    What would have made Elvis Takes a Back Seat better?

    To have it stated in the description that it was religious fiction instead of something that sounded like a humorous book about a zany trip to Memphis to return a stolen bust of Elvis.


    What was most disappointing about Leanna Ellis’s story?

    That the first 2/3 of the book is regular fiction - the last half you get preached to.


    Have you listened to any of Pam Turlow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator was good. I would listen to other books she narrates.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The first 2/3 was pretty funny and interesting. It was very predictable. I knew the teenage girls problem really quickly and the truth about Claudia's parentage. But it was still seemed worth the listen until I got to the last 3 hours or so.
