    One thought on “The Day John Died

    1. Surreysmum

      The author starts this biography of John F. Kennedy Jr. with the assertion that he was a world figure on the scale of Princess Diana, whose early death caused similar shockwaves of emotion in the general public. My response to this can only be that that (if true) can surely only be true in the U.S. Had I not been picking up subway reads at a massive speed at a church booksale, I would not have inclined to pick up a biography of such a relatively minor figure, of whose existence, certainly, I was [...]

    2. Ice

      The Day John Died is a misleading title, because it's mostly about his life: his family dynamics, romances, dreams, and achievements. Christopher Andersen, a former Time and People editor, gives a surprisingly well rounded account of John's character--along with 73 eloquent photos and lots of the dishy details inquiring minds want to know.The book is both trashy and classy. Though some of the inside stuff is tough to know for sure (was Carolyn Bessette really a manic druggie who denied John sex [...]

      Get A Feel for the kind of guy JFK Jr. really wasThis was on the NY Times bestsellers list. I suppose I was curious. I wanted to read about JFK Jr. I never really read any of the MANY Kennedy books that are out there and available. It was all NEW to me when I read it here. JFK Jr. is a year younger than I. I felt I could relate to him. Now, he's gone 'to another place' like Princess Diana and my OWN mother and father. I enjoyed the book but it lacked the more profound and literary aspects that I [...]

      I found this book for $1 at the Libraryhad not heard of it before. It is a well-written, behind the scenes, documented look at the day we lost John Kennedy Jr. Much of it was emotional to read, as I was a young teenager when I tearfully watched him as a little boy of 3, salute his father's caisson as it passed his mother, sister and himself. There are details of his entire life that had never been printed before and it made me sad to realize we lost someone who most likely would have gone on to [...]

    5. Samantha

      So my mother saw me reading The Day Diana died (and I thought I was being so stealthy!), saw this book at a book fair (okay, she saw it at THE book fair. The Green Valley Book Fair) and picked it up for me. I love the Kennedy's almost as much as I love the royals so I was thrilled with the gift. John F. Kennedy Jr. met a tragic end, for sure. What a terrible waste of what could have been an incredible life.

    6. Lorma

      I have been a Kennedy fanatic since I was a teen. My sister-in-law got me this book for my Birthday.This was an interesting book. It told the story from his life in the White House with his family, his father's assasination, his marriage to Carolyn Bessette, and finally his tragic death in a plane crash in 1999.

    7. Dawn

      I have been on a Kennedy kick since we were on vacation out east. I have never read much about the Kennedy's, so this was interesting. It wasn't only about when John John died, but a lot of history of his and Caroline's life, with some stuff about Jackie thrown in too.

    8. Patty Abrams

      This book was not so much about the day John died, but about his entire life from the president's son to his mom trying to protect him. Stuff I have already read about over and over and over. Learned nothing new.

    9. Barbara

      excellent book anything about the kennedys is so great to read. this however was really a heartbreaker - so young

    10. Nancy

      I thought from the title it would mostly deal with the plane crash and questions surrounding it. Disappointing in that regard. Most of the book was a biography. OK, but not what I expected.

    11. Michael

      An informative look at an important figure of our time. So many great details make this a great read. Enjoyed a lot.

    12. Gail

      Definitely not a deep bookbut I knew that. Some interesting tidbits and perfect to read while knitting at the same time. Always fascinated by anything JFK !

    13. Emily

      It was kind of like reading a really long US Weekly article. Not that I'm above that, but after a while I started to feel like a voyeaur.

    14. Jennifer

      This book was interesting, but I would not recommend reading it right after Jackie after Jack because it refers to a lot of the same events.

    15. Anneliese Gimpel

      I find the crash that killed JFK Jr to be very suspicious and hoped to get some more info, but got no info from this book. It's really about his life and was mildly interesting, but probably not worth the time it took to read. Would have been a good 30 page condensed book. The video about the crash, however, is fascinating and I would have liked either corroboration and refutation of what's in the video.

    16. Joy

      I thought this was an interesting book. It told the life story from his life in the White House with his family, his father's assasination, his marriage to Carolyn Bessette, and finally his tragic death in a plane crash in 1999. For anyone fascinated with the life of JFK Jr, i highly recommend this book.
