I really enjoyed this #LiteraryCrew #buddyread. My only discontent stemmed from the resolution — it was clever to the point of almost being overly clever — 🤷‍♀️
Even so I‘d like it if she decided to do another book in this series. Can‘t wait for discussion time! #CJW

Librarybelle Yay! I hope to have a discussion post(s) up on Friday! 4w

Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot | Bill O'Reilly, Martin Dugard
post image
Pickpick

This president had a lot of dodgy connections and was a total philanderer ... I‘ve never been a believer in Camelot nor a Kennedy admirer, but I‘ve always been fascinated by how he was so exposed to the possibility of assignation in Dallas that day. His security personnel made many disastrous decisions. On a lighter note Kennedy reportedly could read 1200 words per minute! #Audiobook #History #CJW

ljuliel I think everyone has good and bad qualities. He was no different than anyone else. Some people are really great in certain areas and pretty lousy in others. Sadly, he grew up in a house learning philandering from his father. That doesn‘t make it ok, it just explains why he was like that. All the sons liked the women , married or not. 1mo
CoverToCoverGirl @ljuliel no offence intended... I‘ve just always thought that the Kennedy family‘s image has always been overly glamorized.. my mother still tells the story about dropping my infant sister when she heard the news of his assassination. 1mo
ljuliel Having been alive during that time, although I was a kid, it really did affect people in a pretty profound way. He seemed to be a likable guy, very smart, excellent speaker, young, handsome , and gave so many people hope , which our country needed at the time. When they speak of Camelot, that was the closest we had to a royal family, I guess. Indiscretions weren‘t blasted all over the news like they are now. He would have a rougher time today. 1mo

CoverToCoverGirl @ljuliel yess he certainly would. You should read this book, if you have an interest.... it is well presented but it is direct and to the point and certainly kept my attention. 1mo
ljuliel Yes I should. I thought it and the Lincoln one both sounded interesting. Thanks. 😊 1mo
CoverToCoverGirl @ljuliel Killing Lincoln was the very best of the three I‘ve listened to in this series of books. 1mo

A very worthy listen - told from the female perspective. Men make war and the women and children of the conquered suffer the consequences - brutal slavery and/or brutal death. This is very intense and disturbing, but well done. #Audiobook #Audible

What a top notch read! Of special note pages 158 - 159 - are the most terrifying and horrifying page‘s I‘ve ever read. I could barely process the words! Which were made even more powerful because this whole narrative is based on true events! This book will leave you gutted by how the judicial system really works but that ending - was perfect! 5🌟

Some facts I knew but some I didn‘t. A lot happening in this one but a real pleasure to listen to. Very well presented! So many larger than life historical figures, and a ton of interesting facts to fact check! It took me threes times longer to listen because of all the googling I did!

A fascinating complicated man of intense faith. This #biography was a page turner so to speak... I couldn‘t stop listening. A narrative rich in civil war detail. Highly recommend. 5🌟

Crazeedi I love biographies, I remember reading one in school about him, but of course geared to a younger age group, I'll have to look for this 1mo
CoverToCoverGirl @Crazeedi This is easily going to be in my top 5 reads this year.. maybe even # 1 . ....but the year is early yet. 1mo

Oh what a tangled web of conspiracy and happenstances. I did not know nearly as much about this history changing event as I thought - had me fact checking on numerous occasions. I highly recommend - had me hooked from beginning to end. Lincoln was a truly remarkable man!

There are books you want to love but this book was a struggle to listen to from the very start. I tried to power through it but I‘ve now reached part 3 and can go no farther. I just cannot connect to the characters, they just quite honestly fell flat for me as they seemed underdeveloped. I devoured The Underground Railway and I‘m sadly disappointed that I didn‘t enjoy this book with the same enthusiasm.

I always knew that the assassination of the Archduke was the catalyst that began the Great War but getting the backstory of these two star crossed lovers was enlightening but bittersweet because of knowing how it all ended. A great read to end my year with!
