On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? Stephen King’s heart-stoppingly dramatic new novel is about a man who travels back in time to prevent the JFK assassination—a thousand page tour de force.

Following his massively successful novel Under the Dome, King sweeps readers back in time to another moment—a real life moment—when everything went wrong: the JFK assassination. And he introduces readers to a character who has the power to change the course of history.

Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the students—a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer. Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk.

Not much later, Jake’s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane—and insanely possible—mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake’s life – a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time.

A tribute to a simpler era and a devastating exercise in escalating suspense, 11/22/63 is Stephen King at his epic best.

    Un bel King di una volta...

    Non ai massimi livelli, quelli sono ormai perduti, ma almeno ti viene la voglia fottuta di sapere come va a finire

    Capolavoro

    Avete presente quei libri che ami fin da subito, che non riesci a staccarti, che quando finisce ti manca? Capolavoro.

    Perfect, at last

    I always loved Stephen King for his outstanding ability to describe characters, relationships, communities and backgrounds, no matter what the plots were.
    Here, to all this he adds an engaging, coherent, touching story.
    Plus genius :)

    And draws a magnificent masterpiece. (in my modest opinion...)

    (...and he quotes his own universes: exhilarating...)

    Beautiful issue with intriguing double cover

    Me lo aspettavo diverso, devo dire. Per certi versi mi ha deluso, ma forse mi ero solo fatto ingannare dal titolo. Questo romanzo mette in vetrina il solito, impareggiabile talento di King nel raccontare l'umanità, non quella dei massimi sistemi bensì quella delle piccole cittadine, delle persone comuni, quella nella quale sono le piccole cose a fare la differenza e i gesti più semplici sono più preziosi dei grandi eroismi.

    Una storia davvero affascinante, tra viaggi nel tempo, resistenze del passato e armonie. Il re ha colto nel segno anche stavolta!
