11/22/63 by Stephen King
Stephen King's writing, as always, is perfection. The research is impeccable. The characters are engaging, the plot takes endless twist, and the ending is a surprise, yet just what you would expect from King. If you are a fan of JFK history, or just mid-century history, as I am, you'll fall right into the setting and want to stay. If you have no idea of anything that happened between 1958 and 1964, you'll probably still fall in and want to stay. I came away knowing more than when I started, and wanting to know even more.
Dave and I are both fans of time-travel stories, and read-together books that involve so many "what if's" are the most fun - so we both . . . what? "Enjoyed" seems too small, "loved" sounds so overused, . . . Well, just read it!
