Killing Reagan – Book Review

From bestselling authors Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, who brought us “Killing Lincoln”, “Killing Kennedy”, “Killing Jesus” and “Killing Patton”, comes a new addition in the “Killing” series. Killing Reagan is an fast-paced, sensational account of Ronald Reagan. It details his rise to power and the many hurdles he faced from his adversaries who were determined to bring him down.

Barely two months into his presidency, Ronald Regan found himself in an undesirable predicament. With a bullet in his chest. A deranged gunman had fired six shots outside the Washington Hilton Hotel and one bullet had somehow ricocheted off the limousine and landed in his chest, missing his heart by inches. In Killing Reagan, O’Reilly and Dugard present us with the backstory of President Ronald Reagan, including, his family, entourage and the the famous assassination which he miraculously survived.

In this brilliant account on Reagan, readers will learn a lot about the man behind the prestigious title. We see Reagan as a human being, just the same as everyone out there. Many people assume that after Reagan survived the assassination attempt, he returned to normal, but that wasn’t the case. The incident affected Reagan greatly, physically and mentally. Something which O’Reilly and Dugard have wonderfully captured.

The best thing about Killing Reagen is that it’s told in a similar fashion as the previous books in the “Killing” series and fans will very easily be able to adapt to the writing style. The book is around 300 pages in length, but is deeply satisfying.

Killing Reagan is a wonderful addition to the “Killing” series and fans of Reagan will be pleased with the amount of historical information present in the book. Highly recommended to fans of the Killing series or President Ronald Reagan. This page-turning and commendable account on Reagan will not disappoint.
