Charlie's odyssey takes him to Finland to meet an academic who performs Elvis songs in long-dead languages while wearing a kilt, and to Canada to find Schmelvis, an Orthodox Jewish Elvis tribute artist. It culminates in Memphis, where Charlie stays at the Heartbreak Hotel and records a song in Sun Studio, the very room where Elvis arguably invented rock'n'roll.

Love quirky fiction, spine-chilling sci-fi and epic histories. My favourite audiobook is Brighton Rock read by Samuel West.
I don't care. I really don't care about Charlie Connelly. I wanted to hear about Elvis and feel I was going on this trip with him, but he sacrifices such interesting details to instead indulge in telling us about his life, his failed attempts at song-writing, and I just don't care.
The writing is terrible. It's like getting stuck with the dullest person at a party.
Despite being only a few hours long, I gave up as it was just too nauseating.
