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.

What the Critics Say

“This new epic from Stephen King rates among the best he’s written – no small praise for the man who wrote Carrie, It, The Stand and Under the Dome.” (Trucking News)

    "Did not want this book to end!"
    What did you like most about 11.22.63?

    There were two amazing storytellers at work here. Stephen King as the writer, and Craig Wasson who effortless and un-noticeably brought such a huge range of characters to life, and took you on a journey that you simply wanted to go on and on.


    What about Craig Wasson’s performance did you like?

    I wasn't conscious of being read to - the range of accents, inflections and nuances brought in to the story made it more than mere story-reading.

    Story
    "Rewarding and enjoyable. Kennedy & Time Travel, a Teacher and a love story. It's got everything!"

    Loved this book in fact is go so far to say that it's blown me away and I'd comfortably put it in my top 3 of all time.
    to be clear yes it's about Kennedy, it's actually more about lee Harvey Oswald and it's about time travel.
    Now whilst that was enjoyable what is is also is an intriguing story of one mans travel adventures not to a place as such (although it's nearly all set in Maine and Texas) but to a time ...1958-1963. The events that take place make it a long story as the detail is great but it's also so full of the sort of detail that made me feel like I was living the same life.
    Given I listened to it as an audiobook I felt the story was therefore perfect for this format.
    The narration was fantastic with nearly every character identifiable by merely their unique voice provided by the narrator which is surely a tremendous feat given the number of characters we meet.
    All in all 10/10!!!

    "Time travel with a twist"

    Another great Stephen King story, well researched and captivating right through. it is always fun to read different views on time travel and the consequences and the view as seen by Jake is definitely an interesting one.

    "Above average time travel novel"

    An excellent book that opens the debate on the consequences of time travel coupled with fascinating insights into the prevailing conspiracy theories surrounding the JFK assassination. Well read, in such a way that the listener is continuously led on to the next event. Right at the top of Mr King's honour roll.
    Thank you!

    "Cracking"
    What made the experience of listening to 11.22.63 the most enjoyable?

    Having read the book this added extra dimensions


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 11.22.63?

    The first time our hero steps through the larder


    Which character – as performed by Craig Wasson – was your favourite?

    The hero


    Any additional comments?

    Ther were some tedious bits, always will be in a book this long. The description of the months spent by Lee Harvey Oswald leading up to the big day did drag on a bit. But as always with Stephen King the clever twists and explanations of paradoxes were brilliant

    Story
    "Clever idea hiding behind a long, dull story."
    What did you like best about 11.22.63? What did you like least?

    Interesting idea but didn't quite hang together or, disappointingly in my mind, fully address the theory which might have been quite clever/interesting. The entire story seemed to play out at about half the pace it should have with no obvious reason. I only made it to the end because I hoped something would come up to justify the great length; it never did. The narration was fine aside from the Russian accents which sounded more like Arnold Schwarzenegger than any Russian I've ever met. Overall pretty forgettable.

    "Gripping!"

    Just like Under The Dome this book is huge and very daunting to read! That's why I started to listen to it instead. It's much easier to listen to it and it's not as heavy!

    The story has you gripped and keeps you listening. It's not a big thrilling ride but a gentle amble along with occasional thrills. It's interesting enough to keep you thinking about what's going to happen next.

    The characters are well thought out and so real. Yes the idea of time travel is theoretical but you can easily believe it.

    I'm 40% of the way through and I've got to the point where I'm on edge wanting to listen all day! I can't wait to see where the story takes me and what happens to Jake/George!

    Story
    "Very enjoyable story"
    Where does 11.22.63 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Am new to audiobooks, but this is one of my favourites. I've listened to around 80hours of audiobooks since finishing this one, now relistening to see how the experience changes. Really enjoying it on the second listen as well.


    What does Craig Wasson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The book is well performed; the characters are voiced well, and their emotional inflections are not over done. After a while, I wasn't hearing the accent just the story, which would seem to be a good indicator of the quality of the story and the performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Couldn't listen to it all in one sitting - there's just too much story.
