Book Pick: Latest Stephen King

If you could go back in time and change history, should you?

Stephen King keeps you on the edge of your seat in his latest, 11/23/63.  Jake Epping teaches GED classes and is moved by a student's essay about how his father murdered his mother and siblings back in the late 1950s.

When Jake's friend Al Templeton shows him a portal or "rabbit hole" to  September 1958 and charges him with finding and stopping Lee Harvey Oswald before he assassinates the president, Jake also tries to stop the murderous rampage of his student's father.

But it comes with a price; each action has a consequence.  The real question is, are the consequences worse?  Or should history be left alone?

King's masterful storytelling hooks you from the first page, and although it's a weighty tome (over 850 pages), it's a gripping pagetuner to the very last sentence.

Will you read it?
