AN INCREDIBLE UNABRIDGED AUDIO VALUE...OVER 30 HOURS ON ONLY THREE IPOD-READY MP3 CDS! 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 Kinga€™s heart-stoppingly dramatic new novel is about a man who travels back in time to prevent the JFK assassination. Following his massively successful novel Under the Dome, King sweeps listeners back in time to another momenta€”a real life momenta€”when everything went wrong: the JFK assassination. And he introduces listeners 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 studentsa€”a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night fifty years ago when his 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, Jakea€™s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insanea€”and insanely impossiblea€”mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jakea€™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 Jacka€™s lifea€”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.If the people who passed on rumors and gossip about the Famous Catburger had seen all that paperworka€”which included a Class A Certification of Cleanliness ... Ala#39;s MacBook sat on the sort of desk I remember using in the third grade.
