Absolutely. Since reading all of Gillian Flynn's work, I have been searching for a novel that lived up to her standard of literary brilliance. The Storyteller delivered. Between the powerful characters, raw emotion, and stunning performances by all the narrators, this audiobook and I have formed an intimate relationship. It has captured my undivided attention and I feel as though I am cheating on it when I read other books.
Nearly impossible question. They are all so real-- it's like deciding which piece of the sky is your favorite. You need them ALL.
With multiple narrators, there is sometimes an issue of one narrator out-performing others. All of these narrators, however, worked together so beautifully-- each one as talented as the last, which offered a seamless performance.
Laugh, cry, cringe, nearly vomit, but always hopeful
You will not regret buying this.
What then, of human nature?
The revelation of Sonmi's setup. I should have have seen natural building of power (and consequently, the building of suppression) but I am too optimistic at heart. It was like civilization finally came to EMBRACE human nature for all of it's evil. I was not ready for that reality-- although fictional. It's profound.
I absolutely loved Robert Frobisher... he was eccentric, reflective, and deeply moving.
