Pressestimmen

"With clear and honest prose free of salaciousness and gossip, Hill (ably assisted by McCubbin) evokes not only a personality both beautiful and brilliant, but also a time when the White House was filled with youth and promise.

Of the many words written about Jacqueline Kennedy, these are among the best." --Kirkus starred review

"[Mrs. Kennedy and Me] conveys a sense of honesty and proves to be an insightful and lovingly penetrating portrait of the Jacqueline Kennedy that Hill came to know." --USA Today (3 1/2 stars)


"Talk about being unable to put a book down; I was enthralled with this memoir from start to finish." --Liz Smith

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wunderbare Memoiren 24. Juni 2012
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Clint Hill hat fast 50 Jahre gezoegert, seine White House Memoiren zu schreiben (es gibt ein Interview mit ihm und Mike Wallace von 1975 online und ein aktuelles Interview zum erschienenen Buch von 2012) und nachdem ich die 180+ fast ueberwiegend guten Rezensionen in amzon.com gelesen hatte, entschloss ich mich dazu, mir das Buch aus der Bibliothek auszuleihen und ich bin angenehm ueberrascht.

Dies ist nicht der typische Sensationsbericht von irgendwelchen Leuten, die die Kennedys gekannt (oder nicht gekannt) haben. Hill gelang eine respektvolle Beschreibung der 4 Jahre, die er als Secret Service Agent mit dem Schutz Jacqueline Kennedys verbrachte, nachdem er vorher Eisenhowers Administration angehoert hatte.

Spannend zu lesen und sehr menschlich.

Ich schrieb diese Rezension, weil damit zu rechnen ist, dass auch dieses Kennedy-Buch wie so viele andere nicht ins Deutsche uebersetzt wird. Es ist einfach zu lesen, kein schwierig zu verstehendes Englisch und es waere wirklich schade fuer jeden Kennedy Fan, sich um dieses Buch bringen zu lassen, nur weil es (mal wieder) nicht ins Deutsche uebersetzt wird.

Das Buch hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Es beschreibt den Alltag der Frau des Präsidenten. Es sind auch viele interessante Fotos enthalten, die ich vorher noch nicht kannte. Obwohl in englischer Sprache war es für mich leicht zu lesen. Wenn jemand Biographien mag, kann ich dieses Buch nur weiter empfehlen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best books on presidential protection 5. April 2012
Von Fmr. Agent Abraham Bolden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I just finished reading Agent Clint Hill's book, Mrs. Kennedy and Me. As an ex-secret service agent and the first African American Agent to serve on the White House Detail under President Kennedy, I want to congratulate Agent Hill on a very well written and interesting memoir. I served on the detail with Agent Hill in 1961. When the terrible incident happened in Dallas on November 22, 1963 and the reports circulated that one agent had responded by trying to shield the occupants riding in the presidential limousine, I knew immediately that that agent was Clint Hill. The reader should know that, in my opinion, this book is the memoir of one of the most diligent, responsible, trustworthy, dutiful agents ever to serve on the White House Detail. This book is a must read for anyone endeavoring to obtain an insightful agent's view and understanding of the tragic occurrences of November 22, 1963.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beguiled - A Secret Service Agent's Love Story 5. April 2012
Von NJfromLA - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
To my surprise this book is a love story. Not a salacious inappropriate smut filled account, but rather one with stories of growth, fun times, laughter, dedication, respect! A story of sorrow and sadness that is uplifting because of caring and friendship. This book is a warm modern portrait the Mr. and Mrs. John F. Kennedy and their children from someone who was close to them with no axe to grind. Even the sad events are presented with compassion. There's a lot of love in this book.

Secret Service Agent Clint Hill begins his association in late 1960 with the Kennedy administration in a fearful place. Fearful that after a couple of years of what he believed was success on President Eisenhower's detail, he's suddenly removed from the "main action" of protecting the president. Is this a demotion he bemoans? Like any macho Secret Service dude seeking to advance, Mr. Hill naturally dreads moving to the First Ladies detail with its potential daily doses of "fashion shows and the ballet." Yet, both loving his job and having a young family to support, Mr. Hill accepts his fate and reports to 3307 N Street, Georgetown, to meet (be approved by??!!) the young First Lady-elect (she's already rejected one perspective agent!!).

Disappoint quickly turns to beguilement, as Clint Hill is thoroughly charmed and enchanted by this beautiful, fun, witty, intelligent, adventurous, sporty, irreverent and yeah, a bit of a spoiled rich girl (who knows how to get her way). Heck, he even learns to not mind the occasional fashion show (so long as it features the First Lady!), ballet in New York and even personally shopping for ladies apparel in Ravello, Itally!!!! Who woulda thunk it.

No, I've not overdone it on the adjectives and yeah, this isn't your typical "Kennedy" bio. Mr. Hill doesn't criticize or attack, but showers his subject with affection. He and all the agents, because of the nature of their jobs, seemingly abandon their own lives and families in their service to the first family and all who they protect. One can see how the close private contact and the enormous amount of time spent away from the agent's loved ones can lead to feelings that are deeper and more personal towards the subject of their protection.

Mr. Hill (and she's "Mrs. Kennedy - she adheres to proper address at all times) not only loves the First Lady, but he also very much cares for her husband and their children too. He just plain loves the Kennedy first family period - and says that despite what's been written, they were a loving and playful family. He even is amused by the extended Kennedy clan and their friends!!

Mr. Hill doesn't portend to sell more books by detailing alleged unsavory dalliances and missteps. You will find no recollections or opinions about the first couple's sex life (apart from a remembrance about some suggestive art that the First Lady picks up in India...humorous not amorous). While Mr. Hill does mention a certain controversial birthday featuring a drunken female movie star and her singing, and he does hint at a certain rat pack crooners' rather inappropriate interest in Mrs. Kennedy's personal activities (this was new to me - and I've read at least 50 bios on the K's), Mr. Hill doesn't go further than what he truly knows to be true - which is that Mrs. Kennedy never shared her feelings about either.

I felt his writing in this way showed not only respect for his subjects, but a certain truth missing in most other biographies that serve rumor as fact, and seem to relish ripping their subjects apart. Well, there's no ripping here.

If one reads between the lines, here is a portrait of a woman who undoubtedly loves her place in life with her powerful, public servant, handsome husband (whatever his warts), and yet thrives on the one thing that is the antithesis of his job (and perhaps his entire being) - privacy. A lady who is tough and yet wears her vulnerabilities in "her espresso-colored eyes." A lady who claims to dislike the "fish bowl" existence inherent in the White House, yet secretly enjoys reading the gossip magazines featuring herself.

Topics that Mr. Hill offers an accounting:

Why Mrs. Kennedy spent so much time away from the White House (Mr. Hill says she spent about eight percent of her time AWAY from the White House during one time period in 1961).

Mrs. Kennedy's various vacations and partying amongst the creme de la creme of the European social set without her husband (according to Mr. Hill, usually with her SISTER - and nothing out of line - except for the time she jumps in the sports car of a very, very young Greek Count who engages Mr. Hill and his fellow agents on a high speed chase...but that was about fun - not illicit romance).

Onassis! I didn't know that President Kennedy felt so strongly about Mrs. Kennedy having nothing to do with Onassis as early as her visit to Greece in 1961!!! Mr. Hill felt very uneasy about the Greek tycoon.

Despite the fun and adventures, in the end, this is a story about great pain, loss and sorrow. Also, about one man's journey to learning to forgive himself. This book is a great success for no other reason than its finally allowed Mr. Hill peace of mind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A step back in time 7. April 2012
Von Toyotasue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I was thirteen the year that President Kennedy died. I sobbed as I walked home from school that day. I sobbed as I read this book and there were moments that I felt like I was reliving all of this with Agent Hill. The killing, the motorcade, the funeral ,the warren commission, all of it.

The compassion these men feel for the "First Family" is obvious, the sacrifices they make are phenomenal. Thank you would never be enough to repay them for their service to our country .

This book is indescribable and a must read. There are no words to describe the emotions I felt reading it nor the insight to the personal life of Mrs. Kennedy.

Thank you Agent Hill for sharing your heartfelt memories.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Book! 14. April 2012
Von Sue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a charming book that made me smile and made me weep as well. It was a beautiful book and the only BAD thing about it was that it ended!! I do hope Caroline reads this book. It is delightful. These two had a special friendship and relationship and "Mr. Hill" presents it in a very interesting manner. No one was like her and no one will ever be like her. No one looked like her, talked like her, no one even wrote like her...she was destined for her greatness. I could not put the book down but I rationed my reading time because I wanted it to last and last. Thank you Mr. Hill, for finally sharing a historic chapter of your life with all of us who are old enough to remember when...life was beautiful, people had manners and CLASS! Another era of Americana...gone with the wind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mr. Hill and Mrs. Kennedy 5. April 2012
Von InfoTeach - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I was five years old when President Kennedy was shot, so I never really understood the awe people had towards Jackie Kennedy. Now, I know. Reading "Mrs. Kennedy and Me" has taught me to respect this lovely woman. I cannot put the book down. Clint Hill, called Mr. Hill, by Jackie and the children, shares some wonderful memories. Jackie insisted that the children call him Mr. Hill as a sign of respect and, of course, good manners. This theme is played throughout the book.

Jackie comes across as a shy, warm, loving woman. She had the ability to make others feel comfortable. She also couldn't understand why people were so interested in seeing her. For example, Mr. Hill tried to take her shopping in Palm Beach, but as soon as people recognized her, she felt awkward and ill-at-ease. This happened everywhere she went all over the world. This was a woman who was better at one-on-one conversations. She spoke fluent French, was a fashion icon, an accomplished rider, a devoted mother, and, extremely well read and intelligent. (But, of course, you knew that.)

The 26 chapters are short and almost a little story of their own. Included are black and white photos that add so much to the book.

The inside-the-Secret-Service insight is fascinating. They protected the children and family without cell phones and the Internet. Each of the Kennedy's had a code name that began with the letter "L." Secret Service agents had code names, too. I am amazed at their dedication to their job. Mr. Hill spent many long days away from his wife and children living in hotels and getting little sleep while on duty.

This is not a smut, tell-all book. It is the story of Mrs. Kennedy and Mr. Hill. It is their story and what a wonderful opportunity for us!

As an adult, I, too, am in love with Jackie. What a class act! Read this book.
