Much like his Killing Lincoln book, Bill O'Reilly reports the facts and interesting details on not only the assassination, but also a look at the JFK era. An interesting read and factual type perspective filled with with concise detail for those who have followed the Kennedy saga.
On my list of all time favorites
How the authors stayed with the facts and giving great context to people and places without editorial. I also appreciated that they explored some of the more curious facts and details that are still being debated while taking care to debunk conspiratorial sensationalism.
He does the same great job as he has in all of his books.
I did, but it was a great book for listening on two of my weekend getaways.
I did not learn as much from Killing Kennedy as I did from Killing Lincoln, but I have read several other Kennedy books, and for those who have not read Killing Lincoln .... it is a must read/listen.
No, I graduated from high school in 1962 so I remember the Kennedy event first hand. There have been so many accounts of conspiracy that I was ready to hear something new; however, that was not the case. It was the same version that I had read in the newspapers.
Yes. Killing Lincoln was great and would listen to it again.
The whole book was great.
I love the storry and found many interesting fact I never knew. Just when you think you know everything about Kennedy... You don't!
I enjoyed the writing and narration very much. It was a view of both the public and private life of Kennedy, as well as many of the other historical figures of the time leading up to the assassination. I found the sexcapades of both Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. to be more disappointing than I had originally thought. I knew that their infidelities took place but not to the addictive extent that the book describes. Flawed heroes caught up in in an incredible time in history.
this ranks at the top of all the books I have read.
He speaks clearly and keep ones attention to the very end.
Having lived through this era I found this a very informative and entertaining as well. It does cast a new light on the event without delving into conspiracies and all the other theories that seem to come up every so often.
I enjoyed the book, but I was not blown away by it. It is a good story of Kennedy's presidency, and I learned a lot. It is not one I would listen to again. It was not as good as Killing Lincoln.
I always listen to AUDIOBOOKS,who has time to sit still and read? I shared the first half with my husband while driving around the beautiful Keweenaw Penninsula of the UP of MI. We were enjoying the beautiful leaves and woods and learning all at the same time. We listened to the second half around a campfire in Northern Wisconsin watching meteor showers. I know most of you will not have a chance at that kind of experience but it is still a great listen even in the city or in an apartment somewhere where no one knows what a meteor is. Check it out
There are no favorites, no heros in this story.
yes but 2 sittings worked out great
The timeline was easy to follow.
Yes. It was very much like "Killing Lincoln". It was like listening to an historical novel.
I have read many previious accounts of Keenedy's life and assassination and I was suprised to learn a number of new facts.
Bill O'Reilly has done an excellent job on this book and does a very good job with the narration.
