Yes, I enjoyed it.
The twists were great.
The different personality shined.
I'm not sure, the title is on point.
Will be reading more from C.W.
Say something about yourself!
I enjoyed listening to this book. I guess you never really know a person the three men in this book were best friends each one of them thinking they knew each other well, and that was not the case. Many twist and turns must listen and be careful how you treat people as well as pay attention to your mate sometime we ignore the red flags.
Love books on tape! It's all about the narrators for me though. No matter how good the story, if the narrator doesn't cut it...
Don't hesitate to purchase this book. It's full of twists! No one is ever who they seem to be. If CW's books were all I ever read, I wouldn't be unhappy. Another five star rating. The narrator does an excellent job, too. I hope you purchase this book and enjoy.
I loved how the story kept you wanting more. The ending was a shocker and I didn't have a clue until it was revealed.
Hi my name is Bianca and I am a avid reader. I love all types of genres and read all the time. I am a book worm and always will be one.
Unbelievable, crazy, and surprising
I liked James because he stepped up to the plate and claimed his son and did right by him in taking care of him.
He brings personality to the character.
Alison because I was surprised to find out that she had paid someone to beat up her husband so that he would not leave her even though she knew that he was gay.
I was also surprised to find out that Brent was gay and that Sonny was crazy.
I thought this book was ok. However, It had a nice twist to 2 of of the characters. I like Carl Weber but I don't think I'd recommend it for the price.
"Three best friends who've grown up together encounter some of the real tests of manhood." So reads the nutshell summary contained in this book's Audible "mouse-over" description. What I failed to either notice or discover before purchasing it was that this is a book BY an African-American author ABOUT African-American men. My bad. I'm an about-as-white-as-they-come caucasian male. So, to say that my frame of reference was somewhat lacking is probably a bit of an understatement.
Of course, I'm not a complete dolt, so it didn't take me long to figure out what was going on here. I had a choice: Flush the book along with my fifteen dollar Audible credit and move on to something more culturally relatable for me, or continue with it and consider it a part of my ongoing education - a glimpse into a world I don't have much exposure to -- in spite of the fact that one of my best friends in life is himself African-American (and no, I'm not saying, "some of my best friends are Black!")
Verdict: I stuck with it. My take-away? Well, if the author's representations are correct, the male propensity for being a womanizing, cheating hound dog is not exclusively contained within the confines drawn by racial lines. Neither, according to Weber is the potential for being a calculating, cruel, murderous, son of a b*tch, masquerading as a solid, hard working, dedicated family man.
Carl Weber is skillful and crafts and an entertaining and engaging set of parallel stories woven together by the theme of longstanding friendships among the main characters. Despite my lack of context, I'm not unhappy I stumbled on this book. A good story is a good story and isn't defined by culture. If you like well-defined characters and twists that are not easily picked up by your reading radar, you won't be disappointed.
As for me, well, I really am going to spend more time reading reviews, listening to narration samples, and paying closer attention before clicking the "buy" button.
This part of the book is excellent. Webber always seems to nail the reality in his books (Baby mama drama). Every situation is real and he takes his time developing the storylines. Can't wait to hear part 2.
The book has a few really surprising twists. I didn't see them coming. The only problem I had is that one of the story line reveals seemed to reward bad behavior.
