    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 disappointed you about The Storyteller?

    I couldn't finish this book. The descriptions of the Holocaust were just too graphic.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jodi Picoult again?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I am normally a fan of Jodi Picoult, having read all her books to date. This is the first I have not been able to finish because of the story. She asks the reader to sympathize with a Nazi war criminal, attempting to explain what made him follow orders to do unspeakable things. The premise is all right, because clearly the protagonist is not going to excuse what he did, but I just couldn't stomach the descriptions of his actions. I never even got to the story of the title character, which presumably is more of the same. It was just plain too much!!
