I am 25, never understood why it was such an emotional subject for people to talk about. This book took me into the life of the Kennedys and I felt as if I was sharing the memories with them. It made the assissination all that more impactful even though it's history and I was expecting it. Excellent book. Outstanding job all around.
Mr. Bill: Just finished reading Killing Kennedy, and was unable to stop, it was so interesting. I learned a lot. Thank you.

O'Reilly is an excellent orator. I am already starting his other books in the "killing" series. love them!
Absolutely! It's packed full of historical facts. Some were fairly well known, while others were quite surprising. The story, while focused on Kennedy, also has a wealth of information about Jackie. She was an icon in her own right.
The story brought this amazing couple to life. His infidelities, her unwavering love, his growth into a strong president, her grief when he was murdered only inches away. We all know the ending but I couldn't help hoping that somehow, there was a better outcome. They became real people.
No monotone here. You forgot he was reading a book. Instead it came across like he was telling us a story.
I cried listening to Jackie talking to her now- deceased huband. And imagining the sorrow that Caroline and John felt. Such a tragedy.
A Stark Contrast from Oliver Stone's JFK, where Stone believes the killing of a beloved president was wholly conspiratorial, and may have well been. I don't know, but I fully enjoyed O'Reilly's version of events too. I loved all the meticulous details about JFK, RFK, Jackie, LBJ, and so, many, many others. What stood out nearly as much as JFK and Camelot, was the details about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, which begs, I hope, a forth coming work, titled, Killing MLK. This is an absolute must!
