Saw Bill on THE VIEW talking about his book and he said his book has Oswald as the lone killer.
Which I didn't like. I'm more of the Oliver Stone theory .

Even though there have been entirely too many books written on this subject, for this reason alone I hope this is a HUGE best seller.

I finished it and I can't recommend it.
The book gets into Kennedy PT-109, his sex life(which is good), Martin Luther King and his sex life and other stuff. I didn't get into it like Oliver Stone's JFK which left me thinking.
KILLING LINCOLN was a great book that I would look over again, but this one I don't care for.

Was in the library yesterday and this old lady comes in asking the librararian. "do schools have libraries in them?" , "well this book should be required reading for all 10th graders" She had this book in her hand. Apparently this 70 year old lady liked it.

If you wanna believe it was Oswald and only him behind it.
After I saw Oliver Stone's JFK I believe that movie.

I haven't read either of the "Killing" books but am interested in them. Are they bone fide histories? I ask this because I don't want to read an O'Reilly right-wing rant. If he's writing history without his political slant, I'd be interested.

At Amazon there are currently 4,360 reviews of it. That might help you - if you have the several hours you're going to need to read them. I generally read a few of the 1 star reviews and then some 3 star reviews and then some 5 star reviews to get a balanced outlook.

I'm not a fan of Bill O'Reilly; he comes across as more self-righteous than Godly. The Kennedy assassination does fascinate me, but I hated the film; too much crap in it that wasn't needed.
