Critic Reviews

"Weber keeps the pacing brisk and loads the narrative with enough surprise turns to keep readers guessing to the end." ( Publishers Weekly)

Carl Weber Rocks!

The First Lady was an awesome listen. If you've read any of Weber's books, you know how dysfunctional (aka normal) everyone is and this book had it's share! It was hilarious!! The book had so much humor and drama I hated for it to end. If you're not familiar with Weber's books, give this one a try - you won't be disappointed!

Hard to believe...

The story was easy to listen to, but the plot of it was a little carried away to me... IF there is a man out there that is that HOLY... show me him! I found myself drifting off...

Good Book

Loved it. I like the fact that this book includes the fact that we're all human. Christian or not. Human first.

Hallelujah!

I'm a Christian and I've been in church all my life, but I know how "holier than thou" church folks can be. Kudos to the author for portraying REAL people with REAL issues trying to serve God. The audio production was outstanding! The ensemble cast brought this story to life and it was a joy to listen to each character. Very well done by all. I recommend it highly!

Really inspirational

I really love this Book-it really was realistic to what may happen in the churches today and that we are all human no matter what title we may hold GOD has the answer.

Seeking Control Beyond the Grave

The characters in this novel are realistically flawed. Each one was given a goal and tried to achieve it. There was only one that could have fulfilled the role from the beginning. Yet due to influences, other characters were placed into a competition. The novel is definitely worth a listen!
