    (182)

    In Chris Matthews’ extraordinary biography, we see this most beloved president in the company of friends. We see and feel him close-up, having fun and giving off that restlessness of his. We watch him navigate his life from privileged, rebellious youth to gutsy American president. We witness his bravery in war and selfless rescue of his PT boat crew. We watch JFK as a young politician learning to play hardball and watch him grow into the leader who averts a nuclear war.

    Dolf says: "Superb Research & Writing / Mediocre Narration"
    "The Jack Kennedy few ever knew - until now"

    Story
    Where does Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Despite over a thousand attempts, Matthews brings back Jack Kennedy's short life in stunning detail and with overwhelming empathetic appeal.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I urge you to research Lem Billings - always there for Jack - the most mysterious man in Jack's past..


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    Graham took on and succeeded in bringing to life countless figures in John Kennedy's life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Most motivating was Kennedy's ability to mask tortuously crippling pain for the benefit of a far greater good.


    Any additional comments?

    Despite the ever present trauma of death befelt by Kennedys, the solace of healing humor was never far away.
