The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters Reviews

    Oct 04, 2018

    I?ve never been enormously fascinated by the Kennedys but as an American of a certain age, it is impossible not know more than you need to know about their triumphs and tragedies. However, I didn?t know much about Lee Radziwill so I thought I would give this a try. As the title sta...

    I originally read this in July, then lost my first review when I went to post it. So this is just what I could remember. I found this to be very much to my liking for the most part, as I?ve always enjoyed reading about Jackie and wanted to know more about her family and her sister Le...

    This is a very readable, but not compelling, biography of Jackie Kennedy and her sister Lee Radziwell. It is hardly the author's fault that I found these women less than admirable, but in some ways I was sorry that I read enough about them to dislike both women. Their competitivenes...

    I received an uncorrected proof copy of this book from HarperCollins. This biography hones in on the relationship between Jackie Bouvier Kennedy and her lesser known sister Lee Bouvier. Raised to expect men to bankroll their expensive lifestyle, both women were known for their cult...

    This book is far more sympathetic to Lee than some of the other Bouvier/Kennedy books I?ve read. ...

    Being a teenager growing up in the Kennedy's presidential era, I was in awe of the Bouvier Sisters. The theory of Camelot was magical; but the reality was not all as it seemed. Jackie and Lee were human, warts and all. My education of their social society without the Internet was limit...

    I received a copy of this book by Harper Collins in exchange for an honest review. Today's post is on The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters: The Tragic and Glamorous Loves of Jackie and Lee by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger. It is 336 pages long and is published by Harper Collins. The co...

    "The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters" is a popular biography of Jackie Kennedy Onassis and her younger sister, Lee Radziwill. What's good about it is that the book does give life to a character mentioned, but not typically discussed, in all of the Kennedy biographies--Lee Bouvier. In addition...

    I really enjoyed this book. I always thought the Camelot myth was too good to be truth. This book really reduces the two sisters,their high society families,the Kennedys to " real flesh and blood people". Insecurity,bred to marry money and have high expectations and the incredible snob...

    The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters is a lovely biography of Jackie and Lee. Both women were known for their cultured and European sense of style in both fashion and design, their grace and beauty, and their captivating personalities. A story about two sisters who were close and always ther...

    I usually read everything Kennedy. I have always had great respect for Jackie - her poise, being a great mother. This book looks to a different part of Jackie's life as a Bouvier being a sister - Lee. When I read Jackie, Janet and Lee I realized that Janet raised her children with a l...

    Another great read. I could read anything about the Bouvier sisters (and pretty much do) and just zipped through this because I couldn't put it down. I even missed my bus yesterday morning because I forgot to look up in time and it pulled out of the stop during one of Lee's many crises...

    The title of this biography almost could have been, "The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters and why Lee really was the more interesting, talented, and cultured of the two". It truly did feel like this was the point the authors were trying hard to make in this (mostly) dual biography. I didn't mi...

    The rendering of these 2 essentially shallow and spoiled sisters is neither good nor bad - it tells the story. it is hard to come away with much admiration for the sisters who life revolved around the pursuit of money and beauty - to the extent that at a White House dinner Jackie instr...

    Since I lived through the sixties, I knew a great deal about Jackie and a bit about Lee, before reading this book, but learned so much more by reading it. Kashner has thoroughly research the lives of the two sisters and relates their stories in compelling detail. I certainly recommend ...

    ** I received an advance copy from the publishers**. I?m fascinated with the Kennedys and this account was well researched enough to form what I would believe to be accurate reflections of these women without feeling gossipy or assuming. Some parts dragged in the beginning, but soon ...

    3.25. After reading this book, I am saddened to think "fabulous" describes the external aesthetics of these women but not much else ...

    Not a very flattering portrait I?m afraid - but scandalous and juicy! ...

    Interesting account of the sisters? lives. Not much new, but more gossipy. Good photos. ...

    Enjoyed reading the story. ...

    I will never think of Jackie O the same again. ...

    I found this book very boring. I only finished it because I hate to leave any book unfinished regardless of my opinion. ...

    Listened to audiobook. If you are a fan of the Kennedy era, or 20th century American history, or the lives of the rich and famous, you'll like this book. ...

    3.5 ...

    Surprisingly entertaining. ...

    I?ve never been enormously fascinated by the Kennedys but as an American of a certain age, it is impossible not know more than you need to know about their triumphs and tragedies. However, I didn?t know much about Lee Radziwill so I thought I would give this a try. As the title sta...

    I originally read this in July, then lost my first review when I went to post it. So this is just what I could remember. I found this to be very much to my liking for the most part, as I?ve always enjoyed reading about Jackie and wanted to know more about her family and her sister Le...

    This is a very readable, but not compelling, biography of Jackie Kennedy and her sister Lee Radziwell. It is hardly the author's fault that I found these women less than admirable, but in some ways I was sorry that I read enough about them to dislike both women. Their competitivenes...

    This book is far more sympathetic to Lee than some of the other Bouvier/Kennedy books I?ve read. ...

    Being a teenager growing up in the Kennedy's presidential era, I was in awe of the Bouvier Sisters. The theory of Camelot was magical; but the reality was not all as it seemed. Jackie and Lee were human, warts and all. My education of their social society without the Internet was limit...

    I received a copy of this book by Harper Collins in exchange for an honest review. Today's post is on The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters: The Tragic and Glamorous Loves of Jackie and Lee by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger. It is 336 pages long and is published by Harper Collins. The co...

    "The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters" is a popular biography of Jackie Kennedy Onassis and her younger sister, Lee Radziwill. What's good about it is that the book does give life to a character mentioned, but not typically discussed, in all of the Kennedy biographies--Lee Bouvier. In addition...

    The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters is a lovely biography of Jackie and Lee. Both women were known for their cultured and European sense of style in both fashion and design, their grace and beauty, and their captivating personalities. A story about two sisters who were close and always ther...

    I usually read everything Kennedy. I have always had great respect for Jackie - her poise, being a great mother. This book looks to a different part of Jackie's life as a Bouvier being a sister - Lee. When I read Jackie, Janet and Lee I realized that Janet raised her children with a l...

    Another great read. I could read anything about the Bouvier sisters (and pretty much do) and just zipped through this because I couldn't put it down. I even missed my bus yesterday morning because I forgot to look up in time and it pulled out of the stop during one of Lee's many crises...

    The title of this biography almost could have been, "The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters and why Lee really was the more interesting, talented, and cultured of the two". It truly did feel like this was the point the authors were trying hard to make in this (mostly) dual biography. I didn't mi...

    The rendering of these 2 essentially shallow and spoiled sisters is neither good nor bad - it tells the story. it is hard to come away with much admiration for the sisters who life revolved around the pursuit of money and beauty - to the extent that at a White House dinner Jackie instr...

    "The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters" is a popular biography of Jackie Kennedy Onassis and her younger sister, Lee Radziwill. What's good about it is that the book does give life to a character mentioned, but not typically discussed, in all of the Kennedy biographies--Lee Bouvier. In addition...

    I really enjoyed this book. I always thought the Camelot myth was too good to be truth. This book really reduces the two sisters,their high society families,the Kennedys to " real flesh and blood people". Insecurity,bred to marry money and have high expectations and the incredible snob...

    I?ve never been enormously fascinated by the Kennedys but as an American of a certain age, it is impossible not know more than you need to know about their triumphs and tragedies. However, I didn?t know much about Lee Radziwill so I thought I would give this a try. As the title sta...

    I originally read this in July, then lost my first review when I went to post it. So this is just what I could remember. I found this to be very much to my liking for the most part, as I?ve always enjoyed reading about Jackie and wanted to know more about her family and her sister Le...

    This is a very readable, but not compelling, biography of Jackie Kennedy and her sister Lee Radziwell. It is hardly the author's fault that I found these women less than admirable, but in some ways I was sorry that I read enough about them to dislike both women. Their competitivenes...

    I usually read everything Kennedy. I have always had great respect for Jackie - her poise, being a great mother. This book looks to a different part of Jackie's life as a Bouvier being a sister - Lee. When I read Jackie, Janet and Lee I realized that Janet raised her children with a l...

    Another great read. I could read anything about the Bouvier sisters (and pretty much do) and just zipped through this because I couldn't put it down. I even missed my bus yesterday morning because I forgot to look up in time and it pulled out of the stop during one of Lee's many crises...

    The title of this biography almost could have been, "The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters and why Lee really was the more interesting, talented, and cultured of the two". It truly did feel like this was the point the authors were trying hard to make in this (mostly) dual biography. I didn't mi...

    The rendering of these 2 essentially shallow and spoiled sisters is neither good nor bad - it tells the story. it is hard to come away with much admiration for the sisters who life revolved around the pursuit of money and beauty - to the extent that at a White House dinner Jackie instr...

    I?ve never been enormously fascinated by the Kennedys but as an American of a certain age, it is impossible not know more than you need to know about their triumphs and tragedies. However, I didn?t know much about Lee Radziwill so I thought I would give this a try. As the title sta...

    I originally read this in July, then lost my first review when I went to post it. So this is just what I could remember. I found this to be very much to my liking for the most part, as I?ve always enjoyed reading about Jackie and wanted to know more about her family and her sister Le...

    This is a very readable, but not compelling, biography of Jackie Kennedy and her sister Lee Radziwell. It is hardly the author's fault that I found these women less than admirable, but in some ways I was sorry that I read enough about them to dislike both women. Their competitivenes...

    I received an uncorrected proof copy of this book from HarperCollins. This biography hones in on the relationship between Jackie Bouvier Kennedy and her lesser known sister Lee Bouvier. Raised to expect men to bankroll their expensive lifestyle, both women were known for their cult...

    This book is far more sympathetic to Lee than some of the other Bouvier/Kennedy books I?ve read. ...

    Being a teenager growing up in the Kennedy's presidential era, I was in awe of the Bouvier Sisters. The theory of Camelot was magical; but the reality was not all as it seemed. Jackie and Lee were human, warts and all. My education of their social society without the Internet was limit...

    I received a copy of this book by Harper Collins in exchange for an honest review. Today's post is on The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters: The Tragic and Glamorous Loves of Jackie and Lee by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger. It is 336 pages long and is published by Harper Collins. The co...

    "The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters" is a popular biography of Jackie Kennedy Onassis and her younger sister, Lee Radziwill. What's good about it is that the book does give life to a character mentioned, but not typically discussed, in all of the Kennedy biographies--Lee Bouvier. In addition...

    I really enjoyed this book. I always thought the Camelot myth was too good to be truth. This book really reduces the two sisters,their high society families,the Kennedys to " real flesh and blood people". Insecurity,bred to marry money and have high expectations and the incredible snob...

    The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters is a lovely biography of Jackie and Lee. Both women were known for their cultured and European sense of style in both fashion and design, their grace and beauty, and their captivating personalities. A story about two sisters who were close and always ther...
