That is the title to a new Stephen King novel coming out later this year and it is about time travel. 11/22/63 is about being given the option to change something, this being the assassination of John F. Kennedy. I’m pretty excited about this, if you know me, I love time travel. I’ve been obsessed with it since seeing Back to the Future.
“11/22/63” looks like it could be a fun read, I may even put it on my Christmas list for 2011, but 960 pages! Ohh man! That’s the same reason why I didn’t even bother with King’s Under the Dome novel, it was like a freaking encyclopedia! But I’ve been on a reading kick for the last few months. Slowly but surely I get through books. I don’t dive head first into things. I’m on my third book this year and I just finished “A Big Little Life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog” by Dean Koontz and I really want to write a review about it.
Anyway, back to “11/22/63”, read below for a better synapsis of the story from Joblo:
