The topic of JFK's assassination is fascinating, and this book left no detail unexplored in the history of the event. Of course, that's great if you're a real student of the assassination, but for a casual reader like me, the details got a bit tedious. However, it wasn't a difficult read, and it kept my interest enough to get through it all. One comment ... many reviewers have said it offers irrefutable proof that there was no conspiracy. I totally don't agree. There's little evidence that there...more
Wow. No way am I reading the 1600 page edition of this, but I am very glad I am wading through this well crafted nonfiction book. The voice of reason sounds throughout. Why doesn't Mr. B run for something, he would get my vote. Or better yet, have him nominated for the Supreme Court. Many details give this whole picture that it took him 20 years to write. Well done, well done. lkp
This is a through examination of the Kennedy assassination and its aftermath. Author Bugliosi makes the case that Oswald and Oswald alone was JFK's killer. His documentation is painstaking just as you would expect from the Charles Manson prosecutor. That said, his writing style almost makes you think you are reading a novel. Simple to follow. Anyone who has an interest in the JFK assissination must read this book.

Four Days in November: The Original Coverage of the John F. Kennedy Assassination was a great choice to read for my book report for history class. I had to read it fast, a 600 page book in two weeks, but I found it very enjoyable. I was never bored while reading it. What really interested me was how the country reacted, and even how it impacted everyone else across the globe. Great, great book.

Excellent chronicle of the 4 days commencing with the morning of the Kennedy assassination through the burials of JFK and Dallas police officer J D Tippit. Bugliosi breaks down these 4 days with a minute by minute detailing of all the events of those 4 days.

Well worth the time invested!
Don McDougall
At times fascinating, at other times; pretty dry, but I guess that's what happens when reading newspaper articles one after another from 1963. Some of the articles are VERY interesting, and others; not so much.
Donna Erlandson
This book is priceless too me. I remember where I was when this happened, in High School and the announcement came over the speaker system that our President was dead. Great piece of history
I love Bugliosi and will read anything he writes. This book left me wanting to know more of what he knows and, luckily, there's now a whole other tome (Reclaiming History) waiting for me.
Fascinating, for those of us who lived through it. Just the actual NY Times coverage of the four days - no comment other than the introduction.
Carl Owen
One big conspiracy! Enjoyed the book. Have always been interested in Kennedy assasinations and some of it similarities to Lincoln!
Patrick Nichol
This is a fascinating slice of American history. It's an incredible example of journalism under intense deadline pressure.
Very interesting timeline of assassination following the many players involved
