11/22/63 - Stephen King King's big time-travel novel, in which an English teacher attempts to stop Lee Harvey Oswald from shooting JFK, is ridiculously captivating in its premise and utterly unique in its spin on time-travel. It's interesting that the book ultimately becomes more of a love story, but King held me rapt throughout, despite my expectations. That said, this didn't have to be a 900-page novel. Cuts could have been made.
