I have never been much of a Jodi Picoult fan but thought I would give this book a go because of the many positive reviews. I am so pleased that I did! It is easily the most moving audiobook that I have listened to.
Three stories in one, the book was not what I expected and truth be told, I probably would not have purchased it if I had paid more attention to the subject matter. Fortunately, I did purchase it and was hooked from the very beginning.
Not light listening but certainly a captivating story wriiten by a masterful storyteller.
Bravo Ms Picoult.
I almost didn't buy this book - I am tired of Picoult's formula writing. This book is so beautifully told, so beautifully written. It is a must read for everyone. I expect to request that my children read it when they are older. It tells of horror and the will to survive. It is one of the best "fictional" books of a terrible time in our world that I have ever read.
The narration is beautiful. The story is believable. The facts are well researched. You cannot stop listening....
I have read all her books, and found this to be one of my least favorite. I did enjoy the perspective on the Nazi Camps.
Read a different title first
Narrators were fine
yes to pick up information about the charaters i might have missed when concentrating on the plot
yes. I like the way her charaters are so well rounded you are never sure who will remain to be the most important.
also the story within the story is captivating.
i was very interested in the theme of forgiveness and evil...
Say something about yourself!
Sage. I loved the way she worked through her pangs of conscience to arrive at a moral decision even though she did not believe in God.
I was Moved at every turn, from curiousity to disgust, depression to relief and satisfaction. I enjoyed the plot and sub-plots. This author îs very tallented.
One of the best books I've ever listened to. Something for every kind of listener. The performers were excellent in their portrayals. It felt like I was hearing it directly from the characters.
Yes.......I love history and history has a dark side and Jodi did her research....facts were expressed that only one who cared enough to tell a completely fact based story could do.
The different performers and their geniune accents made it seem like I was experiencing it.
I wanted to but could not. Had to tear myself away.
Highest praise for Jodi Picoult's "The Storyteller." Beautifully written, heart-wrenching, eye-opening. Picoult expertly weaves the threads together.
JP out did herself with this book! Unable to fathum what the jews went through but I believe she was pretty close without being to graphic.
Honestly one of the best audio book I have heard in a long time. You will keep thinking about the characters long after it is over.
