Book: 11/22/63

Author: Stephen King

Reviewer: Anna Snyder, Intern, NC LIVE

Jake Epping, a high school teacher, reads a story one of his GED-seeking students wrote about his horrible family history, and then finds out the local diner has a gateway to the past in it. Jake sets out to change the past, starting with preventing the crime his student’s father committed, and then takes over the mission to prevent JFK’s assassination. With good intentions (more civil rights progress, no Vietnam war), Jake finds that every change made in the past creates unexpected changes in the future. With incredibly in-depth details about the years leading up to JFK’s assassination, Lee Harvey Oswald’s life, and an interesting cast of characters, this book is one you cannot put down.
