This was the first in Bill O'Reilly's "Killing" Series that I've read. It was a very eye-opening revelation of these three entertainers and icons. I knew some about each of these figures, but the author shares inside information on each of these individuals that most probably were not aware of. Two of the three (Presley and Lennon) of course died early in life and Ali suffered through Parkinson's disease a good part of his life. O'Reilly shares with his readership what haunted all three of these men- they all had great fame and they all allowed others to control them and their lives which led to very troubling ends for each one. Highly recommend.

I am not rating this book because it is quite odd. The first half tells about the vents of Salem, MA between 1620 and 1692 when several people were burned at the stake and others financially ruined. This was a period of mass hysteria. Some way or another, a few teenage girls managed to put on silly shows that, with the aid of two or three clergymen, turned into so-called witch trials. Even at this late date, it is not possible whether the girls were headstrong or if there truly was demonic possession. The book then goes into connecting some peculiar events elsewhere until we get to the case of the young man who truly seems to have been possessed in the early 1920s which Hollywood turned into the movie The Exorcist with the possessed person changed to a girl.

A nagging thought is why were the girls allowed to persist in their antics. Surely some must have thought their antics were off the grid.

That there are bad spirits about is a long-held belief, dating back to the story of Creation. All things considered, one would be wont to dismiss evil as a force.

Seemed more 'scattered' than the other Killing books. Less on Patton and more about what was going on throughout other areas of the war.

This is too broad a topic for a book of 300 pages. A writer could fill that many pages with the story of Crazy Horse alone. Going by the title, that’s what I thought I’d be getting here. What I got was a synopsis of the Indian wars of the 19th century. That’s my fault. I didn’t pay any attention to the full title, “Killing Crazy Horse: The Merciless Indian Wars in America”. But, although it wasn’t what I expected, it was a good read, as I’ve found all of O’Reilly’s and Dugard’s books to be. Taken as a primer for that subject, it is very well done. If you want an introduction, I do recommend it. I don’t dispute the authors’ scholarship, but it would have been nice to have seen a list of notes. All they provide is a short bibliography. Perhaps I’m from the old school where if you’re writing history, you document. Still, it’s a good overview of the stealing of land from a people, and the resulting wars.… (més)
