A vivid recreation of the moments before, during, and after president John F. Kennedy's assassination, based on original audio from ABC interwoven with commentary from Diane Sawyer and fresh interviews with the reporters, secret service agents, and medical personnel who were there. It's harrowing to hear the first breathless reports of the shooting, as well as the somber accounts from Kennedy's funeral, and the little details bring the terrible events back to life. Although the sound quality here is reliably excellent, there's a certain amount of repetition in the material that perhaps makes it best suited to JFK obsessives or those looking for thorough teaching tools.
This edition of Three Shots Rang Out: The JFK Assassination 50 Years Later is an audio-only ABC News special created exclusively for Audible and hosted by ABC World News Anchor Diane Sawyer. Sawyer takes listeners back to Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, for a “you are there” exploration of the day of U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Key moments include:
These real time audio reports, eyewitness recollections from 1963, and new analysis make for a powerful experience of this fateful day in recent history.

Just like you, I spend my money here and am not on any author's payroll :)
An excellent synopsis of the Kennedy assasination and its aftermath short-term. I had not heard the ABC News broadcasts of the era (mostly CBS, Walter Cronkite, etc.), but the excerpts from ABC are exceptional.
I was particularly moved near the end as JFK was laid to rest in Arlington - the Cardinal, National Anthem, and 21-gun salute made tears well up in my eyes - 50 years later....
Well done and must listen!
Audible obsessed lifelong learner.
A brief ABC news special on the day Kennedy died and the promise he represented was silenced. The news bites and interviews bring the tragic day to life 50 years later.
This audiobook comes to us free from Audible,com and ABC News and Diane Sawyer. My thanks go out to both organizations.
This two hour audiobook is a return to November 1963 where the Kennedy Assassination, Oswald arrest and subsequent murder, and the presidential funeral are retold using ABC radio accounts of the day.
This book is non-political so members of both the right and the left can equally enjoy this work

P.S. I cant believe its been 50 years. Im getting old
Completely moved by the narration of this great American loss. This narration moved me so much. Wish this could be undone. Losing great leaders is such a blow for country, people who love and specially for family. This goes as dark part in the history. No one want to remember.
Peace is what we all needed and we need to make better future and world.
The way narration was so good that it included the emotion. Reading will not add so much on emotion
Conclusion was good as it was a part of view given
