Maybe the author, NEVER the reader.
I found him to sound impatient, pretentious, and bored. He seemed to almost be sighing at the end of a lot of the sentences.
This book is heavy on the details - reading the researched minutia might have been a little bit overwhelming. The performance of the reader, combined with an incredible biography, made me listen to this book non-stop. It was incredible.
All of it was wonderful, but the reader clearly understood where to put the emphasis and inflection. He was wonderful. I loved hearing him pretend to cheer like a teenage girl! The ending was heartbreaking, and he used the power of his dramatic pause very effectively.
His portrayal of Elvis was wonderful - capturing the slight drawl and accent without going overboard was wonderful.
As previously stated, when Elvis' mother passed away. It was heartbreaking. I was weeding in the garden and started to cry. Ha!
