Stephen King ð Eleven twenty two sixty three mobi

Ination So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK of big American cars and sock hops 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 tim Another big big King book downThis was truly and epic tale While I know every author has to do research to make sure that the book makes sense and doesn’t sound ridiculous this had to be the most research King has ever had to put into a book 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 two most common themes of this book are will the past allow itself to be changed? and the butterfly effect one little change flap of a butterfly wing starting a chain reaction that leads to a landslide on the other side of the world If you don’t have your history ducks in a row it will be very hard to sell these themes but King sells them very wellI liked the extensive storytelling in this one It almost felt like 5 different novelsstorylines crammed into one Any of them would be an interesting story by itself but none of them truly appreciated unless combined with all of the others I think that some may find that it is too much or that the story drags in places with inner monologue screaming “get to the point already” This didn’t happen for me but I could definitely understand it if some felt that way 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 – uick places slow places exposition character development backstory etc – all of itCompared to other King? Well the character development interaction and dialogue definitely felt like King At places it felt like a Dark Tower spin off maybe a little like The Talisman There are direct references to some of his other novels view spoilerspecifically IT and Christine hide spoiler

Eleven twenty two sixty threeJake Epping is a thirty five year old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls Maine who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program He receives an essay from one of the students a gruesome harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mo “We never know which lives we influence or when or why” I still fail to understand why Stephen King isn't considered a writer of respected literature 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 And 112263 is no exception I've been putting this book off for the last few years; partly because it's an 800 page giant and partly because I studied the hell out of Kennedy and 1950s60s America back in high school 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 soonerThis 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?; it's a small town thriller; and it's a love storyKing 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 1958 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 homophobiaThe 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 and showing the darker side segregation and the two doors and three signs Men on one door Women on the other door and Colored leading to a plank of wood over a small stream He makes this era seem like a bright amazing creepy nightmareI thoroughly enjoyed it Unlike some of King's other works the 800 pages didn't feel like too much to me and they just seemed to fly by So glad I finally read itBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr
