Kurzbeschreibung

God had a talent for creating exceptional women--Helen of Troy and Cleopatra come to mind. So does Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, who lives again in this "warts-and-all" portrait. It's being released on the 20th anniversary of the tragic death, in 1994, of the icon who changed America's beliefs about what a woman of style, power, and influence could accomplish "behind the throne" of men whose careers changed the course of history.

During her tumultuous life, she zealously guarded her privacy and her secrets, but in the wake of her death, more and more revelations have emerged about her frustrations, her rage, her passions, her towering strengths, and her delicate fragility, which she hid from the glare of the world behind oversized sunglasses. Within this posthumous biography, a three-dimensional woman emerges through the compilation of some 1,000 eyewitness testimonials from men and women who knew her over a period of decades.

The public epitome of charm, grace, and elegance, the private, chain-smoking Jackie was known for her sharp wit and her acid tongue, dissing some of the great men and women she encountered. Examples include such figures as Nancy Reagan (“I heard she used to give the best head in Hollywood when she was a starlet at MGM”); Queen Elizabeth II (“pompous, stuffy, a heavy trip, and seriously pissed off at me for turning on Philip”); or Martin Luther King, Jr. (“a terrible man and a tricky, phony, skirt-chaser and race baiter”).

This outspoken testimonial to the flimsier side of Camelot contains a cornucopia of gossip and intrigue, including details about Jackie’s scandalous love affairs with her two brothers-in-law (Bobby and Teddy), and her penchant for movie star seductions (Warren Beatty, Paul Newman, William Holden).

Also detailed are her famous feuds with Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, and Maria Callas; her almost unknown love affairs with Spain’s greatest matador and with Peter Lawford; her night in Georgetown coping with LBJ’s aborted seduction; her friend Rudolf Nureyev’s pursuit of both her and Bobby; her interchanges with Lem Billings, JFK’s homosexual “First Friend” whom Bobby defined as “Jack’s other wife”); her blood feud with Christina Onassis; her sibling rivalry with Lee Radziwill; her illicit affair with a senator nicknamed “Gorgeous George; her love-hate relationship with Frank Sinatra; and her Italian fling with Fiat’s kingpin, Gianni Agnelli, who taught her all about La Dolce Vita during the summer of 1962.

Conceived in direct and sometimes defiant contrast to the avalanche of more breathlessly respectful testimonials to the life and legacy of “America’s Queen,” this book is the latest installment in Blood Moon’s endlessly irreverent BABYLON series.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Ein fader Aufguss 7. Juli 2014
Von Claus Dreckmann TOP 1000 REZENSENT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Vielleicht habe ich bereits zuviel über Jacky O. & Co. gelesen. Aber diese Sammlung an "neuen Enthüllungen" ist mau. Im Prinzip hat man das alles schon zigfach gehört, gelesen oder im TV gesehen. Daher: Keine Empfehlung.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intimate look at a fascinating woman 3. Juni 2014
Von Robin Landry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I've always been an admirer of the great style that Jacqueline always had and the class she brought to the White House as First Lady. After reading this book, I know think that she deserved and Oscar for her wonderful performance. "A Life Beyond Her Wildest Dreams" is an amazingly candid look at how the wealthy live, and I don't envy them one bit.

Jacqueline grew up with a bitter, domineering, money-hungry mother, and philandering, alcoholic father, and both parents were abusive to Jackie in their own way. How Jackie managed to rise above both them and make something of herself is amazing. Sure she might have looked for love in all the wrong places. She married for money, and she paid for it many times over, but through it all she was a role model for our country when we needed one, and she's still my favorite first lady.

The hypocrisy of the upper class is truly stunning. To think that these are the sort of people that we look up to is sad. It's almost as if they feel that they are above the rules that we all have to live by. I'd recommend this book for no other reason than to see that living a middle class life, putting family first, is far better than being rich and famous(and don't even get me started on the reality queens).

The writing in this book is compelling, and though the book is long and detail, I couldn't put it down. The only flaw I found was that sometimes an event would be repeated(I think because of the dual authorship), and the timeline jumped around somewhat.

Jackie lived large in a world where the stakes were high. I didn't look at her life as immoral, it struck me that that Jackie was just trying to survive, using the skills she was born with to great success. This book made me wonder if Jack Kennedy would have even been elected without marrying her, which is probably why his father Joe, was so anxious for them to marry. Also, Jack had a few male, lifelong, homosexual friends, and was rumored to one himself. Had he not married, those rumors might have eliminated any political career he might have had.

Also, Jackie made JFK look like the perfect husband, which he certainly wasn't, and the perfect father, which he might have been. Jackie's great gift was lifting up her husband's image, and giving other women a role model of how to act with class, and especially dignity in times of great loss.

A great beach read, though you might get sun-burned reading it because you'll be so engrossed, you'll forget where you are.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Appears to be a compilation of all the worst rumors ever heard about the Kennedys. 11. Juni 2014
Von Barbara L. Price - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Reads like a tabloid. Repetitive. I stopped reading half way through as it seemed to be a compilation of information already printed by other sources. In addition, conversations were quoted that no one, other than the 2 people present would have known. I would not recommend it.

2.0 von 5 Sternen So disappointed....... 5. Juni 2014
Von lizfromcv - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
and I haven't even read past the first chapter. It states that Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' mother Mrs. Auchincloss was divorced from her second husband Mr. Auchincloss, which is not true. Mrs. Auchincloss divorced her first husband, Jack Bouvier, then married Mr. Auchincloss and several years after Mr. Auchincloss died, she married Bingham Morris; they separated but never divorced.

With such a glaring inaccuracy so early on, it makes me wonder how many other "facts" printed in this book are incorrect.

I was hoping this book was something more than a hodge-podge of headlines pulled from "National Enquirer" esq. tabloids, but now I'm starting to wonder.

A disappointed reader who spent $13.00 on this e-book. What a waste.

1.0 von 5 Sternen absolute junk 16. Juni 2014
Von Jane B. Wypiszynski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is worse than a tabloid....it has made up quotations, claims to have excerpts from Jackie's diaries (non-existent though they are), mines the deepest underbelly of behaviors and is just a horrible, awful piece of junk.

Not worth the money.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Total gossip rag 6. August 2014
Von Diana G. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Gets tediously gossipy... have not been able to finish it. Becomes a total gossip rag...based on imagined events the author surmises MIGHT have happened. Wish I had not spent my money on it!
