11/22/63 is by Stephen King. This epic novel centers around Jake Epping, who is convinced by an ailing friend to travel through a "rabbit hole" in time back to 1958 and prevent the assassination of J.F.K. in Dallas on 11/22/63. His friend Al found the time portal in his diner, but was diagnosed with lung cancer and was physically unable to complete his "mission". Jake takes the name of George Amberson and sets out to change the future. As he moves through the past, he discovers that the "past is obdurate" and resists change. Even if he is able to kill Oswald and prevent the assassination will history be changed for better or worse? A fascinating intense novel that really takes you back to the world as it existed in the late 50's - early 60's.

Ratings: Adult - 9 out of 10 - P (profanity) - V (violence) - AC (mature thematic content).
