Stephen King’s hotly anticipated new novel has a seemingly simple premise: If 35-year-old English teacher Jake Epping can travel back in time, he’ll be able to save John F. Kennedy’s life on that fateful November day in Dallas. The trip itself should be easy, since Jake’s friend conveniently has a time portal in his diner that leads straight back to 1958. But is five years enough to change the course of history? Only time — and 864 pages! — will tell.
