    Story
    (177)

    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"
    "Well researched and written book, poorly narrated"

    Story
    Would you listen to Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero again? Why?

    I'm not sure as the narration by Holter Graham was so poor as to be distracting. As someone who was a young adult when Jack Kennedy was President, I found Mr. Graham's attempts to react JFK's accent surprisingly off the mark. (Unlike Craig Wasson's rendition of JFK in 11.22.63 which was uncannily accurate!) Names of important people of the time were also improperly pronounced which is inexcusable for a narrator..


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mathews did his homework and gave the listener an in-depth sense of who JFK was--his strengths and weaknesses and made it very interesting. JFK came more to life as a deeply troubled and gifted man--more than anything I had ever read before.
