Yes. I enjoyed both Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln
President Kennedy, I enjoyed the details of his early life and the story of his rise to power
Yes. Mr. O' Reilly does add to the story
It was worth the time and I enjoyed it
Would have liked to hear more regarding Kennedy's earlier life prior to PT109 as well as the supporting cast of characters such as LBJ, Dr King, the First Lady and the Secret. Service Agents.
My only other issue is that after the asassination, the book basically just stopped. No real details after that point
Almost any book on JFK is interesting, this title is no exception as a re-hash of the largely unaccepted but official explanation of Kennedy’s assassination. You could almost be forgiven for thinking that the book must have been commissioned by some branch of the US government.
JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters by James William Douglass is a much more interesting and plausible look at the JFK death and cover-up.
Bill O'Reilly , Martin Dugard might do well to consider taking on a real project; that of explaining to their loyal readers why the research that Douglass claims to have done cannot possibly be verified.
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.
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!
Audible obsessed lifelong learner.
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.
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.
Having read Killing Lincoln first I was a bit disappointed with this book as it really didn't have much in it that I didn't remember from when he was killed.
When an author reads the book he can put the emphasis exactly where it was intended.
