Lips 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Lips is a most pleasant book to read. If you ever wondered what a famous person like Elvis Presley was really like, this is your chance to find out. The way this book is written it is like the reader is right along for the entire story. It is truly pleasant to read. I am looking forward to Byron Edwards' next book. Like the others who have written reviews, it is surprising that Lips has not yet been made into a movie. What in the world are they waiting on? But this is a great read. I recommend it to everyone.

When I finished reading Lips, I set the book down and thought about the entire story from beginning to end. It was impressively engineered. When you begin the book, you have no idea it will end as it does and yet, when you have finished it, you see the entire logical sequence of events that takes the reader from the beginning to the end. A buddy of mine recommended it to me, not because of Elvis but because of archaeology. He knew that I have a great interest in archaeology and would probably appreciate this story. He was right. In fact, I was somewhat turned off by the picture of Elvis on the front of the book. I mean, I had nothing against Elvis but it was the archaeology that drew me to the story. The author did a great job in taking the reader from the beginning to the end. It was well thought out. As some of the other reviews have mentioned, this book will make a great movie. You can see the scenes in your head as you read the story. That 'Festival of the Sun' would make a great scene in a movie. I also recommend this book. I think everyone will enjoy it.

I received Lips as a Christmas gift and I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I loved the archaeology aspects of it and truly felt as if I were traveling with Elvis and getting to experience him firsthand. As others have mentioned, this story has a slight subtle 'twist' to it. I enjoyed that. The ending is a classic and the photograph is a genuine 'hoot.' It really does prove that the story is true. If you like reading books just for the pure fun of it, you will like reading Lips.

My sister gave me a copy of Lips as a Christmas gift and it has become one of my favorite gifts. As an Elvis fan, it was special for me to get to read this story. It was like getting to visit with Elvis himself. I know some of the other reviewers have said something along that line, but it is true. When you finish reading this story, you feel as if you spent some time with Elvis and you are sad that the story is over. This is a completely different Elvis book than any I have read before. There is very little profanity and what there is is mild. All the other Elvis books I have read have been full of profanity. And this book proves that it is not needed. What Lips is is a good story. It is a surprising story. No one would expect this story nor associate Elvis with it. But the author makes it all work. I am an Elvis fan and I had not heard of this book. But my sister surprised me with it and it is a favorite gift. She has her own copy and it is somthing we both agree on ¿ that we both like this book. We don't agree on much. I do recommend it. If you read it, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

When you finish reading Lips, you will put the book down and ponder, 'How did this author think of this?' I guess that's what makes authors authors ¿ they are able to think of things like this. When the story begins, you have no idea that Elvis Presley is going to be involved in it. And yet, the way the author manages to pull it all together makes it seem as if it were the most natural thing in the world. I think Lips is a work of genius. Undoubtedly, it will be made into a movie. I know they will have to be careful in casting someone to play Elvis but they will also have to be careful to get the exact right person to play Arthur MacGregor. I completely recommend this novel. It is an entertaining read.

After reading Lips, it actually felt like I had known Elvis Presley. It was like I had experienced the time that Arthur MacGregor got to spend with him. When the story was finished, I hated it because I could no longer be with Elvis. This is a truly nice story that is a lot of fun. But more than that, it gave me the experience of getting to know the real Elvis. I have already advised some of my friends to read this book. I'm sure they will enjoy it also.

The way this story is written made me feel as if I were right in the middle of the action. It was like I was there with Elvis. This is an imaginative story about Elvis Presley in 1970. If you like Elvis, you will probably like this book. It's a nice story and full of inside information about Elvis. Unless you're a big Elvis fan like me, you may not get all the little references but that won't take away from your enjoyment of the story. I can easily see this story being made into a movie. Hope so!
