Thirteen Days by Robert F. Kennedy


Here’s another school book. This is what happens when you’re an English major and History minor. It’s incredibly short, so it didn’t take that long to read, which is a huge plus.

Rating: [2/5]

Reading Challenge: A book with a number in the title

Summary: This book is a short memoir written by Robert F. Kennedy about the Cuban Missile Crisis. In it, he discusses the Crisis day by day and shares his thoughts on the Soviet Union, the Cold War, and JFK.

Likes: Admittedly, I don’t know very much about the Cuban Missile Crisis, so it was interesting to learn more about it. I also enjoyed how short and concise it was.

Dislikes: I’m not going to lie, it was pretty boring. Plus, it biased. I mean, it was written by JFK’s brother. Not exactly an impartial observer.

TL;DR: I would really only read this book if you’re a huge Cold War history buff.
