Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Drawn out"

    As usual Ms Picoult 's story is well researched and interesting. She draws it out so long that it becomes a chore to get to the end. The analogies were great. The twist in the end was not suspected. Speed up the time as you listen to it!

    "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.

    "All the Right Elements"

    This book had all the right elements for a great read: it was a good story that had many levels, the writing was good, there were lessons about history, as well as philosophical or ethical questions to ponder.

    I loved the way there were 3 different stories going on at once. First there is the story of Sage and her struggle with how to interact with Joseph Weber and her meeting Leo. Then there is Minka’s story of the Upior, based on an old Polish fairy tale. This was interesting as a parallel and a metaphor for many of the actions and horrors that occurred in the book. The third and, to me, the most dramatic story was that of Minka herself and her path into and finally out of two different German concentration camps. The author very skillfully weaves these 3 story lines together in such a way that each story line adds to and helps to develop the other.

    Spoiler alert here: I had trouble putting the book down! If I have any criticism, it’s with the ending. I’m not sure that the big switch in the character of Joseph Weber at the end was necessary or very well explained. Also, the idea that Sage pulls off her final act but seems to have no intention of sharing it or talking about it with Leo seems unrealistic. OR perhaps I’m unconvinced that she really could or would pull off this final decision. I feel like this final section was, perhaps, rushed or underdeveloped in relation to all that had come before. However, this didn't spoil my enjoyment of the book overall.

    I highly recommend it.
