I found this to be Stephen King's best book since at least before his accident
and probably his best in 20 years.

By page 45, he got around the two things that almost all time travel stories get caught up in. (the what if you kill your own grandfather problem, and also the poison penny problem of Somewhere in Time, though I do think that story was homage'd here among others).

And it was also a tender love story, something very different for Stephen.

He gives credit to his son for the ending. (bring some kleenex with you).

won't give away spoilers.

Good mix of politics (and don't think today's politics isn't thought of), suspense, time travel, etc.

And it also made me go and look up parts to see if some of those obscure names were real,
and they were.

(and unlike say O'Reilley's book on Lincoln which was non-fiction, this is a work of fiction and doesn't attempt to say otherwise).
