This is the latest Stephen King book (or should I call it a tome?). I rather enjoyed it. When I first heard about it, I was not looking forward to reading it because 1. it is a time travel novel and I'm not normally into science fiction and 2. it is about a historical event (the assassination of President Kennedy) and I'm not all that into history, either. But, as it turns out, it was a pretty good read. It took me a little while to get into it, but at 800+ pages, this was not a surprising development. The time travel stuff was kept to a minimum (that is, it wasn't a book about time travel, it just involved time travel) and it wasn't much of a lesson in history, either (the bulk of the book took place in the late 50s and early 60s but was reminiscent of "It" and "Stand by Me").
