I have read many biographies and stories about American presidents as well as those of leaders of other countries. Each author brings a different story to the table and this one is no different. Yes, he was President Kennedy; he was part of the legacy, he had affairs that included Marilyn Monroe. Many of the facts I already knew but O'Reilly brought out Kennedy's presidential side, including his ability to assess a situation and how he evolved into a decision maker to be respected. Jackie was a fabulous First Lady whose video tour of the White House I would love to find. Today, we are a cup-half-empty society that needs someone to blame, but we still love Camelot, with all its warts, because the Kennedy family dignity and charm overcame their shortcomings. It's worth the read.
The book is good but it is not a story for fun. For those of you who did not live those times it gives you good information about what took place and who was involved. The book is good but it is not a story for fun. Those of us that lived through that time will like the information that is provided in the telling of the story in historical perspective. To rank this book it can only be compared to Killing Lincoln which which was an excellent book. Mr. O'Reilly tells the story as only a teacher can.
All the historical information provided as well as Mr. O'Reilly's interpretation of the events.
As the narrator Mr. O’Reilly was great
The Mystery solved.
For those of you who don't know or did not live those events this book is a must read or listen
Audible has allowed me to enjoy books again.
More details into the conspiracy of Kennedy
Story itself is the interesting part. Least interesting is OReilly reviewing the history. I was looking for more details of the conspiracy
He did a good job
Conspiracy theory additions
One of the best books I have listened to. Find myself eager for the next chapter.
Kennedy, because of his spot in our history
The authors walk you through that turbulent time that the Kennedy's were in power. I was amazed how it seemed like everything lead to that fateful day in Dallas. Amazing book about an amazing time in our history.
It reads like a novel. I learned things about the JFK assassination I'd never learned.
JFK. Incredibly complex and great man. A conservative Democrat.
Both Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy were equally excellent.
I was emotionally captured by Killing Kennedy.
While Bill O'Reilly is widely known as a stellar TV/Radio, news and opinion personality, host of the popular O'Reilly Factor, I believe as time passes his contributions as an author will surpass his other accomplishments.
This is by far the best audiobook that I've ever listened to. The story was significantly enhanced by the story telling of Bill O'Reilly.
yes, However I feel O'Reilly delivery was bothersome voice is too famous.
Honesty-of behind the scenes.
N/A it all sounded the same
No need.. Kennedy was man not a god. that era of men and how they treated women was not to be admired. He was not a great husband. like I said a different era.
I do admire the fact that Jackie & JFK raised two wonderful grounded kids.
I was really surpprised by L B Johnson role as VP and the disrepect for the office.
As we all know, Bill O'Reilly is a no-nonsense type of guy. As a journalist and author we have come to expect both facts and integrity in this same fashion and that's exactly what you get with another of Mr. O'Reilly's historic endeavors.
I so love the way the information was provided and pieced together methodically while preserving the integrity of the historic events and in John Fitzgerald Kennedy's short three years in office, many historic events occurred. My personal memories of those events were foggy and muddled, at best, but all was brought to light in Mr. O'Reilly's own voice that captivates soundly. I appreciated hearing the tone and expressions of the author himself. Nothing is left to the imagination.
There's no mushiness here. Personalities and relationships are unveiled, some surprisingly so. Misconceptions and fabled rumors are brought to light and either debunked, proven, or factually left in limbo.
If you read or listened to Killing Lincoln then you won't be surprised that this is another fascinating product by this fascinating author!!
Killing Lincoln. Same captivating story telling of factual events.
Love to hear Mr. O'Reilly's expressiveness and tone of voice. You can sense the emotions, both up-lifting and despondently sober, that he wishes to share with the listener.
Say something about yourself!
In fairness, I should say that I compared this book to Killing Lincoln. Personally, I thought Killing Lincoln was great! Killing Kennedy was not as good but it was definitely worth the time. Well done Bill O’Reilly.
