内容紹介

She was America's sweetheart; the embodiment of grace, elegance, style, charm, and-as the world discovered in late 1963-bravery. And though much has been written about the most famous woman of the 20th century, no biography has revealed the true Jackie; none has successfully separated the truth from the lies, or portrayed the Queen of Camelot in all her complexity-until now. With access to Jackie's own writings, the archives of the John F. Kennedy Library, and those who knew her best, bestselling celebrity biographer Donald Spoto illuminates Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and the sixty-five years of her life with candor, compassion and compelling detail. Readers will discover:

* The early years: a privileged but lonely childhood that shaped Jackie's resilience and poise, working as a photojournalist for the Washington Times-Herald, and meeting a handsome congressman named Kennedy * Life as the first lady: dealing with Jack's infidelity, adjusting to life in the spotlight, and her influence on the policies of the Kennedy Administration * Mrs. Onassis: life after Jack, marrying the Greek tycoon, her accomplished career as a book editor, her final days, and much more

WITH 16 PAGES OF STRIKING PHOTOGRAPHS

5つ星のうち 5.0 A Serious Account of a Significant Life 2000/2/14
投稿者 Dr. - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
At age 31 Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy became the First Lady and thus the most recognized woman in the world. Three years later, at age 34, she witnessed the bloody murder of her husband on that dreadful day in Dallas. For the next four days this young woman shared her private loss in a very public way, as she "showed the country how to grieve." If she did nothing else with her life Jackie Kennedy would still be remembered as a very remarkable person. But, thanks to Donald Spoto's serious, yet warm and sympathetic biography we have a fuller picture of Jacquelie Bouvier Kennedy-Onassis long before Dallas and for the remaining thirty years of her significant life.
This book is not for those interested in the dirt and dish that so mistakenly is perceived as fact when writing about the Kennedys. There is none of that here. Rather, Spoto approaches his subject with a desire to understand the person by searching for the purpose and meaning she gave to her experiences, as recounted by those who knew her best. He writes in a style that is gaceful and respectful, mirroring his life as a monk, as well as the way Mrs. Kennedy-Onassis tried to live her life.
With all her wealth, opportunity, and experiences, Spoto emphasizes that her greatest accopmlishement in this extraordinary life was simply that she was a devoted and loving mother to her two children. A complex task for us all, made more difficult by having to parent under the constant glare of public curiosity.
Perhaps the most telling passage of the book, one that speaks to the truer character of JBKO, is when she was asked why she never chose to respond to the tabliods, the critics, or myriad of others who fed off her celebrity status. In other words, to just give her side of the story! Her reply was that the dirt and gossip would continue, she could not control that, but she faithfully believed that "they can never steal my soul." Therefore, no explaination, clarification or defense was necessary.
Those who admire Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and seek to explore the depth of her life beyond the myths, you will find this book worth reading. For those looking for something else -- keep searching.

5つ星のうち 3.0 A valentine 2000/2/9
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
This exhaustively researched book is very kind and extremely flattering to JBKO. So much so that is strained credibility. While the writer's approach is refreshing when compared to the hatchet jobs that have appeared over the years (one ludricous book even accuses Jackie of being an accomplice to JFK's murder!), it lacks the objectivity that a good biographer would bring to his subject. Still, I enjoyed the time I spent reading about this gallant lady.

5つ星のうち 2.0 Okay for a rainy day read 2000/2/4
投稿者 Anita Shannon - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
There wasn't a whole lot of real news in this book, but it's always nice to read about Jackie Kennedy. This book is a little bit slow going, and dull, but once I got into it I had to keep reading. I only wish the writer had gone into more detail about her relationship with her children and the Kennedy family. It always seemed to me that Jackie tried to shield her children from the influence of the Kennedy men, and I was curious to see if that was true. However, not much detail was given there. All in all, it was no earth-shattering work.

5つ星のうち 1.0 A Dissapointing Bore 2000/2/3
投稿者 Carolyn Detwiler - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
If Jacqueline Kennedy's life was as much of a yawn as this book makes it seem, it didn't deserve to have a book written about it. I have read many past accounts of this fantastic and mysterious woman's life, and this is by far the least intriguing. Spoto treats his subject with the arms-length fawning that the tabloids gave Jackie during her life, and never digs deep enough to engage the reader. It appears that this author was rushing to finish this book, and never stopped to realize that he didn't tell much of a story along the way. The only thing that led me to purchase this book was hearing that Spoto explains that JFK and Marilyn Monroe never had an affair. But this subject is just barely covered, and frankly, the fact that so much evidence exists that the two WERE involved, left me searching for Spoto's explanation as to why there were so many witnesses to this affair that 'never happened'-- but he doesn't explain this. Do yourself a favor, and keep looking, if you're after a good biography of Jackie Kennedy, because this one is just awful.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A great tribute to the life of Jackie Onassis. 2001/10/4
投稿者 Catrina - (Amazon.com)
形式:マスマーケット
I'm a new fan of Jackie Onassis in fact this is the first biography I've read about her. It seemed that the author really cared about his subject and wanted to bring honor to the life that Jackie lived and not to tabloid rumors. If you want a book about Jackie's rumored steamy romances with various men this book is not for you, but if you want a book that focuses on Jackie's many accomplishments than I highly recommend it.
