    1. KOMET on said:

      This book offers some interesting observations and insights into the 10 year marriage of John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy (1953-1963) via what the author was able to assemble of the historical record, as well as from personal interviews with people who had close relationships with both Kennedys.

    2. Donna on said:

      I didn't have any preconceived ideas about Jack and Jackie Kennedy. I knew that the press protected politicians, I knew that their personal lives and values were different from most middle class values of that time period, I knew that their marriage was not initially based on love as much as on Kennedy needing a wife before he ran for President.I didn't learn a lot from this book because I have read many other similar books about JFK, the politics of the time and his assassination.This book was [...]

      The writing was not what I expected from an author with the credentials of Mr. Klein. However, it is a compelling read, full of details. A real glimpse into the lives of two extraordinary people. Extensive notes and bibliography.

    4. Myra on said:

      i am totally mesmerized by the idea of camelot. the problme was, nobody knew the innocence of the time until after it was over. kind of like our realization after 9/11. it's time to read this again.

    5. Joe on said:

      I'm obsessed with the Kennedy's, the idea of Camelot, and all of the things revolving around John F. Kennedy's presidency. While I definitely do not subscribe to the idea that his presidency was some sort of idyllic paradise, because all facts contradict that idea. While I do call it Camelot, only because while some would say it's not fitting, I could see it as an apt name for his presidency. That's a conversation for another time though. This book, I loved it. It's that simple, really. I absolu [...]

    6. Kate on said:

      I have been interested in Jackie Kennedy for a while and I wanted to know more about the dignified woman in the pink suit, so I decided it was time to read up on this. I am glad I did because this book has ignited an interest in 1950’s and 1960’s America. I found the changing dynamic between Jack and Jackie fascinating, and I think Klein explored this well throughout the book without imposing his opinions on the relationship he simply pieces together what people have witnessed. Jackie’s gr [...]

      Jack and Jackie Kennedy are arguably two of the most well-known public figures in American history. But how well does anyone truly know the story of this power couple; the daily rhetoric of their relationship; the sordid details of moments made famous by rumor? In All Too Human, Edward Klein sets out an intimate, detailed portrait of the love story of Jack and Jackie Kennedy, pieced together by first-hand accounts from family, friends, and associates of the couple. Beginning with their early liv [...]

    8. Skyqueen on said:

      Wow, so much more behind the scenes that we have never been privy to. I won't spoil it for you, but new revelations almost every page, from very personal to political. A Hollywood PR campaign if there ever was one, even to each other, never mind the nation. With all the social and communication media today, I don't think it would be possible for them to have produced Camelot as they did then. The Clintons had a hard time weaving the tale and Obama is not being successful either in hiding their i [...]

      Shortly after the 50th anniversary of JFK's death, I decided to read one of the many books I have on the Kennedys. All Too Human is a very appropriate title for the biography of Jack and Jackie Kennedy's love story and marriage. I enjoyed the book very much because Mr. Klein wrote extensively about their childhoods, families, courtship, marriage and the White House years. Whether everything he wrote about is really true, it gives a glimpse into many aspects of their lives that I had not read abo [...]

    10. Nancy on said:

      In spite of remembering Kennedy's election and assassination, which occurred during my childhood, I hadn't read much about the personal lives of Jack and Jackie Kennedy. This book furthered my opinion/generalization of politicians and the rich. They seem to be self-centered and without a conscience. However, there were poignant moments related, and in the end, I think that the Kennedys did have a kind of love.The chapters of this book were short and gave brief glimpses into certain events of Jac [...]

    11. Joanne on said:

      I would like to state that this book was very well done and deserves four or possibly even five stars, but for me to say I loved it is to lie- the reality of the relationship of Jack and Jackie was deeply depressing. Perhaps the average person wouldn't find it so grim, presuming they have prior knowledge of the nature of their union. I did not, and it was heavy as hell to read. The subject aside, it was rather brilliantly written with a truly impressive amount of research clearly done to craft s [...]

    12. Jacqueline on said:

      Kennedy bashing by a Journalist! Klein posts 3-4 line comments about a rumor or famous anecdote, from varied sources.I was not impressed at all, but I think that was his original intention. Poor Caroline! I was dismayed that in a supposed "love story" I was subjected to comments about female genitalia and where sexual encounters took place. There was no story to this, just disjointed paragraphs like he had scribbled down some random thoughts. I am embarrassed to say that I read this book! Read M [...]

    13. Diane on said:

      If you have ever been curious about the Jack/Jackie story, you will probably enjoy this book. The author wrote what I think is an unbiased look at these two very famous people and the evolution of their relationship from the time they met until JFK's assassination. It's certainly not a real life fairy tale!

    14. Dayna Miller on said:

      This story is beautifully written and is possibly my favourite book ever! Edward Klein captures one of the most dramatic love stories in history perfectly. I would recommend this, probably the best book about the love story of John F Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier. Confession: I love it so much, I have read it six times to be exact.

    15. Helaine on said:

      Edward Klein paints an unflattering picture of both Jack and Jackie--it certainly is no love story. Both seem "controlled" by parents--both as directors of each one's destiny and as role models. It makes "Camelot" a distasteful word.

    16. Barb P. on said:

      This book shows behind-the-scenes - a lot of baggage for both Jackie and Jack in their lives. Really shows a sad, sad side to their personal lives (and I mean this not in a good light).

    17. Cierra on said:

      wonderful and intimate storytelling about the life Jack and Jackie had together. I highly recommend

    18. Sheetal on said:

      interesting perspective, not very well written. why i continue to be fascinated by the kennedys, i don't know.

    19. Patty Abrams on said:

      Well-written account of the Kennedies. I learned a lot from this.
