Readers Reviews

Treat yourself to history

(New York USA)

Having lived through the JFK assassination at a very young age, it was a great insight into the events of the day which I then recalled in vivid detail as I read The Kennedy Detail by Gerald Blaine and Lisa McCubbin. It was detail oriented, a little slow in spots but brought to the forefront the sacrifices these brave men and women have contributed over the years. The agonizing step by step detail about the final political trip by the Kennedys and leading up to those "six seconds" in Dallas only served to undersocre the elements of danger that went with their job and meager salaries. When I was done I felt like I had relived each and every one of those minutes from the inaugeration tothe final burial at Arlington.

Inspirational, insightful and a good book. So get a warm drink, bundle up in front of the fire and pull up the afghan and read a piece of history. I guarantee that you won't be sorry.
