Book Review: 11/22/63

Genre: Sci-Fi, Historical Fantasy Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

Whenever I’m in the mood to read a long book, it’s always a struggle to find the right one. When you’re reading 500+ pages, you want to be sure that you’re not wasting your time. While Stephen King novels are a hit or a miss for me, I thoroughly enjoyed 11/22/63!

In my opinion, you have to be a talented author to write a book over 800 pages and not lose your readers. I was certainly invested throughout the entirety of 11/22/63. The story was slow, but didn’t necessarily feel like it was dragging. I also think longer books can be advantageous because there is more room to develop characters.

I would not recommend reading 11/22/63 if you are in a reading slump, but it is the perfect book to read over time. It’s nice to read a little every day because I felt more invested in the story.

Additionally, this book had elements that appeal to many different readers. The time travel aspect is ideal for Sci-Fi lovers, while the time period is perfect for readers who prefer historical fiction.

Overall, a pretty good read!

  1. I hope that this book will not contribute to the rhetoric of the conspiracy believers. The Illuminatus Trilogy also started out as a historical fiction. Some people have lost the ability to discern the difference between historical fiction and historical facts.

    1. It was published about 10 years ago, but I’m sure it has contributed to some of the conspiracy theories. I certainly agree with you that some people take historical fiction literally, which can led to ignoring the truth about history. It’s definitely a slippery slope!
