    What an excellent book! An outstanding work by an outstanding author. I love when he proves that he's capable of writing engaging fiction when he steps outside of horror writing. A very interesting concept, and ponders the question - will stopping one terrible event enable even more terrible events to occur. And on top of this, there's a love story that doesn't come off as too sentimental. Stephen King has a wondrous ability to write characters, and that ability is in full force here. It also had a heartfelt ending, and left me teary eyed. I highly recommend this book.

  • An interesting "what if"

    This was my first Stephen King novel and I certainly was impressed. Not only did the author explore the notion of time travel and how it alters the future, he also created a complex protagonist and explored his emotional and moral changes .
