PLOT: New Bio of the last years of the Kennedy Family in the White House~ VERY GOOD~
SECRETS of Camelot: the beautiful Kennedy Family ...with two adorable children. This new bio is very well researched. The hidden side of the beautiful Kennedy Family have a few new shadows show up. This shows a new "side to Jackie" from her very protective side to her children to her PUTTING up with the philandering husband the President of the USA Jack. JFK is also is portrayed as an over sexed USER of women. "he learned" at the knees of the Master (Joe Kennedy) his cheating father according to this bio. This is a very good book and audiobook. it moves along very well and captures your attention from the first. The reader has a very nice voice and inflection. I really liked it and found new info on the Kennedys. I have listened to several other Kennedy Bios and liked this better than the rest. the "Dr. Feelgood" INFO is very detailed and how both the Kennedys but especially JFK used amphetamines and steroids and pain killers "to boost their energy" from the demands of the White House. I give this 5 out of 5 for the new look inside the glamorous Kennedy White House that is revealing and interesting. GOOD book.

What did you love best about These Few Precious Days?
I could stop listening to this book. It provided a unique and fascinating perspective on this legendary couple, but simultaneously humanized them in a way that I have not experienced in any other books on this topic. They are portrayed as two beautiful, intelligent, and flawed individuals navigating both personal and historical highs and lows. It was incredibly interesting, beautiful, and tragic - just like "September Song" the poignant song which gives the book its title.
What was one of the most memorable moments of These Few Precious Days?
Of course there were many memorable excerpts, but the part that spoke the most to me was how the tragic loss of their newborn, Patrick, brought them closer than ever in the months before the assassination.
What does Robertson Dean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Robertson Dean was the perfect narrator for this book, in my opinion. It required his unque combination of sensitivity and gravitas.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It was all very moving.
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed this book even though it was so heartbreaking.
