Jake Epping, a teacher in a small Maine community, is shown the portal for going back in time by a terminally ill man. Before the man dies, he convinces Jake to try and stop Lee Harvey Oswald from assassinating President Kennedy in Dallas. This is a Stephen King book, however, and there are unseen forces that do not want the past tampered with. 11/22/63 is compulsively readable, well-researched, and often exciting. Mr. King not only poses the question of what someone might do if he could stop a crime that altered history, he speculates on what America might have been like if Kennedy had escaped unharmed. — Alden Graves
