Bill O'Reilly makes history very interesting! wish I had had a history teacher that interesting in school! Can't wait for his next history lesson!
The period of the killing and the moments following.
Her response at the time of the killing.
Tell us about yourself!
Great book. So much of what happened during this time was never shared with me. I did not grow up during this time frame but I had a pedestal view of JFK and MLK. I was amazed with the behind the scenes of the President and his successes and failures. This was a great read. Bill O'Reilly is such a great narrator! I also listened to Killing Lincoln, however, Killing Kennedy was closer to my generation. I can wait for the next book that comes out.
The way it was presented. How it went into the background of all the main players in the story.
JFK because he was put in whole different light than I remember him. I was only 21 at the time and thought he was the greatest president in the world at the time. I still see many good things about him but see him in a whole different light now.
The Killing Of JFK as never before told
I think this is a must read for all. It is full of history that most of us probably do not know. We will never know if this was a lone gunman or part of a conspiracy

After "Killing Lincoln" the followup of "Killing Kennedy" (the end of Camelot) was just as engrossing. Even people who did not live through this time in American history (I did) will find this book not only complete but festinating and addictive.
The examination of all the other people & events that were influencing JFK's actions.
The back & forth events of the Cuban missile crisis
Bill O'Reilly is a great narrator.
This is tied with "Unbroken" as my favorite audio book of all time. I thoroughly enjoy books based on fact and great research. O'Reilly does a great job of telling this story while filling in many gaps I had in my knowledge of that horrible day in November 1963. I was in 5th grade when the announcement came over the school's intercom that "President Kennedy has died at 1 PM Central Standard Time".O'Reilly also goes into great detail with explaining what happened during the "Bay of Pigs" invasion as well as the Cuban Missile Crisis. Also, I never knew exactly what Oswald did to escape from that book depository. He almost got away.
I would compare this book to another O'Reilly great called "Killing Lincoln".
The minutes preceding the point where Oswald actually pulls the trigger is the best. Although we all know what happens (that Kennedy is assassinated), the way O'Reilly leads up to that moment is filled with anxiety. I found myself hoping that Oswald missed his mark.
The part where Mrs. Kennedy is holding her dead husband's head in her lap and she would not let go even after they arrived at the hospital. The doctor's were pleading with her to let them start trying to save his life.
This starts with some review of Kennedy in the Pacific. and moves to the Kennedy Legacy including the shady Joseph Kennedy and his legacy to his sons. They HAD to suceed. John Kennedy is a handsome well educated man with an drive for SEX and politics in that order. His claim he gets "headaches" if he does not have SEX every day is pretty much repeated throughout the audio. The Private life of Kennedy and Jackie is told in very good detail including the affairs and down and uptimes in the White House. It covers the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missle Crisis. What makes this different and gives US the BEST look at the shooter~~~ Lee Harvey Oswald. His life including time in Russia and communist leanings. As the enchanted look into absolute power of Kennedy and he shining appearance of President who at best was very ill and hid it. The secret service has the excuse covering up in every way for Kennedy is in this book is mostly financial. This moves along very fast because Bill OReilly is a fast talker and reader. This book never drags at all. The details are clear and lead to the final fate of the death of Kennedy and the events leading up and beyond that day in Dallas. I GIVE THIS 5 STAR FOR STORY ~ READER AND OVER ALL excellent details of new info on Oswald we have no read or heard of before. VERY good audiobook.
No, their right wing agenda blind them to the truth..
No just Bill O'Reilly's
Ignored the fact that the back of Kennedy's head was blown off. Not even a mention of the possibility of anyone except Oswald.
I had hoped for an even handed evaluation of the material, thus disappointment.
"Some people say" Bill O'Reilly is in the pocket of the Industrial Military Complex, the people who nearly bankrupted USA with their Wars & Policy's, & it started with the murder of Kennedy.
