And then, there are many that are recreated to secure Priscilla's place in the Elvis legacy as the grieving widow ( of which she is not.
Charles L. Taylor
How do we know that--there are just too many writers and books about Elvis that contradict what she says--people who were there and saw things as they happened.
memphis fan
The book is very well written, and in detail tells Prisilla's story as it was,, I really enjoyed it,, I believe and tell everyone who is an Elvis fan??

I'm no "Elvis-Priscilla" expert, but I think some people aren't cognizant of something: In 1981, "Elvis", a bio of Presley written by Albert Goldman, was released. I've read the book, and its sequel and, say what we will, Goldman was a briliant writer, but he totally despised Elvis, and boy- did it show! ANYway, Priscilla also read the book, and was deeply upset. If you've not read it, it calls Elvis a child molester, a pervert, a junkie, a coward, a racist, a lousy husband,father, and singer, basically, a terrible human being. Priscilla said, "I just CAN'T let this be a book my daughter reads about her father." So, "Elvis and Me" was a REACTION to Goldman's acid account. Did Priscilla gloss over her own misconduct? I don't think so- because she even admits to an affair that no one, including Elvis, knew about, with her dance instructor, Steve Peck. As for Mike Stone, the karate instructor, EVERYone knew about that one, again, including Elvis- and no one, not even the "Memphis Mafia" confronted her about it. In fact, they ALL, even Priscilla's detractors within the group, say that they did not blame her for cheating on Elvis, a few of them even covering for her whenever her husband couldn't find her. That should tell us something, if nothing else will.
One of the people who reviewed this tome was outraged that Priscilla wrote about her indecision regarding giving birth to Lisa Marie- please don't get me wrong- I am pro-life, totally against abortion, so, it bothered me,too. But you have to look at Priscilla's mind-set at the time. Elvis forbade her to use any form of birth control, and Lisa Marie was conceived on their wedding night.

Would it have been better if Priscilla had written only good things about Elvis and nothing more? Sure Ms Cilla probably glosses over her own faults but I didn't feel she was bashing Elvis with some of the painful things that she described. For people saying that she knew what she was getting into are they forgetting how young Priscilla was at the time and even Elvis himself? Love is never easy especially when you're not mature enough to handle the kind from someone who already belongs to the world. Elvis belonged to the world and this would never allow him to be a normal man who could live a normal life with any woman. It couldn't have been easy and falling for Elvis would not have been hard for too many women or girls for that matter so why is it so hard to believe that this girl wouldn't have fallen hard? Critics of this book are only looking at the reasons why she left or the affairs she left out and all that but she does describe a loving side of Elvis and I felt his frustration and loneliness not evil. I love Elvis but we can't blind ourselves to the man's faults for he was human and we all have a dark side to our personalities. I don't feel this book tainted Elvis if anything it humanized him more. But living with the drugs his party type lifestyle, his own infidelities (im not justyfing hers i mean two wrongs dont make a right) being away for months on tours, then no longer making love after their daughter was born, no marriage was going to survive this. She was right to say what she did on how they were living separate lives. Nope a marriage will never survive this but there was no one to blame but circumstance.

As a child who grew up thinking Elvis was the best thing in pants, this movie made me feel very disappointed. I felt as though Priscilla exploited Elvis and made him look terrible. I am in no way disputing what went on in their household as noone knows that better than Priscilla, and yet I couldnt help feeling like she didnt need to make him look like such a monster, while she came away looking like the virgin Mary. Noone can say what her marriage was truly like, except herself and yet I find myself a little resentful that she basically blamed her infidelity on Elvis as if that made it all ok. Dont get me wrong, I watch this movie every time it is on tv, but, I watch it because I love Elvis, not truly because I want to feel sorry for a woman who has made millions off of a dead man who to this day is still putting out albums although he has been dead for 26 years. I will watch this movie over and over again if for nothing else than it is about Elvis and I love to learn more and more about him, but, I dont think that Priscilla was truly the complete victim that she made herself out to be, especially after reading the kind of person she was after she left Elvis. Why doesnt she write a book about that?

I started this book and I have to admitt, I read it in one day....It was very intersting however I don't think it was very factual....If you get this book be sure and get "Child Bride" as well, and compare....It is entertaining that's for sure! I love Elvis Presley...My mom was at his concert when she started having contractions with me...He is a heart throb and a very intersting man. This book I am sure has some truth to the legend, Elvis Presley's life and the things that went on during his time here, but lil Mrs. Priscilla is not as innocent as she tries to say in her book...Just look at her past reviews, the "seductive" pictures she has posed oh so many times in...She is a good story teller though. She tells it like she is a victim. You will see reading this book that in her own words she was very into Elvis, and VERY controlling and jealous....I say read this book...but get "Child Bride" as well...
