I have been a fan of Alanna Nash's books covering Elvis Presley for several years. I have read many Elvis novels, and her work is always expertly researched and honest yet gentle with this family that so many of us around the world know and love. This is the first of her novel's that has made it to the audible audiobook library in recent years, and it is AWESOME. Alanna gives a wonderful introduction and her narrator - Gibson Frazier is fabulous. He performs the voices of the characters with an authenticity that pulled me right into the reading of this book. I listened to it over a 48 hour time frame because it was so well done. Indeed, I found myself wondering what Gibson would do if he were to narrate the Memphis Mafia text that Alanna wrote... (no pressure Alanna).
Having lived in the world of Elvis fandom all of my 40 years that I have been alive, I know I can issue all kinds of judgements and statements about what I think went on between Elvis, the Colonel, EPE, Priscilla, etc. and have 10 people come at me with facts and figures that will make me want to delete this very review. Indeed, it is amazing how many Elvis experts there are today with the rise of social media and the ability to google every topic our little hearts want to know more about. That being said, this text was originally published in the early 2000's after Alanna had put at least six years of research into it. So if I am going to go with an authentic Elvis expert who I KNOW walked where Elvis walked - I will go with Alanna Nash each and every time.
Bravo Alanna! Thank you for getting this to audible for us, and I can't wait for the next one to make its way here!
