Although its ramifications are intricate, the seed of 11/22/63 is quite simple: A man named Jake Epping, living in Maine in 2011, finds a portal into the past (to September 9, 1958, at 11:58 AM, to be exact) and decides to travel back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald. As Epping navigates the five years between his arrival at the end of the 1950s and the fateful day in Dallas that gives this novel its name, King applies his usual attention to detail to vividly portray the vanished world his protagonist has entered, playfully using Epping’s foreknowledge of events to enliven the narrative. Filled with vivid details and fascinating implications regarding the dependencies of time and the rippling effects of any attempt to intervene in its flow, 11/22/63 is both spine-tingling and thought-provoking, a page-turning thriller and an exhilarating attempt to fathom what fiction can grasp.

If you could travel back in time to change anything, what would be the consequences. More thought-provoking that most. I loved this book.

A great adventure that subtly includes bits of other stories from King and culminates with an alternate ending to the JFK assassination story.
