    "Excellent book! Everyone should listen!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is an amazing story that everyone should taken a listen to. It helps put into perspective what it meant to live in the concentration camps during WWII, and raises the question.. what is justice, and how should justice be executed.

    "Very good book"

    Although I saw the ending coming from a mile away, I still really enjoyed what the author put into this book. Very perceptive, deep and creative.

    "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

    "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.

    "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.

    "beautiful! loved everything about it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I already have!


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

    Have read many on this subject but it's incomparable to anything I've read


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Part II Minka's story. I couldn't stop listening. I cried a few times. I could picture everything. Beautifully descriptive.


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

    Hmmm all of it but I would have to say to say minka's relationship with Frank


    Any additional comments?

    I'm going to buy the book so i can always have it to read again
