    "Excellent Book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Storyteller to be better than the print version?

    The audio was moving and told the story incredibly.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sage Singer and Minka. Strong women yet tender hearted and loving. Their life stories were real and you could relate to their feelings and unforgiveness and forgiveness. It was moving to hear what they were going through.


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

    Minka


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

    Yes it was because it held my interest, could not stop listening!


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best audio books I have listened to

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Storyteller to be better than the print version?

    It brings the characters to life, and transmits the feelings they are having, as the story unfolds.

    "Completely unexpected."
    If you could sum up The Storyteller in three words, what would they be?

    Not my type.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I would not have chosen this book. I read it almost accidentally. I purchased the wrong title but read it anyway (without reading the reviews or the story line). I listened with shock, enjoyment and anticipation the whole way through. I have since recommended this book to my bookclub and to anyone else who reads. I have no regrets reading this book - and had a hard time putting it down.

    "Totally engrossing"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because I couldn't stop listening to it. The story really hooks you and pulls you in.


    Any additional comments?

    Altogether, the plot of the book is a little predictable. I guessed a lot of what was going to happen next because the foreshadowing used in the story is really obvious. The flow of the story was good though. I liked the direction of it. I will probably listen to this story again down the road.

    "Best way to 'read' this book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I listen to a great deal of books on audible. I found this book's characters and who narrated as each character added so much to this book.

    Really enjoyed this one!

    "Highly Recommend!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Storyteller to be better than the print version?

    I never read the print version so I can't compare it with the audio edition. However, I have to say that I enjoyed this book tremendously. The voices were outstanding, the story was beyond compare. I learned a lot from this book as well.


    What other book might you compare The Storyteller to and why?

    No comparisons.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The way they tied up all the loose ends at the end of the book was perfect.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't laugh or cry just....ahhhh


    Any additional comments?

    Don't miss out on this one!!
