JFK details were the most interesting.
on December 3, 2013
I enjoyed the book for most part. I understand the need to get to know the author by learning the details of her life leading up to meeting JFK - and they were interesting. The final third of the book was not all that interesting....and frankly, as a result, I was happy to be finished with the book. The middle 3rd was great as it dealt with the JFK years. Very, very interesting. I will forever view JFK in a knowing and different light as a result of the book. I knew he was a womanizer so that didn't faze me...but the way he operated when he decided he wanted someone as a sexual play thing....simply assuming they wanted him too - that was an eye-opener. And the fact that he kept the relationship going despite her being a self-professed plain Jane, that surprised me. I assumed that he would only want the super-hot girls. JFK also seemed to enjoy her company in non-sexual ways. Who would have thought that to be the case.
All in all, it was a good read.
