stephen king der anschlag

Wer mit „Der Anschlag“ einen klassischen Horror-Roman im altbewährten Stil von Stephen Kings erwartet, wird hier leider enttäuscht sein. In „Der Anschlag“. Mit dieser Frage beschäftigt sich Stephen Kings Romanheld Jake Epping. In der festen Überzeugung, dass dem so sei, macht er sich auf in die Vergangenheit. Was wäre, wenn man die Kennedy-Ermordung verhindern könnte? In seinem neuen Roman verknüpft Stephen King eine zarte Romanze mit.

It's a small wonder Jake is able to continue his quest after starting in such an ominous place. But even there King manages to include some unexpected beauty - just remember Richie and Bevvy dancing.

Deep down under the beauty and quaintness lies the ugly little reality. And the same remains true for the Land of Ago , the glorious past of absent airport security, no cholesterol warnings, and everyone happily puffing their way to lung cancers.

The ss are described with sweetness and nostalgia, but King never hesitates to bluntly remind the reader that the past has teeth and it's not afraid to bite.

King is an excellent writer and an amazing storyteller. His writing is effortless and natural, the characterization is apt and memorable, and the dialogue superb and real-sounding.

I truly felt for Jake during each step of his journey. I loved how Oswald was described as not a villain or a nutcase but a flawed broken little man who stumbled into the middle of events that changed history.

The other characters - Sadie, Deke, Ellie, Frank Dunning - were so well-written that I could feel them come to life which actually can be a scary statement when the world of sai King is concerned.

The story, despite its sizable length, was flowing along and never lost my attention. Some may consider The Stand his masterpiece to his dismay - who wants to think he's already reached the peak of his writing career three decades ago???

View all comments. Because he writes sci-fi and horror? Because his books are so compelling, entertaining and popular? For me, King does what very few authors manage - he turns fast-paced genre fiction into well-written, thought-provoking literature.

But I find myself once again in that situation where I read a book I always meant to read and mentally kick myself for not giving in sooner.

This book is fantastic. Some of its critics don't like the crossover of many genres, claiming it "wanders from genre to genre". However, I loved how this book was many things.

It's an extremely well-researched piece of historical fiction; it's a fascinating look at time travel science fiction is it possible to change the past?

What is the cost of doing so? King has this strange way of turning the most fantastical plots into stories about people who feel very real.

He writes detailed and honest character portraits, so that these characters become so vivid and realistic, likable and flawed, that we so easily believe in everything that happens to them.

If you don't already know, this book is about a man called Jake Epping who - through his friend, Al - discovers a portal that takes him to , where he takes over Al's obsessive mission to prevent the Kennedy assassination.

He establishes a new life in the past, in a world filled with big American cars, rock'n'roll, and shameless racism, sexism and homophobia.

The amount of research King did is evident. He paints an intricate portrait of this time - simultaneously portraying an exciting, dreamy era full of different fashions, music, and the best root beer ever for 10 cents He makes this era seem like a bright, amazing, creepy nightmare.

I thoroughly enjoyed it. Unlike some of King's other works, the pages didn't feel like too much to me and they just seemed to fly by.

So glad I finally read it. Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr View all 67 comments. Thank you, Steve.

You were wrong all those years ago when you said you weren't very good at writing about love and intimacy. The love story here is full of honesty and tenderness.

When I got to the last couple of pages, I was crying so hard I couldn't read. If you're avoiding it because you think Stephen King only writes horror, please reconsider.

There's no horror here, aside from a couple of mild gross-out Thank you, Steve. There's no horror here, aside from a couple of mild gross-out scenes.

I know my experience would have been cheapened by knowing too much beforehand, so I'm not going to tell you what it's about in the style of a traditional book review.

Be it on someone else's head to spoil your fun. So why should you read it? With poundcake for afters. Because dancing is life.

Thanks again, Steve. There's always room for you on my dance card. Look at the amount of pages in this book.

Look at the amount of pages in Under The Dome. Check the date this book is published. Check the date Under The Dome was published. Utterly compelling.

King outlines a clear end goal, and the novel benefits enormously as the journey to that destination unfolds.

Part drama, part historical-fiction, part romance. King has stated the book's idea came to him in , yet at the time didn't have enough confidence in his skill or ability to properly pull something like this off.

Well, the wait was worth it. Truly masterful. View all 47 comments. You may ask yourself how in the world did a wife beating, mental degenerate, and multiple country defecting USA, RUSSIA and an attempt at Cuba little shit like this kill the charismatic, handsome war hero, and most powerful man in the world.

It doesn't make any sense. It never has made any sense. Oswald just does not fit the profile for a guy that could pull off an assassination of this magnitude.

He's a semi-educated hillbilly, but he's surprisingly crafty. His swoon-inspiring smile, his wavy hair, and his beautiful wife would not win him votes hidden behind bullet proof glass.

The parade route was even published in the paper. When Lee Harvey Oswald noticed that the route passed right by the Texas School Book Depository, his place of work, he felt the universe was talking to him.

A president riding in an open car sounds insane, but the reality is that a president had not been assassinated since McKinley in I could see how Kennedy, weighing the risk, would have felt reasonably safe.

We all know how that turned out. Jake Epping, an unassuming English teacher, is given an opportunity to go back in time.

The time portal, located in the back room of a greasy spoon, will take him back to A year tantalizingly close to one of the most traumatic events in American history.

Jake, now George Amberson, just had to lay low and wait for to roll around and use that time to come up with a plan to stop the before mentioned Lee Harvey Oswald.

King explores the well traveled road of the potential devastating effects of changing the past to influence the future.

What if Kennedy had not been killed? My liberal leanings would have me believe that the world would be better today. There are piles of documentation showing that Kennedy had no intention of escalating the war in Vietnam.

As he proved with The Cuban Missile Crisis, he was a man that understood the bluff without committing the hardware. He was a man that had been to war, and I find it hard to believe he would have committed American kids to die in the jungles of Southeast Asia.

One of Stephen King's strengths is that despite the fact that he is wealthy man and one of the most successful writers in the world, he really understands common everyday people.

I found myself developing a real fondness for Jake. I winced when he failed. I whooped when things went well. His romance with Sadie is spun out so nicely that the Kennedy assassination almost becomes a back ground plot.

King placed a Japanese proverb at the front of the book and also used it so wonderfully in the plot. Every time I read it I find a smile on my face.

The margins are wide and the print large, so don't let the size of the book keep you from reading this charming book. I'm off to turn my time travel machine, nearly finished, back into something a little less dangerous to the world like a cappuccino machine.

I will fuck up several times, but that is no problem because I have no life and therefore I will simply go back in time again and repeat the experience until I get things right.

At some point along the way, I will fall in love with an 80 year-old woman. Anyway, once I view spoiler [save JFK and am thanked with a lifetime supply of beer, I will finally return to the present.

But oh no! And yet even though there is no plausible reason whatsoever for this to be the case hide spoiler ] , I will nonetheless accept it as true and simply go back a-fucking-GAIN just to undo what I spent pages doing.

And that is my story. Shelves: audiobooks , suspenseful-clues-and-thrilling-rev , bookstagram-made-me-do-it , recommended.

Life is busy, and yet I cannot shake the feeling of pleasure I received from reading this book. It is a masterpiece, no doubt, but also the type of story that is suited to King's old style of dialogue and flair for throwback culture.

Dare I suggest that this book is the author's unicorn? Clearly he is immensely talented, and a good number of his other works are amongst my favorite novels of all time, but there is something unique to this historical time-traveling fiction that keeps blinking in my peripheral, almost like a jealous lover, keeping me from fully enjoying any book that I have picked up since finishing this one.

Maybe writing this review will give me a sense of release, or perhaps I'll gear up the old audible and dive in for a reread.

If I'm wrong about the above statement and you haven't read this yet, all you really need to know going in is that an ordinary teacher from "present day" time travels back to the late 50's in preparation to attempt to prevent JFK's assassination.

However, even that above statement is deceitful, because that's literally all I knew about this book going in, and it is SO much more.

The way that Stephen King chooses to prepare us and lead us up to that moment is nothing short of brilliant; the process in getting to that fateful day is just as suspenseful, intriguing, and emotional as the climax.

As unbelievable as it sounds, King has written one of the most tender, intimate, and swoon-worthy romances of all time between these pages.

There are heaps of action, suspense, and easter eggs planted for fans who have read other books by the author visiting Derry right after the first summer that the Losers Club experienced Pennywise was unreal.

If you're an audiobook lover, I highly suggest listening to this book, or at least supplementing your hardcopy with it.

I would love to see King write something similar to this in the coming years, but even if he chooses not to, I'll cherish this experience, and every reread after, as one of the most compelling stories ever written in our contemporary age.

When discussing historical events and the potential impact of changing them both knowing what actually happened vs conjecturing what would happen if any details were changed , you have to make sure your knowledge of all related events is strong!

The tw Another big, big King book down! The two most common themes of this book are: will the past allow itself to be changed?

I liked the extensive storytelling in this one. Any of them would be an interesting story by itself, but none of them truly appreciated unless combined with all of the others.

A couple of times it felt like the story was starting over and I was a few hundred pages in! But, in the end I loved the whole package — quick places, slow places, exposition, character development, backstory, etc.

Compared to other King? Well, the character development, interaction, and dialogue definitely felt like King. At places it felt like a Dark Tower spin off.

There are direct references to some of his other novels view spoiler [specifically IT and Christine hide spoiler ] that will make King fans feel nostalgic.

But, in the end, I feel like the book is in a class all by itself that is not really like any other King book I have read before.

It is not horror. Know that you might devour it, or might need to set it down and take a break from it from time to time.

Either way I hope you enjoy — just know you cannot go back and change the fact that you took the time to read it.

It's also true that I have never read a single thing from Mr. King until now. I'm not sure. Maybe his books intimidated me, because when I was younger everyone was always talking to me about how his books were so long, and blah blah.

I hear it's so much different than his other work, but I also haven't met I'll be honest here. I hear it's so much different than his other work, but I also haven't met a single person that didn't love it.

I read this book because everybody and their brother was recommending it to me as a "must read". I'm also not a big historical fiction fan, and didn't know how much I would enjoy reading about 20 years before my birth.

I had nothing to worry about. Here is a book that you never want to end, yet you do want it to end, because you need to know what is going to happen.

King introduces us to a man named Jake who insists that he is not emotionless despite the fact that he doesn't cry often. I can relate to him right off the bat.

Not a big crier, but I definitely feel emotions on a huge level. Jake is sent back to with a plan made up by a guy named Al who owns a local diner, and has the "rabbit hole" which is how they travel back in time.

At first his mission is just to stop Lee Harvey Oswald from assassinating JFK, but then little things pop up here and there making him consider a few new things that need to be changed.

I'm not going into any more detail than that, because I don't want to give away one single thing in this brilliant novel.

Fans of his story "It" may be excited to know he revisits the town of Derry, Maine, where "It" was located. The excitement and suspense in this book were astonishing.

I held my breath in anticipation of certain things Jake had to do, and then some twist would come out of left field, and I would continue reading in awe.

There were also several sighs of relief and a couple of cute moments involving Jake's romance that just made me say "aww".

I do feel like there were a rough ish pages that dragged on somewhere in the middle, and the book may have benefited by taking out a few things, but obviously I'm no expert.

That's just my opinion. Again, this may have also been just something I was feeling, because I was very impatient and really wanting to know how this book would end.

Some people didn't like the ending, but I loved it! In the afterword King discusses his research a bit. You can most definitely tell that a lot of research and thought went into this novel.

The descriptions are vivid and when I say you are really transported back to the 60's I mean it. You will feel it.

This is another of King's books that I could see as a film, too. If you are wanting to try a Stephen King book, but don't know if you will like all the horror, read this!

It is not like that at all. View all 72 comments. Seriously, read this! Shelves: hand-me-some-tissues , i-e-i-will-always-love-you , cried-my-eyes-out , favorites , read-reviewed , 6-stars , exceeded-my-expectations , didn-t-see-that-coming.

I'm so upset that it's over You got me at the ending there, Stephen. You really, truly got me.

What can I possibly say about this wonderful, beautiful book? That it's wonderful and beautiful? That's no where near enough praise.

This book made it up to my top 3 favorites list by King placing at 3 and is probably my favorite book of if not tied with Shutter Island.

Reading this book, I was so worried about what the ending would be because, let's be honest here, we know King isn't the best at handling endings Exhibit A: Under the Dome , and I had a really strong feeling I knew what the ending would be, but that ending was just absolutely amazing It left everything wrapped up nicely, and was one of his better endings, if not his best or at least my favorite, even though it's not wrapped up with a pretty bow.

The last chapter made me grin ear to ear, but then it left me feeling sad beyond words can describe.

To be honest, after I turned the last page or better yet, clicked, since I own a Kindle , I just sat there and bawled my eyes out, to the point where my husband got worried about me.

It was that sad. The characters in this book couldn't be better, and I really, truly mean that. I loved every single character with the exception of Lee Harvey Oswald Poor Marina Their love for each other was undeniable and irrevocable, and just so darn beautiful.

Who would have thought that the Stephen King we all know and love at least I know and love him could write a beautiful and touching romance alongside a thriller.

That was a great shock, and I hope he incorporates this skill of weaving a good relationship into a lot more of his books to come.

Being a huge King fan, I couldn't wait for this book to come out. But, in all fairness, I didn't expect to love it.

I thought it would be average, maybe even "just okay" , but let me tell you I really, really loved this book.

And if you aren't a King fan, please pretty please don't let that stop you from reading this book. This book has absolutely no scary parts, for those of you who abstain from reading Stephen King's books because they are classified as horror, and, like I mentioned earlier on in this review, I actually cried at the end of the book the first time that I've ever cried while reading a King novel.

So, please, even if you don't like Stephen King, read this! It's an absolutely beautiful book, and one I wish I can read for the first time all over again.

And if you're still not convinced to read this, would it help if I told you that there's And if you're listening to the audiobook, maybe two boxes.

For those wondering, these are my top 3 favorite King books: 1: It 2: The Shining 3: this may shock some people I'll love your face no matter what is looks like.

Home is where you dance with others, and dancing is life. Don't we all secretly know this? It's a perfectly balanced mechanism of shouts and echoes pretending to be wheels and cogs, a dreamclock chiming beneath a mystery-glass we call life.

Behind it? Below it and around it? Chaos, storms. Men with hammers, men with knives, men with guns. Women who twist what they cannot dominate and belittle what they cannot understand.

A universe of horror and loss surrounding a single lighted stage where mortals dance in defiance of the dark. To listen to Stephen King read an excerpt from Dr.

There's two main story lines: 1 The Romance story with wonderful well developed characters 2 Stop A major event in U. History its all well plotted throughout the book Both mixed together in some very intelligent--satisfying ways.

Stephen King knows how to blend the supernatural with history better than your average author. I'm often not a fan of time travel fiction reading but Stephen King improves this type of storytelling by adding themes, choices, and consequences in his story.

At some point in your reading View all 70 comments. Real spoilers are inside "spoiler" tags. Things that tell a little about the content that I would have appreciated hearing before committing to this behemoth are not.

You've been warned. This is my first Stephen King read. I'm not a horror fan, but I love a good alternate history, and I figured that a story of a man who goes back in time to stop Kennedy's assassination could be one of those.

It isn't. Not the biggest hurdle, because this could still have been an enjoyable read if it had been abou Real spoilers are inside "spoiler" tags.

Not the biggest hurdle, because this could still have been an enjoyable read if it had been about a man who travels back to live in a different time and gives insightful commentary on the similarities and differences between these cultures.

This book wasn't that, either. It was exactly what I had naively been trying not to read: a horror. Your basic stabby horror, with a slight twist.

In this book, the immutability of the past, its obduracy to cling to what has already been, is the thing with teeth.

I know that doesn't sound traditionally horrific, but its manifestation is that when the main character is trying to do something that would result in immediately changing the outcome of a big event--such as an event in which someone originally got killed--this aspect of the past intervenes repeatedly and violently to keep him from doing it.

Or all of those, and others. So the "dramatic" parts of the story involve our hero attempting to get to his destination and, for example, having to stop for green lights while traffic barrels through in the other direction, then having to go deal with his overwhelming diarrhea, then having to talk some completely random guy out of shooting him for a nonsense reason.

Then he has to deal with a topiary. A major part of the climax of the novel involves him trying to run up six flights of stairs having just broken a few ribs in a car crash, while also being a few weeks out of a coma.

There's a killing of a family by sledgehammer-wielding maniac described in detail multiple times in the first pages. Later on, a woman gets her cheek ripped open by a knife-wielding maniac.

Multiple people kill themselves in front of our hero by slitting their throats. The structure of the novel is as follows: guy finds out he can easily go back in time to , to the same minute of the same day each time he goes.

He becomes part of his friend's plot to keep Kennedy from being killed. Except the guy doesn't quite believe this whole time travel thing, so he goes back to , spends about 2 months hanging out and making observations about what various companies' slogans are always reproduced in all caps, so that it feels like they're being yelled from the page , stops a violent crime from happening close to home, and zips back to to confirm that, yes, he did change the past.

He returns to , re-stops that crime, and then spends the better part of five years waiting for Kennedy's assassination attempt.

That's the middle of the book: him sitting around in the early s, in a holding pattern, scoping out downtown Dallas and following Lee Harvey Oswald from a distance so he can convince himself that he really doesn't like this guy.

It takes at least pages for to arrive. The decision of what to do to Oswald is presented as simple and binary, in a way that bugged me throughout the book.

If our hero finds out that Oswald is the lone person behind the assassination, then the only course of action considered is for our guy to kill him.

There's some momentary advance remorse about that, but not much, because Oswald is known to have killed Kennedy in the real timeline.

The thing I still don't get is, in the real timeline, Oswald died as a direct result of having been arrested for Kennedy's murder.

Which means that a person who simply kept Oswald from being present on the parade route that day by any means necessary, gory ones included--slit the guy's arm open with a knife, for example would save both Kennedy's life and Oswald's.

No murder necessary. King doesn't even give this idea lip service--killing is presented as the only possible plan in order to get the assassination stopped.

Back to our hero. After he changes history, view spoiler [he finds out that human events are so important that if they get changed as significantly has he has altered them, the entire earth reacts.

Human events cause geological events. By stopping Kennedy's assassination, he initiates massive earthquakes, leading to lots of deaths and eventually to nuclear meltdowns years later.

All of which means that instead of King doing the thing that people tend to find intriguing when reading alternate histories--giving his answer to "what really would have happened with Vietnam and Civil Rights and all that if Kennedy hadn't been shot?

So you spend pages wondering what King thinks this history would have looked like with more Kennedy in it, and King's writing itself is very workmanlike.

He is rarely poetic or descriptive in ways that give any deeper meaning or even paint a vivid picture. This would be fine or something on the yawn-inducing side of fine if this were a fast, plot-driven book, but it's not.

The engine of the book is the main character's time travel journey back from to and the years immediately following, but nothing that he ever says makes this feel like reality.

The narrator is supposed to be 35 in , which places him in my own age cohort--but I think even someone 10 or 20 years older than I am, given the time-travel option, would have a lot of strong visceral reactions to the way the world was back then.

King has him comment on the fact that root beer tastes "fuller" from a soda fountain than it does in the present--but frankly, that doesn't give me much to go on, and he uses that same descriptor every time he references the root beer an awful lot without adding to the picture.

And that's it: he does nothing else to show how the experience of drinking at a soda fountain would be different from the experience that someone born in the late s would be used to at a diner in the 21st century.

It's like this with so many things: either our hero doesn't seem to notice all the little differences in daily life, or he treats these with a nostalgia borrowed from the author.

The representation of his age is wrong on other levels, too--the guy says he had never used a rotary phone before traveling to , even though many people from older generations like my grandparents and anyone else who could remember the Depression held on to their rotary phones until almost the s; and yet this same guy has a thorough and in-depth understanding of how to mess with records and record players to slow down playback.

His first time in , our hero buys what is apparently a cool s car and instantly falls in love with driving it, to the extent that he detests his Toyota Corolla with a passion when he gets back to The shift in his loyalties is instantaneous and unequivocal--no disorientation about the lack of seat belts or other now-familiar features in an older car, just a seamless love for all things vintage that feels too uncomplicated to be on-target.

The cigarette smoke is another of this kind of example: our hero comments that smoke and smokers are everywhere, but then just seems able to ignore it.

It rings false that a non-smoker who finds himself in a place where every restaurant and bank has people smoking in it, and where every hotel room, used car, and cab reeks of cigarettes, wouldn't have a lot more adjusting to do than just the casual shrug that the guy gives when he mentions it.

It may sound weird that, given a book that's far too long, I'd be complaining about a lack of words, but it's more that the things King chooses to say often don't contribute to the storytelling or plotting or character development or setting and instead are meaningless, repetitive, and make the lack of significant detail all the more conspicuous by its absence.

While I was reading this book, my commuting audiobook was TC Boyle's Drop City, which is set in a hippie commune in The contrast between how Boyle gives a sense of and how King gives a sense of is vertiginous.

Now for the -isms. After about pages of , it struck me that King was painting an idealistic, whitewashed picture of what was a turbulent and violent time with regard to civil rights.

And right then, our hero said exactly the same thing in the narrative: "in case this seems like an overly happy picture, let me tell you about this 'colored' restroom I saw outdoors in North Carolina.

He goes on to describe a rest stop in which the regular bathroom is labeled for use by whites only and the signs to the 'colored' restroom lead to something awful.

Completely reasonable and valid point made right there Anytime else in the book when he wants to talk about Civil Rights or unequal treatment or any of that, he references the bathroom in North Carolina.

It doesn't seem to matter that the character drives from Florida to Texas across all of the most virulently racist states in the South during a time when race-related violence was peaking, then lives in Texas for another few years.

In all that time, he runs across a white man who says racist things and consequently decides he doesn't like the guy This character is walking around in the South living in segregated neighborhoods, eating at segregated lunch counters at which he always comments that the food is both good and cheap , drinking from segregated water fountains, riding buses where he gets to sit down when others have to stand in back because of their difference in skin color--and barely notices all of the casual racism entrenched in this world.

The fact that not only doesn't he notice this around him, but also that he has to reach way back to that one restroom in North Carolina whenever he needs to talk about discrimination, comes across as casually racist.

Anti-Semitism: there are four characters in the book who are described explicitly as Jewish.

One of them is Jack Ruby, a real person who apparently owned a strip club King makes sure to point out and who was the guy who shot Oswald in the real timeline after he was in custody.

The other three are fictional, all bookies. They run pawn shops and have Mob ties and all make their money explicitly from the suffering of others.

I could mention the two female family members we are introduced to as well, but they aren't characters--the narrative states explicitly at one point that they are interchangeable.

They also work in the family money businesses. I'd like to thank Stephen King personally for perpetuating stereotypes that just need to freaking die already.

While we're at it, sexism: our hero is a guy who starts dating a woman in about , and he also spends a number of years teaching high school don't get me started on that--an English teacher from travels back 50 years and starts teaching adolescents seamlessly, without having any trouble adjusting to the loss of the most recent five decades of writing to teach from?

The loss of recognized diversity in curricula? How limited a teacher is he? He comments that they're expected to wear girdles sometimes, but he compares that to guys having to wear condoms and says that guys have it worse.

Otherwise, he conveys no sense in the least that girls or women might have an easier time of things in than they do in I could say more about my dislike of this book.

I could mention my frustration with the way that King writes as though he knows nothing about what the Butterfly Effect actually references for the first pages--so that when he reveals that he mostly gets it, it's too little, too late.

I could rant about many other aspects of the novel. Instead, I'll end by saying that there are books out there that accomplish what King is trying to do, using well-chosen words and fewer of them , thoughtful plots, and skilled character development.

For a time-travel study in contrasts, try Kindred , by Octavia Butler. For an experience of recent history that feels immersive and real , complete with sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll , try Drop City , by TC Boyle.

Let us endure hardship to be grateful for plenty. We have been given pain to be astounded by joy. We have been given life to deny death.

We did not ask for this room or this music. But because we are here, let us dance. But first, he must create a life for himself in the years leading up to the assassination as he has some research to do.

In doing so, he stumbles upon the town of Jodie and a beautiful librarian named Sadie Dunhill. Let me preface this review by saying When I first read this book it blew me away, and on my reread, it had the exact same effect.

I would go so far as to say that this is one of the best books I've ever read. Usually I can find faults within all of King's works, but I'm sitting here trying to think of something I didn't like about this book and I've got nothing.

On my first read I sometimes felt a bit bored by the JFK plot, but I think that was because I was so impatient to get back to Jake's life and relationship with Sadie.

Now on my reread, I already knew what was coming - the same urgency wasn't there - so I was able to appreciate that storyline a bit more and it's actually really piqued an interest in learning more about this moment in American history.

King's writing is beautiful in this book. He evokes such a range of emotions in these pages, one minute I was laughing, the next I was crying.

He makes me nostalgic for a time period and a country I didn't even live in! A root beer never ever appealed to me until I read this book.

His, or rather Jake's, reflections on life just really resonated with me, life CAN turn on a dime and this book is a constant reminder to just enjoy what you have when you have it - because who knows what is around the corner?

I fell in love with Sadie as Jake did. Sadie is brave, headstrong, resilient, and given her past, her outlook on life is inspiring.

As for Jake, some of the decisions he makes without giving away any spoilers proves that he is simply a good man.

To take on such an arduous task, spanning years of your life, is admirable. And with these two amazing characters, King writes his greatest love story.

It is beautiful and heartfelt and REAL. It shook me to my core. If anyone ever tries to tell you that King can only write horror, slam this book in their face!

Although that's not to say that there aren't moments of horror Credit must also be given to the ridiculous amount of research that must have gone into this book.

The attention to detail is staggering - I personally cannot say how much of it is accurate as I don't know much about the JFK assassination - but I'm guessing King left no stone unturned.

I'm actually trying to convince my mum to read it as I think she'd love it, but she remains stubborn - I WILL break her!! On a final note, I'm intrigued as to what King's initial ending was - he says in the afternotes that Joe came up with a better ending than the one he had planned.

I wonder if it would have left me so dehydrated Does that make sense? It does to me. Truly incredible.

Wait a second. Oh, shit! What year are you from? My name is George Amberson. You too? Oh, man. That old chestnut?

But are you sure you should be changing stuff in the past? That seems really dangerous and could cause all kinds of paradoxes. Or worse yet, accidentally become your own grandfather.

We did a few trial runs, and everything seemed OK. In fact, how do you time travel? I have a friend named Al who found a kind of portal in time.

We call it the rabbit hole. Every time you go through it, you wind up at the same day in our home town in Al went through the rabbit hole over and over for years and discovered that no matter how long you stay, when you go back through the portal, only two minutes have elapsed since you left.

The person he saved was alive, but if he goes back through the portal to the past again, then everything resets to the original timeline and that person would die, unless Al saved them again, right?

And you could go back to the past wearing that hat which resets everything, but when you went to the store you bought it from, the same hat would still be on your head and on the shelf at the same time!

Jake, are you sure about this? He worked it all out. Al is a baby boomer, right? A physicist? A historian? He owns the local diner.

He came through and lived here several years while he watched Oswald. So he went back to and told me about the rabbit hole.

I just realized that you had to live here for five years waiting for this moment. Damn, five years in the past must have sucked, Jake.

You know, because of the reset. I had to spend some time in a really nasty town in Maine called Derry. It was a very ugly place in They had some child murders.

I started teaching again and built up a whole life for myself as George Amberson. I really like it here in the past now. But they have really good root beer in this time.

And stuff is really cheap! I can buy a new car for peanuts. Speaking of which, how did you make money? Just teaching? Like I made a pretty penny betting on the Dallas Texans to beat Houston the other night.

It was very cool to bet on the Cowboys before they were even the Cowboys. The NFL started the Cowboys in Dallas just to screw with him, and he eventually had to move the team to Kansas City and change their name to the Chiefs.

The Cowboys were always the Cowboys. Are you sure about that, Kemper? Jesus, you are scaring the shit out of me. I hope to hell you know a lot more about the JFK assassination than you do about pro football.

Did you at least bring some history books with you? You said that Al spent years getting ready for this?

And each time hop only takes you two minutes, right? I really wish you would have thought this through more than just doing a couple of test runs.

You should have done that like twenty times. It would have taken you just forty minutes, right? You see, for one thing, the time we spent in the past is still elapsed time.

The deeper you get into, the more you have to lose. You see, the past does not want to be changed. If you try to revise something, it fights back.

When we did our trial runs, it threw everything it could at us from car trouble to illness, and the bigger the event, the harder it tries to stop you.

And this seems like a good idea, Jake? I did this with the best of intentions. I mean, you seem like a nice guy.

Good luck you poor bastard. This was a big story in Dallas at the time and both teams did tons of promotions and advertising so it doesn't seem possible that Jake was somehow unaware of the existence of the Cowboys.

But the old Negro Leagues baseball team that had players like Satchel Paige was called the Monarchs, and you can still purchase Monarchs merchandise in KC today.

Are they mistakes or is King just being cute? And that makes me nuts. When I heard the concept of this book, I worried that King was succumbing to a bad case of baby boomer JFKitis, and the early parts of the book seem to have confirmed this.

I was greatly relieved that by the end of this book, King seemed to have set aside the rose colored JFK glasses and made that oddity about the objects part of a paradox instead of just a plot contrivance.

A Masterpiece! Awesome story!! Stephen blows my mind. His prose is so easy to follow and he is so clear what he is getting across to me, the reader.

It knows how to set up a character. There are a lot of bells and whistles in this story and its draw is Lee Oswald and the shooting of JFK.

Yet, this story is really a love story. It's a beautiful relationship the A Masterpiece! It's a beautiful relationship the two have and the love story holds the whole book together, in my opinion.

Jake goes back in time to stop the assassination of JFK. He lives in and he finds a strange time-hole that goes to and he has to live life in the past before he can stop Lee.

He moves to the Dallas area to a little town called Jodie, TX where he substitute teaches and becomes a full time staff.

The librarian is Sadie Dunhill and they quickly become friends. Half of the story almost is their story and about the kids at school.

Stephen is a master a character writing. If you want to know how to write a character, then Stephen is the master to follow.

He uses that to build this community of Jodie and I was so pulled in. I almost didn't care about the rest, but it's so intricately woven together that it's all one thread.

As readers, especially someone like me who didn't know a whole lot about Oswald, Stephn has done his research and he packs this books with historical facts.

He plays here and there with timing and he lets us know in the afterward, but mostly, he sticks to the facts. I am amazed how much is known about the spouse abusing messed up man.

King really brings the humanity to Marina, his wife and their child and he even shows the humanity of Lee at moments with his daughter.

Marina put up with a horror show. The theme of this book is 'the past harmonizes' and Stephen drives this point home to good effect.

It becomes it's own harmonic in the book and it helps to bring all the stories going on together. I'm telling you, this is a layered masterpiece from one of the most gifted writers of our time.

He weaves historical fact with fiction with historical fiction with time travel with a love story for the ages. The idea of time travel is also dealt with.

What happens if time is changed? What would that do to the world? Would a good intention to change the past bring about the changes we want?

These are the questions explored in this book. The time travel is unique to what I've seen and I love it. Zunächst hatte er gehofft, das Attentat selbst verhindern zu können, und verbrachte fast fünf Jahre in der Vergangenheit, lebte dort also fast bis zum Zeitpunkt des Attentats im November — auch um Lee Harvey Oswald zu beobachten und so sicherzustellen, dass dieser tatsächlich der Mörder Kennedys ist, was bis heute zahllose Verschwörungstheorien bestreiten.

Zudem erkrankt Al in dieser Zeit an Lungenkrebs und kann seinen Plan nicht mehr selbst ausführen.

So kehrt er in die Gegenwart zurück, um stattdessen Jake in die Vergangenheit zu schicken. Zurück im Jahr testet Jake, ob sein Eingriff in die Geschichte erfolgreich war.

Den behinderten Harry Dunning kennt in dieser Gegenwart tatsächlich niemand. Jake findet aber die Telefonnummer von dessen Schwester heraus.

Als er bei ihr anruft, teilt sie ihm zu seinem Entsetzen mit, dass Harry während der Tet-Offensive im Vietnamkrieg getötet wurde.

Mit Notizen über Oswald sowie Sportergebnissen aus den Jahren bis um durch Wetten seinen Lebensunterhalt bestreiten zu können reist er wieder ins Jahr und löst somit wieder einen Neustart aus.

Sein Leichnam hält statt einer gelben Karte nun eine schwarze Karte in der Hand. Danach fährt er nach Florida, erwirbt bei einer Titelmühle ein Diplom in Englisch und verbringt den Rest des Jahres als Aushilfslehrer an einer Schule.

Die Wartezeit verbringt Jake in der texanischen Kleinstadt Jodie, wo er eine einjährige befristete Anstellung als Lehrer an einer Highschool antritt.

Dort verliebt er sich in die Schulbibliothekarin Sadie Dunhill, die ihrerseits vor ihrem psychotischen Ehemann nach Texas geflohen ist.

Daraufhin bricht sie die Beziehung zu Jake ab und reist in den Sommerferien nach Nevada , um dort die wegen des liberaleren Scheidungsrechts mögliche Trennung von ihrem geisteskranken Mann zu veranlassen.

So kann er nicht nur Oswalds Kontakte mit George de Mohrenschildt verfolgen, sondern später auch verifizieren, dass Oswald wie bis heute vermutet, aber nicht endgültig bewiesen der Schütze beim Attentat auf General Edwin Walker im April war.

Nach einiger Zeit nimmt Jake seine Beziehung mit Sadie wieder auf und enthüllt ihr, ein Zeitreisender aus der Zukunft zu sein; als Beweis kann er korrekt den Verlauf der Kubakrise im Oktober , später den eines Boxkampfes voraussagen.

Je näher der Zeitpunkt des Attentats rückt, desto heftiger wehrt sich die Zeit dagegen, geändert zu werden: Im April wird Sadie von ihrem Ex-Mann überfallen und im Gesicht entstellt.

Doch bevor er sie töten kann, wird er von Jake aufgehalten, woraufhin er Suizid verübt. Jake übernimmt Sadies Krankenhauskosten und muss daraufhin wieder mithilfe von Wetten sein Geld aufstocken.

Nach einer erfolgreichen Wette wird er jedoch von dem Buchmacher verprügelt. Jake muss sich die nächsten elf Wochen von den Verletzungen sowie dem daraus resultierenden Gedächtnisverlust erholen, der ihn die Einzelheiten um das Attentat sowie den Namen Oswalds vergessen lässt.

Erst wenige Stunden vor dem Attentat findet er das Notizbuch wieder, in dem Oswalds Name steht, und erinnert sich an seine Mission.

Jake kann rechtzeitig ausweichen, jedoch wird die hinter ihm stehende Sadie tödlich verwundet. Jake und Sadie werden kurz darauf zu Nationalhelden erklärt, Präsident Kennedy und seine Frau bedanken sich bei Jake persönlich.

Sadie soll auf dem Nationalfriedhof Arlington in einer ehrenvollen Zeremonie bestattet werden. Er willigt ein und macht sich auf den Weg zurück nach Maine zum Zeitportal.

Während der Fahrt erfährt er von einem schweren Erdbeben in Los Angeles mit tausenden Todesopfern und vermutet, dass es eine direkte Folge seiner Handlungen ist: Die Zeit widersetzt sich den Änderungen.

Als er vor dem Portal steht, sieht er, dass dort nun ein junger Mann namens Zack Lang wacht, der eine grüne Karte trägt.

Wenn es zu viele Zeitstrahlen gebe, verheddern sie sich und das Portal werde zerstört. Zack Lang bittet ihn, seine Änderungen rückgängig zu machen, um die Stabilität der Erde zu gewährleisten.

Jake hört zunächst nicht auf ihn und kehrt durch das Portal hindurch wieder in das Jahr zurück. Seit seiner Abreise sind in der Gegenwart nur zwei Minuten vergangen — und doch ist die Welt Schauplatz einer Dystopie.

Er trifft auf Harry Dunning, der zwar vor seinem Vater gerettet, aber in Vietnam verwundet wurde und seitdem im Rollstuhl sitzt.

Er erklärt ihm die Welt seit Lyndon B. Johnson wurde nie US-Präsident und infolgedessen gab es keine Bürgerrechtsbewegung.

Es gibt unerklärliche Erdbeben , die die Welt spätestens bis aufreiben werden.
