        I really appreciated how Hill portrayed Jackie.  I read another book about her that portrayed her as kind of weak and her marriage as weak.
        I think Hill portrays her as quite strong- an excellent ambassador of goodwill worldwide, knowledgeable about history, culture, art. Also, unlike so much of what is written, he views the Kennedy marriage as positive and strong.   The Crown portrayed Jackie as very weak. Hill describes Jackie’s meeting with the Queen as warm and positive.    What did you think?

          I agree that this was a much more favorable portrayal. I just read Jacqueline in Paris and found her simpering and dumb and we know she wasn’t dumb!
