This is an admirable attempt at writing a time travel story featuring the JFK Assassination. It also works as a good primer for anyone just coming into learning about the assassination, as the author has added copious footnotes for each of the statements that the based-on-real-people characters make, showing that he has done quite a lot of research into the Big Event. It makes one wish that Stephen King had done even half that much research prior to publishing his book about time travel and the JFK Assassination. But King took the easy way out.
As far as the writing itself goes, Fitton is no match for Stephen King, as he readily admits, and yet the story flowed well and I found it to be a real "page turner," and in the good way, not in the way one does when they are just trying to get it over with. There are some odd paragraph breaks that make things confusing, especially where dialogue is concerned, but it's hard to say why they appear; I was reading on a Kindle, and anyone who has reformatted a book for electronic format knows that the computers will create some unpleasant formatting surprises. The most common confusion happens during dialogues when character A is talking, then an action is described, and then character A continues talking, the book makes the second piece of dialogue a new paragraph, when the most common way of depicting such is to keep all of that dialogue in the same paragraph. This sometimes made it difficult to know who was speaking, as the new paragraph would normally indicate that character B was now speaking. The other problem is during conversations between more than two people: a little more "___," A said.
"___," B replied
"____," C interrupted.
would make the passages a lot less confusing, but instead the quotes are all left standing on their own and the reading process is slowed down by having to figure out which character is responsible for which statement - it's not always clear. But these are fairly minor quibbles, and once again I am not sure how much the software is responsible for the confusion.
But in summation, I enjoyed this book very much, and recommend it to anyone but the fervent Lone Nut Theorist, who will only read the book to argue with it. If you are at all interested in the JFK Assassination, or just want to read a new and interesting take on the time travel story, pick up a copy of 1963.
