Provides an almost real feel including background noises that makes it seem like you are in the room
the sense of being there particularly with the pauses, ice tinkling in glasses, matches striking
Come listen to history
wonderful you do not need to know the players in order to enjoy Jackie Kennedy's version of events and people and most of all her Jack. She is not sentimental or maudlin or anything you would expect of a young widow, You will find yourself waiting for that little nugget of information or comment that lets you into their world. She says Jack was magic. She was magic too.
beautiful memories, I'm happy she shared them with the world. I appreciate that she took the time to do this at such a painfull time.
This was so great to hear these tapes in Jackie's voice. I am so great full to Caroline for releasing the tapes in my life time. If there are more I wish she would release them as well. I have always thought Jack, Jackie And Bobby were good people despite their enormous wealth and these tapes brought to light even more reasons to support my feelings. A must listen for people who were alive during this time.
Thank you, Caroline, for sharing this intimate and loving look into the heart of your incredibly amazing and courageous mom. In all the years I admired her, I never thought I would get to feel I was just sitting and listening to her just talk.. Thank you to you for sharing her with us...she, and you, amaze me still, as did Senator Ted Kennedy when I met him in 1977. Your family inspires and you have continued that legacy. Thank you Caroline.
I do plan to listen to this again. There were so many interesting topics that I would like to refresh on!
I loved listening to her opinions of the other "First Ladies", politicians, and events of her time! I am sure she wanted to wait 50 years for this to be released for good reason!
This book was a little hard to hear because it was recorded long ago, however once I grabbed my good set of ear buds it was so interesting to hear the clanking of the ice cubes in her glass and her inhaling as she smoked.It was such a different world 50 years ago, she speaks on what was expected of "The First Lady" and of wives and mothers.I will be recommending this and listening again!
I already have recommended it to friends. Being so close to the time of the assassination I was surprised she did it, and she doesn't talk about the assassination. She talks about the 10 years she was with Jack, and it's quite interesting.
This really isn't a story per se. Jackie seemed relaxed in the interviews, and I was surpirsed at her comments about the French and Charles DeGaulle. She couldn't stand either one.
The interviewer knew Jack and Jackie personally, and so he knew what to ask her. Hearing Jackie's voice is something that would be very lacking in a book.
Yes, and I almost did too.
Jackie shines a whole different light on the happenings in the White House, and it's well worth a listen.
Her conversation on what happened during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
I hadn't before.
A great listen for any Kennedy fan or history buff in general.
Yes, it was in Jacqueline's own voice
The preface would have been nice to hear? Why was it not there?
Yes. This was an extraordinary peek into the empire that was the Kennedys, in the eyes of a woman wielding much more power than she let on.
Jackie, of course. Her growth during those years of tragedy was palpable.
Hearing Jackie's voice was without parallel
