Seriously, Bill O'Reilly writing that is more than political slop? This would be actual substantial thinking and writing. Does he excoriate Lincoln for freeing the slaves? Are we talking about the same Bill O'Reilly?
I could not believe this either! Bill O'Reilly is NOT an academic of history and certainly is taking credit for writing a historical novel that was obviously written by the other author. This is a way of selling a book based on name recognition and a viewer following. He could have watched the History Channel or Redford's movie, the Conspirator to get details. This is not a thriller==as the review suggest. It is 19th century history, something O'Reilly knows NOTHING about.
I have to wonder how these Two people who presumably do not know Mr O'Rielly personally can claim to suggest that a college educated man and teacher knows nothing about Lincoln or the Civil War. Or the history of the 19th Century.I suspect he knows plenty on both subjects and could possibly teach them a thing or two. Collete M. Bloom and "Segway show themselves to be "Pinheads"
It's quite evident that Bill O'Reilly is considerably better educated and more articulate than this cretin Segway. All books should be judged by their content and accuracy....not judged by a political loon who obviously only wants to make a liberal statement. Shame on him.
Gee, Collette, tell us where you got your History major and Master's degree. Was it Harvard? Oh, that was O'Reilly. Can you elucidate how you find it so obvious that this was ghost written? Try to calm your envy and give supporting evidence for your assertions. Redford? Very funny. He was SO accurate in Butch and Sundance. Thanks for the big laugh.
One thing all the reviewers and people making comments seem to forget, myself included is that there is a co-author by the name of Martin Dugard who seems to be a "third wheel" in all the fuss about this book.
Could not believe it? How does Bill O'Reilly know anything about history when he is one of the most well known journalist, and not to mention him being a History teacher... Don't make comments you don't know squat about!
Killing Lincoln is a great book that appeals to a younger crowd. I love the style of this book and his attempt in making history a fun subject. On top of it being a great and fun read, I find every bit of the information 100% true and accurate. Also loves how he quotes soldiers and officers in his novel. Not only does it appeal to a younger crowd, but it is a great read for every age group and people who are interested in Civil War.
Hate, that's all I read in her comments and one or two others. When you've been brainwashed by the liberal (liberal truth, oxy moron) teachers and Professors of this past two or three generations, it's more than likely you'll never again see rational thought or the intend of the original historian writers. But then you can always become a 99%er and whine about your lot in life.
The thing you have to realize is that Mr. O'Reilly is an ass and everything he does will be judge by that knowledge. I would never buy a book from this guy simplily for that reason. He is a liar and is running this country into the ground. Do not buy any books from this phoney. People will say this is a "pinhead remark" but that is what they are required to say from Bill himself for they cannot think on thier own.
How can he be running this country into the ground when Obama has already accomplished that as President? So I guess you are saying that he is more powerful than the President of the United States...Give me a break!
