Description

One of the Ten Best Books of The New York Times Book Review
Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize
Soon to be a miniseries from Hulu starring James Franco


ON NOVEMBER 22, 1963, THREE SHOTS RANG OUT IN DALLAS, PRESIDENT KENNEDY DIED, AND THE WORLD CHANGED. WHAT IF YOU COULD CHANGE IT BACK?

In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King—who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer—takes readers on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

It begins with Jake Epping, a thirty-five-year-old English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching GED classes. He asks his students to write about an event that changed their lives, and one essay blows him away—a gruesome, harrowing story about the night more than fifty years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a sledgehammer. Reading the essay is a watershed moment for Jake, his life—like Harry’s, like America’s in 1963—turning on a dime. Not much later his friend Al, who owns the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to the past, a particular day in 1958. And Al enlists Jake to take over the mission that has become his obsession—to prevent the Kennedy assassination.

So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson, in a different world of Ike and JFK and Elvis, of big American cars and sock hops and cigarette smoke everywhere. From the dank little city of Derry, Maine (where there’s Dunning business to conduct), to the warmhearted small town of Jodie, Texas, where Jake falls dangerously in love, every turn is leading eventually, of course, to a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and to Dallas, where the past becomes heart-stoppingly suspenseful, and where history might not be history anymore. Time-travel has never been so believable. Or so terrifying.

    I have read this book twice, maybe three times now, I never get tired of it. Every time I start into it, I have a hard time putting it dow. Absolutely one of my all time favorite books. Stephen King could not have written this any better!
  • Long but very well written

    Believe it or not, this was my first Stephen King novel. Besides the length, it was a very well written story. And I never saw the end coming. I thought I knew the ending but then there were a lot of pages left. Surprising ending. Well worth the read. Just don't expect to read it in one sitting. LOL
  • Fabulous.....

    This is most certainly one of the most interesting, engaging, and downright fantastic books I have ever read. It kept me hooked all of the way through and I couldn't put it down. This adventure is one for the history books for sure. Now I'm looking into a new genre, time travel stories! Looking forward to Time and Again by Jack! Thanks Mr. King.
