Publisher's Summary

A riveting historical narrative of the shocking events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the follow-up to mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln 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.

In January 1961, as the Cold War escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of Communism while he learns the hardships, solitude, and temptations of what it means to be president of the United States. Along the way he acquires a number of formidable enemies, among them Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and Alan Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition, powerful elements of organized crime have begun to talk about targeting the president and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy. In the midst of a 1963 campaign trip to Texas, Kennedy is gunned down by an erratic young drifter named Lee Harvey Oswald. The former Marine Corps sharpshooter escapes the scene, only to be caught and shot dead while in police custody. The events leading up to the most notorious crime of the 20th century are almost as shocking as the assassination itself. Killing Kennedy chronicles both the heroism and deceit of Camelot, bringing history to life in ways that will profoundly move the listener. This may well be the most talked about book of the year.

    "I remember - but I did not know..."

    This books gives the contex of many things going on before and after the day in Dallas. Moving to Dallas 5 years after the assination talk radio made a living on the each new therory or plot. Most made the authors money and not much more.

    It was good to see it all put back in to prespective. Some of that historyin Nov is still being felt today. So many of the details I had forgotten or had not put into that contex.

    "Much better than I was expecting"
    Any additional comments?

    Bill surprised me. I read an an interview with Bruce Willis and he said that enjoyed the book so on Bruce's recommendation I gave this a shot. This book does not go into any of the conspiracy theories or the other minutia that we have been subjected to for so long. Bill lays out the facts as he sees them in a very straight forward way. There is enough background that leads to that trip to Dallas that I felt like he really did not leave anything out. I was surprised to learn of his personal involvement in the aftermath of the event. Solid listen and he does a very nice job of narration.

    "Promising Leader cut down in prime"

    A real page turner. Killing Lincoln was more informative in my opinion but this was still insightful especially into the mind of Oswald. Not much new here for the conspiracy thoeriest, but intesting read all the same.

    Story
    "An Interesting Account of the Kennedy Years"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There was too much focus on Kennedy's sexual escapades... we get it, he was a sex addict.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I enjoyed the explanations of the various events of the Kennedy presidency, I was less impressed with the details of Kennedy's womanizing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Recounting the actual assasination and how the details unfolded.


    Do you think Killing Kennedy needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, this book covered the life of Kennedy in full.

    What made the experience of listening to Killing Kennedy the most enjoyable?

    Reliving history


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

    Having read Killing Lincoln first I was a bit disappointed with this book as it really didn't have much in it that I didn't remember from when he was killed.


    What about Bill O'Reilly’s performance did you like?

    When an author reads the book he can put the emphasis exactly where it was intended.
