11/22/63: A Novel

11/22/63 - Stephen King On the virtue of the writing, I'd give it 2 competent and workman stars, on the strength of the story, it earns two more to become a better book.A time travel story, and a love story, the book has a splendid pace, only really bogging down in a couple short places, and regaining it's tempo quickly. In the afterword King credits his son for teh ending, which is quite nice, I think. As I'm leading a discussion on this book, I'll leave the more detailed descriptions to other reviewers.
