    The biography Elvis Presley was written by Toney Gentry. Elvis Aaron Presley was born January 8, 1953. His parents were Vernon and Gladys Presley. Elvis had a twin who sadly died in his birth. He was the surviving and the little twin. Vernon, his father, was a farmer, and Gladys, his mother was a factory worker. Elvis’s dad went to prison because he sold a hog for four-dollars which was too little. He made people think it was fourty-dollars. He was not alone, but with two of his friends. The yea The biography Elvis Presley was written by Toney Gentry. Elvis Aaron Presley was born January 8, 1953. His parents were Vernon and Gladys Presley. Elvis had a twin who sadly died in his birth. He was the surviving and the little twin. Vernon, his father, was a farmer, and Gladys, his mother was a factory worker. Elvis’s dad went to prison because he sold a hog for four-dollars which was too little. He made people think it was fourty-dollars. He was not alone, but with two of his friends. The year 1938 was a very difficult year for the Presley family. Elvis’s father worked as a laborer in prison and the farm. The difficulties at that farm were that the place was very sunny and the guardians were too much strict. Elvis and his mother, Gladys sang together and shared their meal with other people of the community. When he sang with his mom, it was the time when he started getting influenced by music and it was the first time he sang. Elvis’s childhood was full of learning music, which he loved so much. June 6, 1956 was the first performance of Elvis. He was amazing with his moves and his voice. He had a lot of fans and was nicknamed “The King of Rock ”. Elvis decided to stop his career and go work at the military. He left his home country to go to Germany. Elvis met Priscilla Bonlieu, which would later be his wife. After two years of working at the military, Presley returned to the US to continue his singing career. Fans were so happy when they heard the news. Elvis soon married Priscilla Bonlieu, and gave birth to a girl whom they named Lisa Marie Presley. Elvis and Priscilla sadly divorced. Presley’s career was not only singing, but acting on movies and commercials. He acted on 33 movies. Elvis Presley sadly died August 16, 1977 because of alcohol. He is now remembered as a hero of pop and acting. As one can see, Elvis Presley lived a very successful life. This story was strong enough to answer three questions. Before reading this book, I asked myself how was Presley’s childhood and how did he become a great rock ‘n’ rollin’. What I like about this person is that he didn’t give up forever in singing and he worked very hard to accomplish his influence. I think that Elvis Presley is a hero because he had many fans and attracted many people during his songs. He also made special moves and made the rock era much greater. As one can see, Elvis Presley was remembered as a successful hero thanks to his hard work and by achieving his goals. I would recommend this book to High School students because this biography had many special vocabulary words and less than a High School level would not understand the story without rereading it several times. I would also recommend this book to people who are interested on reading about stars’ lives and famous people and how they have lived a successful life.

    When people say that books take you places you've never been, they're talking about "The Coal Tower." The Coal Tower comes to life on the page through rich and diverse characters throbbing with hopes and dreams (and a few barely struggling through) whose lives intersect on a pivotal day, Game Day in Charlottesville, VA. Gentry skillfully paints a town through several uniquely personal lenses, all players in a landscape imbued with academics, racism, and social climbing--a tumbleweed of connection When people say that books take you places you've never been, they're talking about "The Coal Tower." The Coal Tower comes to life on the page through rich and diverse characters throbbing with hopes and dreams (and a few barely struggling through) whose lives intersect on a pivotal day, Game Day in Charlottesville, VA. Gentry skillfully paints a town through several uniquely personal lenses, all players in a landscape imbued with academics, racism, and social climbing--a tumbleweed of connections that weave a story ripe with relationships that stretch and snap with love, resentment, loyalty, and betrayal. The story builds and builds. The writing is beyond imaginative and beautiful. Many stories reveal the thoughts of characters, but somehow, Gentry infuses those thoughts with a level of detail rarely seen in literature. From famed neurosurgeon Dr. Cannon, to his wife Iris, to Chloe and Lucas, Sid and Mattie, this story reveals with laser clarity the way we all see ourselves and our place in life—how we determine what we have earned and what is owed to us, what we value, and what we figure out along the way, and how sometimes, we are wrong about all of it. And the ending! Wow. I want more.

    This book begins like a coal train whose engines ramp up, and with strength and steadfastness begin to pull the long line of cars. Then you are caught in the coal bins and in the lives and minds of the characters in Charlottesville as 3 different worlds begin to take shape. Gentry weaves these different worlds together into a strand that had me turning each page after promising I would stop at the end of the chapter. A great story told by a great story teller. Can't wait for the sequel! This book begins like a coal train whose engines ramp up, and with strength and steadfastness begin to pull the long line of cars.

    Gentry writes with an ear and a heart. Not a non-poetic sentence in the book. I was mesmerized from beginning; characters rang sad but true. The dialogue was faithful to the way people talk these days--in blurts, and you just don't miss the subject-predicate-object sort of speech you find in most novels. And the author sure knows his stuff, from arcane facts about coal cars to idiomatic southern. Can't believe it's his first novel. Wow. Gentry writes with an ear and a heart.

    The Coal Tower instantly captivates and immerses the reader into the rich inner lives of each character, the story lines intertwine beautifully and the plot drives steadily forwards until its final destination. Not only that, but the author is able to translate the contrasting beauty and squalor of Charlottesville into a very authentic, and tangible way. When I finished this book I instantly wanted to read it again, knowing that I would pick up on details and viewpoints in a different way the se The Coal Tower instantly captivates and immerses the reader into the rich inner lives of each character, the story lines intertwine beautifully and the plot drives steadily forwards until its final destination.

When I finished this book I instantly wanted to read it again, knowing that I would pick up on details and viewpoints in a different way the second time I read it. To me, a story which allows the reader to re-visit it again, and approach the storyline with a different perspective each time, is a mark of a truly great novel. I cannot recommend this read highly enough.
