I was in the 11th grade when Kennedy was assassinated. King brought it all flooding into my brain. He really captured the times. ( )
Wow, forgot to review this when I finished...
Excellent book, a very long read, but it didn't feel like it. Wasn't a huge fan of the ending, but it worked it self out and was probably done as good as it could have been. Definitely worth the read, King fan or not!

Too long, knocked off a point for that. Otherwise an interesting premise.
I've always loved Stephen King's writing and imagination, but have steered clear of him in more recent years because of this vague feeling of having "outgrown" the fantasy elements of his books.
Um, stupid me.
Only King could take a pretty much done-to-the-hilt concept such as time travel and make it completely fresh and gripping and original.
Only King could weave in elements of supernatural and fantasy in such a way that I believe every word.
If this book is a departure from the typical King horror novel, then I say "DEPART!!!" While 11/22/63 may not be a literary or historical fiction masterpiece, it doesn't matter one whit. This story is about what would happen if someone went back in time and changed the course of history by thwarting the Kennedy assassination. It's also a love story.
I seriously think King could write romance novels or chick lit and make the whole genre seem fresh. He just has a way of writing that evokes a "movie in your head" kind of feel. I can see his books. And he doesn't shy away from the details - - even when they are gory or scary - - and those details just make his books come alive for me.
Just really enjoyed this book and am happy it was recommended to me directly. The Stand is one of my favorites of all time, and it feels good to return to reading a truly well told story.

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.

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.
