    Story
    "Surprisingly good!"

    I hadn't read the summary since it was a book I picked as a buy four purchase. So imagine my surprise when it turns out so good. The story weaves you through the current life of the grand daughter of a concentration camp survivor, the grand mother, and the story the grand mother wrote. It took me some time to see where the story was going but the story itself and voice acting completely engulfed me. Every part of the story had purpose and drew me in slowly but surely. This isn't my usual type of book but, I really enjoyed it. And I really feel liked I learned something.

    Story
    "I hung on every word. Loved it!"

    The author painted the visuals and emotions in such a way, I clung to every word, every experience, set back and victory. Perfect voice for Minka, one that begged to be heard. A story with themes that still relate to todays social issues.

    "Another Great Read (Listen) from Picoult"
    Where does The Storyteller rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Great book for audio especially. This is one of the best books I've listened to. All of the readers did a great job, especially that of Minka. I felt like she and I were sitting side by side as she told her story...


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I was immediately pulled in as the plot unfolded, not revealing itself fully into well into the book. The multiple 'main' characters were easy to follow. I found myself anxious to see what would happen next. Minka was an amazingly courageous woman. Hearing about the persucution of the jews overall and of that leading to her eventual imprisonment was difficult to comprehend. The murder of those she loved, and then the horror she had to endure during her years in Nazi prisons was beyond comprehension- that any human could treat another as described was deplorable.. The detailed descriptions of the atrocities she and other jews were subjected to was heart wrenching...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    One of my favorite scenes was when Minka broke free from a prison march and found safe harbor in a country side barn of a german family. Although filthy, starving and near death, sleeping in the hay loft and hiding among the pigs was a tremendous comfort by comparison to the conditions she had been subjected to before her brief escape. When the farmer' s wife discovered Minka hiding in the barn I was sure she would call the authorities; but instead she snuck food to her, and then bathed her and provided clean clothes. I could almost feel Minka's gratitude, as the clean soft cotton blouse draped her sharp boney back.


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

    I would have listened to this in one sitting if possible. A movie would be great!

    "Excellent"

    Once again an excellent read by Jodi Picoult. I have always loved her vivid descriptions and plot turns. I was absolutely mesmerized by this one. The horror of the story she paints for us, flipping between fantasy and the awful reality of the holucost was spell binding. The time in the concentration camp became the accident you are horrified to see but can't turn away from.
    This includes a plot twist you come to expect from her, a great read overall.

    "Great story!"

    An intertwining of three stories. A reminder that we are each morally responsible for our actions. Wonderful narrators make it a great listen.
