    This is a fictional account of Jackie Kennedy s life after the assassination of her husband during his term as President of the USA I thought it sounded interesting and had great potential, but that ultimately it fell short and was rather ordinary I read this as a buddy read with a friend here on GR thanks, Elaine and I think we were agreed that the storyline seemed a little confusing and unfocussed at times I suspect that this story could truly have been a good read with some tighter edit This is a fictional account of Jackie Kennedy s life after the assassination of her husband during his term as President of the USA I thought it sounded interesting and had great potential, but that ultimately it fell short and was rather ordinary I read this as a buddy read with a friend here on GR thanks, Elaine and I think we were agreed that the storyline seemed a little confusing and unfocussed at times I suspect that this story could truly have been a good read with some tighter editing Through her reading, Elaine knowsabout the history of the Kennedy family and related events around this time than I do, so I found it a bit difficult to know where the line was drawn between reality and fiction short of fact checking everything on the net , so I kept asking Would that be true Did that really happen How could the author know that Surely that must be fiction The storyline gained somefocussed direction in the last couple of chapters, however then it seemed that the ending came all in a hurry and therefore felt rushed and anticlimactic

    Pollard has written a fictional account of Jackie Kennedy s life after the assassination of JFK Using factual events she creates a story where we see America s most popular first lady involved in espionage, dealing with the realities of her life as a widow and trying to find love again Mostly it is a fairly average story with some interesting moments One of the weaknesses in the book is that often I would lose track of the story line I think this was because Pollard did not always follow thr Pollard has written a fictional account of Jackie Kennedy s life after the assassination of JFK Using factual events she creates a story where we see America s most popular first lady involved in espionage, dealing with the realities of her life as a widow and trying to find love again Mostly it is a fairly average story with some interesting moments One of the weaknesses in the book is that often I would lose track of the story line I think this was because Pollard did not always follow through with what she intended to write about For me this did detract from the story over all I have to admit I did not really begin to enjoy this book until about the last 100 pages or so I was reading it and discussing it with a GR s friend as I went along so this added to the enjoyment of the book

    Writing is CLUNKY and factually suspect.

    Not exactly well written but it is an engaging fictionalized story about Jackie O It was interesting how the author filled in the blanks with her imagination regarding Jackie.

    This was a good book The story was interesting and I cared about the characters The only thing that bothered me was that it is a book of fiction based on Jackie Kennedy s life after JFK was killed So things kept making me wonder if it was true or not I love history so it made me want to read something based on the truth instead of being unsure Also, it really bashed JFK I mean, the author was focusing on how his actions affected Jackie, so she focused mainly on his affairs and how his fami This was a good book The story was interesting and I cared about the characters The only thing that bothered me was that it is a book of fiction based on Jackie Kennedy s life after JFK was killed So things kept making me wonder if it was true or not I love history so it made me want to read something based on the truth instead of being unsure Also, it really bashed JFK I mean, the author was focusing on how his actions affected Jackie, so she focused mainly on his affairs and how his family helped cover them up and everything I do really like JFK so it was hard reading about him in this light Especially when you are not sure if Jackie actually felt any of the things that Eve Pollard wrote she felt If this was a book just based on a fictional character, I would have really liked it and had nothing to complain about

    Ehh.The only thing that really kept me going with this book was the ever so slight possibility that it could have been something told to the author off the record while she was doing the biography, and maybe, just maybe, the author decided to write about it in a fictional account after all interested parties were deceased Not really sure about that oneThe story was not overly captivating, and her resolution was basically terrible It would have been a lot better if it were actually the Ehh.The only thing that really kept me going with this book was the ever so slight possibility that it could have been something told to the author off the record while she was doing the biography, and maybe, just maybe, the author decided to write about it in a fictional account after all interested parties were deceased Not really sure about that oneThe story was not overly captivating, and her resolution was basically terrible It would have been a lot better if it were actually the truth I guess we will never knowGreat for an airplane or beach read, as it took zero thought to get through

    A completely new view of Jackie O and her life as a spy I loved this book because the author took a lot of facts but incorporated a wild imagination to create a quick read about the life of one of America s icons.If you don t like fiction added to history to create a new version of the past, this is not the book for you.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I liked about the first 50 pages, then it all went to hell It started out as a recount of what was going on before and after JFK died, then it went into crazy stuff Pollard is a Jackie biographer, so I didn t know what to believe and what not to, which was frustrating for me I hated that she ended up having an affair when a huge chunk of the book was about her reeling from JFK s infidelities.

    A huge Jackie fan , I couldn t wait to read this take on her life after Jack While it did help me understand why she might have ever turned to Onassis ugh ,I found the story line disjointed and confusing Still reading about her fashion sense and the events she attended made me enjoy some parts of the book.
