Another book for the top ten.,
This review is from: Libra (Paperback)
Somtimes you see a book and read a few reviews on Amazon and you just know it's for you.Immediately after starting this book I had a feeling it was going to be superb.The writing is first class,the kind that is rare.The story is of course familiar but added to in a clever sophisticated way,rather than blindly slapping on layers of conspiracy.Regardless of the subject matter it's a stand up book and he surely could have written an equally engrossing book if he had just made it all up.It pulls you in,and you won't find yourself racing through the last few pages.A classic to the very last word.

I love your enthusiastic approach, but how does this "factional" work compare to the truly epic Four Days In November by Vincent Bugliosi, which is the truly definitive work of the assassination of JFK that no one should miss out on reading? I'd love to know.

Well I've never read that, but I shall definitely look that up. After being swamped with info on this event I wasn't sure that I would enjoy this book, but there is something about the style of his writing that draws you in.Without sounding too trite, it felt a bit dreamlike, hallucinatory even.I think it's the fact that he connects you to the characters almost as though you've no knowledge of the event, so as it goes on you become less and less judgemental and just get carried along. Thanks for the mentioning the other book, if I read it I'll let you know.
