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.

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.

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

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.


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

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.


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

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 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.

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 – Just as Jake is about walk out of the door and hunt down Lee, Marina turns up looking for him, but Jake had no idea were he is so she goes away. The second time he trys the phone rings on the other end is Sadie ex who is now trying to kill her.

With help from another teacher Jake is able to save Sadie but he knows he can’t kill Sadie ex as questions will asked so he beats the living day lights out of him, but when everyone turns their back Sadie’s ex cuts his own throat.

 And now the continuation,

  1. In two newspapers reports tell of a rifleman taking a shot at Major Walker and the other about Deacon Simmons saving Sadie
  2. A few days later Jake gets to see Sadie but is shocked by how primitive hospital she is in, They talk she blames herself and doesn’t want to go back to school, then she asks if he’s missed the thing he was meant to see and Jake tells the turth yes he has.
  3. The Doctor who helped Bobbi jill works in the same hospital
  4. But all he can do is repair all the damage that can be repairable
  5. The small group brake up and Mike and Bobbi have an idea how to help
  6. The Oswald apartment is taken over by the de Mohrenschilts and they find out Lee has rifle but no job.
  7. Jake tries to think of way to kill Lee but there to many questions if he kills in cold blood.
  8. Jake goes to see Sadie and finds out they are more Concerned with her ex-husband. 
  9. Jake Finally gets her to see sense and said he will pay her mortgage so she will not never have to go back home to her mother and that together they will live
  10. On the drive home Sadie has a nightmare about the attack
  11. The school girls and Jo Peet put her house back together
  12. She starts to have more nightmares Jake tells her he’s here now and forever
  13. On April 24 th Jake watches Lee lave Dallas
  14. Jake starts to think he will need more money and betting may work but something makes him change him mind.

What I think – The real part of Jake’s life now to look after Sadie and not chase after Lee and whatever Conspiracy they may or may not be, He knows its getting harder to stop Lee just in the same way it was hard to stop Sadie ex for all the world he’s George the school teacher. Before all this he could have run he could have done back could have reset time. But not now so much has happened he’s in to deep and maybe it was Lee after all.

We are getting to end soon, I know Jake can’t stop the killing I have said that from the start, the book once maybe was about that but now is about him and Sadie how time will push them along and if Jake will live once again in the 21 century.

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


Bookends – Bookreview- 11.22.63 by Stephen King – Part Four – Sadie and The General- Chapter TwentyTwo

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 -.Jake watches Marina meet Ruth Paine and for once  the Oswald family have a happy time, He begins to think about giving up on the whole thing but when he hears Lee and his friends talks conspiracy but somehow miss out the real information. So he has to follow Lee around as he plans his first kill. Jake then sets up a safety box with all the notes and information he has on Oswald and the last few years and hope that one day he will able open it again.

  1. Jake has it all planned out, watching and waiting for Lee but as he leaves there’s a knock on his door and Marina is there
  2. She’s looking for Lee, But Jake doesn’t know were he is, When she’s gone the phone rings and on the other end is a man with a soft southern voice and the sound of Sadie screaming
  3. (the story turns into the third person) Sadie ex husband Johnny Clayton has ransacked and pulled apart her home he makes her call Jake if not he will kill her.
  4. Johnny calls Jake and gives him three and a half hours to do something.
  5. Half way to Jodie Jake calls Deke and they work out an action plan
  6. Using a cover of a casserole delivery they will just to stop Johnny
  7. Jake is able get in the backyard and using the key he gets inside 
  8. Just about Jake is to kill Johnny he realises he can’t kill as he George Amberson identity will all Fall Apart when question so he beats the living crap out of him, When Jake is dealing with Sadie and Deke calling the police Johnny takes him knife cutting his own throat

What I think – Well time or fate, whatever you want to call it has put it’s big size nine feet into Jake’s plans just like I thought it would, With all the messing about with watching and waiting the Oswald family and with simple knock on his door he’s real mission is revealed, and that is help Sadie with her life and in truth that’s want all the book been about the dream of Al’s to stop the killing of JFK and the rest of the stuff is the catalyst for most things, But really it was save Sadie and it would be rather interesting to see how are what steps in the way for the 22th of November to stop Jake from being at dealey Plaza.

It was a odd to have the book switch from Jake’s perspective to third person, and that fact, earlier on but he said he was still wearing the slippers, I had the idea that things were going be just fine. But guess there was no other way of telling us want was going on.

On a more personal it was only a few days ago that I found that what remains of the official documentation of the John F Kennedy assassination are to be released in fact they are released two days ago it being 27th of October 2017 the blog going out on the 28th Saturday I don’t think there will be anything earth shattering in want will be seen and the turth whatever it was will never been fully understood, I know is not aliens or time trave pleople will believe whatever they want. But that’s a discussion for another time.

Next week we start part five of the book with title chapter 11.22.63. So as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for that and until then bye for now.

Bookends – Bookreview- 11.22.63 by Stephen King – Part Four – Sadie and The General- Chapter TwentyOne 

The following 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 – Jake now has two lives one with Sadie who he saved from death because her ex and boyfriend told her the world would end with the Cuban missile crisis, and is still watching Lee and Marina, Who have split up and got back together twice only this time she is pregnant.

  1. It’s now March 2 1963 and the Oswald are now Jake upstairs neighbors and he gets himself a new gun
  2. Back with Sadie Jake thinks he may as well f*** everything and run
  3. Jake hears the Oswald having a happy time for once
  4. Marina meets Ruth Paine
  5. Jake hears want sounds like The very edge of Conspiracy between Oswald and George De Mohrenschildt but at the critical moment something goes wrong with the electronic equipment and Jake hears nothing.
  6. Oswald starts to follow Edwin Walker and Jake follows Oswald
  7. Jake watches Oswald making plans to kill Walker even going so far as to see him set up his Firing position.
  8. Oswald buys a rifle and has his picture taken, But Jake isn’t around to see the photo being taken he’s back in Jodie
  9. In bed with Sadie Jake has a bad dream, it’s still not to late but for want 
  10. Jake tells Sadie his real a that on Wednesday he’s going to witness something that will deside what he does next and in the end they will get married
  11. Jake sets up a box at the bank with all the notes and information he has on Oswald and the last few years and hope that one day he will able open it again

Want I Think – Well we are going to end of things now, Jake is being show three ways out of this mess, one just walk away leaving Sadie and try and find her on the other side of time, Just stop in Jodie with Sadie under his real name or put a bullet in Oswald after or before he trys to kill Walker. Now all he really needed to do in the first place would have been build his life with or without Sadie and one dark night end Oswald, simple. I know I sound like a broken record here but Jake’s been living in the past a good few year just by being there things change. So make the big changes good ones and the bad changes small.

Bookends – Bookreview- 11.22.63 by Stephen King – Part Four – Sadie and The General- Chapter Twenty

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 – Jake has been watching and listening to the LHO household for a good few months now, he watched as Lee beats Marina and how Lee mother controls him, and how Marina is given a job which makes things so much worse, Then the Russian expat start to come around which change things even more they all love Marina and try to get Lee out of the way by doing things for them, In the end with the Combination of all this Lee and Marina separate and the world ends

The beginning of the Cuban missile crisis is a catalyst that Jake uses to call Sadie who is Being manipulated by both the ex husband and new boyfriend into believing she might as well and her own life as the world is going to end very soon itself, Jake is just in time to stop her and even tells her some king truth.

And now the continuation.

  1. Sadie tells Jake about Miz Ellie asking about him and she uses “don’t ask don’t tell”
  2. They are together again much to disperse of Miz Ellie and spend Christmas together
  3. They go to the new year dance and are the stars
  4. Just as the new year comes in Jake feels the JFK shooting
  5. Jake now has two lives one with Sadie and the watching Lee and Marina and that’s all he does watch even when an old woman tells him to call the cops 
  6. De Mohrenschildt come for the rest of Marina things and Lee is show up for the Coward he is
  7. A mouth later they are back together.
  8. Jake has a flyer from Lee about a protest for TV show on channel 9 the man talking will Edwin Walker who Lee will try and kill soon
  9. Now all Jake has to is watch and wait to make sure Lee is acting alone, but Marina is pregnant again which isn’t in Al notes

What I think – All Jake has to do is put a bullet in Lee just the same way he did Dunning he even says this at the end of the chapter, all this trying to find out if Lee is working alone is just evil watching Marina move back and forth. But that’s not really want the books about its Jake a man who never really fitted into the 21th century trying to apply those values onto the late 1950-1960 along the way falling in love. 

At the start of the book I felt sorry for Jake he was drawn into a dying man’s wish, which he had no control over, but now its Jake being a voyeuristic pain in the backside, doing nothing just passing judgement. Al said stop the killing of JFK, so just do that. Living in the 50/60 he been  changing little bit of history all the time, Dumming, the school play and even Sadie herslf  so why not just go for the big one He changing history whatever happens so one dark night shoot Lee and go back to Sadie. Simple, but no the world will get it own back so there will be no happy ending.

Well that’s about it for this week, as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for the next chapter in which I hope Jake does more that sit and watch
