    "Not to be missed"
    If you could sum up The Storyteller in three words, what would they be?

    weaving our history


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

    No, this was the first. Pure pleasure to ride along on this riveting journey


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

    Make you realize our emotions tied to events are not separated by more than a degree or a small bakery.

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

    This was one of the best books I've read and my first Jodi Picoult. I haven't read her work as I have heard they are sad. While a story involving the Holocost is not a happy one, this story is one of courage, life and luck. It was very well worth reading and not a true tear jerker.

    "Great Book!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Excellent book!! Jodi Picoult is an AMAZING author. All of her books including Storyteller are awesome!! From the first page to the last there was never a dull moment. I didn't want the book to end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The detailed information describing the concentration camps. So sad, you could feel Menka's pain.


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

    No


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

    Yes. Although it's my reason to exercise. If I don't exercise then I don't get to listen to a book. Kept me motivated everyday to burn some calories while listening to a great book!!

    "A compelling read"
    Any additional comments?

    The Storyteller skillfully intertwines multiple story lines into a compelling tale about guilt, forgiveness, and retribution.The voice talent on this audio book drew me in and kept me listening. My only criticism of the book was the ending--it seemed hasty and abrupt--and the final actions of the main characters seemed inconsistent with the the rest of the book.

    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.

    "DISAPPOINTING"

    I will no longer automatically choose a book from Jodi Picoult. The characters were uninteresting and predictable. I found the whole book tiresome and the narrator's attempt to duplicate a Jewish accent fell far short of the mark. Boring!

    I have loved being read to as long as I can remember. With limited time in my life for reading, listening to novel on audio is like a dream come true. Love it!

    Yes, it was hard to press pause, didn't want to give up the experience.

    "Jodi's dissapointing"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, a chore


    What was most disappointing about Jodi Picoult’s story?

    It did not hold my interest, I read three others going back to try to finish and finally gave up. It was depressing to me. Trying to pick up the story line was impossible.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was as good, just a dull , boring story


    Do you think The Storyteller needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I like the author, she is better than this.
