Publisher's Summary

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.

    "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.

    Story
    "A Plot With More Holes than Swiss Cheese"

    Sex and murder is made to seem righteous in this fabrication. The weak and convoluted storyline seems to be written only to provide a justification for the worldly behaviors of a supposedly Godly cast. Where an outside investigation into financial crimes was conducted to expose the culprits, no action was taken to prevent the collusion and fraud that eventually cost the Church millions of dollars and threatened its existence, only averted by a fortuitous circumstance. I will not hunt up other stories by this author.

    "Trashy"

    A review required 15 words. I did not get very far in this book. Characters not appealing.

    Story
    "Church Politics is no joke!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Choir Director to be better than the print version?

    I cannot rate that because I never read the print version. The audio version was outstanding in many ways. First there were the characters, the insight to what really happens in the church pollitic and how those the congregation look up to to feed us God's Word are usually so mired in their own personal agendas that the content and context of God's word gets lost behind their misbehavior.


    What other book might you compare The Choir Director to and why?

    A book in print by Kimberla Lawson Roby where the Pastor engaged in some unsavory behavior. This one addressed the elephant in the room of Choir Directors almost always being gay. This one thank God was not portrayed as being gay however he did have his issues of infidelity and secrets.


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

    The real flavor of how the ones who are in seats of power in the corporate church structure really conduct business. It gives a more expanded look at the mindset behind the actions of those involved from the Pastor on down to the janitor.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and it is a book that I listened to in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book. I would have loved for a more compassionate ending to the blackmailing friend of the Pastor by the Pastor's wife but such is life when even Christians do not really know who and whose we are.

    "Just OK."

    Simplistic predictable storyline. The narrator performances helped to move the story along. I'll pass on other Webber books.

    "NOT VERY INTERESTING"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    BETTER STORY LINE, LESS DESCRIPTION OF SITUATION -- THIS STORY WAS DRAGGING AND WAS VERY PREDICABLE. LESS CORNY SCENARIO ..


    Would you ever listen to anything by Carl Weber again?

    YES, I NORMALLY LISTEN TO MR WEBER


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    SEVERAL OF THE READERS WAS SOUNDING MECHANICAL
