I put Killing Kennedy up there with Killing Lincoln loved both books, Both of these books grab your attention and you just do not want to put it down and I didn't.
The way this book is laid out that it was really cool to get the interaction between, Jack, Jackie, Bobby, LBJ and the others. The actual point where JFK is shot in Dallas was a dramatic point.
Bill O'Reilly's performance is remarkable and makes the book that much more enjoyable.
I was broken hearted that JFK was shot and that because the FBI screwed up we lost the President of the United States, It was a very sad day for America. It really broke my heart.
Just wish Bill had spent a little more time at the end going over JFK's buriel at Arlington National Cemetery. Just something to think about. for the paper back edition of the book.
It ranks on the top
Killing Lincoln, -same great writing, great performance
His voice inflections add to the emotional impact
The Unmeasureable Loss of JFK
Great Book, move over liberal media, you lose again
Obviously Kennedy's death is the main point of the book, but the connection with Kennedy's past is so interesting.
This book basically ignores all talks of any conspiracy, and takes the Warren Commission at face value. While I would have liked him to talk more about the conspiracies, the book did motivate me to learn more, which is great.
Yes, it was a great book and was narrated well.
There were a couple instances where O'Reilly referred to the president as Lincoln instead of Kennedy.
I would definitely recommend this title. After watching an entire week of documentaries and coverage of the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death, I still found this book very interesting, and it succeeded in giving me even more information I didn't know. This was a great follow-up to Killing Lincoln, and O'Reilly is wonderful at telling a story without pushing agendas or bias. He has a gift for producing fact-based writing while still making it interesting.
Bill O. writes an amazing historical book on an amazing period of American history. I am a Factor fan and am used to Bill's voice on his show. It took a little time to adjust to him reading this. But it is so interesting I forgot it was him and got into the story.
In the middle. I prefer fiction.
Depiction of how Kennedy's body brace affected his assassination. Like a perfect storm
It did make me sad, and upset in general. The topic itself isn't a feel-good thing, but I adored this President and was only 17 when he died. I cried in a department store bathroom at the time.
Read all of O'Reilly's "Killing" series. This is the best of them, in my humble opinion.
Yes, to make sure what I learned sticks and to hear O'Rielly say nice things about a democrat.
Bill O'Rielly, Jackie and even JFK. I'm 25, I didn't really know much about any of them. Jackie is enchanting, her character is so perfect it seems like she's made up. As O'Rielly tells it JFK goes from cheating husband and cowardly president to a wonderful father, husband and strong leader.
85% of communication is nonverbal. His tone, the inflections in his voice add to the mystique of the Kenndys. I could hear the admiration in his voice for JFK and Jackie. When JFK failed O'Rielly was matter-of-fact but when JFK succeeded, again, O'Rielly's admiration shown through.
All the fun of Bill O'Rielly without most of his opinions.
Bill O'Reilly cuts through all the nonsense and gives the straight story behind the Kennedy assassination. Well researched and fascinating. Great book.
As someone who doesn't watch Bill O'Reilly shouting on television, I was glad he narrated the book in a 'normal' voice. He and Dugard compiled an amazing amount of detail about the Kennedys, Oswald, and other key characters in this tragic event, and they go out of their way to lay the groundwork leading up to November 22, 1963. My disappointment was that they left me wanting more. They essentially ended the story as soon as Air Force One left Dallas. The authors omitted inside information about planning JFK's funeral, the interaction between LBJ and Jackie, or other happenings immediately after the assassination.
