    To everyone else, John F. Kennedy Jr. may have been American royalty, but to RoseMarie Terenzio, he was an entitled nuisance—and she wasn’t afraid to let him know it. RoseMarie was his personal assistant, his publicist, and one of his closest confidantes during the last five years of his life. In this, her first memoir, she bravely recounts her own fairy tale interrupted, describing the unlikely friendship between a blue-collar girl from the Bronx and John F. Kennedy Jr.

    Lissa says: "The inside story from a "No BS" gal"
    "Wonderful Read.....new perspective on JFK Jr."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely recommend. Easy read and couldn't stop listening. Gave such a refreshing perspective on JFK Jr.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fairy Tale Interrupted?

    Felt like you were actually in the office at "George".....and could almost see JFK at his desk.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were so many wonderful scenes.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not a particular scene but the realization of how much the "rich & famous", and also those who work with them, must give up. I was so moved that Rosie did not attend the wedding, because others from the office were not part of it.....That must have been so hard.


    Any additional comments?

    My only negative comments are around the quality of the recording. Narration was very good, but there was background noise early in the recording, and also duplicated phrases several times (chapter 8 I think.) This was not the usual excellent recording quality of Audible.
    Otherwise, loved it!

    When Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election, he also won a long-running debate with his wife, Michelle. Contrary to her fears, politics now seemed like a worthwhile, even noble pursuit. Together they planned a White House life that would be as normal and sane as possible. Then they moved in. Filled with riveting detail and insight into their partnership, emotions, and personalities, and written with a keen eye for the ironies of public life, The Obamas is an intimate portrait that will surprise even listeners who thought they knew the President and First Lady.

    Anthony says: "Great insight"

    Great flow. Lots of info but written in such a wonderful, easy way....Feel like you are in the White House with the Obamas. Couldn't put it down.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way you feel you are really getting to know Michelle as she transitions into her role as First Lady.


    Have you listened to any of Robin Miles’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time listening to Robin. She is an excellent narrator.

    Many great moments!

    In a career spanning more than 30 years, the late Patrick Swayze made a name for himself on the stage, the screen, and television. Known for his versatility, passion and fearlessness, he became one of our most beloved actors.
