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?

    Any additional comments?

    Many things can be taken away from this book and so not to spool it for any one, I will only review on the main thing I gained from this story. Many have forgotten the true horror and brutality of the Holocaust, thank you Jodi Picoult for painting a real and touching reminder in respect to the Jews who survived and those that did not... May God have mercy and never allow humans to repeat this kind of hate and ignorance again.....

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

    It was dark, but an amazing story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The weaving of two stories within one.


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

    No, but it was wonderful.


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

    The atrocities committed against Jews as described in this story.


    Any additional comments?

    It is quite intense and took me a while to listen as I could only deal with small portions at a time.

    "Her Best!"

    Simply her best novel to date. I recommend it to everyone. My only negative is the number of readers -- it was not always obvious which character was 'speaking'.

    Story
    "Too much backstory"

    This book could have been two separate novels. I lost interest in the main story after hours of nonstop backstory, which could have been a novel on its own.

    Story
    "Completely unexpected."
    If you could sum up The Storyteller in three words, what would they be?

    Not my type.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I would not have chosen this book. I read it almost accidentally. I purchased the wrong title but read it anyway (without reading the reviews or the story line). I listened with shock, enjoyment and anticipation the whole way through. I have since recommended this book to my bookclub and to anyone else who reads. I have no regrets reading this book - and had a hard time putting it down.

    Story
    "Totally engrossing"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because I couldn't stop listening to it. The story really hooks you and pulls you in.


    Any additional comments?

    Altogether, the plot of the book is a little predictable. I guessed a lot of what was going to happen next because the foreshadowing used in the story is really obvious. The flow of the story was good though. I liked the direction of it. I will probably listen to this story again down the road.

    "Best way to 'read' this book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I listen to a great deal of books on audible. I found this book's characters and who narrated as each character added so much to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed this one!

    Story
    "I could have made it an easy five - But"

    But the ending didn't pan out exactly as I had hoped.... It came out the way I expected - It just went a little around the houses to get there, and in an order I would have liked to have seen different. How old am I really right? Around the houses - Yikes..... I can't explain it better. I think there could have been alternate endings.
    I was riveted through the first two part and most of the third.... I mean riveted.. The story was told wonderfully. It confirmed once again how good my life is and how bad it could have been if I was born in any other time period. Or if i was born another color, Or if I was born in another country. My worst wouldn't compare to some peoples best. This book was full of strength and resolve. I am very glad I downloaded this book.

    Time for me is the biggest commodity and I'm very stingy with it. I love the fact that I don't have to sit still to read a book.

    "Highly Recommend!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Storyteller to be better than the print version?

    I never read the print version so I can't compare it with the audio edition. However, I have to say that I enjoyed this book tremendously. The voices were outstanding, the story was beyond compare. I learned a lot from this book as well.


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

    No comparisons.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The way they tied up all the loose ends at the end of the book was perfect.


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

    I didn't laugh or cry just....ahhhh


    Any additional comments?

    Don't miss out on this one!!
