El 22 de noviembre de 1963, tres disparos resonaron en Dallas. Murió el presidente Kennedy, y el mundo cambió. ¿Qué harías tú si pudieras impedirlo?
En esta brillante novela, Stephen King acompaña al lector en un viaje maravilloso al pasado y en un intento de cambiar lo que pasó, ofreciéndonos un impecable retrato social, político y cultural del final de los años cincuenta y principios de los sesenta: un mundo marcado por enormes coches, Elvis Presley y el constante humo de cigarrillo.
Todo empieza con Jake Epping, un profesor de inglés que se gana un sueldo extra con clases nocturnas para adultos. Un día pide a sus estudiantes que escriban sobre un acontecimiento que les haya cambiado la vida, y una de esas redacciones le impacta profundamente: la historia de una noche de hace cincuenta años cuando el padre de su alumno Harry Dunning volvió a casa para matar a su familia. Poco después su amigo Al, propietario de un restaurante en su barrio, le descubre un increíble secreto: en el almacén del restaurante hay una puerta que conduce al pasado. Y Al pide a Jake que le ayude con una misión que le obsesiona: impedir el asesinato del Presidente John F. Kennedy. Y así comienza la nueva vida de Jake en un mundo muy diferente. En él, Jake se enamorará mientras sigue el rastro de Lee Harvey Oswald hacia ese crucial momento histórico. Un viaje al pasado nunca ha sido tan creíble, ni tan terrorífico.

Stephen King could probably turn a book about paint drying into a bestseller. His newest effort, though, has loftier ambitions. It's about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, a what-if science fiction take on a subject that's been tackled over and over again by historians.

There's a good story buried in all these pages and all this history, but you might want to wait for the movie version to find it.

Last year I finished Under the Dome and thought, “Wow, Stephen King, your books don’t freak me the heck out like they once did!” (Okay, that might be my fault for reading The Stand when I was eleven - or my parents’ fault!) So when I saw that 11/22/63 had come out, I wanted to read it.

San Francisco Chronicle

The earlier book is among King's best - lean, tight and unforgiving - and this new novel, despite its undeniable suspense, sometimes feels like a bloated shadow.

The squirrelly Oswald -- searching and put-upon, volatile and obsessed -- would fit comfortably in almost any King novel.

There’s a what-if, time-travel game commonly played by college students, drunks and wannabe science fiction writers, and it goes like this: If you could go back in time and kill Adolph Hitler when he was a child, would you do it?

Fine-toothed research and sharp writing give us the taste, sound and texture of a lost world — there are moments where the late ’50s and early ’60s are described with such clarity and affection that they felt achingly familiar, even to this reviewer (a child of the ’80s).
