    I love suspense, murder mysteries, psycho thriller books most of all! I listen when not taking classes for my masters degree.

    "Not what I expect but so much more!"

    This book was exceptional. When I read the brief summary I only thought that it should be interesting. This story had me reeling through all my emotions. Ms. Picoult is such a great descriptive writer that I thought I was there in many of scenes described

    "Great Listen!"

    Just enough twists to keep you interested but not enough to make it implausible. A great story teller telling a great story! Picoult has won a new fan here.

    "Another Excellent Jodi Picoult Novel!"

    Excellent Narration brought this story to life and makes you feel like you are in the moment. You will catch yourself smiling, grinding your teeth in anger, making faces of disgust, but most importantly you will ponder the meaning of love,compassion and forgiveness. I highly recommend this book. 5 stars all the way.

    Story
    "Bipolar or Two different narrators?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I am about half way through trying to decided whether I want to move on to another book. The story line is okay but I wouldn't recommend this audio version to someone.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jodi Picoult? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would be willing to try another one of her books.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Twice now, the voice of the narrator will change and suddenly it is another voice reading an entirely different story.


    Could you see The Storyteller being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    The story started out pretty slow. I am just now getting interested in it.


    Any additional comments?

    I am sure this is a decent book. Like mentioned above, pretty slow but obviously this is a bad narration since another book hops in periodically. Because I am cheap, I will probably continue to listen just because I want my money's worth.

    "Too predictable"

    While the performance is phenomenal, the story is very predictable. I enjoyed the book and was deeply disturbed by the stories of the Holocaust. It was riveting. Not an easy listen/read because of this. I wish the story overall had not been so predictable in the end.

    "Great story with a twist"

    The story is filled with episodes that are thrilling, heartbreaking, and even funny... Sometimes all at the same time. The character portrayals are rich and believable.

    Story
    "Great but very disturbing."

    The story is very engaging and well written and the narration is perfect. However, beware, it is a holocaust story and it doesn't hold back. There are scenes from this story that may haunt forever. I am not convinced it's a good thing to understand how monstrous humans can be or how tragic a life. Perhaps, to fill our heads with such truths is a waste of a good life. Is it wise to borrow sorrow, disgust and rage?
