    Story
    "I'm a wife, a mom, a student and a lover of books"
    What did you love best about The Storyteller?

    Everything


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

    Hearing the story from multiple view points. Feeling love and fear, anger and joy for the characters.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    All the narrators were top notch. They made the story come to life


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

    there were many moments that moved me. I cried several times listening to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I saw some reviews that questioned the "vampire" part of the story. I wonder if these people listened all the way through and I realize that it doesn't make sense reading reviews but just trust me, it does. This story was beautiful. There are some very painful things that happen to the characters (stories of concentration camps), but isn't that was reading a book is about? Having empathy for the characters and feeling their joys and sorrows?

    "Sad does not cover this story"

    I battled to finish this book. The narrators had to be tired when they finished I felt they did a wonderful job with a story that hurt to read. I have told a couple of friends not to read this as I could not pick up a book for several days...shell shocked...SAD SAD SAD

    Story
    "Wonderful Story!"
    What did you love best about The Storyteller?

    So very many things were impressive about this book..........Mika's description of her experience in Auschwitz was spellbinding, descriptive, sad and even made me want to be ill a few times.............emotionally engrossing. I suppose I never gave it much thought what actually happened to the victims of Auschwitz's personal effects and I am blown away at what other prisoners had to sort through on a daily basis. Horrible! Very well written.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I fell in love with the character of Mika.....she is unforgettable. A rather predicatable twist at the end, but still very engrossing. I really enjoyed listening to this book.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    There were several, all wonderful and fit the specific characters very well. This book was very well read and I enjoyed it very much with the multi-character presentation.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, like I said earlier, I was feeling ill at a point in Mika's story and also so very sad, to the point of tears, for Mika and her best friend and her fellow prisoners. There was a point where I actually felt sorry at the end, with Josef.

    Since I listened to this book on audio, I don't know if I am spelling the names of the characters properly here, but you will know who I mean if you are reading it.


    Any additional comments?

    You won't be sorry you read this book.

    "Jodi Picoult is a "Storyteller""

    I have read Jodi Picoult's books previously, but none of them holds a candle to this. The way she weaves her story between characters is truly amazing. One note of caution, the explicit details of WWII are extremely vivid which where difficult to get thru. However, Picoult keeps the reader so involved in the story, the results are worth it.

    "WOW If you only read one book this year this is it"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Absoluteley! it starts slow, but as the story unfolds, you will not be able to put this one down.


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

    Very well researched, great ending! Much different than I thought it would be. A lot of history, and it leaves you thinking, "what would I do?"


    Any additional comments?

    This book is not a waste of credits. Very gripping, an eye opener! A definite must!

    Where does The Storyteller rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book way exceeded my expectations. It was well written and the characters were very interesting. The story was complicated - in a good way. The plot and ending was not predictable and the narration was great!

    Story
    "Couldn't wait to get back to it each day"

    I love a good Nazi-hunting story, and while that was just a portion of this narrative, it offered up a moving tale of Holocaust survival and all the pain and horror that implies. The story was interesting, the performances were outstanding, and it was well worth the time I spent listening to it. I found myself looking forward to opportunities in the car when I could slip back into the lives of Minke and Sage.

    Story
    "It's Pretty Good."

    I have read many of Jodi Picoult's novels. This one ranked not as good as her first novel but certainly better than many given the difficult subject matter. As a story, I thought it was pretty good and held my interest but did get a bit fantastical. As a Holocaust study, I would say that it was a good way for a teen-ager to learn about the atrocities and magnitude of the crimes against mankind which took place in WWII. Also, the novel presented some important questions and food for thought about justice and forgiveness in an interesting manner. Overall, it held my interest but might be better suited for a teenage audience.
