Is wallet or failing to make a hotel reservation or what not then using help from his mummy or some a hotel reservation or what not then using help from his mummy or some aide or his own bluster or money to achieve what he wanted anywayYes John wasn t good at remembering the keys but he sure was a loyal friend And so on x 500 Between 35 4 starsI stumbled upon this book when trying to find an audio book from library that I could immediately check out while I waited for my other holds to become available I d never really had much interest in the Kennedys but now I understand why there is so much fascination with them And now I just want to keep reading about them This particular book was interesting I hope that its an accurate portrayal of their actual friendship although I uestion how the author can remember conversations so vividly so many years later But the tale of friendship and the ups and downs that long term friendships go through was compelling Entirely disappointing It s hard to see the author as anything than a self agrrandizing sycophant who manages to get in digs about very single person in JFK Jr s life I really wanted to like this book and the two stars are simply for subject matter but I feel like I need a shower after reading This book is full of bitterness and snobbery and it doesn t seem like the author Grand Illusion: The Third Reich, the Paris Exposition, and the Cultural Seduction of France even liked his best friend all that much I am skeptical that they were really that close and his detailed conversations with Carolyn are simply not believable At one point he recounts anpisode where he blew up at John for some small slight telling him You made me yell at my wife and when John protests follows it up with Don t try to shirk responsibility The author is wholly unlikeable and what a disservice to John and Carolyn that this book was ven written I hope they had better and honorable friends

in their short 
their short I thought it was unnecessary for writer to write about how John cheated so many times on girlfriend Christina Haag and acting like he did not care about it That is how the writer came across in this bookHurtful and unnecessary I read Christina s book Come to the Edge and it was a beautiful and sad book about their love story Highly recommend it I also Robert Littrell s book The Men We Became and it was a great book He was careful about writing about John s challenge with being faithful to his arlier relationshipsI would imagine John would prefer it to be not written about in such detail in Forever Young book Imagine Christina knows the truth about their struggles in their relationship which she talked about in her bookJohn will certainly be missed as well as his wife and sister in law So sad about the accident Life just isn t fair at times Pluta this ones for you I am in a Kennedy phase interested in them as people rather than the lies so many books have toldThis book is great I have a bit to go The author Billy Noonan is a a childhood friend of JFK Jr The TRUTH about his death is revealed as opposed to the myth that so many professional Kennedy biographers claim Noonan allows you to take a closer look at the life of a young boy as he grows into an adult Book also touches on Jackie Caroline the Shrivers and other cousins family members. Er Jackie and the heartbreaking aftermath of the plane crash off Marthas Vineyard that killed John Carolyn and Carolyns sister Noonan also shares the ribald pisodes including Johns many famous conuests skirmishes with paparazzi and his stint as Peoples Sexiest Man Alive The definitive story of the son of Camelot Forever Young is a touching and revelatory tribute to a friendship between two menand a life cut devastatingly short. ,

What would it be like to be the good friend of a super famous American Interesting topic but jeesh Bill Noonan is way to impressed with his relationship and his insider point of view that he answers the uestion by basically being that boring guy that goes on and on about how perfect a friend he was and professes to know the true feelings of JFK Jr This might have been a better written book had it been penned by a third person So many of the people in the book are dead one hopes that his reflections are accurate but who is to know Already I am disappointed by the book and mbarrassed 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 book is that 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 Hard Bread (Phoenix Poets excuse of the author for writing it was to set the record straight Not uite 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 notven worth going into the horrid way he treated his mother over Caroline Kennedy s wedding my advice don t ven start this book It s one of my favorite books and I also recommend a similar title written by another close friend to John JR Robert Little called the men we became Reading both of the books will give you a sort of bio of john s life from than just one perspective in Addition To That I Read RFK JR By Jeffery Oppenhemier to that I read RFK JR by Jeffery Oppenhemier want to move on to many other books on the kennedys such as Ted s auto bio True Compassits all very interesting stuff this book by Billy noonan was great to read I learned many things I didn t know such as about John s friendship with his cousin Anthony who had a polish background like myself which I found interesting as well as the fact that he was John Jrs best man at his weddingthere are difficulties and hardships talked about in the book that many people would not necesarily know about so it gives you a different type of appreciation for peoples lives involved and gives you a chance to really reflect on your own life My most notable uotesJohn was lively and assuredly real He could not sit still He smoke. A uniuely intimate portrait of John F Kennedy Jr from his closest friend For twenty five years William Noonan and John F Kennedy Jr were best friends Sharing an adolescence in Hyannisport Massachusetts the two freuented beach bonfires and the Monday night yacht club dances took road trips shared albums sneaked cigarettes on the widows walk of Johns house and scored beer together And as they grew older John and Billy never lost. .
