    Syd Spicer served with the SAS. He has been trained to overcome pain and fear in all their forms. Well…almost all. Faced with a situation that would normally be passed discreetly to Hereford deliverance consultant Merrily Watkins, Spicer is handling it himself…and coming close to breakdown. Is there a national security aspect here, or is it something more personal? With the framework of her own world beginning to crack, Merrily Watkins is persuaded to venture into areas where neither a priest nor a woman is welcome….

    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?

    Would you listen to The Storyteller again? Why?

    yes to pick up information about the charaters i might have missed when concentrating on the plot


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

    yes. I like the way her charaters are so well rounded you are never sure who will remain to be the most important.
    also the story within the story is captivating.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

The fifth volume in the greatest epic work of the modern age, George R R Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire, this recording is unabridged and split into two parts. The future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance. In the east, Daenerys, last scion of House Targaryen, her dragons grown to terrifying maturity, rules as queen of a city built on dust and death, beset by enemies.
