Will You Read: 11/22/63 by Stephen King?
Synopsis: High school English teacher, Jake Epping, has discovered a portal to the past and intends to completely alter history by preventing President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. It is, after all, his dying friend Al’s final request. While back in time, Jake takes on a high school teaching job in Jodie, Texas under the pseudonym “George.” Would a time travel novel be complete without a love interest? Enter Sadie Dunhil. Sadie is a fellow teacher and she and Jake are in love, but she doesn’t really know why he’s in Texas or who he really is. Can a love like theirs ever be? To what lengths must Jake go to keep President Kennedy alive? Will Jake succeed? If he does, how will this change the future?
What reviewers have to say: Nothing yet, but Jonathan Demme has already optioned the rights to the book.
My gut reaction: Absolutely. And when I’m done, I’ll be ready to compare it to Demme’s flim.
