The master of horror and acclaimed author Stephen King delivers another massive tome with the genre-bending, 11/22/63. Jake Epping, a recently divorced high school English teacher, travels back in time to try and prevent the event that changed a nation: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The sci-fi, romance and thriller genres are entwined in this story that explores the impact a single person can have on the course of history. King’s 11/22/63 is an intoxicating novel, accurately exploring history as it happened — while probing into the conspiracy of what could have happened, and readers won’t be able to put it down.
