The voices and descriptions clearly bring the characters to life
Just entranced with the story
This books gives the contex of many things going on before and after the day in Dallas. Moving to Dallas 5 years after the assination talk radio made a living on the each new therory or plot. Most made the authors money and not much more.
It was good to see it all put back in to prespective. Some of that historyin Nov is still being felt today. So many of the details I had forgotten or had not put into that contex.
Brings back memories for my generation and teaches younger people about Civil Rights Movement, Cuban Missile Crisis and so much more.
Killing Lincoln is even better.
He is an excellent reader.
Those who do not learn from History are doomed to repeat it.
Bill surprised me. I read an an interview with Bruce Willis and he said that enjoyed the book so on Bruce's recommendation I gave this a shot. This book does not go into any of the conspiracy theories or the other minutia that we have been subjected to for so long. Bill lays out the facts as he sees them in a very straight forward way. There is enough background that leads to that trip to Dallas that I felt like he really did not leave anything out. I was surprised to learn of his personal involvement in the aftermath of the event. Solid listen and he does a very nice job of narration.
Found his love of family wonderful. Good research by authors. Narration good in continuing each happening. Remember that day and the events leading up to it.
Very sad ending for almost all of the family.
Living through the 60s, this book reminds us of our naïveté and the painful coming of age of our nation...how our world has changed in fifty years!
Tell us about yourself!
A real page turner. Killing Lincoln was more informative in my opinion but this was still insightful especially into the mind of Oswald. Not much new here for the conspiracy thoeriest, but intesting read all the same.
Right at the top! It was a well researched, well written book.
The way it was told chronologically, and from the perspectives of many different characters.
Of course when poor Jackie Kennedy is holding John in her lap after he had been shot. It was very sad.
I'm not a strong reader, audio editions are always better than print.
Hearing about the assassination from a close up and personal point of view really hit me.
There was too much focus on Kennedy's sexual escapades... we get it, he was a sex addict.
I enjoyed the explanations of the various events of the Kennedy presidency, I was less impressed with the details of Kennedy's womanizing.
Recounting the actual assasination and how the details unfolded.
No, this book covered the life of Kennedy in full.
