    One reason why I love this book is because it is information and a story at the same time. I also love how the author builds up suspense when Oswald is trying to shoot Kennedy. It ends up to be pretty sad, but I still recommend it!

    This is a great book that has great detail describing the actual events. This author switched back and forth from the perspective from J.F.K. and his assassin. The book had some pictures to help you get a better understanding of the book and its events. This is a book that has both educational and interesting values. I DEFINITELY recommend this book!

    I really liked this book because it tells the story of J.F.K and the story of Lee Harvey Oswald. I also liked it because I got to learn a lot more than I knew before. The things that I learned were pretty cool too, like how Lee Harvey Oswald was in the military, and that J.F.K was rich when he was younger.

    If you like intense action then you would love this book. It is very suspenseful and exciting. It gives you insight on JFK’s life and about his family. It gives you detail about the day he was assassinated, and what proceeded to happen after his unfortunate death. It explains what happens to the assassin after and it gives you the tactics he used to kill the president. Another thing I like about the book is that it gives you background about the assassin and the president. I recommend this book to people who like history.

    You think it was just about the assassin but you are wrong. It also has some life about Kennedy and much more. It also has lots of action and exciting moments.
