Beschreibung

What if you could go back in time and change the course of history? What if the watershed moment you could change was the JFK assassination? 11.22.63, the date that Kennedy was shot - unless....
King takes his protagonist Jake Epping, a high school English teacher from Lisbon Falls, Maine, 2011, on a fascinating journey back to 1958 - from a world of mobile phones and iPods to a new world of Elvis and JFK, of Plymouth Fury cars and Lindy Hopping, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake's life - a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time.
With extraordinary imaginative power, King weaves the social, political and popular culture of his baby-boom American generation into a devastating exercise in escalating suspense.

“This new epic from Stephen King rates among the best he’s written – no small praise for the man who wrote Carrie, It, The Stand and Under the Dome.” (Trucking News)

Wow!

Früher war ich ein großer Fan von Stephen King; "It" war mein erstes Buch und ich find's immer noch gut. Dann hat mein Interesse etwas nachgelassen - aber von diesem Buch bin ich wieder uneingeschränkt begeistert. Die Ermordung Kennedys zu verhindern per Zeitreise, wobei jeder neue Gang zurück ein Reset der bereits geänderten Ereignisse bedeutet. Die Beschreibung der amerikanischen Gesellschaft in den späten 50er-, frühen 60er-Jahren; ein Wiedersehen mit Derry und Bevy und Ritchie aus "It" (wenn auch nur am Rand). Es ist spannend und rührend, brilliant geschrieben und fesselnd vorgelesen. Auch das Ende ist passend - was nicht ganz einfach ist mit Zeitreisegeschichten! Ich kann das Buch nur empfehlen!

An unbelievable story, believably told

Someone must have said about stephen king once that "he could find the epic in the ordinary and make you see it too" - at least I seem to remember someone did.

This story is touching, because you almost believe YOU yourself could have stumbled down those steps, and ended up with a resposibility so huge, the mind boggles (as the british say, I know I am sounding geeky, here, but bear with me.

One constantly find oneself drawn in and think "what would I have done?" "has he thought of this and that?" - like a detective story, or a mystery were you're supposed to figure out what happens next.

In short, I enjoyed this greatly and although I had to repeatedly ask myself while reading how something so far fetched could properly end, the author surprised and pleased me even on that account.

So, I sincerely recommend this! (There, and I think I did even without blurbing any spoilers...)
