We see little echoes from Pennywise the Clown era in Derry, meet our favorite 1958 Plymouth Fury (Hellllloooo there, Christine! Oswald just does not fit the profile for a guy that could pull off an assassination of this magnitude. I 've read both of them and have been meaning to ask him if he would consider putting the first version on the site so people could compare.

Fans of his story "It" may be excited to know he revisits the town of Derry, Maine, where "It" was located. There's some momentary advance remorse about that, but not much, because Oswald is known to have killed Kennedy in the real timeline. 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 mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer.Quite unexpectedly, a lot of pages cover a love story between the MC and a sexy librarian from a small town, Jodie. the events that occur in the Dunning household are truly terrifying, with some of the most graphic and unforgettable descriptions King has ever written. 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 time. I was in a college class where our teacher (an otherwise fun and engaging lecturer and knowledgeable professor – and published author) said something to the effect that King’s work was “good enough for the working class”.

Oh – anyway, you came from the very near future and you decided the most important thing to do was to stop me writing one particular review on Goodreads of one dubious Stephen King novel?Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on novels.

When Jake finishes his work in Derry, he moves ultimately to the small town of Jodie, Texas where he becomes a part of the community and falls in love with one of his colleagues, the new school librarian, Sadie Dunhill. While we're at it, sexism: our hero is a guy who starts dating a woman in about 1961, and he also spends a number of years teaching high school (don't get me started on that--an English teacher from 2011 travels back 50 years and starts teaching adolescents seamlessly, without having any trouble adjusting to the loss of the most recent five decades of writing to teach from?He was a man that had been to war, and I find it hard to believe he would have committed American kids to die in the jungles of Southeast Asia. The contrast between how Boyle gives a sense of 1970 and how King gives a sense of 1960 is vertiginous.

The attention to detail is staggering - I personally cannot say how much of it is accurate as I don't know much about the JFK assassination - but I'm guessing King left no stone unturned. Al went through the rabbit hole over and over for years and discovered that no matter how long you stay, when you go back through the portal, only two minutes have elapsed since you left.She becomes angry at his refusal to tell Sadie what he is up to, but remains Jake's ally when he and Sadie are injured. Since 'a picture is worth a thousand words', the above is a three-thousand-words summary of this book. Sai King, I will continue to be your Constant Reader for hopefully many more years to come, Capital-L Literature or not.
