    Story
    "I have only started listening and I am mesmerized."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Storyteller to be better than the print version?

    I am only on part 1. I love how I can transfer back and forth between book and audio format. I am completely into this book. The author has done a great job with getting me to be in tune and interested in the characters, from the very beginning. I can't wait to listen to the next chapter. There is a much bigger story unfolding ... I can't wait.

    Story
    "An enthral king story on so many levels"
    Would you listen to The Storyteller again? Why?

    I would find this book hard to listen to again as its realism was very disturbing. A really upsetting story, which needs to told


    What did you like best about this story?

    The three stories intertwined kept the listener enthralled


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

    The holocaust survivor captured my interest. Although the story in the present was also very good.


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

    I found myself listening way into the night


    Any additional comments?

    The ending in so many books is often disappointing. In this novel Jodi Picoult has managed to sustain your interest right to the end and leave one wondering

    "Picoult is back"
    What made the experience of listening to The Storyteller the most enjoyable?

    I do love Jodi Picoult's books, except the one before this one. It was kind of awful, just my thought. I really enjoyed all the characters and loved how the story was told.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Again, I have no opinion.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't really like this question.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I don't know.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't want to stop listening to this book. I very much enjoyed it and recommend listening!

    Story
    "One of Picoult's Best Books Yet"
    Would you listen to The Storyteller again? Why?

    Yes, and I plan on it. There is so much depth to her writing in this book. Normally the way she expounds on a description of a word or feeling comes across as a little cheesy in her other books, but in this book they were perfect and added so much to this poignant and heartbreaking story of so much loss and pain.


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

    The final discovery of the journal. I can't say more without giving it away.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    How does it end?

    "Almost perfect"

    A wonderful, beautifully written sad and compelling story, almost ruined, IMHO, by the end. It simply didn't add to the character, I think, and left a bitter taste in my mouth...

    Still, I loved the journey. The audio edition is excellent, with several narrators.

    "Outstanding - I can't stop listening"
    Where does The Storyteller rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent book. I can't get certain scenes out of my mind. There are many stories interwoven into one, in this book, and the author intermingles the characters so well. Minka's story of Holocaust survival is so riveting and so heart-breaking, I won't soon forget.

    "Jodi Picoult's Best Story!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Storyteller the most enjoyable?

    The variety of readers, the intricate story line, the character development, and the humanness of the characters made this story highly enjoyable! In addition, the detailed information about what daily life was like for Jews in the camps was astonishing. I haven't finished it yet, so I hope the ending is as satisfying as the 'stories within a story'. In any case, I am never disappointed in Jodi P.'s writing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the blend of past, present, romance and fantasy - The Holocaust years written in such detail, the present with Sage and Leo, and the vampire/werewolf.


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

    I liked the way the reader simultaneously portrayed Sage's vulnerability and strength.


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

    Absolutely!


    Any additional comments?

    I am enjoying this story so much that I don't want it to end.

    "A classic Jodi Picoult story"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but I found myself listening to it in smaller bites than I normally would in the same way you'll sneak a few pages during the day in a printed book.
