11/22/63

A Novel

(2)
On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King—who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer—takes readers on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

It begins with Jake Epping, a thirty-five-year-old English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching GED classes. He asks his students to write about an event that changed their lives, and one essay blows him away—a gruesome, harrowing story about the night more than fifty years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a sledgehammer. Reading the essay is a watershed moment for Jake, his life—like Harry’s, like America’s in 1963—turning on a dime. Not much later his friend Al, who owns the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to the past, a particular day in 1958. And Al enlists Jake to take over the mission that has become his obsession—to prevent the Kennedy assassination.

So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson, in a different world of Ike and JFK and Elvis, of big American cars and sock hops and cigarette smoke everywhere. From the dank little city of Derry, Maine (where there’s Dunning business to conduct), to the warmhearted small town of Jodie, Texas, where Jake falls dangerously in love, every turn is leading eventually, of course, to a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and to Dallas, where the past becomes heart-stoppingly suspenseful, and where history might not be history anymore. Time-travel has never been so believable. Or so terrifying.

A must-read for any King fan!
von Katharina Hosse aus Dorsten am 17.02.2012

If you're looking for a scary Horror-story or an action-packed thrill-ride - this is probably not the book for you. Not that it's NOT scary, or thrilling, or no-I-don't-want-to-go-to-work-please-let-me-read-one-more-page addictive, but that's not what it's really about.

Not that it's NOT scary, or thrilling, or no-I-don't-want-to-go-to-work-please-let-me-read-one-more-page addictive, but that's not what it's really about. What it's about, first and foremost, are the characters like only King can write them. They take you in completely, and even when the story would have gotten too slow or too cheesy in somebody else's hands, here they remain fascinating and real. As an added bonus for fellow constant-readers, there are SO MANY references to several of his books, especially in the beginning, and it kind of makes me want to reread my entire collection.

Kein Horror - aber spannend!
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Bern am 23.11.2011

King ist in den letzten Jahren viel mehr ins Psychologische abgedriftet. Auch in 11/22/63 spielt der Meister gekonnt mit dem "Horror" des Alltags - oder eben der Vergangenheit. Der Roman bietet keine oder wenige historische Fakten über das Kennedy-Attentat, verbindet das Ereignis aber überaus unterhaltend mit Fiktion. Auf die... King ist in den letzten Jahren viel mehr ins Psychologische abgedriftet. Auch in 11/22/63 spielt der Meister gekonnt mit dem "Horror" des Alltags - oder eben der Vergangenheit. Der Roman bietet keine oder wenige historische Fakten über das Kennedy-Attentat, verbindet das Ereignis aber überaus unterhaltend mit Fiktion. Auf die Charaktere kommt es an, was King hier wieder einmal beweist. Teilweise kitschig, teilweise sehr spannend, liest sich 11/22/63 fast in einem Guss. Eine Mischung aus Sci-Fi, Thriller und Romance.
