Stephen King's New Book Is A Must-Have!

Just in time for Christmas, Stephen King has published his new book '11-22-63'.  It's a story of Jake Epping, an English teacher of Lisbon High School who is handed the opportunity to step back into the 1950's... literally.  How he does this is through the pantry of his local burger joint owned by a friend of his who suddenly closes it down.  However, it's why his friend has offered Jake this unique opportunity; it's to see if he can save John F Kennedy's life.

I found out last Sunday this book was coming out on the market on 8th, November.  On that very day, I ordered it in through QBD.  Within two days, I received the phone call that my copy of SK's new book had arrived and was waiting for me.  By last Friday, it was in my hands and I had cracked it opened and began reading it before the sun went down; and I haven't stopped reading it since. 
Seeing how quickly I raced out and bought 'Under The Dome', I did find myself hesitating about ordering this one in.  However, once I read how many people loved it on Goodreads, I thought to try it out.  And if I don't like it?  Well, I could always give it to my Dad.  He did like 'The Da Vinci Code' when I didn't.  Until my next post, happy reading!


  1. I was spending a lot of the Wellington Unconvention time reading this. King knows how to tell a tale, and he links a few of my favourite themes here. Almost couldn't put it down a few times, and the hours just slipped away.

  2. I spent many reading this book - whiling away the hours until around 1am. Then, trying to figure out why I'm completely stuffed the next day; and then a few days later, I'll go and get my nose stuck into it again... doing exactly the same thing!

    Silly me!.... Fantastic King!
