by Stephen King
Stephen King, master of suspense, has rewritten history, in this story of a high school teacher who can travel through a time portal from 2011 into 1958. Not only can he travel back in time, but no matter how long he stays in the past he can return to the present and only two minutes have passed. Given this opportunity the protagonist starts off granting the wishes of friends from stopping the murder of a family, to stopping the assassination of JFK. In the meantime he lives out his days in texas waiting for 1963 to arrive. This book allows King to indulge in nostalgia for a time gone as well as the science fiction implications of changing history. A book with interesting ideas, that will intrigue you but not leave your brain hurting, plus reading Stephen King should always be part of your summer.
