    Jodi Picoult's poignant number one New York Times best-selling novels about family and love tackle hot-button issues head on. In The Storyteller, Sage Singer befriends Josef Weber, a beloved Little League coach and retired teacher. But then Josef asks Sage for a favor she never could have imagined - to kill him. After Josef reveals the heinous act he committed, Sage feels he may deserve that fate. But would his death be murder or justice?

    What made the experience of listening to The Storyteller the most enjoyable?

    This book/story was skillfully crafted, really well done.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I enjoyed the interweaving of the stories and putting together the pieces during the telling prior to them being revealed more directly.


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

    I really liked the different narrators, and will seek other books with multiple narrators now.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried helplessly at times and felt quite strongly several times. Part 2 of the book was so engrossing, I found it difficult to even multitask and just sat actively listening to much of that part.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book so much, I'm still feeling tempted to listen to it a second time right now immediately after finishing it, regardless of having 11 new audio books to select from.

    A former TV writer, Marshall Karp is the author of three previous Lomax and Biggs mysteries, including the uproarious series debut, The Rabbit Factory. In Cut, Paste, Kill, Lomax and Biggs investigate a disturbing series of murders—with the only clues being scrapbooks left at the scene of each crime.

    What disappointed you about Cut, Paste, Kill?

    I cannot imagine how anyone can listen to that narrator for even a whole hour, let alone the entire book. I'd give it zero stars if that were possible.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Stechschulte’s performances?

    NEVER


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Amazement: How did this get published?
