The book gave me what I wanted - a closer look at Mrs. Kennedy's personality. And the author is clearly a little (maybe more than a little) in love with her. But for me, the surprising takeaway is just how immature and inconsiderate she was, and how insensitive and casually cruel the Born Rich can be towards people whose lives are dedicated to their service. I've been reading Kennedy biographies, and the more I read, the less I respect the Kennedy First Couple.
I enjoy listening to Audible books on my way to work as a psychiatric nurse! I am a fan of non-fiction; political and artist from film/stage
I enjoyed this book tremendously! it gives a wonderful and respectful portrayal of Jacqueline Kennedy
Kennedy book review.
I have never been so glad to hear that the president was shot because that meant it was almost the end of this book. While the story was very good, the detail and repetition was overwhelming. Hill either kept copious notes, had an excellent memory or made up the details, but it was too much. And he beats it into the reader that Jackie wanted her privacy, that she enjoyed challenging the secret service, that he stepped up to the task every time, that John was a rambunctious boy, that Clint understood every movement and eye flicker that Jackie made. Ugh. It is obvious that he was in love with her. I enjoyed the basics of the story but am so glad this audio book is over.
Absolutely. The author, who had a front row seat, at some historical moments told a story from his unique vantage point.
Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy - an extraordinary individual and classy woman.
Same as the book title.
Tremendous respect for the men and women who serve in the Secret Service to protect our leaders.
This book covers the facts, some widely known and many unknown, of Mrs Kennedy's time as First Lady. The author has described everything so clearly you will tested as to weather you got this information and perception of Mrs Kennedy through a book or a documentary. THIS IS ONE OF HE BOOKS YOU WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER.
I was born in 1968 long after the Kennedys left the White House. Of course, I knew of the historical events that took place but this audio book gave me a completely personal prospective and incredible appreciation for the people that lived through it. Now I understand what all the fuss was about Jackie Kennedy..
Very interesting audiobook, the last chapter is read by Mr Hill himself, his voice is beautiful and full of profound emotions he is still feeling after all these years, Mr Hill himself is now part of the history of John and Jacqueline Kennedy. Marie (France)
