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.

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.
Not from this genre but cetainly from this author
I think the narrators did the best they could with such an impossible story and inane dialogue.
I would not have published it at all. There is hardly one scene that I didn't find offensive.
LOVE reading but illness makes listening easier. Thanks audible, for pulling me back into life!
Didn't need the nasty sex language, especially IN church! Kind of offensive and perpetuates negative stereotypes about African Americans. None of the African Americans in my family or friends would EVER act like these characters did.
Very good book as always.... I was hoping for a better ending with Simone but this one will due. Can't wait to read part 2. It's on my wish list!!!!! I'm never disappointed with Mr. Webber's books.

I had to put aside a couple of times because of the frustrating decisions the characters ad but all on all it was good
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.
juicy,page-turner, fatal attraction type stuff
when tia told simone she would whup her ass lol
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.
When Symone went to the meeting to cause havoc for Tia by bringing such disturbing news to the meeting.
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.
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.
