    A Signature Performance: Leelee Sobieski’s Emma is sultry but vulnerable, offering a sympathetic rendering of the heroine and her plight, allowing the listener to draw his own conclusions about Madame Bovary in this cautionary tale of love, passion, and desperation.

    Very hard to follow and agree with the previous review - kept listening hoping it would get better, and it did not. Stopped after book 1. Darn - wasted credit.

  • The Storyteller

    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 recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes


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

    When the grandmother says to young Sage, "but look what is left of me" - very courageous brave old woman.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Leo and Sage, the playful bantor between these 2 -


    Any additional comments?

    The story telling by the grandmother became long and drawn out. After listening to the horror this woman went through, maybe I just didn't want to believe this could have possibly happened and the brutality continued and continued, but it did. Was it that it was long and drawn out, or did I want it to stop? enough - but it did continue, as did the suffering in reality.

    A chubby little girl with blond hair, blue eyes, and ordinary looks, Victoria Dawson has always felt out of place in her family, especially in body conscious Los Angeles. Her parents are disappointed by their daughter’s looks. Later in life, the one thing Victoria knows is that she has to get as far away from home as possible and, after college in Chicago (which her parents disapprove of), she moves to New York City.

    Great read, could really get the character of Victoria. I think alot of women with weight issues will be able to relate to her and understand that skinny does not equal love and happiness. Really an enjoyable character - I am a Weight Watcher leader and cheered out loud for Victoria!
