I LOVED this book!! I'm not even a "die hard" Stephen King person. I have absolute respect for him as a successful author - no doubt - I just don't get everything that he does. I've enjoyed some of his work though, I even made it through "Under The Dome", which I thought was okay. It was good enough to get me through all 1,088 pages but I wasn't super excited about it.

I loved 11/22/63 though. It really makes you wonder what life would be like if one thing had or hadn't happened. There are so many of those "watershed moments" in all of our lives, some affect a smaller circle of us, some affect the entire nation and spread to the rest of the world like the assassination of John F. Kennedy and 9/11. We immediately think if only those things didn't happen, life would be great, but would it? What would you do if you had the power to change fate? Would it really make things better or worse if things didn't follow the way they are meant to be?

This is really a GREAT book for a book club. You can really get into some wonderful, deep discussions. Books that get you thinking and talking afterwards. Love that!!

This was a really good book!! A lot of it is based on real Military protocol so that was super interesting. This book was easy to fly through - no problem. I can't wait for the next one!!

It was just okay. I liked his exchanged with Aunt Gladys and the young boy at the library more than anything else. I sort of wish the book was just about that. The main story was actually pretty boring. When it ended, it just sort of...ended. My take overall? Eh.
