    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Would you listen to Killing Kennedy again? Why?

    No, I graduated from high school in 1962 so I remember the Kennedy event first hand. There have been so many accounts of conspiracy that I was ready to hear something new; however, that was not the case. It was the same version that I had read in the newspapers.


    What other book might you compare Killing Kennedy to and why?

    n/a


    Have you listened to any of Bill O'Reilly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Killing Lincoln was great and would listen to it again.


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

    The whole book was great.

  • The Casual Vacancy

    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Perhaps, I;ll try it again at a later date and enjoy it better.


    What was most disappointing about J. K. Rowling’s story?

    Too many characters and it was difficult to understand the speaker.


    What does Tom Hollander bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't have time to read any books so I love the audio versions.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Casual Vacancy?

    don't know


    Any additional comments?

    I guess I was expecting a lot more from J.K. Rollins. I was disappointed
