Plot Summary

A high school teacher (Jake/George) is given the opportunity to change history (i.e. prevent JFK’s assassination) by going back in time and faces tough dilemmas about the ripple effects of past events on the future.

My Thoughts

11/22/63 is one of my favorite books of the past few years. Don’t be scared away by 11/22/63′s time travel premise, even though it seems cheesy. Very quickly, King had me believing wholeheartedly in the world of Jake/George and enthralled with the story and characters. Don’t expect a run-of-the-mill Stephen King novel a la Misery or Pet Sematary. This book is on my All-Time Favorites, Book Club Recommendations, Time to Kill (it’s almost 900 pages!), and Books for Guys lists.
