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.

    Story
    "Brilliantly tense, involving, and addictive to listen to"

    Just finished, after 30 long hours in bits and bobs between long car journeys but really really enjoyed the listen. Narration by Craig Wasson is impeccable and you can really feel him as Jake. Strangely our final listen has coincided with the program being aired on Fox but I'm so glad we listened / read this first because the TV show doesn't do the story justice at all.

    The story itself is very thought provoking and engaging, and prompts lots of discussion about the concepts of time and outcomes and what if. Great book

    "Totally absorbing from the first page!"

    A cracking book, characters you really feel for, storyline that twists and turns and you really don't know what is going to happen. The historical context is described so well I felt I was breathing in 1960s USA air. The reader is superb, the different voices he uses pulls out the characters and makes them real. Wish it wasn't over and think a 2nd reading will be in order when enough time has gone by that I have forgotten some of it. Wish I could time travel back to start it all over again 😀

    "Absorbing, and totally fascinating."

    Wonderfully read, this is a book where I feel I know the characters, and I am sad to have to leave the world of the 1960s behind.
    A thought provoking listening experience.
    Marvelous.

    "Best audio book yet"

    Brilliant story writing enhanced by amazing narration. I think this is the first book I have come across that I believe to be better in audio form.

    Story
    "I never thought Stephen King was for me - this was"

    I have only ever associated Stephen King with horror but Peter May's recommendation via audible encouraged me to try this. Hard to know what to say without giving away the plot (I am appalled at how many reviewers do that). This is a time travel, politically connected novel with a really nice love story threading its way through. It's a long haul and I wasn't always sure why some of the detailed reconnaissance in regard to Lee Harvey Oswald was actually necessary. But I have lived and breathed this book for the past week on my headphones and yes I did see some of the ending coming but that didn't mean I shed less tears at the end. First Rate.

    "Not Kings best."

    I feel he could have really gone somewhere with this book. what if Jake/George stay and prevent every disaster see how the world changes. Martin Luther King, Lennon, 9/11......
    still worth a listen and its a great performance by the narrator his name eludes me at the moment.
