Product Description

Product Description

The King and I tells the story of Harry Mount's fixation with Elvis over 35 years; how it changed from mild interest as a child, via self-mocking adolescent fandom to full-blown obsession at university, before settling into relatively sane reverence today.
What happens to our teenage obsessions when we grow up? How do they help - or harm - us? In this moving, funny memoir, Harry Mount reveals how Elvis released him from the bookish shyness of his sheltered childhood, and provided a magical escape route from his conventional, cloistered public school background.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing not worth finishing. 27 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If it wasn't an E book I would get more satisfaction from this book by burning it. I didn't finish it as his reminisces were disjointed and made an icon like Elvis seem boring. Criminal.

Not worth finishing. A cheap book bought in haste but thrown away at leisure. So many many better books available!

2.0 out of 5 stars For Elvis fans only. 8 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was rather boarded reading this book. Cannot really recommend it. But if you're an Elvis fan perhaps you might enjoy reading it. I bought it because the price was cheap.

3.0 out of 5 stars A quick short read but not enough about Elvis 11 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A quick short read but not enough about Elvis himself. I expect the author wanted to put on paper how Elvis shaped his life so he is probably happy with this book, somewhat self indulgent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but! 13 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Did this read enrich my knowledge of the world? Did it inform or entertain? A bit of each but it still left me with the question "why?"
