    "wasted credit.... for me"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can't really say because I only got 5 hrs in and that was too much


    Has The Storyteller turned you off from other books in this genre?

    What is the genre of a book like this ... vampires ???


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    Anybody would have been better

    "The Story Teller - Awesome"

    This book was one of the best books I have listened to yet. The narration as well as the storyline was fantastic. The book gave me a better understanding of the Holocoust (informative) and what happened during that time. I could not put my earphones down, even snuck them into work because I had to finish the book. I would recommend this book highly.

    "Wonderful Story"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I just finished reading Ken Follet's Winter of the World and this was another interesting angle on the same subject.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Ken Follet - Dangerous Fortune.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    Yes - I like Jodi's work although I find I need to take a break between novels.


    What character would you cut from The Storyteller?

    None. All Characters were necessary - but I did feel the performer doing the Grandmother was right. She is very good but just didn't make me think of the grandmother - perhaps to young to be the grandmother.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the book. Felt sad to be finished!

    "slow to start, but worth the wait"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It took me quite a while to get into this book. Not until they started telling the stories of Joseph and Minka did the story really begin comming together. After that, Sage's story became more interesting as well.

    "unbelievable!!"

    this book was magnificent. it has it all - food, horror, mystery, romance - just don't read it if you cannot handle hearing some of the more tragic details of the holocaust (it was hard to read several places, i wasn't sure i could make it through, but am glad i did).

    "Fantastic, and so unlike Jodi Picoult..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Storyteller to be better than the print version?

    did not read the printed version.

    I did not expect the book like this from my favorite author. It is so different from the others! BUT: It is absolutely GREAT!!!! Of course it is very heavy, not a "summer read" but it is so well done! I was born in Poland and this subject is not foreign to me. I have read many books about Auschvitz survivers. This book is so captivating, so well written - and so, it is valuable to the young generations... I have read all Jodi's books, whereas many were my favorites, this one sticks out with its severity and a serious content, it is a heavy load, yet absolutely worth reading!!!! It brings me the recollection of "The Schindler's List"....


    What did you like best about this story?

    Honesty, likelihood that this is a true story...It reads like a real recount of historical events, but one feels to be part of it....


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    It was OK, but the book's content overshadowed the narration. Probably it was good, since it was such a pleasure to listen!


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

    I almost did!!!! I have read it in 2 days (or less).


    Any additional comments?

    Yet another splendid book by Jodi Picoult! Do not miss out on this one!

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

    It was fairly easy to take a break..but I really looked forwards to my "book time". A really good book.

    "Engrossing story"
    Would you listen to The Storyteller again? Why?

    I'm not one to re-listen to books, but with The Storyteller, I would find myself replaying chapters at a time. The story is very moving and the dialogue completely captures you.


    What did you like best about this story?

    No spoilers, but the ending is beautiful, haunting and both gives you closure, but also illuminates possibilities of the storylines left unwritten.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    All of the characters were interesting - the thing about Jody's books are that her people are so multi-dimensional. This makes them unpredictable and in this case, the story more wrenching. Minka's voice stands out. incredible, the nuances, accent and inflection were flawless.
