This author gives us more than information about Kennedy -- it is a history lesson about current events. The book is a enjoyable "history" book.
I love learning all this information.
Kennedy- he is waht the book was about
Great inflection and tone
The book moved fast yet it explained the characters well. It was interesting to go beyond the legends and learn the human side of the characters.
Surprisingly it was Jackie. I found her fascinating. Never heard these details of her personality before.
I thought his "matter of fact" tone of voice added to the historical story.
Could never listen to a book in one sitting.
Would recommend this book to anyone, but especially to the "Baby Boomers" who were too young to remember the details of the 60's or who need reminded.
I loved the orderly written time line.
I watch Bill O'Reilly and love his voice.
I love history and this title capitivated me.
Retired Engineer; living in Bend, OR . I enjoy listening to Audible books while I hike and bike in the great trails here.
If I had no more unread books, I would re-read Kennedy only after re-reading Lincoln.
The detailed sequence of the mirroring the actual events was extrodinary.
The scene most memorable was the lead up to the assassination and the actual event itself.
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.
