    One thought on “The New Elvis”

    1. A man searches for fame and also the truth about his biological father.I enjoyed the storyline – plenty of “what ifs”, mixed with trauma and death plus a healthy amount of plot twists and turns. The characters (and their responses) were all believable – as was people’s fascination with the central character.If you enjoy ‘what if’ stories then this book is worth a look.

    2. This book starts with the intriguing idea of what if Elvis had made a donation at a sperm bank? What would the resulting off-spring (a boy called Ryan) be like? Would they look like Elvis? Sing like Elvis? Even if you're not a great fan of Elvis - and I am not - I still wanted to know more!The characters in this book are engaging and there are several storylines skillfully entwined including a poignant love story, an up-coming tabloid newspaper and an elective mute. Initially it was hard to keep [...]

I liked the characters and the plot.I found it surprisingly good. Based on the title, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first picked it up. It wasn’t the sort of thing that I would normally read. I didn’t expect that I’d like it. But then I was almost instantly hooked, and realized I was ten perc [...]

    4. Encore!!The New Elvis is filled with twist and turns of suspense, romance, murder, and betrayal. The story could cross several genres. Great imagination and storytelling is Wyborn’s great attributes as a writer. He has the capacity to pull the reader into the story with fictional characters that seem realistic. The story is written so well that it’s sometimes difficult to tell fiction from truth. As the truth began to unfold, I knew I was getting close to Logan revealing his secret and dread [...]

    5. Nice story about a young man's search for his biological father. And about another young man's struggle to fight the demons of his past. Mixed with a love for Elvis Presley and his music, makes an interesting read!from storycartel

    6. Engaging with clever twists: Ryan's adventurous journey in finding out about his real father and how his path comes across with Logan. The story evolves organically, and it is very well structured. We get to see two sides of the story; what Logan has to go through with his family, and how Ryan realizes that his past is different than what he thinks it is.The plot keeps the reader interested by its unexpected turns. Narrating from different angles and points of views, the writer pays great attent [...]

    8. I liked the book. It wasn't one that I had to keep reading, couldn't put it down type but the book was s good story and the writer, developed a couple of great characters. It was a great "what If" story. I can't tell you the detials beyond the description of the book because that would spoil the read for you. It is a smaller bok and you can read it in a day if you wish. Anyone who really enjoyed Elvis would probably really enjoy the obok.That is who I would recommend the book to!The description [...]

    9. **I received a copy of this book from Story Cartel in return for an honest review.**There was a lot more to this story than I expected. Aside from the obvious paternity story,there was suspense, murder, trauma, and plenty of twists and turns.The characters are all very well developed, and the story was very realistic. This is my second book by this author, and I look forward to more in the future.

    10. Wow, I know this was fiction but I had to keep pinching myself because it seemed real.Great characters and you wanted to see them succeed. This could be a YA , a mystery, a love story. Who wouldn't love a book about ELVIS.
