A Stephen King novel is always a treat. This one had an interesting theory to what if things were different for us that fateful American day. However, the results weren't always as good as they may have sounded.

My favorite book of 2012! It's been years since I've read anything by Stephen King, and then it was mostly horror stories that fueled teen summers. I'd forgotten: he can tell a great story. Wholly absorbing, rich in details, immediately compelling. I was sad to see it end.

This is an excellent departure for Mr. King. I was in grade school when John Kennedy was assassinated and can still remember with vividness the shock and sadness of the nation. Everyone knew that our lives and the path of this nation would never be the same. How many of us would jump at the opportunity to go back in time if we could alter that one single event. Of course things are seldom what they seem and changing the path of our collective future in such a critical way may be both astounding and frightening. Mr. King takes the reader on quite an enjoyable journey as the pages of his story unfold. The characters are multidimensional yet easy to relate to. Definitely a must read for anyone interested in time travel, politics, history, or the simple complexity of a novel that is too good to put down. Do yourself a favor and read this book. You will not be disappointed.

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 fathers 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 diners storeroom, and into the era of Ike and Elvis, of big American cars, sock hops, and cigarette smoke.... Finding himself in warmhearted Jodie, 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.
