I was a 13 year-old junior high school student in Washington DC when an announcement came over the intercom that President Kennedy was dead. We were sent home early. The great thing about growing up in the 60s and 70s is that there were only 3 national television channels and 1 local - all went off the air at midnight. We weren't inudated by 999 channels running the same 15 second home video loop over and over again like it's done today, augmented by a kazillion iPhone videos online.
This is not an audiobook. All it is in "CNN In A Can" - a bunch of clips and recordings pasted together with Diane Sawyer as "narrator". WHY?! If we are old enough to remember what we were doing when JFK was killed, we don't want to relive the trauma of what was our first major televised tragedy. If you weren't born at that time and if the horrific story of a husband having his head blown off into his wife's lap is of interest to you, I'm sure there are a half dozen documentary films about the assassination available on Netflix.
I'm glad I got this "book" free because I'd be requesting a refund. This is absolutely horrible!
