When reading genre novels, often my favorite parts are the parts before the bad things start happening.

That’s particularly true for Stephen King. I want the Torrances to have a nice winter at the Overlook Hotel.

It’s true most of all for one of my favorite of his novels, “11/23/63.” I loved the story of a rootless man from 2010 Maine who finds community and love in 1960 Texas. I was far less interested in the hunt to stop Lee Harvey Oswald.
