Yes, I enjoyed it very much.
My favorite character was Joseph P Kennedy. He was full of life and wasn't afraid to speak his mind. A strong presence that commanded respect. Infatuated with his family, but especially his children.
The end of the book was particularly sad. Such a spectacular human being ending up in such a physical condition. Having to endure the death of his two boys entombed in his own body, unable to express the rage he must have felt. It almost seemed as if he was paying for some unimaginable sin. What he cared for the most was stripped away at the weakest period in his life.
