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.
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.
The detailed information describing the concentration camps. So sad, you could feel Menka's pain.
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!!
Yes because I have enjoyed previous books, particularly ones dealing with relevant topics.
It seemed too uncoordinated
The narrators made the characters seem real
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.
Say something about yourself!
I could not put this down. This story continues to be on my mind even though I finished it weeks ago.
Life's good when I am listening to a great book.
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.
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!
Didn't read the print version but loved the narrator.
Yes, it was hard to press pause, didn't want to give up the experience.
No, a chore
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.
The narrator was as good, just a dull , boring story
I like the author, she is better than this.
Have always loved her books but this one was disappointing. Too much skipping around which caused me too lose interest multiple times. Finally gave up and tried to return but system seemed to want to force me to call and explain my reasons.
Marrator seemed as disinterested in the book as I was.
