review 1: I absolutely loved this book. I cannot express enough how much emotion it invoked from me. I kept wondering "What if" throughout the book trying to figure out how our country would be different if JFK had lived. I cried quite a bit too, especially thinking about Jackie Kennedy and her children after the loss of her husband. Although I was not born yet when JFK was president, I wish I could go back in time and experience the "Camelot" years. The use of images and pictures throughout the book only enhance the impact of JFK's death and the 1950s and 1960s. I recommend this book to everyone.
review 2:  This adaptation of O'Reilly's "Killing Kennedy" is meant for young people and as such it covers the events leading up to the day our 35th president was assasi
... morenated with adequate depth to satisfy any teen inquiry. From the background on the military exploits of both Lee Havey Oswald and John F. Kennedy to the failed invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs and the aftermath of the death of JFK, this book is full of tidbits that will be previously unknown to many readers. I would've liked to have seen more color photos in the book, but the large quantity of black and white photos do greatly enhance the story. A good resource for readers ages 12-16. less

some great photos. Adorable photo of JFK Jr. when he was three. Love the two part book idea.
Great general read if you don't know/remember much about this time period. GREAT PICS!
A fairly good synopsis of the highlights of Kennedy's life.
