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.
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.
I like audio better.
Killing Lincoln - I liked Lincoln better. I think it is because I lived through Kennedy and knew the story more personally. I really felt the Lincoln book. I learned a lot.
Yes I listened to Kennedy and Lincoln right through.
I liked Kennedy and anyone reading the facts for the first time will be fascinated. The characters came alive and were very real.
The detail in facts and the way the story is presented it is like a really good fiction novel but its 100% true. It's very very well done. I highly recommend it.
Its captivating. It pulls you in from the beginning and you keep wanting more.
This is a well-written story. It provided a balanced view of Kennedy's personal and political life up to the day of his death. I enjoyed hearing the details around the PT 109 incident as well as the concise, in-depth and engaging profiles of the people around him including Jackie Kennedy, LBJ, Lee Harvey Oswald and many others who played an important role in JFK's presidency (and his eventual assassination).
O'Reilly's narration flows along at a nice pace and in no time you'll find that the book is finished. I recommend this book.
Bill O'Reilly's voice and detail made it so easy to visualize the events as being read
The realization of the events
Not being alive when Kennedy was in office, and loving history, this is the first thing I've read/listen to that actual helped put a timeline to the historical events of the Kennedy's assassination!
