    "This is what an audiobook is supposed to be!"

    This book held my attention from the very first chapter to the last word spoken. I couldn't put it down! If the characters sounds familiar, it picks up the storyline of Bishop T.K. Wilson and the First Jamaica Ministries congregation from "The First Lady."

    Be forewarned: if you can't stand cussing and sinning in a fictional story, then this probably isn't the book for you. But ... if you know that we all fall short and that this is just fiction, be prepared to giggle and gasp at all the treachery these church folks stir up.

    Extremely well written and fantastic production. Bravo!!!!!!

    "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.

    "would not recommend"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    someone who would be interested in pornographic literature woven into high drama.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Probably not a book by this particular author or in this genre.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It is probably difficult to elicit a good performance out of poorly written material.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    All of the above. It seems as if the book is titled in a particular way to draw christian readers into an extremely sordid tale.


    Any additional comments?

    If the choir director is the protagonist then there should be enough material to keep the story developed around his character minus the sordid drama of too many other characters.

    "Low people in somewhat high places"

    A story filled with people trying to hurt each other. Foul language. Not at all edifying. Story interesting enough to keep me listening. Poor ending.

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

    I found this book to be an insult to religion, choir directors and the entire afro-american race. Gave up on it with disgust about half way through. I am going to ask for my credits back.


    Has The Choir Director turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not from this genre but cetainly from this author


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I think the narrators did the best they could with such an impossible story and inane dialogue.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Choir Director?

    I would not have published it at all. There is hardly one scene that I didn't find offensive.
