    It is 1648, a small village in the Alps: In the thick of a blizzard,a town priest discovers he’s been poisoned. As numbness creeps up his body, he summons the last of his strength and scratches a sign in the frost that will lead the town hangman, his daughter, and the town physician in pursuit of a treasure of the Knights Templar. But the priest’s murderer is already on their trail, and he’s not the only one after the legendary fortune: a dark monk is not far behind,and a band of thieves is roving the countryside, attacking solitary travelers and spreading panic.

    I just got bored. The story was she gets jealous (old tired storyline!) Things happen but don't really draw you in. It just felt like going around a round a bout with no direction.

    It's the end of the roaring twenties, and the exuberant and Honourable Phryne Fisher is dancing and gaming with gay abandon. But she becomes bored with London and the endless round of parties. In search of excitement, she sets her sights on a spot of detective work in Melbourne, Australia. And so mystery and the beautiful Russian dancer, Sasha de Lisse, appear in her life. From then on it's all cocaine and communism until her adventure reaches its steamy end in the Turkish baths of Little Lonsdale Street.

    I don't known, it was to trite. I'm not crazy about the lead character Phryne.

    You couldn't really tell about Mama's brain just from looking at her, but it was obvious as soon as she spoke. She had a high voice, like a little girl's, and she only knew 23 words. I know this for a fact, because we kept a list of the things Mama said tacked to the inside of the kitchen cabinet. Most of the words were common ones, like good and more and hot, but there was one word only my mother said, soof.

    It's a touching story and worth the listen. I'm glad I spent the 4 hours on this one.

    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?

    Story
    Would you listen to The Storyteller again? Why?

    No, I enjoyed it, but I rarely reread books. This one isn't uplifting or funny, so it doesn't need a second visit


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The details of what the concentration camps were like were fascinating.


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

    I loved the mixture of the narrators. That kept me interested in the book


    Any additional comments?

    It's a good book, it's not uplifting and I didn't agree with the main characters actions. In some ways, it took me a while to get her and I'm not sure I ever really embraced her. I actually could "get" the other characters better for what ever reason. It's well written and interesting but it did get long.
