11/22/63 by Stephen King


High school teacher Jake Epping is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. An old former night-school student is on his death-bed and confides in Jake that he has discovered in the pantry of his diner, a portal back in time to 1958. He then enlists Jake to travel back and prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Who could resist that?!

Stephen King takes an already familiar and popular science-fiction concept and turns it into one of his best novels, a wonderful story that transcends the genre. It's at the same time an irresistibly exciting time-travel adventure, a nostalgic look back at the Sixties, and a beautiful love story. When King is firing on all cylinders like this and hits the mark, he hits it hard, proving that he's among the very best.
