    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?

    Stunning historical account. Unfortunately believable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Transported seventy years past, Annya quickens the reader to live life with her in 1940's Europe. Captivating.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    An uwilling but dertermined, Sage, pulls the reader through the weavings of times past & present.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Thoughts of tomorrow are wasted - I think only of today."


    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed in Jodi Picoult's solution to the realistic journey for the Storyteller. A let down to be sure.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Story

    A profoundly simple, accurate and heartfelt account of truth revealed in the pantry's of Mississippi through the heartbeat of an unassuming college graduate who discovers herself to be an unlikely hero reveling in life as she lived it in 1962. Toted as fiction the gongs of truth ring loud for americans from sea to sea and border to border.
    The well defined spiderwebs of predjudice and courage spring forth from this excellent portrayal of honesty.
    A must read.
    A must remember.
    A must pass on.
