Hi my name is Jake Epping and I’m a dull high school English teacher who has decided to go back in time to prevent JFK from being assassinated I’ve decided to do this primarily because a fat man who serves me 53 year old cheeseburgers with whom I share only a vague casual acuaintance has told me that I should There is no other real reason for me to being doing this There really isn’t Once I’m there I will also risk my life to save a bunch of other people that I barely know because I want to demonstrate how amazingly selfless I am It is important to me that I am well liked I will fuck up several times but that is no problem because I have no life and therefore I will simply go back in time again and repeat the experience until I get things right At some point along the way I will fall in love with an 80 year old woman But don’t worry—when I go back in time she’s 27 So that’s no problem eitherAnyway once I view spoilersave JFK and am thanked with a lifetime supply of beer I will finally return to the present But oh no—saving JFK has caused massive earthuakes WHAAA and now the entire country is a complete nuclear wasteland And yet even though there is no plausible reason whatsoever for this to be the case hide spoiler

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. Even though 112263 has been swirling inside my brain for a little over a week now I haven't had the chance to properly sit down and write out a coherent review Life is busy and yet I cannot shake the feeling of pleasure I received from reading this book It is a masterpiece no doubt but also the type of story that is suited to King's old style of dialogue and flair for throwback culture Dare I suggest that this book is the author's unicorn Clearly he is immensely talented and a good number of his other works are amongst my favorite novels of all time but there is something uniue to this historical time traveling fiction that keeps blinking in my peripheral almost like a jealous lover keeping me from fully enjoying any book that I have picked up since finishing this one Maybe writing this review will give me a sense of release or perhaps I'll gear up the old audible and dive in for a reread In the meantime let me try to put into words what most of you have already said since I'm the last person on planet earth to read 112263If I'm wrong about the above statement and you haven't read this yet all you really need to know going in is that an ordinary teacher from present day time travels back to the late 50's in preparation to attempt to prevent JFK's assassination However even that above statement is deceitful because that's literally all I knew about this book going in and it is SO much In fact the JFK stuff doesn't really kick in until the last 35% of the book but please don't take that as a criticism The way that Stephen King chooses to prepare us and lead us up to that moment is nothing short of brilliant; the process in getting to that fateful day is just as suspenseful intriguing and emotional as the climax As unbelievable as it sounds King has written one of the most tender intimate and swoon worthy romances of all time between these pages There are heaps of action suspense and easter eggs planted for fans who have read other books by the author visiting Derry right after the first summer that the Losers Club experienced Pennywise was unreal If you're an audiobook lover I highly suggest listening to this book or at least supplementing your hardcopy with it I would love to see King write something similar to this in the coming years but even if he chooses not to I'll cherish this experience and every reread after as one of the most compelling stories ever written in our contemporary age

Go ahead book snobs Proclaim haughtily that Stephen King is not Literature I shall retort with a Pratchett uote Susan hated Literature She'd much prefer to read a good book And nobody argues with Sir Terry Since 'a picture is worth a thousand words' the above is a three thousand words summary of this book Impressive no And also dancing is lifeAs you probably guessed from the not too spoiler sensitive title 112263 is a book about time travel My love for it is an exception rather than a rule you see I am not usually a fan of the Grandfather paradox Speaking of which “Yeah but what if you went back and killed your own grandfatherHe stared at me baffled Why the fuck would you do that” As the title proceeds to shamelessly tells us the book deals with the assassination of John F Kennedy and if the title fails to convey the message then hopefully you like yours truly have Google pedia'd it Hey don't judge I was born in Eastern Europe Anyway it's another of Stephen King's 'what if' situations What if you could go through a 'rabbit hole' to the past Would you try to change history for the better would you try to right the wrongs Well who wouldn't And so Jake Epping an English teacher sets out to spend half a decade in the past to prevent the assassination of JFK and to figure out whether Lee Harvey Oswald was indeed the lone gunman that day despite all the conspiracy theories As I flipped to the back I kept seeing that double take And the grin A sense of humor; a sense of the absurd The man in the sixth floor window of the Book Depository had neither Oswald had proved it time and again and such a man had no business changing history What if their lives had never intersected “Even people capable of living in the past don't really know what the future holds” The uestion is what would have happened had JFK survived the assassination that day in Dallas Would we still have Vietnam War race riots and Martin Luther King's death Could the lives of many innocent people be spared Could JFK lead the country into a better future Jake believes so But what if the past resists the change What is the price of changing the past The past is obdurate for the same reason a turtle’s shell is obdurate because the living flesh inside is tender and defenseless This book again dispels the long believed but mistaken axiom that Stephen King is a horror writer of a spook and startle variety No in the traditional sense he is not He knows that the true monsters are those that live inside every one of us and ahem occasionally in Derry Maine He has created his own brand of psychological suspense with the brilliant and scary insight into the minds of average everyday people who all have some darkness inside them and a skeleton or two in the closet sometimes uite literally superimposed onto the masterful description of small towns themselves eerily resembling sentient living creatures determined to hold on to their dark secrets And we get plenty of these in this book as Jake's uest to prevent that fateful shot in November in Dallas takes him along the way to the small towns of Derry Maine and Jodie Texas I have an irrational fear of living in a small town thanks to Stephen King What if it turns out to be another Derry or Castle Rock shudder By the way this trip to the past gives plenty of deeeeee licious 'Easter Eggs' to King's Constant Readers We see little echoes from Pennywise the Clown era in Derry meet our favorite 1958 Plymouth Fury Hellllloooo there Christine and even get a nod
