About the Book :
The date 11.22.63 is an important one in world History. Stephen King`s latest book makes the reader think if American History could have been different. Would it possible to change history if the incidents were to turn out different?
Jake Epping is a thirty five year old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls. He earns some extra income teaching adults in the GED program. One of his students writes an essay- a gruesome first person story about an incident which took place 50 years ago. One night Harry Dunning`s father came home and killed his mother, his brother and his sister with a hammer. Harry escaped but was crippled for life as evidenced by his crooked gait.
Al is Jake`s friend who runs the local diner. He divulges a secret wherein he says that his storeroom is a portal to 1958. Much to his surprise; he enlists Jake on an insane and most improbable mission to prevent the Kennedy assassination. Thus begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK. His life is dappled by visions of luxury, of big American cars and sock hops and of a disturbed loner named Lee Harvey Oswald. Sadie Dunhill is the beautiful high school librarian who eventually becomes the love of Jake`s life. Will history be any different?
