Forever Young

Forever Young - William Sylvester Noonan, Robert Huber Already I am disappointed by the book and embarrassed that I will probably keep reading it. I am one of those people who can't look away from a train wreck, which I have a feeling this book is going to be. The real friends are the ones who don't tell their story and the author is already coming off sounding arrogant and self-serving all the while trying desperately to get across that he's not.

Finished. The only good thing about this book is that it was under 300 pages. For some reason lately I have this need to finish any book I start regardless of how bad it is. Groans. My initial reaction to the author of being arrogant and self-serving held true throughout the book. We don't learn anything new about JKF Jr. The excuse of the author for writing it was to set the record straight. Not quite sure what records he was trying to set straight. All I read was bragging about how close he was to JFK Jr. The book was filled with hypocrisy too... how he looked down on people "tourists" who were curious about the Kennedy's yet who does he think is going to buy his book? Thankfully this was a library book and nothing I actually spent money on. Also how he lambasted another of JKF Jr.'s friends for talking to the press yet HE writes a book and the most funny is how he, a grown man, threw apples at reporters outside the Kennedy compound where they gathered while JFK Jr.'s plane was missing but actually found out that the bodies of John and Carolyn were recovered from news reporters.

It's not even worth going into the horrid way he treated his mother over Caroline Kennedy's wedding... my advice, don't even start this book.
