Troy’s Book Club: 11/22/63

Growing up, I read a LOT of Stephen King – Pet Sematary, Cujo, Salem’s Lot, Misery, It, The Stand, The Dead Zone, The Talisman, The Tommyknockers, Cycle of the Werewolf (man, he wrote a LOT of books!)… but I haven’t read any Stephen King in quite awhile. I’d heard about this book, but didn’t really know its deal. Then one day, I pulled a complete impulse-buy at a store’s cash register and here we are!

11/22/63 is a time travel story, about a man who wants to try and prevent the assassination of JFK. There’s nothing “spoilery” in that statement, as the cover itself gives a big suggestion about what the story might be dealing with. You can tell though, by looking at the thickness of the book that there is a LOT more going on than just that one aspect to the story. I will say this – it’s a drama, a thriller, a horror story, a love story, oh yeah, and time travel is involved in a novel way. If you enjoyed classic TV like the Twilight Zone, you’ll probably really enjoy this book, too. 🙂

Go get it at the Milwaukee Public Library, or the coolest local bookstore, Boswell Books!
