Disappointed in the content

If you expect a lot of reflection on the assassination of John Kennedy in this book, you'll be disappointed.
It might have been better titled: Reflections on the Life of John H. Kennedy (and Some Additional Material on the Assassination).

November 22, 1963 is a definitely misleading title for this book.

Definitely worth a listen!

I am astonished at the related stories about JFK that no-one will know if they don't read or listen to this. He was and, I agree with many of the contributors, that if he would have had a chance, his presidency could and would have been as phenomenal as he was.

Repetition

All I can say is repetition, repetition, repetition! Good readers, but the repetition gets boring.

The Kennedy Camp

Interesting piece of oral history. I would have liked to hear the actual voices of the contributors. There are some spots where the narrator repeats the same paragraph. It ll have to be edited in the future.
I m thinking an oral history of the Iran/Iraq war , the fall of the Shah, the invasion of Kuwait,, etc etc would be apropos at this juncture. Make it available on Amazon Plus. Cheerio....steven

Very interesting

Interesting to hear the thoughts of many people who knew Kennedy. It was a tragedy for the country to loose him.

where was I that day?

Would you try another book from Dean R. Owen and Helen Thomas (foreword) and/or the narrators?

mostly you will not care where these people were or what they thought especially if, like me, you actually remember it

Has November 22, 1963 turned you off from other books in this genre?

not at all

How did the narrator detract from the book?

not at all

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from November 22, 1963?

most of it, pamphlet

Any additional comments?

no, thats pretty hard on a book already

Where were you when the great man was shot?.

A great listen,i would recommend this to anyone.Many differing opinions on the Kennedy presidency.I was only 13 months old when JFK died.So i'll admit to having a morbid interest in all things JFK.
