5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written
Regardless of whether your a conspiracy theorist or not, there is no doubt that this is a beautifully written book. The minute by minute accounts are breathtaking in parts and finally adds the detail that so many accounts have been missing. The arrival into Dallas, the scenes at Parkland, the death of Officer Tippet (who is sometimes regarded as a mere footnote in...

3.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable reading ?
Four Days in November sets out to put some "flesh" on the dry bones of the Warren Commission Report, and also attempts to make it more "believable" to people who still have reservations as to its explaination of the events in Dallas, by anticipating readers' questions and debunking silly conspiracy arguments. Just beware, remember that Bugliosi's background, however, is...

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing!, 15 Nov 2010

If you lived through this, or know anything about it, this is the by far the very best book that has ever been written about it. It makes Jim Garrison's book look plain silly with its fabric of plots, counterplots and more suspects than Sinbad ever sailed with! Oliver Stone should be prosecuted for his blatant attempt to fabricate and pervert the truth with his silly film! But this book shines a light in all those dark places. It is an epic read. Unputdownable and it leaves you feeling the richer for having read it. Well researched and stylishly crafted you are taken inside the action like a silent watcher. You feel as if you're there, watching the drama unfold in front of you. A superb accomplishment in print, it's just a brilliant read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kennedy, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parkland: Four Days in November: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy (Paperback)
Always been interested in anything to do with the Kennedys and have read lots of books, but this covers what happened after

President Kennedy was shot and what happened at Parkland after, also covers a lot more about Oswald perhaps not being the

person who fired the shots, seeing they were fired front the front of Kennedys car and not from Book Depository. Very good book

anyone interested I would suggest you read it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not to be taken too seriously!, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parkland: Four Days in November: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy (Paperback)
Quite a good read but not to be taken seriously. The author has his own agenda and conveniently ignores the many anomalies of the Warren Report. The pages of recommendations at the start of the book I found rather overpowering and contrived somehow and I'm not at all sure that many are not just quotes taken out of context.

If you really believe that Oswald was the lone gunman who killed the President then read and enjoy. If you, like me, believe the whole affair to be a complete cover-up that has gradually been blown apart over the years then take this book with a pinch of salt and treat it like the novel it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive, 15 May 2009
This fascinating book sets the record straight. Despite familiarity with the story - knowing the ending, as it were - there is plenty of detail that keeps the narrative flowing, the 'minor' characters are fleshed out, and Bugliosi has presented a case that conspiracy theorists will find it difficult - if not impossible - to answer. A great read; impressive scholarship and a 'page turner'.

2.0 out of 5 stars a lawyer's story...Santa Claus will deliver it for you, 8 Dec 2009
By

(REAL NAME)   
FOUR DAYS IN NOVEMBER...A well written version of a terrible and sad event in recent history...but sadly, argued as only a procecution lawyer could do, managing to overlook absolutely every fact that could undermine his point of view...he has found LHO guilty in his own mind and then searches for any scrap of information that will support his position while avoiding all evidence that would undermine his case...as a lawyer, he should know that had Oswald ever appeared in court, a jury of 12 American citizens would have been asked to make any final decision as to his guilt or otherwise and as 85% of U.S.citizens believe there was a conspiracy, the court would find it hard to convict any one suspect...in fact, as the years pass and more information becomes available, even the original certainty that Oswald was involved in some way in the assassination, becomes somewhat doubtful.Having witnessed how our Government has lied and miss-led us on so many occasions and on so many subjects in recent years,those who suggest that the "cover-up" of the truth in JFK's assassination was government inspired, should be listened to with an open mind, sadly not an easy thing to do in present day America where we are all looking for scape-goats to blame for our own short comings...let me finish with a positive...compared with the comical effort by that idiot, Gerald Posner, this is a masterpiece.

2.0 out of 5 stars God almighty, this is supposed to be objective, 9 Sep 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is readble and zooms along at a pace but once you get over the last entry of the four days, Bugliosi goes into complete moron mode. Everyone is a 'kook', 'conspiracy theorist', 'nutter' et al, who does not agree with his viewpoint. For many this book will be a great read, and leave it at that. However what Bugliosi does is to use his prosecurors language to paint the picture of Oswald committing this crime alone as being a simple one. Essentially he has taken the Warren Commission Report and rejigged it, but essentially it is the same. He does not provide for any possibility of any alternative to the WC narrative, which leaves some tortuous ways of tying things up. Have a look at the tale of the two wallets for example or the mishandling of the bullet hulls, both dismissed as 'honest mistakes'. All in all a good read but the use of inflamitory language does the book no favours.
