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.

PLOT: fast and short story about the life of Russian Pair Skaters.
This book is not very long. it is told through the eyes of Ekatrina Gordiava from the early training and when she meets and skates with Sergei. The background of the old Russian System and the changes to the new. Eventually they marry and have a child. Win 2 gold medals at the Olympics. This is a good story for those who love skating and this sweet couple. I give this 3 STARS. the audio sounds like it was recorded in someone's garage and on a home recorder....and a Russian woman narrates. This is good but you have to pay attention because she drops words out of sentences. The Story is 4 stars but the rather poor audio quality and the distracting Russian narrator is less enjoyable than it could have been.
