really liked it

Ok, I haven't actually read the whole book. I really liked it, in spite of him constantly referring to people by first names and having to search back to see who 'George' or 'Randoph' or 'Bill'was. Luckily, there were enough references to the likes of 'Bobby', 'Teddy', 'Averill', and 'Dwight' to help me through. But I had to stop before November, 1963. Just couldn't do it. I may still finish it.

message 1: by Ron (new) - rated it 4 stars

Ron You should definitely continue with it. His heartbreak at the assassinations of the 60s are pwerful. His prescient takes on Nixon and his open disdain for Carter, the 1970s entries are fascinating as well.
