I am currently reading this book, however I am finding it a bit of a struggle, The author refers to and quotes so many people, that I find it a bit confusing. I don't think the book flows very well, bits of it are very interesting, but at some bits I am just bored.

2334 A Woman Named Jackie, by C. David Heymann (read 212 Oct 1990) This is a gossipy book, made up by one who seems to write like a journalist, but with less ability. He has interviewed hundreds of people and quotes endlessly. He hasn't written a book--he has recorded gobs and gobs of interviews. His bibliography is 18 pages long. The book tells of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, who was born in 1929 and still lives--so ordinarily I wouldn't read her biography. The book is full of derogatory things about her and the Kennedys and also has so much trivia in it that it really was in part a waste of time reading. But I firmly believe the immoralities of public people--people who seek or are in high office--should be subject to the bright light of publicity. I conclude JFK's private life is indefensible and he may not be in heaven. ( )

If you were around in the 60's or remember the endless talk of Jacqueline Kennedy or Jackie O, this is a great book. It's pretty lengthy but also very well sourced. ( )
