The first half of this audiobook was top notch - the author's step by step, minute by minute walk through the Kennedy Assassination was excellent. I've read many books on the assassination, but this is the first time I've heard the lead-up, the event, and the aftermath presented in this format - I found it very engaging and learned how to connect many of the dots I've read about. I may listen to this portion again in the future.
The author's rantings about the various conspiracy theories was interesting at times, but got tiring quickly. I generally agree with everything he said, but it felt like I was reading a personalized hate letter to 15 or so conspiracy writers - you disagree and the facts are on your side, WE GET IT. I lost interest in this section quickly.
Recommended - at least for the first portion.
I'm a middle of the road Stephen King fan, an occasional science fiction fan, and a big history buff who has always been fascinated by the Kennedy Assassination - this audiobook was an AMAZING combination of these interests. I know it's a cliche, but I honestly could barely drag myself out of the car when I got to work every morning... and I honest to goodness pulled into a parking lot and listened for another 20 minutes on my way home one night. This is one of those books that makes your brain churn when you go to bed at night - thinking through the implications of changing a small step in history and how it would impact the future.
I haven't enjoyed a book so much in YEARS. I loved every second of it.
