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?

I enjoyed the writing and the characters, but not the topic. Had I known this had so much graphic description of the holocaust, I would never have ordered.
Of course the accents
Personally, no. As I said before, I really didn't like subject.
I think somewhere in the review it should be mentioned that approximately a third of the book is devoted to the brutality of the holocaust. Had I been reading the book it would have been easier to just skip those parts. Unfortunately, I will not recommend this book to anyone.
This was a well told story from multiple point of views. Jodi Picoult weaves fact with fiction with well developed characters. I could not stop listening to this book!
This book was perfect to listen to the narrators were all faultless. The story was sad, happy, devastating and kept me up for hours. this will not be a wast of a credit.. This was my first Jodie picoult and won't be my last..
Great, thought provoking!
Minka, could not imagine going through all that she had.
Everything, I do not read books. The German accents and pronunciations would not have been the same.
A movie you won't forget!
I actually liked the book better the second time I listened to it.
The characters and plot were very interesting. I recommend this book. How does one scarred person feel in public? Is it common for a concentration camp survivor to remember so many details? Is punishment ever too late? Never thought that in my overly busy schedule I would be considering these.
Psychologist and book lover
One of the best ones
yes...the characters were very interesting
the different voices for different characters were spot on
The Storyteller is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to. Jodi Picoult at her brilliant best.
The book tells a story of the Holocaust, which in my mind must NEVER be forgotten , but with great sensitivity. Alongside the characters I love, laugh and weep. Thank you Jodi.
I have read all of Jodi Picoult's books and, like many others here, thoroughly enjoyed them with the exception of The Lone Wolf. I am truly a fan and watch for each new book to arrive. The atrocities in this story make it so difficult to listen to at times but it is such a compelling story and so well written that I couldn't stop listening.
The narration is first rate and adds much to the book. I have to say that my favorite character in this book is Leo - I just loved him! I would like to have a sequel to this book from his life and point of view.
The underlying theme of the nature and act of forgiveness is presented in such a thought provoking way toward the end of the book that makes you introspective. What would you do? I think you have to ask yourself what Minka would have done had she known all of the facts. She was a character with such strength and endurance but also realism and understanding.
Great job, Jodi, in creating characters that will stay with the reader and add such personal perspective to history. There are a couple of other observations I'd like to mention, but no one likes a spoiler.
Well worth the time and a credit!
Listens to whatever keeps me thrilled, and then surprise the living life out of me :)
Eye-Opener .. Thrilling .. Emotional
the storyteller herself .. as an old women ,, you can't but cry with her words.
The first time she told her story ..
cry .. knowing that after all those years he found her.
another moment is where he confesses to letting his brother die in front of him.
gotta listen to this book to enjoy .. don't just read it .. An Amazing performance !
