Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling authors of Mrs. Kennedy and Me share the stories behind the five infamous, tragic days surrounding JFK’s assassination, published in remembrance of the beloved president on the 50th anniversary of his death.

Clint Hill will forever be remembered as the lone secret service agent who jumped onto the car after President Kennedy was shot, clinging to its sides as it sped toward the hospital. Even now, decades after JFK’s presidency, the public continues to be fascinated with the Kennedys - America’s royal family. To mark the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Hill recounts his indelible memories of those five days leading up to, and after, that tragic day in November 1963. Hill, as Jackie’s guard, experienced those days firsthand. Hill provides a moment-to-moment narration evoking the feelings and emotions behind the images - clearing up the persistent conspiracy misconceptions along the way.

Told movingly by a man who still wishes he could undo it all, Five Days in November is a rare and deeply personal look at the assassination that affected the entire world and changed the United States forever.

unique

Any additional comments?

i have read many many books about kennedy and the assassination. This is unique in that it is a first hand account, so even for people who know a lot about it, i would highly recommend. Given length, obviously not a comprehensive history, but really worthwhile.

Best Book With Truthful Storytelling

Loved listening to this book from the first chapter to the last. Very visual descriptions with incredible details about the minute by minute sad moments in JFK's assassination history. Clint is an unsung hero.

Fairly good but a little dull

Would you try another book written by Clint Hill and Lisa McCubbin or narrated by Jeremy Bobb?

Yes, I have downloaded Clint Hill's book "Mrs Kennedy and Me" which was great

Who was your favorite character and why?

Clint Hill , because he's one of the few remaining witnesses to the assassination and he was as close as it's possible to get!

How could the performance have been better?

I think the narration was lacking. It was a little dull and monotonous

Could you see Five Days in November being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No, it would not work unless treated with a really new angle on the Assassination of Kennedy. Something which would compete with Oliver Stone's "JFK" movie.

Any additional comments?

This is one of thousands go books on Kennedy's murder and I quite enjoyed it because of the author's proximity to the president, but maybe it needed a different narrator? I've certainly heard far worse and it wouldn't stop me re-playing it.
