What he learns is no surprise. Oswald was unpleasant in ordinary ways. Emotional, violent with his wife, unsure of himself and desperate to change a broken world. View all New York Times newsletters. Did he kill Kennedy? But the past, the novel repeatedly reminds us, is obdurate. Under interrogation, it guards its darkest secrets. There are no single crimes. Each act of cruelty or violence is somehow associated — harmonized, King would suggest — with every other act. Inside the past, Amberson learns there are no accidents, no inadvertencies. Just an infernal machine. Tick, tock. Something is at work, O.
Somewhere in the universe or behind it , a great machine is ticking and turning its fabulous gears. There is a darker what-if. What if history is too forceful to redirect?
What if jiggering the engine produces no favorable outcome — merely a postponement of the inevitable? If he had lived, Kennedy might not have escalated the war in Vietnam, and might have kept America out of a bloody mire. What if we were headed there anyway? Then our tampering might only make things worse. It is not historical inevitability, but something close.
At first I found myself mildly irritated by the endless swirl of products. But I came — honestly — to love it. The past is full: of slogans and fry cooks and beautiful cars. And King has an excellent feel for how all of that transpires within the forward roll of history. A universe of horror and loss surrounding a single lighted stage where mortals dance in defiance of the dark.
King has said that he struggled with the idea for this book for more than 30 years. One can see why. In fiction, we can decide who did or did not kill Kennedy. But he pays his debts to history in other ways — by showing the machine and, at the same time, the simplest human knots, the love stories behind history: Sadie and George, Jack and Jackie. It all adds up to one of the best time-travel stories since H. King has captured something wonderful. Published by Hodder Paperbacks From: Ammareal Grigny, France.

Jake Epping is an English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching in an adult education programme.
One day, he receives an essay from one of his students - a harrowing first person story about the night, fifty years earlier, when Harry Dunning's father came home and killed Harry's mother, his sister, and his brother with a sledgehammer. Later, Jake's friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges an extraordinary secret: his storeroom is a portal back to He enlists Jake on an insane - and insanely possible - mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination.
Inspired by his desire to put things right for Harry Dunning, Jake leaves a world of ipods and mobile phones for a new world of elvis and JFK, of big American cars, root beers and Lindy Hopping. It is a haunting world 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. With extraordinary imaginative power, King explores the culture of the era and weaves it into a devastating exercise in escalating suspense.
