Publisher's Summary

What if you could go back in time and change the course of history? What if the watershed moment you could change was the JFK assassination? 11.22.63, the date that Kennedy was shot - unless....

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.

With extraordinary imaginative power, King weaves the social, political and popular culture of his baby-boom American generation into a devastating exercise in escalating suspense.

    "Fantastic story, brilliantly read!"

    Every time I start a new audiobook I think I won't get used to the new performer. Particularly in long King novels, you get attached to the performer and reckon they're "the best". But, every time so far, the fears are unfouded. Craig Wasson is an outstanding narrator, bringing life to the characters and ensuring the page-turning story rips along. Thoroughly, totally recommended on all levels - the story is a joy.

    "Brilliant!"

    Love Kings work but was hesitant on getting this thinking it would be too Kennedy based but as usual King creates great characters and gripping story lines along with his usual twist of madness with the Card Man. Superb.

    "Excellent"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I don't think I would have the patience to read the book but listening to it was a delight! It would make a fantastic tv series,

    "Superb"

    My first contact with Stephen King's work, having never been a great fan of the horror genre, but I may have to re-think. This was a superb listening experience. A wonderfully-crafted piece that managed to thrill, evoke and even get sentimental without (quite) tipping over into mawkishness (although its a close-run thing occassionally.)

    Time travel is always a difficult concept to get hold of, but King has managed it brilliantly here, and his vision of pre-Vietnam America "feels" very authentic. His characters are very believable and one can easily empathise with the main protaganists.

    Its a very long book, and I got the feeling in the Jody scenes that King was rather "wallowing" in an idealised past, but hey, I just got in there and wallowed as well!!

    It made my lonely commute on cold January mornings fly-by. Sometimes I just didn't want to get there! Brilliantly read as well. Very strongly recommended.

    "11.22.63 Stephen King"

    Well this has got to be one of Mr Kings best by far very long but that is not unusual for stephen king lets face it!

    Its just so dam clever it draws you in and you cannot put this book down,be warned though its very emotional i could not stop crying wont give too much away and credit to the Narrator Craig Wasson one of the best Narrators by far.

    "Loved it"

    I love Craig Wasson, he's got such a voice for this. This is another incredible SK novel, I was a little unsure at first, thought it might be too heavy but it's not. Yes there is a real historical event it refers to but that is it, it's all novel otherwise. I loved it

    "An ingenius story masterfully told"

    This was the first Stephen King book I have read for many years and I enjoyed it very much. He crafts his characters with the brush of a grand master and the plot draws you in and keeps you hooked until you finish. I enjoyed reading about American history which I had little previous knowledge of and this added an extra dimension to my enjoyment of the story. The book's narrator did a wonderful job with the characterisations making the characters come to life wonderfully well. All in all a cracking read!
