Recensione

"As a history major, I wish my required reading had been as well written as this truly vivid and emotionally engaging account of Lincoln's assassination. And as a former combat infantry officer, I found myself running for cover at the Civil War battle scenes. This is the story of an American tragedy that changed the course of history. If you think you know this story, you don't until you've read "Killing Lincoln". Add historian to Bill O'Reilly's already impressive resume."--Nelson DeMille, author of "The Lion "and" The Gold Coast"

""Killing Lincoln" is a must read historical thriller. Bill O'Reilly recounts the dramatic events of the spring of 1865 with such exhilarating immediacy that you will feel like you are walking the streets of Washington, DC, on the night that John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln. This is a hugely entertaining, heart-stopping read."--Vince Flynn, author of "American Assassin"""

"If Grisham wrote a novel about April 1865...it might well read like "Killing Lincoln"."--Peter J. Boyer, "Newsweek"

"[Killing Lincoln] delivers a taut, action-packed narrative with cliff-hangers aplenty..."--"The Christian Science Monitor""[Killing Lincoln] is nonfiction, albeit told in white-knuckled, John Grisham-like style." --"New York Post
"

Sinossi

A riveting historical narrative of the heart-stopping events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the first work of history from mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly

The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation, with the former Confederates allowed to reintegrate into American society. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices, perhaps reaching into the highest ranks of the U.S. government, are not appeased.

In the midst of the patriotic celebrations in Washington D.C., John Wilkes Booth—charismatic ladies' man and impenitent racist—murders Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre. A furious manhunt ensues and Booth immediately becomes the country's most wanted fugitive. Lafayette C. Baker, a smart but shifty New York detective and former Union spy, unravels the string of clues leading to Booth, while federal forces track his accomplices. The thrilling chase ends in a fiery shootout and a series of court-ordered executions—including that of the first woman ever executed by the U.S. government, Mary Surratt. Featuring some of history's most remarkable figures, vivid detail, and page-turning action, Killing Lincoln is history that reads like a thriller.

3.0 su 5 stelle Pretty good, though not what I expected 10 settembre 2014
Di Nic - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Overall, I did enjoy this book. The historical research is very impressive, especially the day to day accounts of the events. Also, I really enjoyed how the authors did mention some possibilities of conspiracy because we all know that the theories are out there and it's nice to see where they could possibly originate from. However, I did not see what the point was in spending basically the whole first third of the book detailing battles at the end of the war. I see that they were trying to set it up for showing us how a nation was torn apart and Lincoln was under such stress and so on, but it went on a little too long for my tastes. On the other hand, I also felt that from Lincoln's shooting to the end of the book was a little rushed, maybe due to the first half at least, being pretty slow in my opinion. Overall, I would recommend it to someone interested in history, though probably not to a generic reader. I think a lot of this books claim to fame is it's author and publicity. I enjoyed this book on the whole, but was honestly just expecting a little more page-turning excitement.

3.0 su 5 stelle Two Weeks In the Life... 14 agosto 2015
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Taut. Woven carefully with the quilt patches making an enchanting cover. We all know how it ends. It is how it was layed out and sewn together that producted the sad, tale of a life lost too soon. What evil lurks in the minds of men (and Mary Surratt)? I am satisfied to say this is a historical nonfiction thriller. It is not the scholarly research that produced Team of Rivals, etc.

This book becomes a roller coaster after Lincoln's death in the chase that ensued to capture John Wilkes Booth and his band of merrymen. Then O'Reilly goes on to wrap up each participant and major player with epilogues to their lives. If interested in Lincoln I'd suggest pairing this with any of the other books that distinguish the life of this President.

3.0 su 5 stelle . Not Their Best 15 aprile 2015
Di DBK - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I'm about 1/3 of the way thru it and it just has not grabbed me like Killing Patton, did not even close. Ill finish it when I get around to it No hurry. .I dont know why but there is something so depressing about having this great man who could have changed the course of history being shot down by some worthless dog with in a few days of the end of the war that i really dont want to know more about him and I know the outcome. Seeing them all hanging was about the only satisfaction I got out of it. I prefered it just didn't happen at all. .But Historically there is a lot to glean from it as far as the mood of the country socially & politically although i would not put it in the same category as Battle cry of Freedom But its not 900 pages either which I read in about 5 days.. Will see I will finish Ill be back when i do

3.0 su 5 stelle Not as "revealing" as the other O''Reilly books. 26 marzo 2017
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
As all his books, this one is well done. I was surprised, however, that it contains so much about the Civil War and not as much as I expected about Lincoln during that part of the history. I'm glad I had seen the movie a couple of years ago that described how he "handled" the war. Likely because the subject has been dead so long, it's not as full of personal description of him as I expected. The quality is there but it's not his usual style, to which I've become accustomed and treasure.

5.0 su 5 stelle The best part is that reading and analyzing the book together ... 9 marzo 2015
Di Sister C - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Rilegatura all'americana Acquisto verificato
I bought this book for my 9-yr-old daughter who loves history and politics. Since she found the material too difficult for her reading level, we read it together. The short chapters make natural breaks to stop and break it down with her. Did the authors actually plan this? :) The story is gripping and thought-provoking for both of us. The best part is that reading and analyzing the book together has strengthened this mother-daughter bond. Once she learned to read, I thought my days of reading to her were over. Now I realize the huge value of tackling above-grade-level reads with her and the love of learning that it builds. Thank you!
