August's Book Discussion "Man in 3B" by Carl Weber



Meet Darryl Graham, or as his new neighbors call him, The Man in 3B. Darryl’s new to the Jamaica, Queens building, but from day one he’s made quite an impression on his neighbors. He has made it very clear he greatly values his privacy, but he is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be, so inquiring minds want to know. Unfortunately, in Darryl’s world, what you know can hurt you, and when he winds up dead, those inquiring minds become the prime suspects.
Meet Darryl Graham, or as his neighbors call him . . .
Darryl has just moved into a Jamaica, Queens, apartment building and his neighbors, both male and female alike, can’t stop talking about him. From his down-to-earth personality to his extreme attractiveness to his undeniable swag, Darryl is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be. Darryl is quickly welcomed into the building and immediately becomes a part of each of the tenants’ lives.
Connie, an overweight and unhappy wife, turns to Darryl for help losing weight, hoping to try and fix her crumbling marriage. But when Darryl starts making Connie feel beautiful again, she questions whether or not her marriage is worth saving. Benny, a spoiled teenager, looks up to Darryl as a role model. When an unexpected event occurs, Benny is left questioning everything he’s ever known. Krystal, Darryl’s first love, wants to make things work with her current boyfriend. Yet, having Darryl back in her life sends her happy home spiraling out of control. And, last but not least, Avery, Connie’s husband, doesn’t care about anyone or anything when a financial opportunity comes his way-that is, until he notices how much time his wife is spending with their new neighbor.
Everything seems to be going well, until someone is murdered, and everyone becomes a prime suspect.

    I finished the book last night and noticed their are Discussion Questions for this book. So, disregard these questions or use them for a future book that doesn't have questions. See you on Saturday.

    Hello Mocha Girls. Here are a few questions you may want to look over for our August Book Club Meeting. I was limited on character count, so this is only a few of them. I will have copies available at the meeting as well.

    1.How did you experience the book? Were you engaged immediately, or did you feel you had to force yourself to read the book?
    2.Which character do you like the most and why? The least and why?
    3.Did you feel that the book fulfilled your expectations? Were you disappointed?
    4.Are the characters convincing? Do they come alive for you? How would you describe them — as sympathetic, likeable? thoughtful, intelligent, innocent, naive, strong or weak? Something else?
    5.Do any characters change or grow by the end of the story? Do they come to view the world and their relationship to it differently?
    6.How did the book compare to other books by the author?
    7.What surprised you the most about the book?
    8.Did the book end the way you expected? If so, why? If not, why not
