I would recommend it to others.
Definitely edgy with several unexpected twist and turns. Depth of characters were rich as was character development.
Good use of multiple readers.
It reminded me of a mystery story.
Benny confronting Darryl, only to find out they both were own two different levels.
The narrators brought the characters to life
None of them lol, they all got issues
I love to read and I love to listen to a good story!
YES, truly enjoyed it
The narrators did great!
I stayed up one night trying to listen...It was crazy
Just another girl with too many books and not enough time for them all.
This was my first book by this author Carl Weber who has about 20 books to his resume. The man in 3B is hot and seems to catch the eye of every single female in his new building. Who is this man? Daryl Graham and he has a ankle bracelet not from a jewelry store but from the county. Daryl loved Krystal years ago. Daryl is good looking and well respected by the thugs in the neighborhood. That's it! That is all I found out about him in this book. Oh Wait! One more thing. He wears a gold star of David around his neck. Ok. That's it!
A murder takes place in this book and every single person in the building is now a suspect. Each chapter you get to read various perspectives on a character's relationship to Daryl as they try to build their alibis. There is Avery, husband to Connie and a general awful verbally abusive man. Connie, his wife is overweight and tries to fix everything for Avery. Connie soon seeks out the help of Daryl to lose weight and Avery is pissed! There is Benny the newly 21 year old who looks up to Daryl to his fathers chagrin and distress. There is Krystal, daughter of Avery and her fiance. She broke Daryl's heart years ago and just moved into the building.
This book is just like Bewster's Place with the neighbors stories inter and co-mingling though out. Complete with love triangles and who is sleeping with whos? There is so much going on in this one. I think I would have enjoyed this read if there were not sooo many holes in the story. Like why does Daryl have so much respect from people? Why is he under house arrest? Others I can't write about without spoiling the end.
There was just way to much drama for my taste but I found the ending interesting. I didn't see it coming.
As for the narrators I thought they all did a good job. Not amazingly good but good! They were really trying to put emotion into their parts. For some reason the narrator that read for Krystal annoyed me and I am ok with it because the character did too!
It was just ok! The plot was just ok! The narrators were just ok!
Pretty Good but...
I really liked the overall story and the lives of all the tenants. I liked each character and all their stories. I loved how they were all connected some how.
I loved the narrator of Connie the most. She was passionate and I really felt like she gave the best performance.
How much do you really know about your neighbors?
I really enjoyed this book overall. I liked all the narrators except Krystal. I hated the narrator of Krystal. She didn't know how to perform or use the appropriate emotion for the situation. She read all her parts in the same peppy happy voice. It just didn't fit. I didn't like the ending. I felt it was too Lifetime movie ending. I think he even says that in the book. I wish there was a different ending. But overall it was worth listening to.
This is my first audio book and I really enjoyed it.
I enjoyed it, It was my first audio book. I'm looking forward to my next.
We meet the characters and the situations in their life that help you connect to the characters. You even get the opportunity to meet the man in 3B and learn about him. I not going to give anything away but I did like the narrators and the story was put together very well. If you like a good mystery here it is. Carl Weber has created a great plot and unforgettable characters. You will want to meet the man in 3B he is one of those unforgettable characters. Just when you think you have the book figured out the ending is a shock. Worth the time for Carl Weber fans and new readers to his work.
i am an avid reader. I love to read an assortment of books but i love urban fiction and erotica. I love romance and soTell us about
the way in which the narrator was able to give each character its own voice that sounded so close to what I heard in my head.
Yes, yes, yes
Carl Weber, a masterful weaver of words, plots and unforgettable characters. Do not try to compare this writer to any of the rest he is truly in a league of his own. His book will leave you wanting more, just when you think you have him figured out he goes and flips the script on you real quick. In this book, one of his best to date, he will have you so engrossed that you will leave dinner burning and forget to go to sleep for work tomorrow He has unforgettable characters, a realistic plot anda sexy man that is to die for. I will not tell you more except read this book. It is exemplary work..
I haven't read the print version but I would definitely read it after listening to this audio book.
I enjoyed all of the characters.
Yes, I would recommend this book. It was not horrible but all of his other titles have been so good that this one just did not measure up the same way in my opinion.
Either more characters or more content to the existing characters.
I just prefer audiobooks. With a good narrator it can come across as two friends talking.
Still worth reading.
