Publisher Description

This Enhanced eBook Edition contains a 13-minute film, written and narrated by Stephen King and enhanced with historic footage from CBS News, that will take you back—as King’s novel does—to Kennedy era America.

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? Stephen King’s heart-stoppingly dramatic new novel is about a man who travels back in time to prevent the JFK assassination—a thousand page tour de force.

Following his massively successful novel Under the Dome, King sweeps readers back in time to another moment—a real life moment—when everything went wrong: the JFK assassination. And he introduces readers to a character who has the power to change the course of history.

Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the students—a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer. Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk.

Not much later, Jake’s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane—and insanely possible—mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, 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.

A tribute to a simpler era and a devastating exercise in escalating suspense, 11/22/63 is Stephen King at his epic best.

King of the Bobos ,

great book, cool video

I just finished reading this book and I loved it overall. Couldn't put it down for the past few days. I watched the 13-minute video and thought it was a nice compliment to the reading experience. It's narrated by Stephen King and includes a lot of archival footage and photos. Shows how much research King did for the novel. Definitely worth two bucks in my opinion. I can't wait to see this as a feature film. Thanks Mr. King!

11/22/63

I laughed, I cried, I cheered, I hollered! Mr. King grabs me by the collar and tosses me chin deep into his story - and I go willingly. My wife worries about me when SK takes me from our world into his. A page-turner? I didn't turn the pages, I burned through the pages of 11/22/63 and loved all 48 years of this wonderfully crafted journey. Do NOT start this book if you have ANYTHING else to do for a couple of days!

My former favorite, The Stand, may have just handed over its crown to George and Sadie. Thank you SK!
