11/22/63 by Stephen King

11/22/63

Stephen King’s** 11/22/63** is a perfect, almost supernatural, blend of Fiction and Non-Fiction.

The Fiction part is evident when the main character, Jake Epping, travels back in time to the Dallas of 1963. Yes, the book starts far into the future when Time Travel is possible, and Jake, obsessed with Lee Harvey Oswald, believes he can somehow stop the assassination.

The Non-Fiction element shows in the prodigious amount of research that went into the writing of this novel, as the author faithfully recreates the look and feel of Dallas in the early '60s. Stephen King interviewed bystanders who were in Dallas as JFK's motorcade passed by. He was also a regular visitor to the Dallas Public Library, reading hundreds of Dallas newspapers on microfiche to get a feel for the times, and to research almost every step Oswald took as he planned his assassination. You can almost see the Dallas Streets of 1963 as you are reading this engaging, engrossing novel and feel the tension build as JFK's motorcade slowly makes it way to the Texas Book Depository.

Does Jake see Oswald as he haunts the streets of Dallas? Is he able to stop the assassination? Is Jake Epping about to change the course of History forever?

You have to read this book to find out!

If you do read it, be sure to read King's Afterword as he shares his thoughts on who really shot JFK, and he reveals his own analysis of Lee Harvey Oswald.
