When I was at the library I walked right by this book at first It didn t seem like a book that I would interested in just a bunch of people talking about where they were when President Kennedy was shot But for some reason I went back to look at it and then I checked it out I started to read it and it surprised me I have been busy with school and other things in my life I get in the habit of starting a book and not completing it and or getting distracted by another book But this book kept my interest JFK has always been a fascinating historical figure to study I didn t think that I would learn much about as I would be in just a general bio but I was wrong I think that this book taught me that there are then one method about learning about a person One of the best things I liked about this book is that to portray Kennedy as then he is the man was like everyone else he did have his faults I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Kennedy or the assignation The book goes into then people just recounting where they were on that day but there are intimate accounts from those who knew him personally and they go into the conspiracy theories that surround his assassination

Read Where Were You? America Remembers the JFK Assassination ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Hone lines and by word of mouth plunging the country into shock and sorrow It’s hard to imagine how the last fifty years would have unfolded if President John F Kennedy had lived Would Vietnam have dragged on until 1974 Would Nixon have come into power It’s difficult to say but combining evocative archival images with the uniue first person stories of those who lived through it Where Were You says what the history books can’t and offers a fresh look at what was what is and what might have been since that f. This could have easily rated 5 stars All they needed to do was to omit the final 13 or so of the book when they stopped treating the assassination as a historical event and begin treating it as a pop culture phenomenaThe beginning gives voice to people you usually don t hear from Ruth Paine with whom Marina was living The guy who gave Oswald a ride to the depository on 1122 The smaller players in the tragedy Those were highly fascinating Then it moves on to famous personalities people who were either close to Kennedy or were higher ups in the government Again fascinatingBut then we move on to the section labelled generously Culture Some of the people were mildly interesting Tom Hanks comes to mind But others had nothing to do with the assassination and never knew JFK I like Robert DeNiro but his space in this book was completely irrelevant I don t care what Jane Fonda thinks about anything at all let alone something of such historical significance as JFK s murder Same with Chris Matthews though he was in an earlier section Oliver Stone s contribution was unsurprisingly nothing but a long rant about conspiracies I don t recommend giving up on books half way through and I stuck with this until the bitter end Having said thatI couldn t blame anyone who read the first half of this and then put it down and started their next book
