O Reilly's: Killing Lincoln, Kennedy, Jesus

O Reilly's: Killing Lincoln, Kennedy, Jesus

At this time I have read the first two, Lincoln and Kennedy, and have just bought the third book Killing Jesus a few minutes ago. I would recommend the first two books strongly and I suspect I will also be recommending the third soon.

ACCURACY

I think it would be beyond obvious for me to suggest that each of us knows something about all three cases. And for some of us, like me, and perhaps like you, I have read other accounts which have given good detail. I saw nothing in the two O Reilly books that conflicted with what I consider valid other accounts of the Lincoln and Kennedy deaths. Furthermore I saw absolutely nothing which struck me as logically silly.

ADDED DETAIL

Then why read it? Well the first two books while they agree with the good accounts I had known about before, add some interesting detail that is likely missing some other places. I found some of that detail interesting. For example of Kennedy, of course I knew about PT 109, the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis, Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe. However, this book tells more inside information and how deep some things went. My overall opinion? I was even more impressed with JFK than before. I think like all humans he began as just a human, but grew in the White House quickly to where I feel the Cuban Missile Crisis was a work of art.

KENNEDY DEATH CONSPIRACY

The only item I will give away is that the O Reilly book on Kennedy agrees with a Discovery Channel close re-enactment of the shooting of Kennedy. Neither place states that there was no conspiracy, but both O Reilly and the Discovery Channel are clear that it was a single shooter - Oswald. I could go into detail, and the Discovery Channel did go into more detail, but simply the witnesses heard three shots and there were three shell casings on the floor where Oswald shot. Yes, yes, someone could have thrown down an empty casing, but at some point I just give in and say ... yep one shooter. If there was a conspiracy it was at another point in the "program". The Discovery Channel did give more detail and also tried to trace the third bullet and also its timing - which hit no one. But the book I say is fine. There was also a Discovery Channel life of Kennedy on the day of he was shot that I had also found quite interesting. It showed me how good the man was at speeches.

INTERESTING READ?

I read both books fast although months apart. The Kennedy book I just started days ago and is now done. I generally just read in "dead times" but broke my rule for this book.

A FOURTH BOOK?

Okay, me being me at some point I have to get silly here. One almost gets the idea that O Reilly might be trying to kill someone off every few months just so he has a new book to write. I would monitor his show to see if guests actually leave. I would also suggest that if his fourth book is "The Killing of a Fox Camera Man" then we should worry a lot.

But in summary, he and his co writers seem to do a nice job.

WHERE DID I BUY?

I have become a handheld "pad" user and have an older Samsung seven inch or so pad that is just fine for books and music. It does not connect to cell phone lines, but only to wifi which of course means no added money for service. I download from Google Play - after buying a Google Play card at a drug store. Kennedy plus Jesus books, were just under $25 total for the two. Google Play does want you to download their application "Google Play Books" for usage - probably so they can control what you are doing with the book. However, Google does allow you to download the book and have it resident on your pad such that you do not need connection to wi fi or cell phone line for airplane usage or just sheer convenience. I was pleased at how easy it was.

The only Google problem I saw was that if adding SD memory disk on your pad, do it before getting the Google Play Books application or downloading the book to be resident on your pad. I did the application and the download and then added SD memory that had never been there before and oddly Google could not find the book. It was on main memory of course, which was the only possibility before, but stupidly seemed to look for it on the SD disk and nowhere else. But it was easy to remove the application and the books and then redo them, and then all was fine when I did it with the SD memory all in place. And of course I lost no purchases or money re-doing things. I also found that I could if I wanted to - just read it also on my computer.

And so, I would also recommend Google Play as not a bad option.

Great reviews, RN.  My husband has read Killing Kennedy, and Killing Lincoln.  He IS looking forward to Killing Jesus, it's on his Christmas list.

I think Killing Jesus is in three parts.  The first part is the historical background of the area and I just finished part one.  I would highly recommend the book "Killing Jesus" if only for part one.  I now know who Julias Caesar was and Caesar Augustus, Cleopatra, Octavian, and how they all related.  Perhaps someone tried to tell me before, but I did not get it.  I think one of the "genius" parts of the O Reilly book series is how they take history and turn it into interesting read like a novel - and now "I get it" whereas before I was bored.

I just realized something.  O Reilly breaks the rule of "I before e except after c".  Either O Reilly cannot spell or this was done purposely by the Irish who hate the English and wished to make a point.  Of course the "i before e" thing was also dis-proven long ago by science ("science").
