    This sequel truly was well worth the wait. To see the Duncans having to deal w/other things besides drug related really caught me off guard, then to see who is the real back bone, the brains, and just how much strength is in the family.

It really gives so much explanation of how the tree is structured. The narrator truly gave life to each word, each tale. This is a book that must be read and or listened to.

    It's been three years since Aaron Mackie succeeded in helping his friend and mentor Bishop T.K. Wilson dig his ministry out of financial ruin. Aaron is also responsible for re-energizing the almost defunct choir into something special. His success has drawn national attention, and he's on the verge of signing a huge recording contract. With his life in order, Aaron decides the time is right to propose to Tia Gregory, the church secretary who caught his eye and inspired him to shed his Tiger Woods-like tendencies.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Bishop was realistic. He really showed you he is human and has feeling like every people instead of portraying a holyer than though additude.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to some of Patricia R Floyd's performances and this one she really put more definition into this character. I've also listened to some of Marc Damon Johnson's performances, like the rest he really had you feel who he portrayed.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Bishop not the crash out of Aaron and the entertainment rep.


    Any additional comments?

    This story really is weather changer. It's Sun starts off shining so bright but then the rain and creeps in pouring down rain. There are times the sun tries to peak while it's still pouring down rain but then the clouds are battling the sun and it job to give lite shining bright. It's pouring down rain where there are times you can and can't enjoy it.

    Carl Weber is a New York Times best-selling author who’s made a name for himself with wildly entertaining works marked by his trademark wit and storytelling panache. In The Choir Director, Bishop T.K. Wilson is banking on dynamic new choir director Anthony Mackie to reverse the failing congregation’s fortunes. But while Anthony’s got more than enough chops to raise a heavenly chorus, he’s also got a weakness for the ladies that could make the Devil himself stand up and take notice.

    What did you like best about The Choir Director? What did you like least?

    What I like most was how there was such a tangle of situations going on w/in the story that it always kept the reader on their toes. What I like least about it was that sometimes Symone was predictable.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Choir Director?

    When Symone went to the meeting to cause havoc for Tia by bringing such disturbing news to the meeting.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I loved how each narrator was able to show so much difference in some of the various characters they had to portray along w/ their main character. What I liked least about the perfumes was that sometimes if seemed as if the narrators were reading their rolls instead of giving performances.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    James, He kept me laughing as he went thru his sexscapedes. Although he was a womanizer, he was true example of a pure hearted father. He also showed that it's never too late to change for the better.


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Karen Pitman, Her performance seemed like it was more of a spoiled brat vs the other her performance which came across as one you didn't want to mess w/ her. Both were outstanding


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh YES. To many times I almost missed my transportation or wanted to postpone what I had planned.


    Any additional comments?

    Like a movie or a song, I look forward to listening to it again.
