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 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.

    Always thought that Bobby & Jackie had things...looks like they did

    As a child I always wondered why Mrs. John Kennedy looked so lovingly at her brother-in-law...now I know.

    Jackie and Bobby are the classic lovers...right love...wrong time...

    Great beach read....

    Amazing and Intriguing. Hungry for more on Jackie's life!

    Jackie was the perfect mother role model as I was growing up in the 60's, and this book confirms this impression. She protected her children from the media before and after President Jack Kennedy's death. However, I was floored to find out about all the men in Jackie's life! When President Kennedy's rumors about his infidelities surfaced, I always thought Jackie was not like John F. Kennedy. I always wanted to believe different from her. I was very sad to find out Jackie and Robert's love could never be.

    Interesting

    If this is true, portrays Jackie as not so nice person or Bobby.

    An affair to remember?

    I have been on a 1960's reading jag lately, a kind of nostalgic look back at my parent's decade of youth. Helps me understand where they come from and it was an interesting time of change. I was excited to get an advance copy of this book as it looked to be a trashy but fun read, and I can say it delivered on both counts (trashy fun that is)! Did Jackie and Bobby Kennedy have a love affair after the assassination of JFK? This author makes the case that they did and it is fascinating reading. But how much real truth is there here? And even if it is all true is it something the public really needs to know? The book held a certain creepy fascination over me, I couldn't stop reading, yet a part of me thought I should. Its that kind of read. It is well written, and appears well documented but I would be interested to hear if there are any dissenting voices out there?

    Speaking of 1960's and creepy fascination, Check out "Misfits Country" for a look into the mind of Marilyn Monroe and the making of her final film.
