    "The story unfolds"

    Wow how this story unfolded. I simply love the way the authors played the roles that they were assigned. I didn't really know what to expect but at the end of the book all the scheming that was taking place was brought together very well and each individual family members roll. I didn't expect so much drama and I was waiting to see who the first person in the family business was going to die. This book has some of the best narrators that urban fiction has to offer I love Patricia Floyd and Ezra Knight voices very strong. I would recommend this book to other Carl Weber fans.

    "Excellent"

    Wow! Fast paced and dynamic storyline. I enjoyed the twists and turns of this highly dysfunctional family. Not crazy about the gratuitous sex scenes, but the story kept my attention. Excited to read the next installment.

    "Tough Listen"

    The positive part of this book is the performance. I enjoyed all of the narrators. And there's a great twist in the story.

    However for me, it's difficult to listen when I don't like any of the characters in the book. They are really hateful, antisocial people. The youngest daughter doesn't seem believable at all. Very one dimensional. The family's mother is a bit redeeming. Overall, these are not people I wanted to get to know. I continued to listen, however as I wanted to learn whether what goes around would come around in this tale.

    Cannot recommend this one.

    "An awesome ride!"
    What did you love best about The Family Business?

    I loved the action and the sub plots intertwined in the midst of choas!

    My favorite character was Paris. She was a bit oversexed, cocky but I loved her attitude and skills.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The intensity of the situations

    Good idea, but didn't work. Situation is interesting, but the characters are wooden, and the plot drags. Quit half way through.

    Love books on tape! It's all about the narrators for me though. No matter how good the story, if the narrator doesn't cut it...

    "AWESOME TWIST - DON'T HESITATE TO BUY THIS BOOK!!!"

    I love how the book starts one way then ends another. I actually went back and listed to the beginning of the book again...it was so good. It's amazing how the authrs made the characters sound one way come to find out they are another way. (I don't want to give out any info. and ruin it for potential readers/listeners.) I'd give this ten stars!

    "Just the rite elements"
    Where does The Family Business rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    1 -5 I'd say a 4.


    What other book might you compare The Family Business to and why?

    Something on the side. Like that audiobook each narrator gave their character true definition which really allowed me not just to hear the story but view it as well.


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

    I listened to a couple of the narrator's work. They really brought out their creativity in this one.


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

    Paris, b/c she would keep the night live watching her get her pic of the guys as well as tend to her business which would be amusing and interesting.
