    One thought on “Elvis”

    1. 'Elvis' by Philippe Chanoinat with illustrations by Fabrice Le Henanff is a graphic novel biography of the King, but it's a kind of tedious look at a life.The book has lots of pictures that look like colorized black and white photos, but are actually based on pretty good drawings. The text is a recitation of facts. We find out where Elvis was born and when he recorded his first single. From there, the book tells us year by year the albums and films that came out. Large events are covered like hi [...]

    2. I opened this book not realizing it was a graphic novel. It was a NetGalley ARC, and as an Elvis fan, it drew my attention and I requested it without reading the description. While not a fan of graphic novels in general, this one was interesting. I enjoyed looking at the drawings and reading the captions. The information presented was interesting.

    3. Les illustrations au crayon sont belles et bien exécutées. J’ai bien aimé la prntation des autres musiciens importants de l’époque. Par contre, l’histoire est assez terne. C’est seulement une énumération des films et des albums d’Elvis. On n’y parle pas des ratées, des dépressions, de la qualité des films et des dépendances du King.C’est un peu lire Wikipédia en image.

    4. learned a boat load of new facts about Elvis that I never knew. The book goes from when Elvis was a young kid to his prime and gives a lot of facts about what he did and how he did it. I picked this book up at first just for something to read and ended up liking it more than I would have thought.
