    I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review. i rated it 4.5 out of 5 Stars:I'll be honest, I wanted to read and review this book because I've never really understood this country's fascination and love for what many refer to as the "Camelot" period in American politics. I was born just months before the assassination of John F. Kennedy but I grew up hearing about "Jackie" and everything taking place in her life post "Jack". While [...]

    "O! Jackie" by Mercedes King is fictional tale of a president, First Lady, and their complicated lives. This is a fictional account, loosely based on the lives of JFK and Jackie Kennedy. Loosely. A lot of it is true, but there is plenty of rumor, probably, maybe, coulda, shoulda, and what ifs to go around. I will treat this review as a review of a work of complete fiction to protect the innocent/guilty. I will review the writing rather than the research and/or daydreaming.The first third of this [...]

    It is seldom that I can really lavish praise on a fellow writer in the way I'd like to with Mercedes King. The incredible style in which she has put together some astounding historical stories as seen through the eyes of its participants will have any reader mesmerized. Somehow, she has used accurate historical documents and research and combined that material with a passion for the characters themselves that allows them to live again. Reading these five related titles, four shorts and this nove [...]

    Who hasn't been captivated by the mystique that was Camelot, and by the U.S.'s own royal family that is the Kennedy clan? Who hasn't wondered about the reality of the widespread rumors and inner workings of this famous family?In O! Jackie, author Mercedes King weaves a captivating tale where history meets fiction in a "what if / what may have occurred" memoir of Jackie and John F. Kennedy's marriage. Written in the third person narrative, the reader is treated to a fascinating story of what coul [...]

    I love a good historical fiction book, and this indeed fits the bill in a big way. It is ironic--I started reading this about the same time my mom began reading O'Reilly's "Killing Kennedy." We continued to share stories back and forth, and even though this book is historical fiction, a good share of it can be supported factually or at least via the rumor mill. After reading this book, I believe that the Kennedy's no longer seem like the absolute "perfect" family any more. Don't get me wrong--I [...]

    REVIEWThis book is about the Kennedy family. The author gives some information about all of them. The main part of the book is about Jackie, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. She married into the Kennedy family. She had to have been a strong woman overall. She was a fashion icon, a First Lady, a mother and a wife.She was in a marriage that she was expected to remain in. Her own family and Joe Kennedy expected it, demanded it. What Joe Kennedy wanted, Joe Kennedy got. Jackie held her pain inside so to [...]

    Imagine Jackie Kennedy telling you the story of her life with Jack. You see Camelot through Jackie's eyes. You live out all her hopes, her fears and her dreams. Reality and fiction meet.I absolutely couldn't put this book down once I started it. I was captivated.We all know that her marriage to JFK wasn't all that it was cracked up to be. As I read, I almost felt their marriage might have been a bit like Charles and Diana's, only in Jackie's case there was more than one women with her husband.Ma [...]

    Wow. What a book!! Who doesn't want to know what REALLY happened in Camelot? This book is a work of fiction but it certainly opens our eyes to many different possibilities. I can't say I liked many of the characters in this book. Jackie herself was a pushover who put up with too much garbage from a womanizing jerk (and that's being kind to her less than honorable husband) but she was portrayed as a human woman, not an iconic figure. We saw her flaws, we felt her pain, I cried with her and yelled [...]

    For Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, marriage was no Age of Camelot. Notorious for his womanizing, Jack Kennedy's frequent indiscretions and thoughtlessness caused Jackie great distress. When his affair with Marilyn Monroe gets out of hand and threatens to damage his Presidency, Jackie makes a monumental decision. If I were to assign this novel a genre, it would have to be historical fiction/suspense. The author has taken a "what if?" situation, and turned out a spellbinding story filled with histori [...]

    Having read extensively about the Kennedys, this book felt more like a review primer to me, but I did appreciate the humanizing of the cultural icons, and helping the reader feel what Jackie must have with the constant affairs and heartache. How she adapted to the Kennedy clan and their patriarch was also an interesting touch. The book alternates between narrative and Jackie's journal that her son 'finds' after her death, and reads to the reader. This was a great idea, as it made the book more p [...]

    I have always been fascinated with the Kennedy family so this book was a perfect read for me. In this novel the author tells the story of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, a First Lady, a fashion icon, a mother and a wife. Outwardly she was the perfect wife and perfect first lady. Inwardly she had her own demons, the heartbreak of miscarriages, the humiliation of her husbands infidelities and the lack of privacy that comes when your life is in the public eye. The story ends in 1962, and we all know wh [...]

    Didn't see that comingRecently I've become interested in the whole JFK/Jackie O/Marilyn Monroe "love triangle" (if there even was one, I'm a sucker for a good conspiracy theory) so I decided to give this book a go. I read the author's other short stories on the couple and thought they were pretty decent but this oneis one was really good. I enjoyed the facts mixed with fiction giving me a whole different perspective of the "affair" and how it effected the first lady. And the ending provided a ni [...]

    This was one book I couldn't wait to read once I got it and WOW I wasn't disappointed! Mercedes pens her plot realistic with her characters that come to life and emotional. Even though it is a book of fiction, you can't help but wonder if it could be true. I total must read that I highly recommend!This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

    Very interesting read.I found myself having a hard time remembering at times that this was fictional. one must wonder if there at least some half truths there.

    Did write another review but revised it. One of the biggest pieces of garbage I have read in decades So ludicrous I just want others to steer clear of this book.

    I rather enjoyed the "it could have happened this way" but found the scene between Jackie, Bobby and Frank absurd. Other than that one bit of flight of fancy this was a good summer read for a couple of rainy days in July. The writing flowed but it was fluffy. Easy read that does not need deep thought. Update -- A real piece of trash. Does not need thought to toss!

    I loved reading this book although it very often made me quite sad. Yes the book is a novel and yes it is classified as fiction but so much of what is written is actually true making it difficult to determine just what is true and what isn't. I have so much JFK memorabilia in my house from when my grandmother passed away - he was not only a president but also an icon. He died before I was born so I have to wonder how much the public really knew about he and the Kennedy clan. Of course he is not [...]

    I really liked this book, and couldn't put it down. What I liked most was that the author focused mostly on how Jackie O dealt with her husband's infidelities. Although it's a work of fiction, you know that some parts must have been true, in how Jackie felt being a Kennedy and being married to a man like JFK. I also loved that the author incorporated journal writings of Jackie, that her son found in the beginning. I gave this book four stars instead of five because I didn't care for the ending. [...]

    Interesting perspective. Couldn't put it down. I don't trust ANY autobiography or history books because authors have their own agenda. If the subject wants to authorize their story, the story will slant to their favor. Unauthorizedy be exaggerated to increase sales. My only issue is that I didn't see where the author said outright that this was fiction, so, you might be fooled. I enjoyed this.

    I LOVED THIS BOOK! Mercedes King is a genius! I read this book cover to cover and it was phenomenal. I loved every element of this story. I love the Kennedys and I love to read books on their lives (fiction and nonfiction) and this became one of my top ten books immediately. This is a definite recommendation to anyone who loves historical fiction, the Kennedys, or books in general! I loved this book so much! Well done!

    Feeling cheated. I bought this book with the understanding that it was a factual story. I was shocked when I read things that couldn't possibly be true. Imagine my surprise when i read the authors note at the end saying it was a work of fiction!

    Quite possibly the dumbest book I have ever read in my entire existence. How many stars? Maybe minus ten.

    You may think you know Jackie Kennedy, but wait until you read this. A very private glimpse at everyone's favorite first lady.

    Recommended by a friend & gifted by another the story line is thoroughly captivatingLuvd reading the book. Charm of Jackie doesn't seem to ceaseAwesome Book!!
