy assassination. How? By stepping through a portal in the diner’s storeroom, and into the era of Ike and Elvis, of big American cars, sock hops, and cigarette smoke. . . . Finding himself in warmhearted Jolie, Texas, Jake begins a new life. But all turns in the road lead to a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald. The course of history is about to be rewritten . . . and become heart-stoppingly suspenseful. In Stephen King’s “most ambitious and accomplished” (NPR) novel, time travel has never been so believable. Or so terrifying.

The past is obdurate. The past harmonizes with itself. I saw the mini-series based on this book before reading/listening to the book, so I was spoiled on much of the major developments. Still I enjoyed this book--probably not any less than I would have unspoiled. (I can't know for sure since I...

4.5 Mr. King is a Genius
Frustration ! OMg I was inner screaming at these time traveler to move, act, jump, run, think, run, run, or just do it now, through the whole story. it was a bit overwhelming with all the time line crossovers and realignments etc, but Mr. King hit a home run with this book. It just boggles the mind ...

Good story. Stephen King pulled me in, destroyed my heart, put it back, and ripped it back. A little less tied in with his others, Takuro Spirit, but a good read. Much of the stalking of Lee Harvey I could do without, but great character development. Much of it expected, some not.

I am a little bit embarrassed to admit that this is the first Stephen King book I have ever read (aside from Rose Madder which I began reading when I was about 11 until my mother asked me before bed one night "what's this about, honey" and I described it in great detail and she immediately vetoed th...
