Good idea, but didn't work. Situation is interesting, but the characters are wooden, and the plot drags. Quit half way through.
First of all, I LOVED the performances, especially Ezra Knight! I love audiobooks that have different Narrators to play each Character... it keeps it interesting!
The story was very good and the role each family member played made me want to learn more about each Character. If you like the action and drama to continue in each Chapter, you will find this book very interesting... like all Carl Weber books! :-)
A total book geek who wishes she had the gift of writing!!
When the "true" jobs of the characters are revealed.
Of Course Paris. Wouldn't mind hearing more about Vegas, but I'm sure he will have his own story soon.
This is must have to any collection. Drama, suspense. Twists at the end. It's hard to pause the book. You'll want to finish it in one sitting.
I am an urban fiction addict!! Wahida Clark books are my fave! I love the Thug Series. I am an avid reader and Audible makes it even better!
Ive listened to about 4 or 5 now, and this book would have to be #2. It was a good solid story, but FOR ME....all I read are the "Murder, Murder, Kil, Kill" urban fiction books, and sometimes the characters actions were not very "Gangsta". They were a bit too soft for me in some areas, to be this big bad "crime" family. But it was still worth the listen.
YES!!! Because I LOVE LOVE LOVE Carl Webber! He can do no wrong in my eyes :-)
It was GREAT! It was nice for all the characters to have their own voice.
The Family Business ranks in the top 10 audiobooks I have listened to over the past 12 years.
When I learned that Paris's job description of "trouble shooter" translated to assassin. What a twist and shocker! Even after learning what the Family Business really was, I didn't expect the spoiled Paris to be a major player.
The narrators were pretty good, some better than others, but all in all the performance was pleasing
The Trouble Shooter
Now that I've discovered Carl Weber, I've put all of his books on my wish list. Just bought a new one tonight!
I listened to this series in two and half days! I couldn't stop listening. Can't wait for book THREE!
Not sure there was only one favorite scene. The book was captivating.
This was so different from the usual Carl Weber books! Don't get me wrong I love all things Carl Weber. But this series had some Mafia type moments. LOL! I read book two and listened to book one. Both were excellent and I can't wait for book 3 to come out! Ruby got on my darn nerves! I swear I wanted to book slap her!! I mean get a clue girl! Paris is still a hot mess and Sasha is just as crazy! Just a great series.
1 -5 I'd say a 4.
Something on the side. Like that audiobook each narrator gave their character true definition which really allowed me not just to hear the story but view it as well.
I listened to a couple of the narrator's work. They really brought out their creativity in this one.
Paris, b/c she would keep the night live watching her get her pic of the guys as well as tend to her business which would be amusing and interesting.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The book starts on one course and then twists abruptly to another one. I liked that...I didn't see it coming. The characters are well-developed within the context of an unusual family...whose family members are matter-of-fact pure sociopaths. This ordinary presentation of extraordinary choices, people, and incidents left me thoroughly entertained. I was intrigued at the knowledge that this is a composite picture of people and families who really do exist and think in this extraordinary way.
I'm addicted to Audible. A new grandma I am responsible for my grandsons library, which reignited my interest in books.
The story line got better eventually and then went over the top again
It was over acted and that could have been the writing too. Too stereotypical in the character development. Characters felt like characters not people.
