11/22/63 is a novel about a time-traveler named Jake Epping who attempts to travel back and stop the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
This is a really great novel. Stephen King has created a fantastic and unique time travel mechanic, which really throws a different spin on what we usually run into in time travel stories, and even has a twist near the end that causes the reader along with the protagonist to change the way they had learned to look at things. The historical content is well-researched, immersive and detailed. King’s protagonist is a relatable and interesting character, and many of the other characters are splendidly fleshed-out and memorable.
Larry Macklin is a criminal investigator in Florida. He had no idea he would ever be investigating the sheriff let alone his father who happens to be the sheriff. There are secrets, arson, and murder. Will Larry be the next victim?
