Promo Monday: 11/22/63 by Stephen King


 

Title: 11/22/63
Author: Stephen King
Publisher: Scribner
To Purchase: Amazon 
Description: November 22nd, 1963 was a rapid-fire sequence of indelible moments: Shots ring out; a president slumped over; a race to the Dallas hospital; an announcement, blood still fresh on the First Lady's dress. But what if President John F. Kennedy didn't have to die; if somehow his assassin could have been thwarted? For Maine schoolteacher Jake Epping, those hypothetical what if's become real possibilities when he walks through a portal to the past. Without special skills and still unfamiliar with his new/old surroundings, he struggles to discover a way to change the history he left. Like its Under the Dome predecessor, Stephen King's 849-page novel shows that this master of suspense is back at the top of his game.

Yes, Stephen King might not need the promotion. We all know who he is, but this book is fantastic!
