Bookends – Bookreview- 11.22.63 by Stephen King – Citizen of the Century (2012)

The following blog has spoilers for the Stephen King book 11.22.6 this is your one and only warning.

STEPHEN KING 11.22.63

The day that chnged the world. 

What if you could change it back ?
On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
If you had the chance to change history, would you?

Would the consequesnces be worth it?

The Book so far – Jake ran away back to the motel room and wrote page after page of the whole adventure he’s had but knows in the end no matter want he tries time will try and stop so he buries the pages and goes back to the time hole and Zack

And now the Conclusion

  1. Jake is now back in 2011 packs his car and all he has in the world and ends out Lisbon on the way he checks the Morning Star newspaper for Sadie but he can’t find anything in 1963  but for April 30
  2. 77 year old saves Sadie Dunhill from ex husband in just same way they he the first time
  3. Jake crys himself to sleep
  4. So he walks away from the internet 
  5. But now in April of 2012 when Erin Tolliver moves from Kileen Texas and has The Weekly Gazette
  6. So he looks it up on line and finds Jodie picks Citizen of the Century and its a eighty year old Sadie So off Jake goes
  7. Jodie has changed a little bit different shops but Sadie is still there having served as it mayor and in the state legislature she know by everyone and she knows them
  8. After the speakers and the dancing Jake gets his change to talk to her and calls himself George once again. Sadie looks at him she knows him but from were she not sure and then he asks her who was the chaperone at the Sadie Hawkins dance. The song around then changes to Glenn Miller’s in the Mood and they dance and she asks Jake/George who he really is.

What I think – So that’s the end of the story that’s the end of the book Jake goes back to Jodie and tries to convince a very old lady that he knows everything about her. In the end I knew they would have been together Sadie lived the almost same life she once did with Jake. It does leave a question in my head well to questions really did Jake Accelerate things by being there in the first place she still got slashed with the razor by her ex-husband only it happened later on and The depression and The Failed suicide attempt who was there to rescue her this time around.

But those are questions that will never be answered they don’t really need to be we have our happy ending of a kind two people have their happiness. And that all you can really ask of a book my Stephen King the people die the first time around still die but its no one fault just time.

Did I enjoy this book yes, yes I did would I read it again maybe and if they made it into a movie or TV show would I watch it no I don’t think so the endding here leaves to may unanswered questions and I don’t think people want to see an old woman as the Heroine of the peace. So they would change the ending and have Jake live in the 1950s so fundamentally then changing the whole reason he can’t stay 

The last few pages of the book has taken up by something called afterwards which is Mr Kings way of showing us the technical detail that went into creating this book I will not write about it because it does take you out of the world somewhat

This is normally the part of the blog where I say see you next week but this the last entry for 11.22.63 I do hope you have enjoyed the witness taking each chapter and the previous one analysing it a little bit and giving you a really bad bones version the book in the hopes that you will seek it out yourself as it would be completely unfair of me to word for word transcribe the work of Mr Stephen King and others.

In two weeks time I will be returning with another book but this time we are going to change the format ever so slightly it’s not going to be a straight out stand-alone story they’re going to be what are called tie in books, They will tie into a television show, This first one will be a book from a man who doesn’t really exist and hopefully you will join me for that.

And if you don’t that’s fine I hope you like what you read and you enjoyed the journey I took you on, but do come back you’re more than welcome. But for now whoever you are and whoever you be. Thank you sharing your time with me.

STEPHEN KING 11.22.63

The day that chnged the world.

On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
If you had the chance to change history, would you?

The Book so far – Jake has been to the 2011 to the future of a living JFK and the North Vietnam had a bomb drop on it and lot of earthquakes and race riots, but he comes back and before Zack can send him back to the unchanged 2011 Jake runs away.

And now the continuation (It written as diary entrys)

Jake is hold up in the motel using the money the FBI gave him wirting filling note pads I knows he can’t save Kennedy, Harry or the girl from the starry shooter but can he have Sadie or will cost to much 

Still living in the motel Jake try to think, but want if he just stopped Clayton, So he starts to write to Deke Simmons but no that’s not going to he has to go back even though he’s a man out of time and in love

What I think – I guess will all the hate, violence and death we needed this chapter Jake sitting down taking stock of want to do next, raging and railing against time or whatever. Finally accepting you cannot change time he literally buried the whole adventure and walks back to 2011

I know is a short blog post for this week but it was a small section, but That’s your lot for is week So as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for the next few pages and until then bye for now and see you next week.


Bookends – Bookreview- 11.22.63 by Stephen King – Part Six – The Green Card Man- Chapter ThirtyOne

nthe following blog has  spoilers for the Stephen King book 11.22.6 this is your one and only warning.

STEPHEN KING 11.22.63

The day that chnged the world. 

What if you could change it back ?
On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
If you had the chance to change history, would you?

Would the consequesnces be worth it?

The Book so far – Jake makes it back to time hole to Be greeted by a person calling himself Zack Lang he and the yellow card man are watches who feel the changes in the time lines, He tells Jake to go see for himself the mess that now is the future and to come back so things can reset.

Jake finds the world a war zone, but also Harry in a wheelchair

And now the Continuation

  1. Harry takes Jack to him home, and has no idea who Jake is
  2. The earth is taring itself apart there Earthquakes are most daily and a nuclear reactor and a bombs have been falling the past number of years But Kennedy lived and won re-election
  3. There has been no war in North Vietnam and no civil rights act just race riots and the North over running the south, Kennedy is voted out and George Wallace is President and drops an a bomb on Saigon. Jake starts to lose the thread a little but it becomes clear the world is at war 
  4. Jake looks at Harry’s family and talk a little then Harry asks did he kill his father and Jake says no
  5. Jake takes his leave of Harry and heads back though the time hole
  6. Once on the other side Jake see Zack who starting to become the yellow card man, Zack tells Jake to go back to the real 2011 but Jake running in the other direction as fast as he can

What I Think – So there we have it, the world went to hell not only just to the people who live in it, but the world itself filled with earthquakes plus the atomic have been dropped once again, We don’t get to see or hear from Al one last time which is a little bit of a shame because I would have been nice to see how his life worked out and he was the whole reason for Jake to take over.

We do get a little about Harry and his family, he ever asks Jake out right if he kiled his father but Jake says no yet with the way they have been talking it becomes clear he had something to do with.

Jake reaction when Zack asks him to reset the wold is I guess want would happen in the real word just run away, Knowing Sadie is once again living and can be saved Zack is no shape to chase him down, I have no idea want Jake will do next knowing that wantever he changes little or big will dange the world and maybe Zack will come after him

And quick scan of the rest of the book tells me there are three sections left but they not numbered chapters how they fit into the story I am not sure. And so that’s your lot for is week as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for those pages and until then bye for now and see you next week.


Bookends – Bookreview- 11.22.63 by Stephen King – Part Six – The Green Card Man- Chapter Thirty

The following blog has spoilers for the Stephen King book 11.22.6 this is your one and only warning.

STEPHEN KING 11.22.63

The day that chnged the world. 

What if you could change it back ?
On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
If you had the chance to change history, would you?

Would the consequesnces be worth it?

The Book so far – Jake is now living in a world were JFK lives and doesn’t want to play the hero much to the delight of the FBI so after talking things though to he’s FBI handler they come to a mutually agreed plan George/Jake will disappear and go and live life quietly somewhere else. Jake is given the means to walk away and takes it, On the way he hears on the radio that Sadie is to be given a Estate Heroes funeral and be buried in Arlington Cemetery with a guard of honour.

And now the continuation.

  1. Jake makes to Maine and buys himself a coat after seeing his photo in the newspaper
  2. He gets the same room in the same motel, and sleeps in the morning he calls a taxi and thinks about going home but home is not 2011 its Jodie or it will be soon
  3. Getting in the taxi the driver tells him about a earthquake in which JFK has been killed in time making sure Kennedy is dead
  4. Paying for the taxi with FBI money Jake heads over to the time hole only to find a young man with the same kind of fedora as the yellow card man only this time the card is green.
  5. The man and the one who came before are watches people who keep an eye out for time holes But Al made the last one go mad with all the buying of food, The trips hurt the watcher and the end up killing themselves not only that time has its ways and if Jake doesn’t come back after seeing the new future the whole of Reality will end
  6. Jake walks through the hole leaving 1963 
  7. Something is very wrong, the world is a war zone the building that once stood are long gone replaced by shell covered in Graffiti, groups of lad are running wild and Jake/George is some what scared and after saving a guy in wheelchair bumps into Harry

    What I Think – Well we have our answers, some of them, time is something you can’t mess with or not only will it try and kill you it will kill everyone on the earth. And we have people called watches who be first people to feel the changes first.

    It wasn’t totally expected that the world Jake sees when he goes back though the time hole would be bad, its just a question of how bad it will become. And if we will see anymore of Al I do feel as though the watcher Zack has been ticked on Ok he tries to explain that Jake has to come back but already know he wants to and needs to if he’s any hope of saving Sadie. And the thing with card could have been done another way.

    That’s your lot for is week So as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for the next chapter and until then bye for now and see you next week.


    Bookends – Bookreview- 11.22.63 by Stephen King – Part Six – The Green Card Man- Chapter Twentynine

    The following blog has spoilers for the Stephen King book 11.22.6 this your one and only warning.

    STEPHEN KING 11.22.63

    The day that chnged the world. 

    What if you could change it back ?
    On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
    President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
    If you had the chance to change history, would you?

    Would the consequesnces be worth it?

    The Book so far – Jake and Sadie Do their best to make it to the Dallas Plaza Lee Harvey Oswald, but everytime they go somewhere or make a turn down the street something or someone stops them first their car gets into an accident second the bus drives into a lamppost and nearly fractures Sadie’s face and III when they eventually find someone to take them he runs off with the money they gave them in the end they half drag themselves up the stairs of the Book Depository Jake is able maybe to stop Lee Harvey Oswald but only at the cost of Sadie’s is life.

    And now the continuation

    1. Jake is picked up and taken into custody
    2. They take the shirt with Sadie’s blood on it 
    3. The doctor who would have tried to save JFK is now here So Kennedy lives and Jake/George is in pain
    4. The FBI come next 
    5. Jake plays with the FBI man telling him things that he should have done and things LHO has done even the fact that Lee had contact the FBI in the end Jake tells some truth
    6. Jake fills in the rest of the story and get a phone call from JFK
    7. Kennedy thanks Jake/George for saving his life
    8. Jake calls Deke from the same hotel room he rented the first time in Dallas now the FBI foot the bills
    9. The next day the FBI come back and after a long talk Jake and they think its best he just disappears 
    10. Jake is told to write a letter play the hero who wants to be left alone, and as he does Jackie Kennedy calls
    11. With the clothes ride and a bus ticket the FBI gives him Jake makes it to little rock with Sadie’s memory in his head
    12. The following day making his way to the rabbit hole Jake hears on the radio Sadie will get a heroes funeral.

    What I think – The time line has been beat, the President is save and Sadie is a hero all a nice neat story, But the book was never about that in the end sure it may look like that in first few chapters but since Sadie became a full player in this tail. Its the real story Jake/George helping her and the old caretaker and that is a wonderful thing you don’t need and huge time travel Separation of Alternate realities just a simple man trying to change two lives the rest of the book I’m guessing will be about him trying to change everything back again and get Sadie once again by his side without losing sight of saving the caretaker and try and then to explain to the owner of the Diner what he really did.

    It was a an interesting touch to have Kennedy and Jackie ring Jake/George still even better when the FBI agent gave him the political leaning of the people he worked and why they would simply let him walk away, Hope that we get to see want world has come to now that Kennedy has lived. If only for a few seconds and we don’t fall under the old cliché of the world being better if it had remain the same.

    We Know Jake is going to change the past once again he’s going to take a few steps into his alternate future and then returned down the rabbit hole once again but I don’t want the reason to be the Kennedy living made the world a worse place in Kennedy dead we know the reason is for Sadie and anything more would laying it on thick.

    That’s your lot for is week So as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for the next chapter and until then bye for now and see you next week.

    The following blog has spoilers for the Stephen King book 11.22.6 this your one and only warning.

    STEPHEN KING 11.22.63

    The day that chnged the world. 

    What if you could change it back ?
    On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
    President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
    If you had the chance to change history, would you?

    Would the consequesnces be worth it?

    The Book so far – Jake slowly works out That the key on his key chain opens the safe deposit box in a bank, he tracked down the back opposite safe deposit box finding hours notes his memory Returns in a flash and he knows he has to get back to Dallas and find Mr Lee Harvey Oswald. All of this he has yet to tell Sadie who is now covering a lesson for one of the sick teachers,

    He pays off his old/new landlord for access to the old house and makes himself at home and gets settled in for the night having a few nightmares along the way of the yellow card man when he opens his eyes Sadie has managed to track him down and is standing by his bedside.

    And now the Continuation

    1. Sadie is really there and Jake wants her to go but in the end, they make a plan to work together
    2. As they leave one of the little girls ask Jake about Sadie and then he asks her about buses
    3. Jake waits for a bus to come down the street then follows it as Sadie tells him how she found him, as they make their way the car blows a tire
    4. They make it to the side of the road and get someone to go for help
    5. They get on the bus and even get a seat Jake works out they have two hours until LHO makes it to
    6. Now the past is trying it’s best not be changed as the bus suddenly gets into a crash Jake gets Sadie out of the way and they carry on
    7. They try to pay for a ride to Dallas, but the guy tries to run off, So they car Jack him and Sadie starts to believe Jake about time 
    8. They take the car as far as they can
    9. Sadie pays a beggar for one of his crutches
    10. Jake finds a key in his coat for a car and maybe there will be a car somewhere that it fits and yes there is
    11. They are blocked once again and this time they have to walk
    12. Together they make it to the book depositary and Jake Suddenly remembers the gentleman that works there I missed a Bonnie Ray and bangs on the door he lets them in and head for the stairs
    13. Now fighting just to breathe Jake runs crawls and falls up the stairs
    14. Jake reaches the floor first he tries to stop Lee but the first try fails Lee then turns his gun just as Sadie reaches the floor he hit her square in the chest and down she falls dead, Jake shoots again but miss even more but JFK is pass and safe now

    What I Think -And so it happened the chapter that I was waiting for, Where everything that could go wrong did go wrong. Where no matter want Jake did time, fate or whatever you call it kicked him in the face both first physically and then mentally. Sadie and Jake get into a car which ends up in a crash they then get a bus which ends up in a road traffic accident and they are both physically injured, they tried to buy a lift off a gentlemen and tries to run away with the money Sadie gets assaulted when she tries to buy a crutch for Jake so we can walk, and finally when they do make she gets shot straight to the heart falls down dead.

    So all in all not a very nice chapter I knew it was coming I Knew that Mr Stephen King would twist the knife ever so slightly even though he hinted throughout the book that Jake and Sadie were still together. It would have been a lot better I think if they hasn’t succeeded if they hadn’t made it to the end it would have made a better truer picture to the whole time travel story now we have a mentally scarred Jake as he has to not only deal with the fact that he may have failed to save John F Kennedy but the fact that Sadie is dead and there is no coming back from death.

    I’m guessing the rest of the book will be about how he deals with this he is still got to get himself either back through the time hole and restart this hole then which would be an idea he goes back through everything resets, Meets Sadie again with or without saving the janitors family the end of story he tried history with let him be. Nice a simple.
    Or He can live out the rest of his life beginning in 1963 in a world where Kennedy lived, and having to deal with the fallout from that.

    The honest truth I think he should take the first option reset everything how many lives has he screwed up how many lives has he touched and changed just simply by being there if he goes back to the 21st century and then enters the time whole Again everything reset everything is just as it was he may be able to rectify the fact that Sadie gets killed by her husband and save the janitor but that would be it he wouldn’t do any major changes to the timeline because the time wouldn’t let him.

    That’s your lot for is week So as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for the next chapter and until then bye for now and see you next week.

    The following blog has Spoilers the Stephen King book 11.22.6 this your one and only warning.

    STEPHEN KING 11.22.63

    The day that chnged the world. 

    What if you could change it back ?
    On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
    President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
    If you had the chance to change history, would you?

    Would the consequesnces be worth it?

    The Book so far – Jake is slowly recovering from the beating, but has huge amount of memory loss first about who his and want his history is. Over seven weeks with help from Sadie he’s able to peace togeter his real life. But his unable to remember the vital piece of information about who is going to kill Kennedy.

    And now the continuation

    1. Jake tells Sadie about the future as she heads home
    2. Alone now Jake finds a set of keys which jog his memory a little and comes up with a name Oswald Rabbit and the maybe name of a bank
    3. Sadie calls and ask if Jake pulling her leg about President Obama
    4. One of the nurses gives Jake some pills which he Pretends to take and then ask him whether or not they have  round the people that beat him up, which the answer is no and then ask want he was doing Jake has no idea
    5. Jake gets more visitors and a phone call from Sadie asks if he’s remembering things but nothing and he will take a nap but in the end he takes a drive
    6. Jake is able to find the right bank and his box with Lee Harvey Oswald name in the notebook
    7. He’s memory comes back in a flash everything, then he find a ring he’d brought as cover
    8. On the way home Jake is pulled over by a cop, his mind still trying to process the memories, Sadie rings and he tells her a lie about were he’s been.
    9. Jake watches TV and reads Al notes which turn JFK from a Legendary figure into a simply a man.
    10. After talking to a old man Jake makes a plan using his tossed away gun
    11. Sadie calls the following day still covering a class, asking Jake if he’s though about anything more and again Jake says no but he’s working on shooting LHO
    12. He goes back to his old home and picks up his gun
    13. Jake walks to Elm street and sit on the bench If he killed LHO now he would maybe end up In jail or a psychiatric Hospital And if he did shoot him on the day he’d need help.
    14. Waking in the night Jake works out that Sadie knows he’s been lying
    15. He writes her a letter says things will be ok and not to try and find him
    16. She reads the note Jake just hopes she does want he asks
    17. Jake takes over LHO old home paying $50 to the landlord
    18. The ghost of Lee and Marina keep Jake a wake
    19. In the daytime and unable to eat Jake watches the TV and Air Force One arriving in San Antonio
    20. The night comes and still unable to eat Jake sits the darkness and falls asleep only to wake up with Sadie by the bed.

    Want I Think. The chapter is all about rebuilding Jake world so as such it does cover a lot of old ground but thankfully very quickly, And when Jake gets the notebook back it just case of linking everything back up. And the fact that Sadie is not just written as dumb to kept in the dark but she goes out of her way to find Jake at the end helps make the relationship more believable.

    I am not sure want the ending will be for the two of them now, Jake can’t hunt down LHO and kill him now and he never really was, no matter how much he wanted to talk himself into doing so and now Sadie is by him side now. I don’t think any killing will take place or that LHO will be stopped totally and it will really become a question of how they if anything they do to slow him down just a little.

    That’s your lot for is week So as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for the next chapter and until then bye for now and see you next week.



    Bookends – Bookreview- 11.22.63 by Stephen King – Part Five – 11.22.63- Chapter TwentySix

    The following blog has spoilers the Stephen King book 11.22.6 this your one and only warning.

    STEPHEN KING 11.22.63

    The day that chnged the world. 

    What if you could change it back ?
    On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
    President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
    If you had the chance to change history, would you?

    Would the consequesnces be worth it?

    The Book so far – Sadie has the first visit to the hospital, and all goes will even if one of the teachers try to make Jake and Sadie life hell. Jake needs a bit more money so lays down a bet on a fight so he can help Sadie they talk With the eventual conclusion that Jake tell the whole truth about why he’s here and John F Kennedy.

    They go to the fight and a fighter Jake has bet on wins, so he goes to collect his money the problem is that he’s followed around Dallas by the gentleman who he placed the bet with at the very beginning in fact his boss has completely gone insane trying to track him down and he gets beaten up.

    And now the continuation. (there is only one section for this chapter)

    Jake is taken to hospital and for seven weeks his Conditions from critical too serious and then back to Critical again, as the doctors set about Trying to put him back together using all knowledge they have. in the end just about saving his life.

    With the beating, the The medical procedures and the drugs the doctors have been pumping into him Jake’s mind begins to play tricks he can’t remember Sadie’s name and has a panic attack and several unfortunate incidents. And begins the long road to recovery.

    In fact his mind is in total free fall, driven but something he tries to tell Sadie and the rest of the world about Kennedy and is Haunted by the yellow card man. He slowly slowly Remembers who he is and one night tell Sadie about Frank Dunning.

    The bottom line is that Jake Just about knows who he is but doesn’t remember who’s going to assassinate Kennedy so Sadie and.Deke and help him remember as Jake fights the yellow card man in his head with Al by his side

    Sadie has the idea that could go for a drive to jog Jake memory this doesn’t work not completely anyway they find a church with the words here is the word of god almighty but there a few letters missing and in Jake mind to becomes The word of Al ighty then eventually the word of Al slowly Jake able to piece together that the information that he needs is in a notebook and a notebook is in a safe place.

    What I Think – First of all before we get into what I think this I would like to point out that the plan that I originally had was to have read the book on the anniversary of the actual events and the last chapter would have been this week however I hadn’t worked out exactly length and pages so we are not going make this by a couple of weeks unfortunately. So my apologies for that

    I’m not saying I told you so but, I knew something like this would happen,. Not in so dramatica fashion and not the point of this chapter driving me slowly up the wall with the fact that Jake can’t remember. First of all who he is second that he’s a time traveller and third the very small details of the fact that he was trailing Lee Harvey Oswald for the past 3 years or so.

    It’s nice that we have the war going on inside his head between the yellow card man, Al and want is left of the real Jake. It shows progress but it also begs the question how much has Jake told Sadie and how much has told other people about Jake. We are told Deke says to call the police and tell them what Jake thinks he knows but knows that will just be dismissed, 

    There is also the fact that Sadie still believes that somehow they will be able to remember fully and completely and that also if he will recover they will take one last trip.

    Like I said before I’m not reading the head so I don’t know how many chapters exactly we have left and what the outcome will be but I know by what we have read that we are coming to the end of the book. If you need something else happens to Jake turning him into the yellow card man I will be very disappointed I know we cannot have a sunshine Happy Days ending as it is a Stephen King book because he is known for writing very unusual and interesting twists in his books.

    what it would be nice however is that Jake and Sadie get to live out their lives together no matter how or what happens. 

    That’s your lot for is week So as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for the next chapter and until then bye for now and see you next week.

    7. Sadie plans a weekend away
    8. Jake and Sadie talk about Lee, She why not just call the cops Jake tells her it not going to work and talking to Lee himself could maybe put the idea in there
    9. They go to the fight.
    10. Sadie bets with the guy next to her
    11. the fight doesn’t start well for Jake’s boy in fact he almost ends up face down and the man next to Sadie tells her to pay up but something changes and Tiger wins
    12. Sadie asks is hate that drives Jake to want to stop Lee no he says is sorrow

    14. The bookie has sent a few guys after Jake so he starts looking for his gun

    16. Jake crawls outside and into the road were the old woman from months before calls ambulance
    17. Also Jake car has been stolen

    What I Think – So there we have it the real reason Jake might not make the score Book Depository, having the Beating of his life from all the bets he’s layed down over the past. This chapter wasn’t about Sadie or trying to convince her about the future not even about the medical advances and the hope that he can take her back to the 21th century it was all about trying to stop him from being able to stop Lee when the time came. He was able to off people from the school who they were trying to get Sadie he was able to make more money than ever needed, And also work out there was no great conspiracy between Lee and the Cuban revolutionaries so that had to be something.
    There are a few more chapters exactly how many I’m not sure because I’m not going to skip ahead count them, but safe to say we are coming to the end of the story I have a feeling Jake and Saide will not stop Lee in the end, Sadie Sadie has to come into it somewhere now taking a more active role even though Jake is dead against it using no position to argue so it will be interesting to find out .

    So as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for the next chapter and until then bye for now and see you next week.


    Bookends – Bookreview- 11.22.63 by Stephen King – Part Five – 11.22.63- Chapter TwentyFour

    The following blog has spoilers for the Stephen King book 11.22.63 this your one and only warning.

    STEPHEN KING 11.22.63

    The day that chnged the world. 

    What if you could change it back ?
    On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
    President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
    If you had the chance to change history, would you?

    Would the consequesnces be worth it?

    The Book so far – Sadie is now in hospital, and the world thinks that it was another teacher that saved her for her ex, but in truth it was Jake. Sadie family still believe it was of her own making. But Jake tells her to forget them all. They setup a home together but still have hide it from the world. And for now LHO is out of the picture.

    And now the continuation.

    1. Some of the school and the people who know Sadie plan to re stage the Jodie Jamboree, for her and Jake gets her doctor to play as well
    2. But the people who run the school will not let them have the hall and in truth want to fire Sadie. Jake and Deke go 50/50 on the cost of a new place
    3. Jake sees a poster for a boxing match which makes him think of Rocky Balboa
    4. In june Jake is rehearsing the play with half a mind of LHO and Marina and Sadie still hasn’t left the house since that night
    5. Jake is worrying about Sadie and with Ellen Dockerty turning up things are a little more worrying
    6. The first night of the jamboree goes well and Sadie makes a unplanned appears 
    7. At the end of the night Jake goes to see Sadie who welcomes him home
    8. They spend the morning together
    9. After breakfast Jake tells Sadie first about a place were they can go but not come back, and tells her the truth about trying to save Kennedy.
    10. He tells Sadie the winner of the prize fight so she has something to believe him.
    11. The second night goes will to and Sadie just wants Jake to be safe and they will talk after the fight
    12. But now Jake is scared for Sadie she might become a kind of Marina Prusakova exiled from all she knows
    13. Jake goes and finds a new contact so he can place one last bet
    14. He goes to the bank and makes sure Al was right, and buys a costume.
    15. Jake planned to see De Mohrenschildt but changes his mind he works out that De is just in it for the money.
    16. Jake puts down the bet.

    What I think – Like I said in the last blog this is want the book is really about Jake and Sadie JFK and the time travel was just the Catalyst for meeting each other how it all works out is the key to the whole thing, knowing its a Stephen King book they will not just walk off into the sunset arm in arm, something or someone will step in the way of that. Jake can’t take Sadie into the 21th Century it would just be to much and I don’t think they will be able to stay in Jodie after  22 11 63 so that leaves being together and staying out of histories way.

    So as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for the next chapter and until then bye for now and see you next week.
