Nancy never reveals secrets that only the National Enquirer and other tabloids would want to talk about. I like that. I wanted to know what Elvis was like on an everyday basis and she explains that beautifully. She actually tells the story from her heart. It's obvious that she loved Elvis.
His sudden shocking death is explained by her. Then she goes on to explain The deaths one by one of the rest of the family members. Throughout the book Nancy paints vivid pictures of Graceland in all it's Grace with a Loving family named "Presley".
It's nice to find out that Elvis was. A nice guy. Thank you Ms. Rooks for giving us a glimpse into the life of a superstar...
I was also really annoyed by the fact that the book seemed like it wasn't even edited... or if it was, the editor needs a grammar lesson about how 'it's' always means IT IS, and a possessive 'its' does not have an apostrophe. I know that seems pedantic but this is a professionally published book and that's like 5th grade grammar. It was also pretty short - I read the entire book in less than 2 hours.
I started reading this on August 16th, the anniversary of his death.
Right away, I was pulled in and didn't want to stop reading.
Nancy's account of her time that she spent working at Graceland is probably one of the best that I've read and I've read quite a few books on Elvis.
Having been to Graceland once, I could picture exactly what Nancy was referring to when she would talk about certain places at Graceland. Even if I hadn't been before, I still would be able to get a pretty clear picture in my mind because of the way that she describes things in this book.
While I wouldn't even consider this a book, but more of a journal of her time spent working for Elvis and her relationship with him and his family, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this.
It's not very long and I finished it within a day only stopping to sleep for a few hours.
I recommend this book to anyone, whether you're a fan of Elvis or not, and whether you've visited Graceland or not.
