Narrator Jonathan Yen's skillful performance of Connolly's biography is both soft and methodical. He evokes the relaxed comfort of Southern life that Elvis left behind when his great talent and drive brought him overnight fame. Yen's delivery captures Elvis's feelings of surprise, turmoil, depression, and ultimate loneliness, drawing listeners into the irony of his success--he was loved by millions, yet never felt loved. As listeners hear accounts of Elvis himself, as well as his family, friends, and business associates, Yen's smooth delivery enhances every moment--from Tupelo to Las Vegas.
