Open Book: 11/22/63, by Stephen King
A  confession to the reader: Prior to reviewing 11/22/63 I had  never read a Stephen King novel. This was not due to literary snobbery.  Many friends whose judgment I respect admire some of his books. Perhaps  King’s tendency to write long — his latest characteristically weighs in  at 849 pages — has deterred me. But this epic of time travel on the part  of one Jake Epping, a 35-year-old Maine high school teacher who finds  himself transported back to 1958 and spends five years meditating how to  stop Lee Harvey Oswald from assassinating the president, is too curious  a concept to pass by. You can always get my attention on the subject of  Kennedy’s assassination.
