Ginger Alden hat mich überrascht. Ich hätte nicht gedacht, dass sie nach all den Jahren, in denen sie sich völlig fern von der Elvis-Szene gehalten hat, doch noch ein Buch über ihre Beziehung mit Elvis Presley in den letzten 9 Monaten seines Lebens veröffentlicht. Jetzt hat sie es getan - und das ist gut so.

Ginger Alden mag eine Außenseiterin unter den Elvis-Weggefährten sein (kaum einer aus der Memphis Mafia-Truppe kann wirklich viel mit ihr anfangen), aber sie ist definitiv eine Frau mit Klasse. Das beweist sie eindrucksvoll mit ihrem Buch. Mehr wird nicht verraten. Prädikat: absolut lesenswert!

Ginger hat da eine nette Geschichte erzählt, aber eben nur eine Geschichte. Wenn man andere Bücher, z.B. Carless Love oder Bücher von anderen Zeitgenossen kennt, hat sie meiner Meinung nach nicht die Wahrheit erzählt. Sie will uns jetzt ihre Beziehung als DIE große Liebe darstellen, wobei ALLE in Elvis' Umgebung damals den Eindruck hatten, dass sie nicht gerne bei ihm war und von ihrer Familie dazu gedrängt wurde. Dass ihre Mutter nach Elvis' Tod das Estate verklagt hat, sagt ja schon viel. Ein Versprechen einzuklagen, ist für mich pietätlos. Hausangestellte, MM-Mitglieder, eigentlich alle in Elvis' Umgebung haben erzählt, dass es oft Streit zwischen den beiden gab, weil sie die Nacht zu Hause verbringen wollte bzw. Elvis nicht bei den Tourneen begleiten wollte. Und dass es für sie als 20-jähriges Mädchen ach so toll war, immer im Schlafzimmer zu sein und die Nächte mit lesen von spirituellen Büchern zu verbringen??? Sorry, das kann ich nicht glauben. Ohne eine Schlüsselloch-Geschichte erwartet zu haben, fehlte mir bei dieser Story einfach die Romantik.

Gingers story is well written and do not exagerate her inside knowledge on Elvis Presley, but tells some nice stories and describe his problems the last few month in a way that seems fair and shows her strong care/love for Elvis. It also shows the story of a very young girlnot really knowing or getting really close to Elvis.
Her stories about all the gift she and her family gets are amazing. When she all the time continue the story about all the not fulfilled promises of gifts and her 'socalled' decided mariage to Elvis you feel that this is a person and her family becoming greedy. I was not there and can not judge these parts of her story, and it seems like those closer to Elvis never confirmed these either.
All in all a nice small addition to the life story of Elvis Presley.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe das Buch gelesen und war enttäuscht. Sie hat es groß angekündigt, sie würde die "Wahrheit und nichts als die Wahrheit und ENDLICH die Wahrheit" aufdecken. Da mischt sie seit 2012 auf Facebook mit, in der ersten Phase der Vermarktung ihres Buches. sicherlich auch in der Hoffnung, das Buch gut zu verkaufen. Ich möchte hier vom Inhalt nicht viel verraten - ich habe mittendrin aber mind. 50 Seiten überschlagen, weil es extrem langweilig wurde. Natürlich passiert nicht viel in diesen 9 Monaten. Ich glaube ihr jetzt auch nicht mehr als vorher, das Elvis sie heiraten wollte. Wir waren nicht dabei und Elvis ist nicht mehr da, um ihre Worte zu bestätigen. NIemand nahm von ihr Notiz - als Elvis starb, packte sie ihre Sachen und ging nach Hause. Für die Familie und die "Memphis-Mafia" war sie ein Niemand.

She gets a bad rap and I don't know why 5. September 2014
Von Debra J Shockley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
She was a young girl when she got romantically involved with the much older Elvis. Elvis was immature and shouldn't have pursued someone so young. Don't get me wrong-I love Elvis!!! However, I'm no fool and he was flawed like all of us. I feel sad for Ginger because she was pretty much shut out after his death and treated badly by fans and people that were close to Elvis. Also, nasty things were said of her. Bottom line is Elvis DID give her a ring and she was in his bed when he died. He did have serious feelings for her. Those feelings were probably changing for both but she was still considered his girlfriend who was wearing his ring at the time he died. I believe Elvis DID promise to pay off her mother's house. Why not? He bought houses for his maid, childhood friends so why not believe this was his intention. Elvis just didn't put it in writing. Therefore, the Alden family got nowhere in the courtrooms. I like how Ginger didn't run anyone down in the book. She didn't speak negatively about Priscilla and I know Priscilla never spoke badly of Ginger. In Priscilla' s book she spoke of Ginger being so young and taking care of Elvis was too much of an expectation for a girl of her age. So there you go. Sadly, because Priscilla is Lisa's mother and the ex wife of Elvis, she comes off representing anything Elvis. They were divorced and Elvis had MANY girlfriends during and after the marriage. Vernon left Priscilla in charge after his death and like it or not, she has done a great job keeping his memory alive. Ginger, I'm glad you wrote this book and hope you make a lot of money. Why not? Priscilla, Ann Margaret, Elvis' maid, Larry Gellar. Joe Esposito , Jerry Shilling, the entire Memphis Mafia, Cybill Sheppard, Linda Thompson, Kathy Westmoreland, and the list goes on and on have all written books about Elvis. Seems to me she has been extremely silent over the years unlike the others that I have mentioned. She looks great. She doesn't look like an alien due to too much plastic surgery. She appears to be a smart cookie. Not a total phony like some I mentioned. She is still married to just one man and has a son she is very proud of. Ginger did well and without all of Elvis' money or using his name. If she sold some of the things Elvis gave her- who cares??? I heard Priscilla and Lisa Marie are selling Elvis' personal items. Lisa sold a huge portion of her portion in EPE. The rest are constantly giving interviews and writing books. Why judge? This is a nice book about a young girl who fell in love with an older man who happened to be Elvis and walked away with nothing but a car and some jewelry, was with him when he died and has done well with her life. Elvis is smiling down on her from heaven.

Truth is like the sun 6. September 2014
Von Tieppo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I spent the past two days reading this book. I wasn't sure what to expect when I purchased it, but I felt it was important to read Ginger Alden's side to the story as I have always respected her as a person for being Elvis' last major romance and the last person to see him alive. I will admit, I was expecting it to be just another "Elvis book" telling us what happened and what didn't happen according to the author. I was proven otherwise. This book is superbly written. From the moment you begin reading, you are transported back in time and taken on a whirlwind journey. The writing is perfectly descriptive - not at all tedious to read or comprehend, but certainly not indifferent accounts of events as most other books on Elvis have been for me to read either, save for Larry Geller's "If I Can Dream" and a very few others.

Ginger Alden has managed to capture a perfect balance of being descriptive and yet "to-the-point" in her writing. I became absolutely transfixed by the magical world of Elvis Presley, an interesting and generous man with faults like you and me, but with an almost other-worldly presence that is punctuated by his strong Spirituality. The book made it wonderfully effortless for my mind to imagine seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling and even tasting Elvis' world - a world quite different to that of the everyday person, and not just because of the fact that this was the most famous man on the earth, but rather because Elvis was an incredibly unique soul. Ginger has succeeded in sweeping the reader into that world here in 2014, just as she was swept up into it herself in 1976. Most importantly, it reads like the truth. At no point did I feel I was reading a fabricated account of events, let alone a book of lies.

Some things that I wished had been addressed were not, such as the great amount of health problems that others have said were supposedly crippling Elvis almost completely in his final months, but I did not expect Ginger to go into every detail of Elvis Presley's private medical history - either this was simply good manners on her part, or those stories of Elvis being a slurring, tumbling, terminally ill cripple on his last legs have been fabricated by others. By the amount of energy and intellect Ginger describes Elvis as displaying in his final months, which is confirmed in my mind by Elvis' late 1976 performances and those pictures of an energetic and almost athletic Elvis taken in Hawaii in 1977, I would say that the latter is the case. "Crippled old Elvis" seems to be, for the most part, a fabrication to make certain individuals look good while making Elvis and those he truly loved and cared for look bad. This concept of the middle-aged Elvis Presley having such a zest for life does make Elvis' death seem more shocking, as his time with us was clearly not completed. It is sad that most of the things he planned on doing were left unfulfilled. Death truly has no mercy.

All in all, this is a fabulous read, but if you have any strong preconceived ideas about how you think things went on, this book will either turn those thoughts around, or your mind will fight against the information being presented to it. A lot of people seem to think they know the "gospel" of Elvis Presley's life and death. We are sadly seeing a lot of this sort of attitude with all this backlash, negative reviews and even personal attacks against the author and her family and friends. Anyway, I wish to conclude this review by saying a big thank you to Ginger Alden and everybody who contributed in some way to the book for this wonderful insight, and most of all, thank you to Elvis Aaron Presley for being the incredible human being that you were. We will always miss you.

Not writting for the purposes of sensationalism, and all the stronger a record because of it 2. Oktober 2014
Von Galen K. Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I do not know how anyone who reads this book carefully can give it less than five stars. This book has long desparately needed to be written as a crucial monument to the history of Elvis' final year, but the emotional toll on Ginger was surely great. Ginger is very intelligent; she writes with sophistication and a good sense of what themes to revisit throughout the book, particularly Elvis' generosity and spiritual quest, and to lesser degrees her concerns for his health and behavior and her bridge from the world she grew up in to the world only Elvis could have lived in. Those of us who love Elvis, in all his otherworldliness and in all his humanity, can only be grateful for this very detailed chronicle of the final nine months of Elvis' life. As a husband, I know how I would react if my wife were to withhold things from me because she thought it was in my best interests, and Elvis understandably did not take this kindly from his 20-year-old love. It is sad to me to know that so many of the memories people share about Graceland happened in the dining room, but Ginger had none of those things as the middle-aged Elvis retreated most all the time to his bedroom. Yet who could know what it was like to be in the body of someone who had accomplished every conceivable thing an entertainer could dream of doing, and who, while adoring his fans, was on a quest for something that could take him to a still higher plane. One can only wonder, but Ginger was the person who was there. Perhaps the unspoken hero of the book is Ginger's husband, who must be extraordinariliy gracious to allow the king of rock and roll to remain such a large part of his wife's memory and consciousness.
It is impossible to tell her story honestly and completely without Ginger speaking of other persons around Elvis who befriended her--or not. It is painful for an Elvis fan to read these things. I am not blaming Ginger or anyone else. But I will say that she does not go out of her way to put down persons, especially in the highly emotionally charged issue of the house that her mother was told by Elvis he would pay off (which Vernon admitted) but that Elvis' lawyer had not taken care of as he promised at the time of Elvis' death. Other persons have taken shots at the Alden family over this, and while in hindsight everyone would have probably handled something differently over this, it frankly seems incomprehensible to me even after reading the book why the house wasn't paid like Elvis wanted and that Ginger's mom, injured and divorced, really needed. If Vernon was executor of Elvis' estate, why did he tell Ginger he had lost power of attorney rights when Elvis died? Ginger speaks only respectfully of Vernon, and he apparently developed a special appreciation for her too, but I still don't understand exactly how he didn't make sure the Alden mortgage was paid when he acknowledged Elvis had verbally promised multiple times to do so and still made sure Ginger's mom did get the swimming pool Elvis promised her. Ginger's hesitance to give all the details here, which is a rarity in the book, reinforces to me that she has genuinely not wanted to milk the Presley estate for money all these years. I think she wanted to take care of Elvis, her mom and family, in the best way she knew how, and that this remains her focus in writing the book, with taking care of fans' interest in historical record now added.

A Bunch of Nothing 14. September 2014
Von Molly's Mom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It was a slow read. Not a lot in insight into the man and his life. It seemed all he did was sit around in blue PJs in his bedroom reading, and we all know better than that just from pictures which have been published. I wasn't looking for scandal or anything like that just his normal day to day activities. I was disappointed

The best book I have read on Elvis from a personal ... 25. September 2014
Von rick marino - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The best book I have read on Elvis from a personal point of view in a long long time, Almost 400 pages and I did not want it to end, nor did I want Elvis to end. She literally takes you on her and Elvis journey together during the last 9 months of his life in detail. It shows you Elvis as the person he was, not the performer, but the man. Elvis was a very complicated individual. He was lonely and she came into his life and really in my opinion helped him with his need for a constant companion. For someone just 19 turning 20 when she met him, it is amazing how she was able to handle being with Elvis and his world as well as she did. An amazing book about America's only King! With lot's of great stuff. Written as honest as she possibly could sharing with us a very personal relationship from her past. I am glad she waited 37 years to decide to write Elvis and Ginger! A really great read, especially for Elvis's fans. Just try to keep an open mind till you've read the final page.
Thank you Ginger for sharing...Sincerely; Rick Marino
