About this deal

Jake decides to move according to the plan and try to save the president, he also tries to save Harry’s family from being killed, but he soon discovers that changing time has consequences of equal value as changing past events. is a science fiction time traveling book that shows an alternate version of history where the change of a past event ruins the fabric of time. With the jaw-dropping realistic depiction of events and an in-depth definition of characters, ’11/22/63′ holds its place as a sci-fi masterpiece. Not just because it´s US politics from decades ago I never knew that much about, but also because the postmodernist realization that everything has been corrupted made me choose irony and sarcasm as the only possible responses to protect my, already balancing on the cliffs of insanity, brain. For someone prone to US history, there could be obvious or hidden innuendos, easter eggs, and goodies regarding the whole big, political global strategy real time and life game. It´s one of the new Oh – anyway, you came from the very near future and you decided the most important thing to do was to stop me writing one particular rev Jake Epping is a recently divorced high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, earning extra money teaching a GED class.

Don’t cry. I’m sorry. It’s just…. This doesn’t seem like it was thought through very well, Jake. I mean, you seem like a nice guy. I’ll admit that it sounds like you have good intentions, but you know what the road to hell is paved with.” I was in a college class where our teacher (an otherwise fun and engaging lecturer and knowledgeable professor – and published author) said something to the effect that King’s work was “good enough for the working class”. The professor’s own novels would be prized by a more discerning literary palate and he would savor his peer recognition.As the date of the Kennedy assassination approaches, Jake gambles on a boxing match and wins, gaining the attention of local businessman Akiva Roth, who goes to Jake's house in Dallas with two associates and has them beat Jake nearly to death. As a result, Jake loses his memories of Lee Harvey Oswald and spends weeks in the hospital and in a rehabilitation center. After remembering Al's notebook, he retrieves it and forms a plan to kill Oswald in the Texas School Book Depository on the day of the assassination. He writes a letter to Sadie asking her not to try to find him for her safety. Sadie nevertheless finds him in Fort Worth and the two of them attempt to make it to Dallas in time. Along the way, they experience a bus accident and two car accidents, which Jake explains as the past trying to stop them. They arrive at the Depository just in time and Jake successfully prevents Oswald from shooting Kennedy. Secret Service members shoot Oswald dead, but not before Oswald shoots Sadie in the process; she dies in Jake's arms. Lovett, Jamie (February 12, 2015).

Stephen King | 11/22/63

Compared to other King? Well, the character development, interaction, and dialogue definitely felt like King. At places it felt like a Dark Tower spin off . . . maybe a little like The Talisman. There are direct references to some of his other novels ( specifically IT and Christine) that will make King fans feel nostalgic. But, in the end, I feel like the book is in a class all by itself that is not really like any other King book I have read before.The theme of this book is 'the past harmonizes' and Stephen drives this point home to good effect. It becomes it's own harmonic in the book and it helps to bring all the stories going on together. I'm telling you, this is a layered masterpiece from one of the most gifted writers of our time. He weaves historical fact with fiction with historical fiction with time travel with a love story for the ages. Al's method of time travel is a time portal he discovered in his diner's pantry, which he used to transport himself to 1958. Apart from short stories, this is the FIRST novel I have read by Stephen King. Yes, yes, yes, yes, I suppose someone's probably getting their hands upside down, but well, that's the way it is. I don't like horror and, although I know that not everything King writes is horror, it is an important part of his work. You may ask yourself how in the world did a wife beating, mental degenerate, and multiple country defecting (USA, RUSSIA and an attempt at Cuba) little shit like this
