The Choir Director | [Carl Weber]

The Choir Director

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.

    "Drama!!!!!!"

    What can I say that hasn't already been said? Carl Weber is one of the best! His pen game is crazy! I hate that Monique didn't follow a basic rule... "Verify." I'm so glad to know that James Black was a blessing to others all the way to the end. I'm so glad that Old girl finally got caught in all of her lies. Can't wait to listen to part two.

    Story
    "SURPRISE!!!!!!!"
    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

    Story
    "SNAKES IN THE CHURCH!!!"

    A work of fiction should always have enough drama to hold your interest, but this book goes above and beyond. I hope to NEVER attend a church with so many over-sexed people with such evil intentions for one another.

    The story line is rather loose, but Weber pulled out his heavy duty super glue and tacked it together anyway and forced it to work.

    I am familiar with Mr. Weber's work and there is always drama involved, but I usually find it entertaining. I was disappointed this time because of all of the overly-manufactured drama to the point that no one, no matter how much of a Christian they appeared to be, was above getting down and dirty.

    Despite not being a fan of the story line, I was impressed with the reader's performances and how they made the book come alive.

    "I can relate"

    I would listen to Choir Director again because I have run across characters in my own church portrayed in the book. It is funny, it has heart. It shows faith in what's good.

    "Great Story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I found this author's writing style to be kind of boring. I wish it was more robust and descriptive. Maybe that is just my preference.


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

    The end was an excellent ending. I don't want to give it away.


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

    No.


    Was The Choir Director worth the listening time?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This was the craziest book. At first I thought I was going to hate this book but it really drew me in. The author's writing style is so laid back that at first I was done with the book but his development of the story was great. I feel so many different ways about this book. I know this review is nuts but if you have patience it is a good read.

    "A Darned Good Yarn"
    If you could sum up The Choir Director in three words, what would they be?

    Fast, Funny, Naughty


    What did you like best about this story?

    The first thing one hears when listning to this book is something about it being written for an African American audience, and I'm as white as they come. The first thing I learned as I went forward was that this book is for everyone, and it offered me a glimpse into African American life in America without resorting to over-blown stereotypes.Add to that the fact that this book is really well written, and the storyline is tight, and you have all the ingredients for a darned good yarn, be you black, white, or blue!


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The narrator did a great job of differentiating each character with a voice all their own. I've no idea how people can keep track of such things when narrating, but this guy was superb.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Life in America

    Story
    "Fluffy and sometimes fun"

    A light and fluffy story, with some humor and a little suspense. Sex is an undercurrent driving a lot of the story, and I found a lot of the dialog around sex repetitive and unrealistic. At least I hope not too many people talk about it like these characters do. I thought the ensemble approach worked pretty well and the actors did well.

    "Yuck"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Remove all sex events.


    What could Carl Weber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Kept the basic story line, remove all sexual events. Much too graphic for a story with a title referring to church.


    Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes. There were several narrators


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The cleaner story line was very good.


    Any additional comments?

    Clean it up, way too much sex.

    "interesting story"
    What made the experience of listening to The Choir Director the most enjoyable?

    I thought it was an interesting storyline with relatable characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twists and turns


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I loved the narrater's, they really made the story come to life.


    If you could take any character from The Choir Director out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Well Aaron of course.


    Any additional comments?

    i agree with some of the other reviewers that true men and women of God would not likely behave this way, especially a first lady. However we all know church people be the shadiest ones sometimes so I don't think the story is that far fetched. It 's a good listen no more no less.
