I have mixed feelings about Stephen King’s 11.22.63. It’s a “what if?” novel – what if JFK was never assassinated, in this case. This is a fascinating idea for a novel, so kudos to King for that.
Here’s the blurb of the novel:
“King takes his protagonist Jake Epping, a high school English teacher from Lisbon Falls, Maine, 2011, on a fascinating journey back to 1958 – from a world of mobile phones and iPods to a new world of Elvis and JFK, of Plymouth Fury cars and Lindy Hopping, 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.”
