    It's 1939, in New York City. Joe Kavalier, a young artist who has also been trained in the art of Houdiniesque escape, has just pulled off his greatest feat: smuggling himself out of Hitler's Prague. He's looking to make big money, fast, so that he can bring his family to freedom. His cousin, Brooklyn's own Sammy Clay, is looking for a partner in creating the heroes, stories, and art for the latest novelty to hit the American dreamscape: the comic book. Inspired by their own fantasies, fears, and dreams, they create the Escapist.

    Would you listen to The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay again? Why?

    Maybe, I don't tend to re-read anything.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay?

    Just following the characters through life. Being happy for them and sad with them and even disappointed in their decisions.


    Which character – as performed by David Colacci – was your favorite?

    Sam and Joe were equally enjoyable. I really felt myself rooting for them to succeed.


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

    This book made me laugh and cry.


    Any additional comments?

    A great book and a great narration. It was long so it lasted awhile but not boring. The information about the comic books was interesting too. I was hesitant to download because I'm not a comic book fan, but Im so glad I did this book was about so much more. I did have to make sure I was paying attention or else I would get lost and miss transitions.

    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 did you love best about The Storyteller?

    Everything


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Storyteller?

    Hearing the story from multiple view points. Feeling love and fear, anger and joy for the characters.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    All the narrators were top notch. They made the story come to life


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    there were many moments that moved me. I cried several times listening to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I saw some reviews that questioned the "vampire" part of the story. I wonder if these people listened all the way through and I realize that it doesn't make sense reading reviews but just trust me, it does. This story was beautiful. There are some very painful things that happen to the characters (stories of concentration camps), but isn't that was reading a book is about? Having empathy for the characters and feeling their joys and sorrows?
