With all this hooplah about Kitty's latest book, Oprah, I decided to read one of the more famous ones first, to see if I liked Kitty & to see why she was so scandalous. Folks....no big deal. This book was really good, very informative about the person (not the image) of Jackie. If you love Jackie, get this book. It's one of the few that I found interesting enough to read quickly. And I didn't think it was nasty at all. I thought it had balance, intrique. etc. A real keeper, thank you Kitty.

Well written 2005/1/4

This book reads much like Gone With the Wind and Jackie Kennedy's character, personality and upbringing is eerily similar to that of Scarlett O'Hara herself. Although the book is dated it is a fascinating and engrossing read. Kelly's an excellent writer and story teller and aside from the speculation about the book's reliability, it is nonetheless, immensely readable. Moreover, there is nothing in this book that is not consistent with facts which have been verified in the years since it was published.

If you are a Kennedy worshiper you will not like this book. It is not flattering to Mrs. Onassis nor should it be. From all accounts Jackie Onassis was a self absorbed, materialistic and psyopathically arrogant bully of a woman. You will not come out of this book liking her. But even under the harsh glare of the truth, Jackie Onasis is fascinating. She was a pivotal figure in this country's history regardless of her shallow, ruthless and self serving ways. You also might come out of this book profoundly resentful of the unconditional genuflecting she enjoyed from American society at large. How someone like this could move through life with absolutely no accountability and with unconditional reverence makes the book even more thought provoking.

Not as good as you may have heard 2004/4/12

When Jackie Oh! came out it shot Kitty Kelley to fame. It was considered vicious trash by the critics but the public ate it up. Reading it almost 30 years later I'm struck with the feeling that the hype was more than the book. There have been allegations that Kelly relied on backstairs gossip and a lot of what's in here can't be proven. Then there is the fact that Jackie was alive when the book was published. Kelly's decision to write about Jackie's treatment for depression (The woman lost a son and a husband within months. Who wouldn't be depressed?) seemed simply cruel for the sport of it.
Reading Jackie Oh is kind of like finding your old high school year book and being embarrased by the clothes, the hobbies and the sentiments written therein. You look at it and are chagrined at how important such sillines seemed at the time.

What a Difference Decades Makes 2012/8/13

When "Jackie Oh!" was published in 1978, the Chicago Tribune reviewed it as "Scandalous...a shock a page!" Three-plus decades later? Not so much. Apparently what was big, scandalous news back then has seeped out in other publications, so that a current reader of the book who's been remotely interested in the Kennedys over the years won't find anything new here.

I didn't read "Jackie Oh!" in 1978 because the critics panned it as trash. Why then did I bother to read this out-of-print book thirty-four years later? Because I suspected that the trash was true after googling Jamie Lee Auchincloss, Jackie's half-brother, to see what his life has been like. My search turned up a comment by "Jackie Oh!" author Kitty Kelley that when she was promoting a subsequent book, Jamie Auchincloss stood up in the audience and blurted that everything he'd told her was true and that now his sister didn't speak to him. So I ordered a used copy of this paperback, and sure enough Jamie Auchincloss is quoted by name giving numerous personal tidbits about Jackie, her sister Lee and the rest of the family. He was in his late twenties when he blabbed indiscriminately to Kelley--old enough to understand how his famous half-sister, known for guarding her privacy and for icing people out of her life who violated that privacy, was going to react. I wonder what motivates a family member to "tell all." Does a vicious-gossip gene exist that Auchincloss and Kelley share?

This book is definitely a Jackie tell-all. For being what I assume is an accurate dish (since Kelley was never sued by Jackie), I have given it four stars. Does having finally read it change how I view Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis? No. If anything, reviewing between the covers of this book Jackie's putting up with JFK's womanizing, her love of luxury and shopping binges, fierce protection of privacy, negotiations with Onassis' estate, etc. makes me understand her more than ever. Considering the parental strife which pervaded her early childhood, the divorce which ripped her young world apart and the subsequent tug-of-war her parents fought over her, being, with Lee, poor outsiders in the wealthy Auchincloss family, etc. certainly makes her adult behavior understandable. Jackie's adult behavior, like all of ours, is a product of childhood experiences--unless and until we examine them, become conscious of our behaviors' genesis, and free ourselves to act differently. After Onassis, she apparently began psychotherapy, as I recall reading long ago Jackie's saying that she no longer wanted to form her identity through a man. And it was at that point in her life that Jackie built an identity as an editor, an editor whose authors both respected her and held her in great affection. That is according to the jacket copy of the 2011 book, "Jackie as Editor...," which is next on my pile of books to read.

Finally, a couple of statements made by Ms. Kelley in "Jackie Oh!" which need to be corrected: Jackie was not, "the youngest first lady in history." That distinction belongs to Dolly Madison, who was twenty-something when she entered the White House, as opposed to Jackie's thirty-one. Janet Lee and Jamie Lee Auchincloss were not Jackie's "step-sister" and "step-brother" as Kitty Kelley repeatedly refers to them. They were Jackie's half-sister and half-brother, as Jackie's biological mother was also their biological mother. Yusha, Tommy and Nina Auchincloss were Jackie's step-brothers and step-sister because they were the children of Jackie's step-father, Hugh D. Auchincloss and biological mothers not her own. When an author makes such obvious blunders, it makes a reader wonder what else she's screwed up.

Slanted for sensationalism 2012/7/18
投稿者 Michelle Oliver - (Amazon.com)
形式: マスマーケット
This book is a fast read and very shallow. After just reading the Taraborrelli account of Camelot (Jackie, Ethel, Joan), this perspective comes off as a much lesser work and written without regard for nuance or context. I did like the fresh interviews and the general journalistic research the author seems to have done but got turned off by the sour flavor that saturates everything. Kelly seems bent on making Jackie look spoiled, remote and really kind of boring. This book doesn't do much in conveying a fair and accurate character portrait. It reads more like a tabloid novella. I give it three stars instead of two for the apparent research but I'm left feeling unsatisfied and annoyed.
