THE DEATH OF A PRESIDENT November 20 - November 25, 1963

by | Read by Joe Barrett

History • 33.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

The noted author and historian wrote this groundbreaking work in 1967, detailing the final six days of John F. Kennedy’s life. It was the only book on the subject authorized by the Kennedy family, and it provides intimate details of Kennedy’s final hours. Joe Barrett’s gravelly voice gives the book a comfortable feel, and he mixes in some character voices that make the work authentic. Barrett moves through the copious details, reading slowly enough that we can comprehend the facts but also allowing us time to process the gravity of what we’re hearing. In some passages Barrett drops the ends of his sentences, but this book deserves a wide audience both for its writing and Barrett’s narration.
