"A world of disproportion engulfs us, and we live in a universe that is absurd."

Not to get all book-snobby here, but I really never thought I’d read something by Stephen King. Given his wide audience I knew his books were accessible, but I never found myself interested in reading one. So I’d never actually cracked the spine on one until I read (on the Kobo, so no actual spine-cracking, I guess) 11/22/63 (kobo | amazon). I have a slight fascination with JFK’s assassination, not to mention the literary toolkit of time travel, so I bought it.

It wasn’t bad, really. Light, certainly, but it kept me entertained. I guess this is what people mean when they describe “summer books”. So on that basis, I guess I’d recommend it.

By the way, if you’ve read other Stephen King novels, then this connection flowchart may be of use:
