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?

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Good Story - parts were hard to hear"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes


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

    When the grandmother says to young Sage, "but look what is left of me" - very courageous brave old woman.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Leo and Sage, the playful bantor between these 2 -


    Any additional comments?

    The story telling by the grandmother became long and drawn out. After listening to the horror this woman went through, maybe I just didn't want to believe this could have possibly happened and the brutality continued and continued, but it did. Was it that it was long and drawn out, or did I want it to stop? enough - but it did continue, as did the suffering in reality.

    Story
    "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

    Story
    "Stay focused...it's great!"

    Another story that can't be enjoyed without your concentration, but worth the effort. This is not a subject matter I would normally chose, but after having enjoyed MOST of Jodi Picoult's books, I gave this book a whole-hearted listen. I was not disappointed! It was thoughtful & heartfelt, as with all her books.

    Story
    "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.
