Bobby and Jackie

For anyone interested in the Kennedys or Jackie O, this is a great read! I'm not much for writing on books of this nature, but it was a good book. I wish that the "affair" had not happened because I believe you hurt good people with love afairs. I'm sure Ethel knew abou...
For anyone interested in the Kennedys or Jackie O, this is a great read! I'm not much for writing on books of this nature, but it was a good book. I wish that the "affair" had not happened because I believe you hurt good people with love afairs. I'm sure Ethel knew about the sexual exploits of Bobby and Jack, but it should not have been shoved in her face by being in the "family". Grief is not an excuse for what happened. I believe from reading the book that they really knew each other and might have been good for each other had they not already been married. I also believe it is the reason Jackie married Onassis which was a shame for all involved. Onassis had no love for Jackie either so the whole marriage was a sham. It is truly amazing what we do as adults. I believe the Kennedys could have done so much more if they had been able to put aside their private lives once in a while and this book proves it.

Trashy

I thought this was going to be a love story between Bobby and Jackie. Instead it was just a book detailing all the sordid affairs that all the Kennedy's had. I couldn't even finish reading it.

    Too much information....not concise

    I bought the book because I was an integral part of the Kennedy era. I worked for RFK's campaign in college. I found the book to be "all over the place" and not a concise, accounting of how the "love story" progressed. There were some interesting parts but it appeared to be more of an expose of who was sleeping with whom.

    I was dissapointed.

    At last the ho is exposed

    I've never been a fan of the Kennedys. Nazi Sympathizers, womanizers, alcoholics, money hungry, possible murderers, (whether directly or by contract), phony religious fanatics. But most of all I despised Jackie. What an amoral phony! She sold her body, cheated with married men, raised two extremely stupid children. UGHHHHH! Good book. At last the lies are being exposed,

    Gossipy, engaging

    Undeniably interesting, but is it true? All the people in this book certainly got around.

    Wow

    I was a kid when President Kennedy was killed.

    After his death, Jackie and the children moved into a home I believe in Georgetown, before her move to New York.

    There was footage of the first time Bobby Kennedy went to visit Jackie in her new home.
    When he left the look on her face at him as she closed the door made my father exclaim at the time "They're having an affair".
    I guess he was right, if this book is accurate.
