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?

    Story
    "Too much of a good thing!"

    This is a very long book, which is not in itself a problem. Although Picoult is clearly an excellent writer, in this case she seems to enjoy her own writing too much. The "surprise" ending to the book is given away at about 2/3 into it. One can only assume this was on purpose, but the reason is not at all clear and to this reader deflated the ending.

    "Beautiful and heartwrenching - a great listen"
    Where does The Storyteller rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ranked amongst my favourites this book really takes you in and you feel desperately for the characters.


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

    It was intense and I appreciated the breaks - but was desperate to get back to it

    Story
    "Stay focused...it's great!"

    Another story that can't be enjoyed without your concentration, but worth the effort. This is not a subject matter I would normally chose, but after having enjoyed MOST of Jodi Picoult's books, I gave this book a whole-hearted listen. I was not disappointed! It was thoughtful & heartfelt, as with all her books.

    "Misrepresented?"
    Would you listen to The Storyteller again? Why?

    I enjoyed the book and am glad I listened to it but it was unclear to me from the summary that it was a holocaust survival story.


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

    Holocaust survival.

    Story
    "could NOT stop listening!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Storyteller the most enjoyable?

    Not only was the story engaging, but having different narrators with authentic (or authentic sounding) accents really made it come to life.


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

    YES! I listen to books while I run and I couldn't not listen between runs.

    Would you listen to The Storyteller again? Why?

    I already started to listen to it again because I wanted to catch the details I may have missed the first time.

    I like them all really.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I thought each narrator really fit their character well and made them come alive.

    It was interesting to hear many of the historic details.

    Story
    "History Lesson"
    Would you listen to The Storyteller again? Why?

    I would not listen again. Not that it is not a good listen, I already know the ending, which is very good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Storyteller?

    The likelyhood of this really happening.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    That would give away a big part of the mystery of the story. I could not wait to hear another chapter (
    Jjust like in the book, know that I think about it!).


    Any additional comments?

    Juat get through the first few paragraphs and you will be hooked!

    Story
    "what a great listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Storyteller to be better than the print version?

    can't answer this because I haven't read it - only listened to it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story kept me enraptured for the full time. I kept waiting until I could listen to the next part.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It was narrated beautifully. What a pleasure to listen to different voices for the different characters instead of just one narrator moderating his/her voice.


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

    No - it is meant to be listened to slowly so that you can enjoy it more.
