This book was so amazing and more than what I ever expected it to be. This book takes place in the era of the Civil Rights movement and is a realistic view from a outcast child. Tangy lives in a poor household with a single mother who has many children by different men. In the beginning she sees the world through a childs eyes and then certain circumstances and situations throughout the book make her wise beyond her years and makes her grow up faster then a child should grow. She is only 18 at the end of the book and you see she has a story to tell of a life you would never expect a child to go through. My favorite character in the book is Junior because this character made Tangy realize how smart she was and kept her mind on trying to better herself and her situation and was a great person for her to look up to. The Narrator also did an amazing job telling the story and making the audience feel as if they were a part of the story. I could see the scenes in my head and felt like I too was a child watching all the madness happening around me. Great book that I would recommend to everyone.
I am so excited to be introduced to this author and I will definitely be a supporter for this one. This book had my mind reeling and trying to define what a true ride or die chick is. Sparkle is the main chic in this book who is trying to know her place when it comes to her man. The things she goes through and puts up with from her man Sayveon are only things that a woman who really loves a man would do. I think what I like most was that Mississippi was the setting in this book and because I know that things like this really happen in the Sip my interest was peaked. Sayveon also gets a reality check that opens the door to his relationship with his folks while growing up. I enjoyed listening to the story unfold and seeing the path each character will take. I am ready for the next book to see what will happen to each characters life and how life experiences may or may not change them. this was a good book with a good narrator that will hold your attention.
I bought this book in hopes that I could change my mind about this author and all I can say is that I will not buy another book by JD Mason. The story started off introducing too many people, so all through the story your like ummmm who is doing what to whom damn I'm lost so let me go back and listen again so I can get it whats going on. NO INDEED THIS IS NOT AN AUTHOR FOR ME.
Although I enjoyed this book I found it unbelievable only because so much happens at the beginning and all the way to the end. Leah is a bad seed and I now understand her thought pattern and the reason why she is truly crazy and out to get Disaya. This book should have been named Prada Plan 2 a bad seed knows all evil. Leah is insane but yet so crafty and conniving. All this to destroy Disaya but at the end of the day only the best will survive and she will get the family she fought so hard to have. I am a Disaya fan from jump, she sounds weak in the beginning but eventually she gets on her game in order for her to survive. Just bought PP3 and can't wait to unveil the next part of this story.
oh how I had been waiting to get this book and I wasn't let down. It starts where the last book leaves off with Dahlia trying to control her own empire and become the Boss Bitch at every turn. I realized that the power Dahlia wanted to get was never enough for her. She always wanted more to the point she became obsessed. I was excited to see Liberty handle her business and not let her heart control her mind. Only the strong will survive and a person from the past pops up and becomes part of the rise of some and fall of others. I loved the whole murderville series and will continue to support the audio and paperback of such great authors. Good job Ashley and Jaquavis you got a true fan of your work.
What I liked about this book is how Miasha captures you with the true emotions of the character who sets the stage for the book. When I first saw the title I thought that the book would be trash but I was surprised. My attention was captured from the very beginning. This book also teaches you about loyalty and how being loyal to the wrong people will mess you up. The narrator did a great job and I would suggest this book to anyone looking for a urban fiction that will keep you wanting to unfold this story.
Carl Weber did it again...all I can say is that I can't wait for the next book. This book was filled with drama. I loved every bit of the book. Paris is still the same and still my favorite I love her true brat daddy's little girl personality. What I liked most about the book is that it introduces new characters and you get to know some characters you only heard about who were silent characters in the first book and their roles in the family business. All the characters were brought to life by the performers and you either love them or hate them. Anyone who enjoys Carl Weber reads will enjoy this and will be waiting for the next installment.
I enjoyed the first book but this one was pretty good too and answered a lot of my questions that I needed answered and at the end you get to find out who the baby daddy is. Loretta got on my nerves in this book though her love for Chicago comes full force and she feels like she is the wife which is where the last book ends. That Damn Granville is still cray cray though and in love with Madison and waiting for the baby to come so he can do his fatherly duties and live and marry Madison. But can he do it from behind bars and will Madison accept him? Which one do you think is the daddy CHICAGO or GRANVILLE? Guess you have to read in order to find out. One thing I learned is that you can be in love with someone but don’t let that person keep a hold on you that makes you disrespect your expectation set for the one you love. Forgiveness is something you have to truly earn and you only deserve that if you are truly remorseful and it will take time to get it. This was a good read and the Narrator was very strong and keeps you interested. Good job HoneyB!
Let me just say this book had me at the edge of my seat. I was like OMG what’s going to happen next? Can it get any worse or is everything going to work out for Disaya? I love Ashley Antoinette's story that she spins in your mind. The narrator was phenomenal and the characters have been formed to make you love, hate or feel for them. The character that had my mind going was Mona and her reality check. I like the way that the people in the story connect from the past to the present. The scheming and plotting throughout the book is a little unbelievable but regardless it's what makes the story grab you and keeps you engaged and wanting to read on. I can't wait to read PRADA PLAN 2 which I think will be like hearing the psychopath’s story. Remember there are three sides to every story with the final story being the truth usually. LOVE THIS READ!
This review is going to be short because I was just not impressed by the story. It was a slow story that took much longer than it should have. The performance was great I love Patricia Floyd and the confidence in her voice. Basically, in this story the main character was living two different lives and finally decides to give up her secret life and get married. The day before she gets married she has the opportunity to live a little and from that the story evolves from there. One thing I did get from this story is not everything that looks good is good for you and to always deal with people with something to lose, just as much as you. This is a calm and sophisticated book for people like my mother. Just wasn’t the book for me. I need some real drama that makes my mind spin.
People aren't always who they portray themselves to be. I have read all of the audiobooks available on audible from Carl Weber and now I am able to piece all the stories together and I have a background view about the characters in different books and I realize that this is a small world. I understand the connections and stories in the Choir Director a lot better now that I see the Jackie Robinson connection. Wow! Carl you did an awesome job writing about this community of people in Jamaica, New York. I can truly relate to a couple of the characters and the tragedy that happened in the book opened my eyes to see how insane people can become. I was in an abusive relationship myself once upon a time and I can't even imagine having to go through the things the young lady in the book had to encounter the steps some men go to make a woman's life a living hell. I left because I was ready to go and tired of the environment I had become use to but it was no where near as drastic as the things that I have heard people going through and I did have the opportunity to walk away without feeling a major financial loss or the feeling of worthless... CARL WEBER you are my all time fave author. This book was pretty good and I'm glad to see my question about the baby Marcus in Player Haters was answered cause I wanted to know what happened next. The narrators are phenominal as usual and the book kept me wanting to listen to the whole story. Good read
