Book Review – Elvis and Me

The book Elvis & Me has been written by Elvis Presley’s ex wife Priscilla Beaulieu Presley. This book is actually the story of this famous couple of the time. The book portrays on various shades of Elvis’s life and character. I recently read this book. Here is the book review of the ‘Elvis and Me’.

Elvis and Me BookThe book revolves around the time when Priscilla met Elvis for the first time when she was 14, how they fell in love with each other, their marriage, the time after their marriage, the love & fights they had and eventually their divorce. Priscilla Beaulieu has narrated the entire story from her point of view. The core of the book portrays the feeling how a person loves another person unselfishly, even adapting him with his flaws. The book has been written beautifully since you can easily grow up page by page with Priscilla and her inner feelings of joy, sadness and finally her wretchedness.

I really like the book but at some portions (may be being a hardcore Elvis fan) the book does not justify (at least not me). The happy part of the book seems like a fairytale but the sad part and especially the deep sore feelings of rejection by Priscilla just made me shiver. But still a must read for all Elvis fans and those who are not Elvis fans (what are doing here?) go through it to have a keen look to the fact how one person can be selflessly in love with another. View the book at Amazon.
